U.S. Survival AR-7. Don't Leave Civilization Without One
Since 1959, the venerable AR-7 survival rifle has been the choice of U.S. Air Force pilots who need a small-caliber rifle they can count on for survival should they have to punch out over a remote area. Over the years, the AR-7's reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world as well. Today, it's a favorite of bush pilots, backpackers and backcountry adventurers who, like their Air Force counterparts, need a rifle that's easy to carry but has the accuracy to reliably take down small game.

Like the original Henry US Survival Rifle, our latest take on this innovative, semi-automatic rifle is lightweight (just 2.5 lbs) and highly portable. At just 16 ½" long (when all the components are stowed), it fits easily into the cargo area of a plane or boat or in a backpack. And because it's chambered in .22LR you can carry a large quantity of ammunition, without adding much weight to your gear.

The Henry Survival Rifle’s waterproof stock enables it to float if dropped into water. It can be easily retrieved and will still function. When disassembled, the pieces fit inside the impact-resistant, waterproof stock, which will float should it take a trip overboard. Assembly is as easy as attaching the receiver to the stock, inserting the barrel and screwing on the barrel nut. In just a few seconds, without the need for any tools, the Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is ready for action.
The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 comes standard with a sturdy steel barrel covered in tough ABS plastic and then coated with Teflon for complete protection against corrosion. Plus, it's engineered for perfect balance and the ability to maintain its tack-driving accuracy, even after thousands of rounds.
Like the barrel, the receiver is also coated with a layer of waterproof Teflon for superior weatherproofing, waterproof protection, even in harsh salt water environments. Plus, the updated receiver is grooved making it easy to top it off with your favorite optics.
The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is available in Black finish only. All models are equipped with an adjustable rear sight and a blade front sight.

  • LOL....who writes these reviews anyway

    Posted by Oly on Feb 27th 2017

    I've been thinking to buy one of these for my grandson and I ALWAYS do my research before going out to buy anything...including reading reviews. You have to read the review that was written Feb. 11, 2015 by Phred (Ph sounds like a F......Fred....get it?) from West....nothing but complaints but still gives it 5 stars? So, he's either on some good drugs and won't share, he's a joker or he's not too bright by not figuring out the rating system.....
    I'll put money on it that this will get my grandson started with plinking.....

  • Better Than The Original

    Posted by Rimfire Rifleman on Oct 2nd 2016

    Well, I waited for many years, but I finally purchased one of these awesome little rifles. I was an A-10 Crew Chief in the Air Force and this was, and still is included as standard issue survival gear for all A-10 pilots, and for good reason. They work. This ingenious firearm was custom built to meet and exceed the mil-spec for aircrew survival weapons. Henry has made numerous changes and refinements to the original design that have resulted in an improved rifle. This modern variation now has better sights and includes a built in rail for mounting optics if desired. Personally, I will leave mine stock. I will include this in my own survival pack along with a waterproof can of 325 rounds of Federal, 36 gr HP ammunition among other essential items. Oh, and by the way it shoots very nicely! I sighted it in at 50 yards with Federal Champion ammo and was getting groups between 1" - 2" off hand shooting which plenty good enough to be point-of-kill. I also purchased a 3rd spare clip which can be loaded into the magazine while stored! This allows for me to have 24 rounds available for quick, quiet deployment and in any weather. Sweet!
    Please do yourself a favor and buy one of these rifles. We live in perilous times. The world is a dangerous place. You just may have to defend your life and the lives of others someday. This is a compact and lightweight rifle that is easily concealable and portable and is designed to operate reliably under harsh conditions in order to survive and live to fight another day...

  • henry ar7

    Posted by tyler harnish on Mar 2nd 2016

    I just got one of these rifles and I DO NOT HAVE ONE COMPLAINT. I love this little gun I have shot about 150 rounds through it nit one problem yet the accuracy is great I hit every thing I was aiming at from 10 yards to 50 yards I have no problem with my front sight either and the buttcap has not fallen off yet either I have nothing bad to say the trigger is heavy but after a few shots I forgot all about it so no problem for me I also didn't have to move the sughts at all dead on right out of the box I think people who have a problem with this gun just like to complain period good job henry keep it up great little fun reliable rifle

  • Horrible trigger, shoots too low to adjust.

