I remember the TU series selling for around $200-250 when first introduced. These days they're in the $350-400 ballpark and only available in the secondary market.
As to the mini m91/30, everyone knows how much I love a good .22 trainer. We'll see if it gains traction in the market. Are there enough kids who are history wonks (I know I was) to make the concept work? Me, I'd probably look for a Polish Wz-48 for a trainer instead as it's in the same price range and assuming it fit the child properly.

I like the idea of the mini mosin because I can take friends out and have them get a feel for the rifle with 22 and then if the want to “upsize” they can shoot the real one.

They have one at Engage in Rockville and its small, like the cricket.
short Length of Pull and being a "mini".
There was no gap like the photo and the fit and finish looked much better on the real thing.
Single Shot. would be a novelty for say indoor range shooting at 25 yards.
Rear sights are more like an old lever action, not quite a buckhorn but they could have done it more historic as well as easier to see (like the Henry lever 22, I love those sights)

If it was magazine fed I'd be all over it. Single shot .22s never did a lot for me

Only bad thing is it's the same single shot action as the Crickett.

Art has a .22 Mini Garand that is very nice. I forget who made it, but they unfortunately went out of business I believe. It has a 10/22 style action. Fun little plinker!

Actually, I have a similar one that is 1948 Polish single shot with the 'Archer' logo before the Soviets forced Circxle 10 on the Poles. Very interesting feeding ramp and very accurate, beautiful condition. I've been thinking of selling it.

Talk to me when you do, please! I’ve got a perfect condition non-archer WZ48. Would love to have an early logo for the collection.
