NRA Gun of the Week: TNW Firearms Aero Survival Rifle

posted on August 10, 2019
Engineered as a survival tool for pilots to deploy when disaster strikes, the Aero Survival Rifle (ASR) from TNW Firearms provides the outdoor enthusiast a pistol-caliber carbine with the capability of hosting a full suite of modern center-fire pistol chamberings, as well as .22-cal. rimfire. Comprised of two receivers—an upper and lower built around the separation principle utilized in the AR-15 design—the rifle adapts quickly and easily to accept the various chamberings. Additionally, this feature, along with tool-less barrel removal, allows for quick and compact stowage. To learn more about the TNW Firearms ASR, watch our NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Kelly Young.
