Takedown rifles by themselves are cool. But what if we took a takedown rifle and combined it with a fishing rod? Finally, someone has combined two of my favorite things.

“Your chocolate is in my peanut butter. Your peanut butter is in my chocolate.”

Developed and manufactured by Utah-based Mountain View Machine & Welding, Inc., the Pack-rifle ($425) represents the best of both worlds in a light-weight and packable solution.

Specifications of the Pack-Rifle:

  • Single shot .22 Caliber bolt-action
  • Weight of 15.5ox
  • Over all length of 33″
  • Take-down length of 17″

From Pack-Rifle:

The receiver, and most other parts, of the Pack-Rifle are machined from high strength aluminum, while most wear parts and fasteners are constructed of stainless steel. The barrel is a precision button rifled, Cro-Moly liner with a carbon fiber composite outer. Carbon fiber is also used for the butt stock tube of the rifle. This construction makes the Pack-Rifle not only the lightest rifle out there, but very weather resistant also. In addition to being light, the Pack-Rifle also takes down to a very small size. The same mechanism that allows the loading and extraction of spent shells also enables the rifle to take down into two pieces, in less that 2 seconds and without tools. It reassembles just as fast.
