Default Scout rifle for younger kid?

I'm looking for a M6 scout rifle it fires .22lr/.410 shells and is lever action
I seen a guy talk about one on a YouTube video.
Who's making these rifles and does anyone own one?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The one i shot as a youngster was the military version; it had noooo padding on the butt and kicked like a tiny mule with the .410. It was the old .22 hornet model. If you do it, figure out some padding for the kid's shoulder.

Yea, I think there's a lot better options out there for you to select.

Isn't EAA selling some of those Bakail shotgun/rifle over/under guns now? I bet the ergonomics would be MUCH better.

I had a H&R .410 single shot as a kid (still in the safe) and loved it, but it had an actual stock, forestock, and a plastic backer to the wooden stock. The M6 was designed to be an emergency survival gun and isn't as comfortable.

The M6 might b a nice toy for U, but not a child. Try a .22 Crickett?

I second this. I originally bought an old Sears & Roebuck .22lr model 3T for my 8 year old son. It was a little big for him lengthwise. I then went and bought him a single shot, bolt action Cricket. Nice little rifle for $150. Perfect size for a young kid. Heck, I even have fun shooting it.

Comfort is a big part of control when learning.
