The Henry AR-7 rifle is in a category all its own. While countless AR-15 companies are trying to think of new innovative ways to fold something here… collapse this piece… or tear down the whole apparatus more quickly… Henry has always had the true backpack-ready, compact rifle all along.
For some people, your predictable matte black finish just is not that eye-catching or invokes a ton of enthusiasm to open your wallet. To spice things up, Henry has a new color that not only has curb appeal in the appearance, but also the name. The newest offering of the US Survival AR-7 rifle comes in “Viper Western” camouflage.
I am not entirely sure where the origins of Viper Western come from?… Is it a region of the US?… Are snakes prevalent?… Should we bring along one of Henry’s .410 gauge lever-actions with some buckshot?… Regardless, it has a matte finish that would blend in well into a western landscape dotted with sagebrush, or a generally more arid environment.
A simple rundown of specs goes like this:
- Two 8-Round Magazines
- 16.125″ Barrel w/ 1:16″ Twist Rate
- Blade Front Sight w/ Peep Rear
- 35″ Overall Length w/ 14″ Length-of-Pull
- Removable, Rubber Buttplate (To access storage compartments)
- 3/8″ Grooved Receiver to Add Optics
- 3 1/2 Lbs Total Weight
This rifle comes in at an MSRP of $350 which is the same as their only other camo offering: True Timber-Kanati.
Side note: Whoever is coming up with the names of these camo schemes at Henry deserves a raise!
