    I dunno, it looks like a Kel-Tec to me.

    I have one of their other models in the closet, waiting to be traded in on a well-made gun.

    Kel-Tec has some really innovative designs, but in my experience their manufacturing is garbage. Their warranty looks good on paper, but the logistics and caveats of taking them up on it makes it all but irrelevant.

    My experience was so bad that I will never buy another Kel-Tec.

    They have some neat concepts and cool guns but none of them would trust my life to in a survival situation. Most of them are very reliable

    If you have a fold down rifle in 9mm I will buy it off you.

    My PF9 is the sidearm of choice.

    Yes, it has been fluffed and buffed.

    Survival rifle? Or do you mean a folding rifle? To me there is a great difference. My definition of a survival rifle is a Ruger Scout. And by golly Jeff C. would agree.

    About 25 years ago I had a well known gunsmith modernize my Remington Model 600 with a 700 BDL bolt, Brown Precision composite stock and a few other goodies. With a Bushnell compact 2-8x scope and a full magazine with one chambered, the rifle weighs just under seven pounds. Having a barrel length of just 18.5 inches helps as well.

    Again it is all about the details. What are you surviving? You have impeccable taste in firearms. For my type of survival needs it is tough to beat an over/under .22 mag 20 gauge with adjustable sights up top.

    I love the old Savage model 24. The newer Bakial combos look pretty good on screen, but I have never seen one in person.

    Chiappa Double Badger is interesting too. Price is reasonable. Anyone have one or have any experience with them? Quality?

    Review with some nice high quality pictures. http://rockymountainbushcraft.blogsp...olding-22.html
