The Feather Industries AT is an American takedown rifle.

HistoryEdit

The AT was developed by Feather Industries as a takedown rifle that would be more compact, cheaper and more useful than the storied Armalite AR-7.

Design DetailsEdit

The rifle was blowback-operated. There are various accounts of the build quality and reliability of the weapon; some say that the weapon was of good quality, while other say that the weapon's build quality was on par with that of a Saturday night special. The weld connecting the breech to the barrel is said to be of poor quality, in that it is inconsistent and lumpy, and that that "attention to detail" is transferred to the rest of the weapon, making it apparently feel cheap by some accounts. The weapon also has an interchangeable barrel, which is poorly executed. The weapon has a wireframe stock that slots into holes at the rear of the receiver; the weapon has a plastic grip at the front, with newer versions having a vertical foregrip. The weapon's fire controls are ambidextrous but are placed in a rather odd spot on the weapon, ahead of the trigger; the magazine release is placed in front of the magazine well.

VariantsEdit
