    That Henry looks kind of cool.

    Marlin model 60, then you don't have to mess with mags.

    I was looking at a Marlin, holds 12 rounds though. Kaliban law states 10 max.

    Edit: Maybe they are legal here, can't find anything to tell me either way though.

    The AR-7 is quite an interesting rifle. I think it definately qualifies as a "survival rifle", being incredibly lightweight, and it floats when you pack it together. That would get my vote.

    From what I have read so far it is pretty much luck of the draw if you get a good one or a lemon.

    if you wanted a taken down model, marlin makes one called the pappoose, but you can also probably find a marlin 60 locally at a pawnshop for like $60 or something if you want a cheap plinker.

    The older Charter Arms (I think) produced ones had some serious quality control issues. I think the Henrys are good.

    That is exactly what I want, a cheap plinker. Not many pawn shops around here though.

    Henry, merely based on looking cool.

    This thread inspired me to look at my dad's old guns in his closet, and I found a Revelation Model 120. Apparently its the same as the Marlin Model 60 but its a house brand. Maybe I won't have to buy a new gun after all. Lots of gouges in the wood and some rust though, it needs a good cleaning.

    Sounds like a fun restoration project. Some oil and some 0000 will take care of a lot of rust, some cold blue can touch it up if you like, you can steam dents out of the stock....

    I just finished getting most of the rust off with steel wool, and there are hunks missing out of the stock, not dents. Probably just sand em down a bit and smooth em out.

    Its Section 12020 of the CA Penal Code, specifically subsection 25:
    (25) As used in this section, "large-capacity magazine" means any
    ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10
    rounds, but shall not be construed to include any of the following:
    (A) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it
    cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
    (B) A .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device.
    (C) A tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action
    firearm.
