.22 for a youngster

Once again I'm asking the experts for their advice. Christmas is right around the corner & I'm looking for a .22 for my son. He already has a single shot Rossi. We're looking to upgrade and move up to a bolt action. What does everyone recommend?

Are you set on a bolt action? Henry makes very attractive looking levers!

I just got a Henry H001 Lever in .22 and they also make a youth model - LOVE IT!

Re: .22 for a youngster

I purchased a Savage MKII Youth model for my oldest son last year. It is one of the few bolt action youth models that has a clip and it a mighty fine shooter. It can be lengthened later with the purchase of an adult-sized drop-in stock.

Check out the CZ 452 Scout. Nice well built rifle for the bucks. I bought for two, one for each of my grandsons.

Re: .22 for a youngster

think ahead a little. Is he likely to use a bolt action or pump rifle in the future for big game ? I have a pump Rem and a semi 22 that I havent shot in years because I prefer to use the Bolt 22 or the single shot Contender.

Re: .22 for a youngster

Depends on his size, but the CZ 452 Scout is a great gun for the money. It's actually the best quality 22 bolt in my safe and it's my son's!

Edit: Oh, sorry WildBill, you beat me to it so just count this post as a second of his opinion!

Re: .22 for a youngster

I got a rossi .22/410 for my first gun and i liked it was only like a hundred bucks

Aim small to miss small and put a RAGE in the cage.

Re: .22 for a youngster

Marlin 22 Rimfire bolt actions have always been good guns...
they are groved for scopes and they make outstanding close quarters chuck and squirrel guns..
