Every little girl needs an SKS with a bayonet.

Relatively cheap plinking ammo, relatively effective hunting ammo available, youth-sized LOP in the original stock, and easy operation, perfect for the youngsters.

Keep looking; my nephew knows a guy who is selling some of that latest batch of Chinese type 56's (via the Balkans as "aid guns" or something) for $350 and up depending on condition, good metal "worn" wood.

The 13 yr old has wonderful gun safety, pretty much hand her a gun and she'll shoot it, shoots my mosin and loves the recoil lol. I think the younger one will receive a cricket because she's so small, has trouble looking down the scope on my .22 mag because of it's size. The older sis can shoot a mosin so it'd take a hell of a kick and a heavy @$$ rifle to shy her away. The 9lb 7.62x54r is nothing to her so I'm not really sure what to get her. Unfortunately the budget is tight, around 200$. There are NO mosins around my area or I'd get her her own. Honestly think she'd be disappointed with a (sissy) gun. Her words, not mine lol. Thinking of a possibly used axis in .270? Want something not crazy expensive to shoot but something she'll b happy with and proud to shoot Idk, what's your thoughts and opinions?
U can look into Ruger American rifles for about $350 they r nice rifles

Ok, a friend of mine has a mosin but I'm not sure what model, it has a comp stock on it. I just wondered if by chance you were in ohio but you are a good 4-5 hrs from me. Also the cricket looks like a great kids gun, walmart for a little over a 100. Saw one today. Also, if you are into outdoor hiking at all, what about the ?henry? 22 that breaks down into the stock? They were about 190""before".

Take a look at what local pawn shops have. You might find something you like. I have purchased a few older guns at reasonable prices from pawn shops.
