Hide An Entire Rifle Inside Its Waterproof Stock

The first line of defence for keeping a rifle in good working order is to protect it from the elements. And that's made extra easy with this collapsible version of the AR-7 rifle.

It's actually been in production since 1959, but Henry Repeating Arms has given the classic shooter improved portability with a collapsing design that stores all of the disassembled components inside its waterproof plastic stock. Available in black or camo finishes for $US275, the AR-7 also uses an eight-round .22 LR calibre magazine so you can carry a large amount of ammo without adding a lot of weight to your kit. And, most importantly, it can be easily assembled on the spot without any additional tools. Perfect for those times when a deadly rabbit is unexpectedly bearing down on you.

    didnt bond have this in with russia from love?

      Yea an older model but definitely the same gun design, watched that movie just yesterday :D

    For anyone considering this it's a category D weapon. Unless you cull kangaroos or are employed by the government in certain jobs you cannot own this. Fines and/or gaol terms are substantial

    Category D: Semi-automatic centrefire rifles, pump-action or semi-automatic shotguns holding more than 5 rounds. Functional Category D firearms are restricted to government agencies and a few occupational shooters. Collectors may own deactivated Category D firearms.

    .22s are C, if I am not mistaken.
    I mean, you've even mentioned it yourself that D is "centrefire rifles" (.22s are rim fire rounds).

      Although they are only a .22 caliber they are semi automatic which in any caliber is a D class

    Almost all semi-automatics rifles fall under Category D.

      Cat C is rimfire semi-automatic rifles with less than 10 rounds
      Cat D is centrefire semi-automatic rifles or rimfires with more than 10 rounds

    Or I can just order one from Buds gun shop online, free shipping and have it for $302 after my transfer fee. You can't do that?
    Looks cool, but not a great gun.

    I am 99% certain the AR-7 has been able to break down and store in the butt for decades. I wanted one like hell when I was a teenager but couldn't afford it (and I haven't been a teenager for nearly 35 years) and it all folded up into the butt back then. It was sold as a survival rifle..

    That's exactly right ... it has collapsed into the stock since it was first designed. Nothing has really changed to the basic design ... just small materials changes. I actually had one as a kid before the gun control frenzy here. They were not very accurate and a bit of a gimmick really. They floated too.

    It's cat c. "a) a semiautomatic rim-fire rifle with a magazine capacity no greater than 10 rounds; "
