As a single shot bolt action, specially if someone wants to get into competition shooting, check out rifles like from Anschütz, Walther or Feinwerkbau.
Here an example at gunbroker.com
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=323943760

Heavy match grade barrel, match hair trigger, 11mm prism mount for Diopter or scopes.
We have three such rifles in my gun club and they very accurate bastards.
It`s just a matter of pricing. If you can find a dealer in Germany that would export a rifle to the US, you can get very good bargains partially for less then € 200,- for the rifle.

Check out this link to a german firearm auction plattform:

Just as I said before, the very best rimfire rifles are single shot models as far as accuracy goes. The extra stiffness of the receiver, made possible by the lack of a need for a hole for ammo to feed into the chamber, makes for the most accurate rifle possible. Given two guns with equal quality barrels, the one with the single shot action should be the most accurate.

I have two rifles that prove this IMO. One is a rimfire and the other is a .223. Both are made by Savage. The rimfire shoots shorts, longs and long rifles making it as versatile as it gets. The .223 is just unbelievably accurate for a factory built rifle. People may want to read up on what Team Savage is doing in F Class and F/TR with rifles like the one I have. They are blowing away custom built rifles with off the rack models. That is an amazing thing and according to the Savage people I have probably the best rifle Savage makes (same action as the target rifles but with a better balanced barrel that's 4" shorter than the target models). I always knew a single shot meant accuracy because I grew up with the Stevens single shot I have now. I've been around that rifle as long as I can remember and it has always shot as well as any other rifle around.

Target shooters often convert their rifles to single shot models for various reasons. They are hard to beat. They're as durable as it gets and they're as accurate as it gets. And often they are cheaper too. What's not to like?

Default Kid's picked their first .22

I had posted before, years ago My two preteen girls glommed onto a Cricket in the gun shop, I impulse bought it ($130) and was the best money I'd spent on a firearm ever.

I'd try'd other single shots on them kids before before but they just didnt seem too enthused with them (marlin 10, Savage 73Y, ithca 49, Stevens 30, H&R handi rifle) they love the cricket and it goes out every time when we go out, a year later my youngest girl was with me and we couldent leave till we had another cricket go home with us.

we have both youth models, one in Blue/Black and one Pink/Stainless

The Crown Prince was a Marlin M100. Started production in 1936, ended 1960.
Here is my 1952 JC Higgins 103.18 (M100).
