TNW Firearms Multi-Caliber Survival Rifle Takes Glock Mags – NRA 2017

The Aero Survival Rifle from TNW Firearms.

When I think of the ideal Survival Rifle, I think of versatility, portability and, of course, affordability.

Versatility: Does it cover all the bases from hunting to plinking to home defense?  Portability: Is it easy to carry in a bag or backpack?  Affordability: Can I buy it without having to give up and arm and a leg.

The Aero Survival Rifle from TNW Firearms checks those boxes.  It features a removable barrel that requires no tools.  This makes it also easy for caliber changes. And it takes Glock magazines!

    It a great little rifle and pistol. I have a 45acp rifle and pistol, & last week I won the 9mm on a local gun ticket. The trigger is clean and crisp with short reset. If you learn to manipulate it is almost as fast as full auto. I have not changed any cal. yet but it look very easy. I plan on buying more. They are not that expensive, a good shooter, & great quality. It is worth checking out.
    Thanks TNW for a great weapon @ an good price. Can’t wait to get the 22 to try!!!

    This is an advertisement not an article. C’mon tell us something about this thing. Did you even try it out?

    In my opinion a survival weapon must also shoot shot shells along with rifle rounds. How about a 410ga rifle barrel lower that accepts 45LC, 45APC, and 454. A top that a 22LR all in a compac foldable package. Now you have my undivided attention.

      It comes in different calibers if you want. It shoots very well but it doesn’t like 115 grain, anythings from 124-147 grain and +P is fine in 9 mm. I didn’t get there backpack, I got the Copper Basin backpack made for the Ruger 10/22 instead. It’s appearance is more like a regular backpack and its available from Amazon for $85.00 presently. Felt recoil is negligible. I hope this helps.

      I concur. I also like the versatility of multiple calibers like .410 Gauge shot shells and .45 Long Colt bullets. Adding .454 Casull expands the capability, adding knock down power for large game. The Springfield M6 Scout used by US Air Force pilots was rated for .410 GA, but not .45 LC.

    This is Stupid – I will stick to my Ruger 10/22

    Is this CENSORSHIP?

    ? What happened to my comment?

  • David Bennett May 8, 2017, 5:20 am

    Very cool. Too bad here in New York state it is illegal to have a rifle with a pistol grip because the governor thinks a pistol grip akes a rifle more lethal. Hopefully the legislature will wake up and repeal the “SAFE Act.” If New York City wants to keep that attempt by Cuomo to disarm the citizenry that’s fine since they already had the Sullivan Act but up here in the wilds of the Catskills and Adirondacks my SKS functions as my deer rifle and home defense.
