(Pic #1 attached) but price tag is $400 which I think is a bit pricey for what your getting,even if built solidly. I've seen a carbon fiber conversion for the cricket rifles (pics # 2&3) but those also fetch a price tag twice that of the cricket.
I reeeally like the SA m6 scout but those are just plain to expensive for me to pay for a .22
Any one know of any other good rifles for a bug out bag?
The Pack-Rifle manufactured in Logan UT looks perfect.
I guess they developed this design for local backpacking.
$425 is not a bad price either.
I would want the peep sight on it not a scope. There is just too much parallax with a scope for close-in 50 yards or less shooting.http://www.packrifle.com/contactus.html
