    I've seen one similar, more of a chassis style though. Think it was a Henry maybe. 
    Off to google

    This is what I was thinking off. Cricket as well. 
    Reasonably sure Henry has one too.

    Yes, it is. Cute as hell. I remember now , I saw a similar Henry (who makes the superior youth rifle) that was done up like the cricket. Home built job. Looked factory though.

    Yeah. Might be O.K. to use for the little folk while they learn to shoot. The ability to lengthen length of pull would definitely make it more usable longer. Too danged light for accurate shooting except off a bench 'n' rest, though. GET THEM YOUNG'UNS HOOKED ON TACTICOOL EARLY! :D

    Being a 22LR, at least it won't be a "Noisy Cricket"

    It's an abomination.  A kid shouldn't be subjected to such a non-traditional weapon in a traditional sport.

    You know I have no love myself for that style but I can see that being a real attention getter for a young shooter.
    So much so that if I find one locally I might find myself putting one away for a future grandchild.

    Oh. I guess since it doesn't look the way YOUR old ass thinks it should look, it's a Lego gun. And since it doesn't look the way your old ass thinks it should look, it's not a real, serious  gun. 
    Like  I said. When dumbass ideas like yours die out, we will be better off, and bring more shooters into the fold. You may not realize this, but guns that are made of walnut and blue steel aren't the only thing going these days. Not to mention not as popular with younger folks.  
    But, at least we will have your grandkids to carry on tradition.

    Very disrespectful for my old ass.  I fall back on my young days with a walnut and steel, single shot rifle and the smell of .22 smoke on a cold January morning.  No need then or now for a rail on the fore end for what?  A flashlight?  Once an advantage to a Lego rifle is established, I may change my mind, but for me, a Remington single shot or a Martini (my grandkids rifle) is much preferred.   They have SOUL.  This abomination is lacking in soul, but then so are most tactical rifles for those who are not tactical.  They're masturbatory.  A 10-year-old (IMO) doesn't need to be tactical, he needs to be a shooter.  If he decides to be tactical, that his/her decision at a later age, not a plastic rifle for one of that age.

    Added: "Cute???"  Do we need "cute" rifles in order to disengage the role of rifles in our society?  I don't think so.  I don't want, and don't own, a cute rifle.  If you do, you have my sympathy.

    You guys realize these stocks are a way to covertly steal your child's rifle right?

  • cpjcpj Senior Member Posts: 36,717 Senior Member


    The rail is there for mounting a bipod. Which along with scopes on a kids first gun I'm sure you're morally opposed.  You know, because they don't "need" either thing. Because you didn't need them.

    A bipod is necessary for squirrel hunting or rabbit hunting?  We're raising a bunch of kids to shoot at paper from a range.   Are we raising a bunch of wimps?  It's your call.

    What ever happened to open sight shooting instead of scopes and MOA without one.

    No. But it's pretty handy for teaching a kid to shoot. Funny, my  daughter started deer hunting at 8, got her first deer at 8, and has since shot 2 more. All have been on her. And she used.....a rest. A shooting stick! Dear God the horror! 
    Oh. She learned to shoot from a bench, and or a bipod. And she used a red dot sight and scope. Pretty terrible, I guess.  
    But here's the deal. I won't change your mind, and you won't change mine. I think you're a stubborn ass, and you think I'm an ass hole. Works for me. 👍

    And funny enough, I've seen a good number of grownass men who "learned the right way", on classics with open sights, who never used a rest because real men don't need one, miss the hell out of some deer.

    And?  But a Cricket is not a deer rifle.  Is there anything wrong with learning the basics on an open sight?
