The Pak-Rifle: A 16-oz .22LR Utility / Small Game Rifle

The Pak-Rifle weighs 16 oz and shoots 0.22LR shells, which weigh less than 0.11 oz apiece. If one is trekking through areas where upland bird and small game abounds, then adding 20 oz of rifle and shells can allow you to spend many more days in the backcountry than what might be possible simply by carrying all of your own food. A similar argument can be made for an ultralight fishing kit. Consequently, equipment that can be used for foraging and hunting deserves some consideration for trekkers undergoing longer journeys in remote locations where food weight might become prohibitive, and resupply logistics are challenging.

  • My COBRAY .410 derringer shotgun has a 18" inch barrel. Gun only weighs 1.5 pounds and can fire .22LR ammo and .45 LC ammo also. Price only $250 dollars !

  • I come from a mountaineering background where the weight of your gear, and hence your speed of travel, can be a safety issue. So my 1st point is that as a peice of kit that is as light as it can be it is easily worth the money. I purchased one these for long trips travelling in the wilderness here in NZ (wilderness here often means mountainous terrain) I often need to carry Ice axe and crampons and or packrafting kit, this means heavy pack weights. I carry this packrifle to procure food from the many mammal pests that live in NZ wilderness. At the weight of 2 freezedri meals, this rifle can and has earned its weight in food many times over, something that cannot be acheived using the many cheaper options mentioned in earlier comments. I have carried this strapped to the side of my pack (neatly because of its packed size, important for pushing through scrub and thick bush) and have fallen on that side, the rifle taking the pack weight impact, there was a hole made by a stone in the carry case but two nights later I used it to shoot a hare for food. I have also used this on mountainbiking trips where weight and size is always an issue.
    Most of the negative comments about this firearm are from shooters who I doubt have experience travelling long distances in wilderness terrain.
    To summarize… This is an amazingly capable and practical tool for the purpose it was intended.

  • This rifle serves a very specific purpose; to be as small, lightweight & durable as possible without sacrificing quality by using cheap, lightweight parts such as polymer everywhere. These are made with aluminum, chromoly, carbon fiber & uses stainless steel moving parts. This thing is QUALITY.

    The price is absolutely worth it if this is the type of gun you’re looking for. Value is subjective of course. People are comparing this “orange” to “apples.”

  • the price is a bit… but everything else looks good.

    Wherever local laws apply, I hike with a Ruger 10/22 TD in a Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock. Single piece when the guns disassembled (barrel snaps to the stock), the buttstock holds 1 extra 10rd mag, with some modification the buttstock compartment holds 1 hex key, 1 set of foam ear plugs, and two 40 round boxes. Together the assembly carries two mags and up to 100 rds of ammo. Oh, grip compartment holds a .22 boresnake very well. Excluding ammo and the boresnake my setups actually less than $425.

  • The short answer to anyone who says they would rather have a M6 or a pistol or a Ruger take-down rifle is: you are not the customer this is built for. The only possible justification for a single-shot .22 that costs over four hundred bucks is that it fills a need that nothing else does. This is a rifle designed for hikers who will agonize over whether they should bring ten rounds of .22 LR… or twelve. If you you aren't measuring weight in grams or quarter-ounces, you'd have to be nuts to buy this. But…. if that you, what's the alternative? An NAA .22 mini-revolver, which is a lot less accurate, and a good deal less powerful.

  • for around $50 more you could get an m6 scout which is significantly more versatile seeing as it is a 22over a 410bore shotgun with space for ammo in the stock. not as light but a super handy survival gun.

  • This weighs less than 1 lb, can turn into a fishing pole, and packs into a very small pack. Ultralight packers who also hunt and fish can appreciate this rifle and that's who the product is designed for. If you have to ask why it costs $400, then it's obviously not for you.

  • I'm better off with a savage or Marlin, either semi or bolt but I'd take bolt any day for survival cause it's more reliable and accurate to begin with. also lass than half the cost.

  • Nice concept for a gun. I am just wondering if you couldn't make something slightly bigger than this in .22 and .410. You could replace the semi-auto style bolt with a hammer  like the Savage 24 and still keep the side rotating action but hang a .410 barrel underneath. Just make the action a little different and make it load completely vertical. There is just something about being able to shoot .410 slugs that would make it more attractive.