    Posted by Phred on Feb 10th 2015

    My Henry Survival shoots way too low. Can't adjust the peep to compensate. The trigger is the worst, just awful, but it does appear to have a defective sear. How did this get out of the factory? I gave up on the Henry and bought a two piece Ruger 10/22. Love it 'cause it works.

  • Better than I expected

    Posted by Hugo on Dec 24th 2014

    Just came from the range.Put a few hundred rounds through it. Accuracy was not quite as good as my 10/22 but better than I expected. No jams with Federal bulk ammo and Remington Thunderbolt high velocity. Well worth the money.

  • Not a toy good weapon

    Posted by Be ready on Apr 23rd 2014

    Exactly what I was expecting and what I paid for.
    It does what it supposes to do.
    Fits nicely in the back pack light it does float.
    Straight shooting if misses is because of me not the gun.
    No jams yet that is good buy one won't regret it.
    Thanks Impact guns to make it available.

  • Don't believe the negativity

    Posted by Wrecks_Ryan on Mar 12th 2013

    I rarely post reviews on products unless i had the occasional bad experience and to warn people...but this is NOT why i want to add my 2 cents about the Henry AR-7. There is so much conflicting reviews (lot of negative) but keep in mind this is a NEWLY revamped model of an old design that previously had flaws. This little .22 is a fun, functional, accurate, and reliable survival rifle by every stretch of the imagination (especially for the price!)...get one and you will love it. And as always Do not expect to get a BMW for the price of a KIA and you will never be let down.

    Also to the person who posted about wishing it could fit a 50box in the stock, check into the Catch .22 ammo holders....they are REALLY great, very well made, water proof, inexpensive, portable and hold 50 rds each. I have 5 and want another 5!

  • AR7 new and old

    Posted by Ed P. on Dec 19th 2012

    The first time I purchased one of these little guns was in 1984 up in Alaska, it was a fun little plinking rifle that could be carried anywhere. I sold it when I moved to the lower 48 and regretted that decision for years.
    I've been able to get my hands on another one that was of a more recent manufacture and am happy to say it's still a fun gun to shoot. Very accurate and easy to clean.

  • Highly recommend

    Posted by M on Oct 26th 2012

    Just got back from the range after my first Henry AR7 experience. It was a gift from my brother who also bought one for himself. We read up on reviews of ammo to use and came down on CCI mini mag 22 lr 40 grain 1235 fps, high velocity. Went through almost 500 rounds and NO JAMS. Not a single problem. Both of us had no issues at all. The accuracy was pretty damn good too. Tight groups at all different distances available at the range.

    Great buy!

    CCI mini mag 22 lr 40 grain 1235 fps high velocity work flawless.

  • Love the rifle, but would redesign one thing....

    Posted by Shawn on Sep 14th 2012

    Love the rifle. Bought 5 extra magazines and have not had problems with any of them.

    The only "complaint" if you can call it that, is on the pull out handle to cock the rifle, I would put a compression spring on it, so it would stay in our out. Mine slides WAY to easily.

  • can not miss

    Posted by Bicdawg52 on Sep 1st 2012

    I put a scope and red dot laser on mine and you just can not miss day or night.

  • Henry Survival Rifle

    Posted by Charlie on Aug 4th 2012

    I like the Henry Survival Rifle but have two complaints. First, though the front sight is certainly easy to see, it is way too loose. My sight actually moves left to right in the dovetail with little pressure and moves while shooting the rifle. I ordered a replacement front sight from Numrich Gun Parts and pray it will fit the front dovetail tighter. Second, with the rifle disassembled and the parts stored in the butt-stock, don't..don't..don't carry it butt down. I did, and all the parts came pouring out onto my living room floor to my wife's amusement. The butt-stock cap won't hold the weight of the receiver and barrel if the stock is carried butt down.Try it with a little arm swing and wait for the clatter of metal parts hitting the ground.

