I am told (250) ArmaLite AR-7 Explorer marked survival rifles were brought in by CDNN in 1994. Many of us are familiar with the standard AR-7 where the entire rifle broke-down and stored in the stock. This rifle has a collapsible stock and a Mauser (?) type suppressor. Rifle is .22 Cal. While anything is possible, I do not believe this is an AR-7 an individual has modified. From what I could see, looks more like a factory mod. I've only seen one poor picture and now that picture is gone. Anyone have information ? Thanks !!

Sorry about the bad pics.I used the net cam.Ill get better tonight.You can not tell but in the second pic the Armalite logo has been ground off.The barrel has Armalite on it with the Costa Mesa adress below is a importers mark that says B.T.C. S.E.M CA. its in the same color as the Armalite and adress so I believe it was remarked.

ArmaLite Fan, your "bad" pictures are much better than the one I saw. Thanks very much as this is the rifle I just bought. Do you have any info on this rifle ? Was it made for the Israeli's ? How many made/imported? (anotherArmaLitefan)

Hey guys, I had two ar-7's about 20 years ago, but dont think armalite was the maker, was their someone else? another name?

"Surfer," First manufacturer was ArmaLite - then Charter Arms - then Survival Arms-now Henry & AR-7 Industries. AR-7 is reported to be another of Eugene Stoner's creations. Twenty years back your AR-7 was probably a Charter Arms as Charter manufactured this rifle from 1974-1990. Hope this helps.
