My nephews birthday is coming up and I am thinking about buying a Davey Cricket 22 for him. He'll be 5 or 6 this year. He is kind of small. I have a youth model Marlin 15 but it is to big for him. My cousin had a Davey Cricket and I recall it being considerably smaller than my Marlin. My cousin sold his years ago. I don't recall hearing any complaints about it. He just didn't need it anymore. What's your experience with these rifles?
