"Isn't that Plastic?"

Why, yes it is. Ever see what a youngster can do to wood?



Another vote for the Ruger American. Fiber optic sights; Standard 3/8" dovetail, if one chooses that mounting system; D/T'd for #12 bases if one wants a better scope mounting system; Adjustable trigger; Standard ol' Ruger 10/22 ten shot rotary magazine; Sling swivel studs; And what was mentioned about a choice of two LOPs with the compact model.

Mine is the "standard" model. Also includes choice of two different stock comb heights. All for less than $300 most places. It's a keeper and I was never much for synthetic stocks.

I bought my kid one when he was 6.I hated it.It was a pain to load and really not much good for anything else.For a real small kid,Marlin makes a nice youth .22 that's light.I had both of them and then upgraded him to a Ruger American.It's not a real light gun but accurate and it functions flawlessly.

Re: Nice starter 22 rifle

For the same money you can buy a bolt action Marlin with a clip and much,much better trigger and much better accuracy.I hated the chipmunk and only kept it for about 3 months.

Re: Nice starter 22 rifle

My kids grew up on a Crickett. My only complaint was that the chamber was tight and it required a little effort to chamber a round. I'm sure this would break in with time. But it's not a rifle you shoot hundreds of rounds with. It was a single shot bolt action that you also had to cock. I liked that extra level of safety. It was actually pretty accurate.

I don't know why I keep saying "was" as I still have it. But I'm think about giving it to a friend with young kids. My kids are too big for it now.
