Weatherby Vanguard Youth 7mm-08 vs Howa 2n1
I am researching youth rifles for my 11 yo son, who will be 12 in July and have come to these two at this point.
The Weatherby Youth supposedly comes with a "removable elongated spacer system that allows you "fit the rifle to a growing shooter." I guess you take the spacer out while younger and put back in when they grow into it.
The Howa 2n1 comes with both a youth stock and an adult stock.
I am familiar with the Weatherby name, not so much with Howa but what I'm reading on line sounds like they do some manufacturing for Weatherby.
Prices seem to be right around the same, with the Weatherby Vanguard coming in 20 to 50 lower.
So my question is does anyone on here have any experience with these two rifles and have any input that they can supply?
As I said I have done alot of internet research and I like the fact that these two will be good for all his life.
We havent held either in our hands yet so that will of course be another deciding factor.
