The U.S. Air Force has offered the first good look at how its new-ish GAU-5/A carbines squeeze in with other items inside a survival kit that the service’s pilots are now flying with under their ejection seats. The guns are converted standard M4 carbines with various new features, most notably a special locking system that allows users to break it down into two halves in 30 seconds or less and reassemble when necessary just as fast.

I have featured this rifle before, but this is the first time it has been shown stored in its compartment underneath the pilot’s seat. I think it would be awesome to get a civilian version out for SHTF purposes. An AR-15 easy to stow in a vehicle or back pack would meet a lot of needs for emergency situations.
