The little rifles are to scale for a young person, not just a cut down stock and a short barrel. These little rifles become family heirlooms and hand me downs to brothers and sisters and grand children. They are really a several generation heirloom. Our family has .22's .410s, 20 gauges, and single shot .223's for this purpose. A few are still being used by my youngest grandson and are available for the grand daughters. They will be put up for a few years until my youngest son has kids and once again be brought out to put a smile on their faces, and I will really be an old fart then.
