    Charter Arms AR-7

    Found me a $100 deal and picking it up tonight. I know, I know...they're completely unreliable, according to any accounts. But, for $100 I had to take a chance and intend on making it my kitchen table project to make it a "sure fire" deal!

    I've wondered about picking one of these up, too. It's a machine, right? So it must be capable of tuning to make it a reliable, repeatable process...I think...

    I hope, but for $100, it would be a reasonable single shot rifle. We shall see...lol I've already got a Savage Model 30, so I'm covered for a light, dependable "meater". But, the AR-7 looks way cooler! HAHA

    I agree for $100 it's worth the risk.

    I have had 2 A-R 7's and both were very reliable semi auto's. I wish they were still in my safe but the 1st wife took care of that for me. And the M-1, the M-14 and a couple of 1911's but I digress.

    Seen good ones and bad ones. A co-worker found one in her dad's house after he passed and asked me to look at it. After I funcion tested it and it failed to load/ eject a few times I took it apart and cleaned it and it shot well. Keep them clean. At 3.5 pounds and floating could be a good forage/ BOB gun, but I prefer my Nylon 66.

    After you clean it COMPLETELY and you know your mags work, just figure out what ammo it likes.

    Got it, love it! Was really, really dirty and probably didn't function well due to that. Hence, the $100 price tag. Cleaned up great, can't wait to shoot it. Once it's proven, I'll tuck it away in the BOB. Well worth the 3 hour round trip!

    definitely worth the $100 investment. Is it reliable or not, it can be with a little elbow grease. Nice buy!
