I feel the 10/22 CRR would be your best bet if ya can find one...then go to a diff. stock later..about 14-15 yrs. old IF she gets over 5'8"ish..if not the CRR will work forever...if the CRR seems too long right now you could find and shorten a carbine stock on the cheep.My daughter is turning eight this year and is very interested in getting into shooting. I am going to get her shooting our pellet gun some more but saw a cricket up at Gander the other day that she would love. My question is after she out grows the cricket is there anything that can be done to help it grow with her or would I be better off getting a 10/22 and making it kid size for her? That way it can grow with her and not just get left unused in the safe. I want her to enjoy her self with a rifle that fits her but I don't wanna have to buy a new rifle in a year because she is too big for it either.
My Buddy had a Crickett for his kids and it scared the bajeebers outta me every time they cocked it...personal pref. I guess...I trained my lil' peeps on a 10/22 and I feel it's just as safe and much more gun. :bthumb:
