AR-7 rifle was developed by an American company Armalite (in that period, a division of Fairchild Aircraft) in the late 1950s as survival weapon in the wild. The main objective of this rifle was to hunt small game for food, while, since it was supposed to supply such rifles to military pilots, the size and weight of the weapon should have been minimal. It should be noted that the AR-7 rifle did not enter service, but it turned out to be quite popular in the civilian market. In the seventies of the 20th century, production rights AR-7 were purchased by the American company CharterArms Co, and now this rifle is produced by another American company Henry Repeating Arms Co.
