Lately, we've been talking about high-end flashlights using 18650 batteries. And over the last year,…
Survival Rifle and More
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.”

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.
