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.
