  • MagPul Box Gun

    This is an interesting concept. Too bad they aren't manufacturing them...

    That is pretty darn slick. I've been thinking about getting a Henry Survival rifle to keep in my backpack just for the heck of it, but it sure doesn't get into action as fast as that MagPul gun...

        I could see the Air Force buying those for emergency bags. My Uncle was an Air Force Trainer during Vietnam, and he showed me the rifle that they would include in the drop pack for when a pilot went down. It was very similar to the Henry Survival rifle, but break action, and had two caliber barrels. One was a .22 the other was I thought a .45 Google said a .410 shotgun.

        Ah here it is... Or at least one very similar. (Thanks Google)

        A Springfield Armory / CZ purpose built survival rifle.

        The M6 survival rifle is no longer in production, but they do surface on the used market every now and then. Manufactured for Springfield by CZ in the Czech Republic, and Ithica at one time, the M6 is an over / under breakdown design featuring 22LR or Hornet and .410 shotgun barrels. The cheekpiece lifts to reveal storage for 12 .22 rounds and four .410 shells. The unconventional trigger is designed for ease of use with a gloved or possibly injured hand, however the civilian version trigger guard prevenst the rifle from folding fully. The M6 is easily taken down into 2 pieces for compact carry and storage. Air Force pilots generally just carry a side arm nowadays, with the advent of GPS and location devices such as EPIRBs, ELT's, and PLB's a survival rifle has become somewhat obsolete from a military perspective. That said, the M6 is still prized by those who own it, many of whom swear by it. The original $200 sticker price is likely not what you will pay if you find one, usually $300 is where they start.

        ~ Can be broken down easily.
        ~ Durable construction.
        ~ Ultra Light - 2.5 lbs.
        ~ integrated .410 ga. shotgun
        ~ On board shell carrying.
        ~ Good Accuracy.
        ~ Caliber: .22LR / .410
        ~ Operation: Single Shot break
        ~ Draken

          That fore grip is waay too small, the way he was holding it it looks like he'd blow his fingers off if he started firing...

          Cool concept though, I know from where I'm from you would probably get the cops called on you if you were carrying a firearm, even completely legally. People can be pretty paranoid...

          I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.

              I don't want a VFG on my rifle at all, thanks anyway...

                  That was so freaking badass. And 20 bucks says the military, CIA, NSA, etc. already has it.

                    but in a briefcase. A button or yank and the briefcase falls away leaving the gun popping out and open.

                          Say you're walking your dog, and things get nasty and you need immediate action... Make that damn dog work off some of the aplo, training lessons, and worming medication you've been feeding it!
