My daughter is going to be 4 and I want to get her a .22. Who makes good youth .22's?
Look at the Marlin Papoose and the Remingtons.
The Cricket and Chipmunk .22 rifles are great for young kids - but they will 'grown out of' them soon. They are really tiny!
Henry makes a nice little .22 single-shot youth rifle.
Marlin and Savage both make youth models too.
Hey chewy, henry makes a nice little youth .22 LR lever action. Just like big dog sais those crickets are tiny and your kid will outgrow them fast! The henry youth weighs only 4 1/2 lbs. and is 33 inches long. This way the gun is still small, but once they get older they wont comepletely outgrow it, here is a link to the henry.
Henry Lever Action Youth Rifle H001Y, 22 Long Rifle, 16 1/8", American Walnut Stock, Blue Finish
I like the Savage guns. Made in Canada eh! Seriously they are reasonably priced and very accurate. If you don't believe me I can show you targets. The trigger can be adjusted down to about 2 lbs as it comes, and to 1 lb or less with mods. The Accutrigger feature still keeps it safe from accidental discharge.
Savage Arms Mark II Rimfire Series Model Mark II GY Youth
Get her a pink cricket. She will love it.
Henry makes two nice rifles for youth. The minibolt and Lever action.
Henry Repeating Arms
I bought my daughter a Crickett and she loves it. I talked her into the one with the blue finish wood stock.
Word of advice. If you're going for optics, bypass a scope and get a cheap BSA red dot job. I put a Leapers scope on hers but she's still too short to get her eye close enough to the scope. We switched to a red dot for the extended eye relief. Maybe when she hits her next growth spurt, we can switch back to the scope.
