The survival rifle is a very neat concept but in actual practice the Marlin will most likely be more accurate & reliable. I've played with the survival rifles and found them to be very fickle on loads they like.

I live in the hills of Kentucky and I own both of these and when I go camping I prefer my papoose over the survival rifle any day or weather

"survival rifle" is not a very good name for these rifles. Take one apart and see how cheaply made they are(and easily broken). Not something I would want to depend on. That said I do own one. Its under the seat in my truck(good for that). Mine functions very good and my friends also works fine. But if it was a survival situation I would want a bolt action or my old Remington model 4. You would want something that would not break.

I don't own either one but have examined examples of both. If I were to ever buy either one it would be the Papoose without a doubt.

However, I doubt that I will ever buy either. If I wanted a .22 survival gun, I think my S & W Model 317 revolver would be ideal. It is an eight shot, double action, adjustable sight, three inch barrel revolver. It is the Airlight model, weighing less than 10 ounces. It rides on my hip in a holster and is so light you forget its there until you need it. It never gets in the way of anything I try to do. Its small enough you can even conceal it in a medium sized pocket.

Another possibility would be my Ruger Single Six. It has both .22 LR and .22 mag cylinders with a six inch barrel. However it is obviously bigger and heavier. Also it is only six shot and is slower to reload. Just not as handy.

For a rifle, either my Marlin 39A Golden Mountie or my Ruger 10/22 would work. The Marlin's advantage is that it can cycle any standard .22 ammo (shorts, longs, or long rifles). The Ruger's advantage is that it is faster to reload with extra magazines and can use large capacity mags and is semi auto for faster repeat shots.
