Quality, single shot, youth rifle?

Hear too many bad things about the Rossi's to make that jump. What are the alternatives out there for a single shot, interchangeable barrel (similar to the Rossi trifecta combo) rifle/shotgun/22 combo. that has an expandable stock that will grow with a youth?

Have a daughter who is 9 and a son who is 7 who at the beginning, will be sharing the rifle.

Thanks.

Contender carbine: youth stock/adult stock/ .22 long rifle 21 inch/ .223 21 inch/ 7 x 30 waters 21 inch. My son started with these and still uses them (he is now 30 years old) He says that's all he will ever need. Get a quality scope and rings that can be moved barrel to barrel.

Ya, I have a 14" .44 Contender that I've been thinking of building into a long gun for my daughter. .410, .223, and .30-30 cover a whole lotta ground.

Sub. That's a cool idea but with the 14 inch bbl that would need sbr permit from atf. If you put a stock on it. Would have to be 16 inch or longer to stay out of nfa firearms category of short barel rifle

Went with a savage axis Xp in 243 for the youngins. D-Icks sporting goods had it on sale and couldn't pass it up. 199 after 100 in rebates plus 10% off after getting a credit card and another ten bucks off coupon from a previous survey I took so, 159 plus tax out the door for the rifle combo with a scope.

Still might get a contender carbine after I see how this season goes.

Next time you go into a gun store like Gander or where ever.. Notice what guns are on the used rack.. Those cheap single shot rifles the NEF H & R and Rossi...Get the kid a AXIS bolt action in the 243...
