Hi all.

Thinking about a rifle for camping/backpacking and the like.

Any accurate .308 rifles that break down to a smaller size for camping/hiking?


Thanks

Here are a couple options, but there is always the accuracy/price trade off...

Kind of accurate.....NEF Survivor (http://www.hr1871.com/firearms/index.php?cat=6&subcat=5) The barrel and forearm come off with a simple screwdriver I believe.

Super accurate....HS Precision (http://www.hsprecision.com/new_ttd.htm) This thing rocks!!

Soooo, if you get the HS.....can I shoot it????? :D

the nef survivor comes apart without tools, and costs less than 300 dollars.

another vote for NEF, but not the survivor.;)
stock has a different feel, and no recoil pad. used to shoot one a buddy owned. you should hold one before ordering.

suggest a Handi rifle, about $200

or the pretty Ultra Hunter, under $300

So we've got $200 and the $2000-$4000 range covered.

Why not split the difference and end up somewhere in the middle?

Some years ago, Winchester made a takedown Model 70 in various calibers. I don't know if it's still in production - anyone know? I'm sure you could find one on the used gun market if you shop around.

Thompson Encore.

It's not fast to disassemble/reassemble, but with a carbine length barrel and perhaps a lightened stock, it should make a fairly small package.

I think you're talking about some custom work though.

Sauer 202 comes apart (barrel is clamped and buttstock comes off receiver) - more than the NEF, but far less than the HS. More than a Sauer but still less than the HS is the Blaser 93. Another option would be the Browning BLR (lever gun); remove the buttstock and you have a substantially shorter package to carry.

Don't shoot me for this... but the M1A/M14 comes apart quick and easy and, broken down, is fairly compact.
