    I Need a Youth/Compact Rimfire...

    So my kid is turning 10 in a couple months, and I want to get him a plinker of his own. I need something in a youth/compact size. The Crickett is already on the edge of being too small, and I want to get him something he can grow into.

    What I'd like: Youth size, threaded barrel (he loves shooting suppressed), preferably a bolt action but I may entertain a semi.

    I have Ruger American Rimfire that he loves shooting, so I'm considering the youth model of that. Also considered a 10/22, but I haven't seen a youth model with threaded barrel. Just wanted to see if anyone had recommendations I may have not seen yet.

    Not really looking at "tactical" style stuff (ARs etc) because I want him to appreciate the fundamentals of shooting as opposed to just blasting through ammo.

    Thanks!

    Really though, that's a super slick setup. Definitely putting it on the list, thanks.

    Would be so perfect if it didn't weight 7lbs.

    Get some shooting sticks or a bipod. Nothing wrong with shooting from the prone. Shooting sticks don't teach them to rely on a stable platform either.

    Henry youth lever action is super fun to shoot. Or find a Remington Nylon 66, that was my first .22 and I still shoot it to this day.

    Next two should be accurate - but you'd have to thread them.
    1 - Keystone Sporting Arms makes some mid-sized stuff in the model 722 line. Same mfgr as Crickett.

    2 - I have a Biathlon Basic. It is a bit on the smaller side. I'd have to weight it.

    Problem is it is pushing $1000.00 on price and no irons.

    Air rifle - Daisy 853 Refurb from the CMP - $115 Shipped - incredible value

    I also have a Kimber 82G that would be great if it didn't weight so much. What makes it so good is I can shoot from position, bipod, scope or irons by quickly reconfiguring it. So my suggestion is get a rifle you can switch from irons/scope easily.
