    There are/have been 3 major manufacturers of the AR7: Armalite, Charter Arms, and Henry. Some of the differences are: the Henry is heavier and does not float, the earlier versions made by Armalite and Charter Arms do. The Armalite and Charter Arms used high velocity 40 gr ammo to function reliably. The Henry appears to function reliably with any .22lr.

    The link below is to an informative report on the AR7s, published by the American Rifleman:

    Was having a problem editing to a better picture but got it. Better photo above.
    Armalite made the AR7 as survival rifle for the Air Force, Henry copied it.
    Check yours and see if it's Armalite or Henry.

    Here's a good article on the Henry AR7.

    Gonna say the early models were not too accurate.
    What's the story on a free one ?

    or something like that. It doesn't spend much time outside my yard because it's trying to survive. :ROLF:

    Another thought on why it was given for free -

    About 4 years ago, one of the Briklee imported Israeli AR7 pilot survival rifles the was brought into the USA suffered a catastrophic failure when a round exploded in the chamber and damaged the receiver. Yours could be that one ? :confused;
