I am really interested in these little carbines, especially since I see they have 15rd mags. I have found limited info on them suprisingly. Can anyone tell me about them? The Henry ones seem to get good marks.
Your experience is the norm. I had one and dumped it fast. Perhaps the worst firearms purchase I ever made, ever and that includes a Jennings .22 pistol that was far more reliable and accurate than the AR7 with any ammo at any distance.Slinger646 said:I have one, it may be a lemon, but it FTEs all the time and the rear sight is Kentucky windage at its finest.
BTW, Its a Charter Arms AR-7 Explorer.
Damnit, now that im talking about it, Im going to go find it and play with it. I havent used it since I was 15. :lol: :twisted:
I believe it was "From Russia With Love". I've wanted an AR 7 ever since I saw the movie as a kid.DragoonIX said:I have tried to like them. I have had several, and they are pretty bad. I like the idea of the AR7. It is one of those guns people love or hate. I just figured a 10/22 was more realiable, easier to shoot, get parts for etc.. The mags are the weakest link in the AR7, and cause 95% of the problems. The 15rd Mags are the worst. To top it of most mags will not interchange. Also the Henry Models are the crudest, and the parts do not interchange from the other brands. Find a Charter Arms, or AR7 Industries at a gun show for 100$, and try it out. The Armalite's are cool because it was a "Bond" gun ( on Thunderball I think, and Q said it was a .25). Oh well hope this helps Cheers.
