The Ralston Arms Scavenger 6 Survival Rifle – ’23 Calibers From 1 Rifle’ – Too Good To Be True?
The survival crowd loves multi-use items, especially items that are compact and can fill a variety of needs. The The Ralston Arms Scavenger 6 Survival Rifle aims to do just that, as it is purported to fire 23 calibers. That is right, 23 calibers from one rifle!
It’s a rifle that can fire 21 different calibers and swap between them in seconds . . .
The cylinder of this revolver is also a 7″ barrel — a cylinder-barrel or what Ralston Armory is calling a “CB.” Six-shot cylinders are available in 21 calibers. Actually, 23 if you count .45 Colt / .410 gauge and .38 Special / .357 Magnum as two each. 24 calibers if the .44 Magnum cylinder accepts .44 Special, which I assume it would.
In addition to that, there are three, multi-caliber CBs that each shoot six or more different calibers. For instance, the “Survival CB” fires .22, .38/.357, .45 Colt/.410, .223/5.56, 9mm, and .45 ACP. In this case, it’s one shot for each caliber. It would definitely be an interesting experience to load it up with one of each, though, and fire through all six rounds!
