I bought my grandson a Savage Rascal. It has an accu triger, peep sight, and a feed ramp. It's not pull to cock. It cocks on open and has a thumb safety. He does very well with it. There are many nice yourh rifles. I'm happy with my pick.

+1 on the savage rascal. My girl has a pink one, and it shoots good. I put a scope on it for her, but haven't shot it since.

Too bad the gun shows are not carrying the youth guns like they use to. None of my guns shops have any to do a hands on with

+1 for the savage rascal, Great first rifle as long as its size is correct
for the user. Will teach and reinforce proper gun safety being a single shot bolt action.

I recently purchased one for my granddaughter,
only took her three shots to get use to it and the fourth shot was
right in target.

She adapted to the sights quickly, this being only the second time she has been shooting and this first time with her own rifle. She may out grow it quickly and a second rifle will have to purchased but will most likely never get rid of it

Shooting has quickly become one of her favorite things to do, it is a great confidence builder. I now use going shooting as a reward for good behavior
and almost have an angel.

Due to Remington bowing to NY they are off the list..

had a look at the Stoger yesterday, nice wood stock, decent peep sight, spring loaded feed ramp so it will be easy to load, high on the list...

The Cricket is OK but no feed ramp so harder to chamber a round for tiny hands ....

Bought a pink cricket for my little girl today. Wife wasn't happy about it, by the time she is old enough to shoot the price will be double. It's an investment.

You are a good Dad!!

But over the years I have noticed one thing, the prices of the youth guns is actually quite stable as it is a limited market...

Now if they made youth M4's and not just M4's tricked out for youths...

If this little one hasn't even been born yet, you still have a few years left before you have to make the decision so do some research and look at a few of the options available. BTW, have you consulted with the parents-to-be about this new gun? They need to be in the loop and may have an opinion on the gun their son/daughter may be shooting.

FWIW, I got my youngest boys a Cricket when they were small. They began to shoot around age 7 and really enjoyed the little rifle. It's simple yet accurate. However, they outgrew it in just a couple of years. They are teens now but still like to shoot it... one handed like a bolt action pistol. When the want to shoot a .22 rifle, they prefer the M&P 15-22 I bought a few years ago or my Henry Golden Boy.
