Marlin Papoose: Best Bugout Rifle in the World?
nutnfancy – Perhaps the greatest the survival and bugout rifle every made, it is time to revisit the Marlin Papoose Model 70PSS. In stainless steel and synthetic we have about 20 years of using this gun in our family. There are good reasons for that. The Papoose is one of the lightest .22 rifles made, it is very reliable, packs compactly, comes in a floating case, takes a scope readily, has good iron sights, has last shot hold open, a decent trigger, is exceptionally accurate, and represents great value. Building upon the foundation of what makes a realistic survival or bugout rifle, I cover all the aspects to this great .22. Even for just plain plinking and shooting fun, it is a great choice. The heavier Ruger 10/22 Takedown and the clunky Henry Arms AR-7 are compared. With the addition of the excellent ProMag 25 rd Marlin .22 magazines, the Papoose could be considered the best, packable survival rifle in the world.
