I have the Ruger American rimfire compact for my son. Takes 10-22 mags. I bought it for him when he was 9. I'm getting him a 10-22 for Christmas this year and he 'll already have a stash of mag's for it.

Harking back to post #3 - The point of a ( presumably ) training rifle is to gain marksmanship skills . This is gained thru things like proper form , careful aiming, and smooth trigger control . Mag dumps not so much .

Remington has a Model 5, comes with 5 shot clip and single shot clip. HEAVY wood stock, might be to heavy but is another option

I am not a cricket fan

We have two Ruger American Rimfires in our family. My wife bought one, and I could never get to use it, so I bought my own!!

We also have two 10/22's.........

Another even better option is the CZ Scout. It comes with a single shot sled, but takes standard 5 or 10 round magazines. My son used one for NRA small bore target shooting until he graduated to a full-sized rifle. The rifle was exceptionally accurate.

Second this.

CZ has a mag interrupt that only allows one round to go into what's normally a 5 round mag. Can be taken out when kid's ready later. Doesn't require a separate trainer mag.

I agree with Hawkeye. I thought the Cricket was a PIA so I bought the Savage Rascal for my younger grandkids. It fits them well and they have no problem operating it. This week, I ordered the Ruger American Rimfire for my older grandkids. The model that was on sale at CDNN was the standard model, so I ordered a set of the compact stock inserts for it. They have already shot the Ruger at the youth shoots at my club and did very well with it.

Another vote for the Savage Rascal. Both of my girls started shooting theirs when they were 4. Perfect for teaching safety and basic marksmanship.

Have you looked at the Henry Tbolt I bought one for my daughter to replace her cricket and it shoots exactly like the cricket single shot.
