Survival Rifle Basics
The term survival rifle dates to World War II. Military planes were fitted with small-bore, lightweight rifles to help airman whose planes went down in unfamiliar territory. Survival rifles are meant to be compact and easily transported. The U.S. Air Force, for example, from the late 1950s until the 1970s outfitted its planes with Springfield Armory M6 Scout rifles. Today, Small plane operators often still carry survival rifles, as do outdoorsmen, kayakers, rafters and canoers in case their craft is damaged beyond repair far from safe harbor.
Survival rifles are generally low-power, using cartridges such as .22 LR in order to hunt small prey. Smaller ammo also means it will take up less space in your kit.
Your survival rifle should also be on the smaller side, with a barrel length of 21 inches or so, so that it will pack easily and efficiently. Some rifles are designed specifically for use as survival rifles and have the added benefits of dissembling for easier storage, being extremely lightweight (under five pounds) and short-barreled. Some even float and include waterproof and/or rust-resistant materials in their design.
