Weighing in at just under a pound, the .22 caliber single-shot bolt-action rifle is not only light and easy to carry, but the use of aluminum and carbon fiber make it weather resistant too. When you're hungry, or when the local wildlife decides that they are, you don't want a little rain to get in the way of putting this to good use.
The rifle breaks down into two main components in just a couple of seconds, making it easier to stash in a backpack. And with the addition of a reel screwed onto the pistol grip, and a rod that extends from the stock, you've got yourself another survival tool in the same $425 package. Let's see your corkscrew-packing Swiss Army knife do that. [Pack-Rifle via The Firearm Blog via UberReview]
But it might be a little light if your survival depended on killing a Grizzly Bear or catching a Great White Shark.
