Savage Arms, long a leader in producing extremely accurate and dependable rifles at serious budget prices, has some terrific news for preppers, hikers, campers and home defenders in the form of their new Model 64 Takedown. This nimble little .22-caliber rifle combines the accuracy and dependability of the original Model 64 semi-automatic platform with an incredibly simple takedown design.

Just in case you were wondering whether the Model 64 Takedown was designed with survival in mind, it comes with its own Uncle Mike's Bug-Out Bag. Featuring a 16 1⁄2-inch matte black carbon steel barrel, drilled and tapped receiver for scope mounts and a 10-round detachable box magazine, this survival rifle is available in both right- and left-hand models. Both models have shipped and are available at dealers now at an MSRP of $249, so if you're on the lookout for a "backpack gun" or "truck gun" that won't let you or your budget down, click here to find a dealer.
