    Wanting to get my daughter who will be turning 6 in a few months a good quality starter .22 for her Birthday. So far it seems that the Savage Rascal is probably the best thing on the market right now that fits with what I’m looking for. If there is something better or an alternative that you think could be ranked into the same category please do mention it. Absolutely won’t consider any models that are in ‘pink’ as I think it’s an abhorrent idea, so please don’t recommend getting her a ‘pink’ .22 Thanks.

      That a pretty good choice but single shots are kind of fustrating to use, but bolt action is the best. Maybe a savage mark II, since it is magazine fed.

        Sorry, forgot to put an "is" between "That" and "a".

          The Savage Cub from what I understand is just a scaled down version of the Mark II, but in a single shot platform. The biggest issue with this though is it has been discontinued, as the Rascal was its replacement. I think that even a youth Mark II would be too unwieldy for her.

          Thanks,

          B.S.

              Try a henry lever action .22 they can fire both longs and shorts, are easily to use safely, tough, and reliable. It was my first gun when I was turned 8. It still shoots as well as it did on day one and I still love to shoot it. I hope to have kids one day to pass it on to.

                You just can beat the Savage Rascal .22Lr or .22Shorts for Reduces Muzzle Blast for a Young Person.
                Good Luck.

                  TC also makes a youth model and in pink (not cheap)that is very good.Little girls love pink so sometimes you have to roll with it.

                    Can't go wrong with a single shot. Might even consider the Chipmunk if she's small framed. Single shot makes them think about each shot.

                        I'm glad you aren't going to buy her a pink gun. I think they are disgusting looking.

                          Thanks, I'll try to take a look at those mentioned.

                          @ Bubba, how hard is it to pull the cocking piece back on the chipmunk? Seems like it could wear out a little shooters fingers? I would be right there and could do it for her, but I would rather she went through the process in order to shoot. Just don't want to make it a painful experience.

                          That Marlin XT-22Y looks interesting. Although I would probably have to shorten the LOP for her as it looks a little long.

                          Thanks Again guys, great feedback!