  • Great rifle!

    Posted by Jim G. on Aug 1st 2012

    The henry US Survival rifle performed flawlessly straight out of the box. Shot a three inch group from 30 yards with the first three shots. Somethings I would like to see Henry do is improve the front sight. I like the bright orange sight but I think the plastic might be a little too easy to break off. Also I would like to see a compartment in the butt to store at least a small 50 round box of ammo. If you are in the wilderness 24 rounds will go quickly. It would not take up much space or increase the weight by much. These are just minor issues. I really love the rifle.

  • Great durable gun

    Posted by New shooter on Jul 12th 2012

    I love this gun?

  • Love this rifle!

    Posted by az catfisher on Apr 30th 2012

    I bought the AR 7 because I wanted a portable 22 rifle to plink with. I was pleasantly suprised by how comfortable it is to shoot and how accurate it is. Easily more accurate than my buddy's 10/22. I fired 300 rounds of all types of ammo with no malfunctions! AMAZING GUN!

  • Excellent Rifle!

    Posted by Gunn Smithy on Mar 31st 2012

    Henry did a great job on this rifle where Charter left off. Now three mags fit in the stock (they could have tossed the third one in there though). Assembles easy and holds its zero. It's extremely easy to work on since one screw removes the receiver side plate and things are very straight forward. I plan on getting my kids a 4 pistol hard gun case and putting in a Henry Survival rifle and maybe a Ruger SR22, that would be a perfect package.

  • Great rifle so far

    Posted by nguyen925 on Feb 5th 2012

    Just recently purchased this rifle and I've got to say the only drawback from purchasing this rifle is the availability of parts is difficult to find. Can't seem to find another 8 round magazine to put inside the stock. Other than that it's fired flawlessly and no jams so far.


    Posted by BIGDAVE54 on Dec 29th 2011

    I held off to a 4 because the other writer is right about the front sight post.It would not cost $5 to fix a better sight on it. I don't mind the easy route taken on the rear sight because it works. I carry a bottle of super glue in case the front gets a little too wobbly.
    The folks at Henry have made this a better rifle. About 25 yrs. ago I started to buy a Charter Arms model that was used. The clerk at the store told me the trigger pull was a tad heavy. I pulled on the trigger with both hands before it would fire.Yep 25-35 lbs. is a tad heavy. I think they tried to work on it and messed it up. I was patient and another company took them over.They did good by milling a pcatinny type rail on the top of the reciever. I bought some 72 in. leather boot laces today to make a sling for it.Now if Henry would fix the seal on the end cap on the back of the stock...we would all be in good shape. The end cap started falling off the first day I bought it. I now have black velcro on it. The rifle shoots beat with High Velocity CCI rounds(STINGERS and VELOCITORS) I have put 200 rds. through it with out a hic cup..,GOOD WORK SO FAR HENRY!!!

  • Good for what it is.

    Posted by Jake on Dec 12th 2010

    The Henry AR-7 is a fun little rifle. I like to carry it on the ATV because I dont have to worry about it getting wet or muddy.

    Accuracy is up there, probably about the same as any other normal auto-loading 22LR.

    Mine is a bit picky about ammo. It would fire the bulk stuff and do it accurately but it didnt seem to have enough oomph to cycle the action. I stick to my old standby rounds, CCI Mini-mags.

    The build of the rifle is probably ok for what it is. Seems like it is built to be a emergency use rifle. What I am trying to say is that I do not figure that it would hold up well to hundreds of thousands of plinking. If you want a plinker buy a 10/22 or a Marlin 60. If you want a good accurate rifle that is used only occasionally and that comes broke down in a waterproof floating stock, get the AR7.

    In conclusion, this rifle is great for what it is. Reliable, accurate and fun.
