Survival rifles

I know this question has most likely been asked over and over but i'm looking to pick up a survival rifle in 22 caliber,would prefer something in single shot and not semi.Could anyone recommend a decent one?

Re: Survival rifles

A nice little single shot shotgun might be handy, they break down easy and you can shoot a number of different shells and slugs.

Re: Survival rifles

I always liked the Savage Mark II FV-SR, suppressor ready would come in handy.

Re: Survival rifles

Ol'Crow Good idea but was really looking for something that would break down and fit right into the existing stock of the gun and pack easily into a pack.

Re: Survival rifles

Not a single shot but the Marlin Papoose would fit the bill.

This would be my suggestion as well. Reasonably priced, reliable weapon.

Re: Survival rifles

I've had an M6 22/410 in my trunk for around 20 years I guess. I worked in Binghamton NY for 30 yrs and of course couldn't cross the border with a handgun. Wanted something legal I could keep in the trunk in a case and just "set it and forget it", no worries about rust. So it just permanently stays in the trunk.



I removed the trigger guard so it would fold tighter on itself.


You can also just push out the detent pin and separate the halves but I didn't want to do that in case I lose the pin over the years.


Ammo is carried in the stock.

Re: Survival rifles

That's the gun I was thinking of.

If I had to rely on only one gun I would pick a shotgun without question. IMO a survival gun is not a hunting gun.

There are a bunch of different 22's that I really like. Most are either hunting or plinking guns. Something that braks down and fits in a pack would be the best bet. I surely wouldn't want to carry my Marlin around all the time.

If not breaking state lines I would carry a handgun personally. I use a Heritage Rough Rider 22 with a 6.5 inch barrel. If I feel I need more power I toss in the mag cylinder. I carry this gun while fishing, scouting or just going for walks in the woods. I would like a bit shorter barrel, but it works. That gun has an alloy frame and doesn't weigh very much anyway.

Re: Survival rifles

I have a Savage .22/.410 over under. I think it would make a nice survival gun.
