    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 The barrel and forearm come off with a simple screwdriver I believe.

    Super accurate....HS Precision 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

    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.
