Default cricket rifles

Anyone have experience good or bad with these little rifles, I found one for a pretty good price, I'm thinking of picking up and saving it until our kid is old enough to learn to shoot it, and maybe do some plinking or squirrel hunting with it until them. So lets hear your experience with em, and post some pictures too if ya want. Thanks

I bought a pink crickett for my daughter years ago and its a very simple and easy rifle to teach kids with. Ours has been a good one. If I live long enough I will be teaching a future granddaughter to shoot with it.

Thanks for the info fits, this is a blued with black syn stock on it. If he still has it I'm going for it.

Bought this for my son as a Christmas gift when he was four or five. Shoots great. It has a BSA 4x32 scope on it. It has been a great training tool for my son.

I used one for a bit, I went with a breakover instead my fingers are to big to mess with the crickets I have a hard time loading them..
