Had a Brain flashback on previous post. I got a .22 Hot Shot for my grandson. Anyone have some pros or cons on these?

I have only heard positives on these. Getting harder to find I guess for that reason.

In my opinion, the best of the youth 22 rifles. I had a Chipmunk, a Rascal, a CZ Scout, and a Hotshot for my kids. The Hotshot was the most accurate and light enough for the kids to shoot off hand.

I think so, wish I could find one at a decent price. I saw one a while back, but I could have bought a complete centerfire TC version or a nice CZ plus ammo for the price. I couldn't bring myself to buy it.

They've been discountiued, which is why they're now getting hard to find.

Two years ago, I was able to buy a new Boy Scout Commemorative Hot Shot at an LGS for relatively little money, for one of my younger Grandsons.

He loves it to death.....................

Just found this post, I bought one of these a few years back for my Grandson..He loved it ! The one issue we did have was with Super Colibi ammunition...Seem the brass is a little more stout on their ammo, many times had to double tap them to get ignition. Sent it back to Smith and Wesson twice....Finally remedied the issue...He out grew it, I put two of the buttpad extensions on it and use it to shoot striped gophers and red squirrels in our yard in town wit Super Colibri...VERY QUIET !!!

I also just noticed this thread. I was lucky enough to grab one of these when they were still available new.

Itís not only one of the best, if not the best, youth rifles ever, IMHO itís one of the best single shots ever. I bought mine for myself and Iím not a youth!

I added an extra stock extender, (it came with an extra), and it fits me perfectly. Light as a feather and is amazingly accurate and I love the peep sights it came with. It was dead on at 25 yds. right out of the box and seems to shoot accurately anything I try in it.

Build quality is very good and it was very inexpensive and I donít know why it came and went so quickly. Maybe because of itís ďyouthĒ moniker. All I can say is if you can find one, grab it. You wonít be disappointed.

IDK why T/C discontinued them.

I was fortunate enough to buy one of the Boy Scout commemorative Hot Shot's (like t he one below) for my youngest Grandson.








A perfect "boy's gun".

I like it better than the Chipmunk/Cricket I bought for my oldest Grandson (now 28 y.o.), because cocking the Chipmunk's bolt is very hard for a young'n to do.

Took mine to a friends house and compared it to his .44 mag. We were laughing about how it is a twin except shrunk over 50%.
