Anyone have a source for dates of manufacture by serial number for the Armalite AR-7 Survival rifle?
Do you have a Costa Mesa ArmaLite ?
What color is the stock brown, green, marbled or black?
Is yours a ArmaLite, a Charter arms, a AR7 industries or a Henry?
Old ones have no scope mount provisions. newer ones have 3/8 dovetail on top.
1973-1990: Charter Arms
1990-1997: Survival Arms - Cocoa, Florida
1998-2004: AR-7 Industries - LLC, Meriden, Connecticut (bought by ArmaLite in 2004)
1997–2007: Henry Repeating Arms Co. - Brooklyn, New York
2007–present: Henry Repeating Arms Co. - Bayonne, New Jersey
I have an old Charter Arms AR-7 in EC with the box and paperwork.
It is an Armalite, Costa Mesa and it has a camouflage stock. No scope mount. Serial number 664**. This is a photo with a 15 round magazine (not the original). The original magazine was in the butt stock when this was taken. The barrel on this rifle was sanded leaving part of the original finish. I plan to refinish the barrel with some DuraCoat later on.
how well does the 15 round mag work? what brand?
I haven't actually tested the 15 rounder since I got it. There is a problem with it though. Even though it is locked in it moves up ad down
in the magazine well and inch and a half or so. It doesn't come out but you can grab it and move it up and down. Obviously that's not
going to work very well unless I push up on it from the bottom to hold it in place so that the rounds will feed. Not sure what brand the mag is. It could be a Triple K. I'll have to re-check that to be sure. I still have the original magazine though.
Nope, no name or markings anywhere on the magazine.
I think I will just stay with the standard mags for the AR-7. If I need more, I have 25 rnd mags for my 10/22
