I never heard of an adult Cricket. I didn't know they had one. I was thinking about buying a youth Circket for my 9 year old grand son. I'll probably do that this weekend. I do have 2 single shot 22's. I just purchased a Savage model 3. It's old but it's in nice shape. I couldn't pass on ti at a show about 3 weeks ago. It's a great rifle. I also have a DSM 34. That was the training rifle for the Mauser 98k. I traded some car parts for that back in the early 80's. That might be my favorite rifle. There are many great 22 rifles. Let us know how you make out.

Ruger 10/22 isn't a single fire but you can pick them up relatively cheap and they are a great reliable gun.

Years ago I bought my son a Chipmunk(same as a Cricket) and it is a great rifle. Very light and shoots quite well.

Savage makes several single shots. Look up a Mark I G or if you really want nostalgia look at the 30G Stevens Favorite also by Savage. They also make a Rascal which is similar to the Cricket. http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/ Go to rimfire and single shot in the gun browser.

If you could an older Remington 5 teen, they are great rifles.

I've got a Remington Model 580 single shot bolt gun I purchased from a pawn shop used for $100 out-the-door. Love the rifle to the point it'll end up in my estate. If I had to sell my .22's, I'd have to do a coin toss to see which gun would be sold last, my custom 10/22 or Model 580, with the understanding that if the Remington has to be sold before the 10/22, it'll be for $500 FIRM- even though the price is more than the rifle is really worth.

Shoots pretty good groups to 25 yards- isn't set up for 50 yards and beyond and haven't tried it at 50-= and can shoot ANY ammo I can chamber in the gun- short, long, and long rifle. With proper ammo, I've got more one-shot squirrel kills with this rifle than I have with all of my other .22's combined- one shot or more.

Have patience, keep the faith and leave the Cricket where it is and just keep looking. You'll eventually find what you really want and be happier with what you end up with.

My wife loves our single shot .22. It's an old Ranger .22. It's very simple, fun, and non-threatening to shoot single shot rifles. If your gal wants a single-shot .22, move heaven and earth to get her one--even a pink one! Then she can have fun at the range with you. Just don't take over her decision, make sure she gets one that she likes and that fits her.

I am looking for a single shot .22 rifle for my son. Hes getting into 4-H's shooting sports in March but he needs the gun first. Right now he's been using his pellet rifle for practice in the yard but I am overwhelmed at the options and don't know where to go to really get a good solid idea! He's 13 but he's about 5'8" and growing. So far he has used my uncles adult gun with no issues so if you have any suggestions I would really appreciate any help!
