The "Y" in the above designation is for "Youth" which I find flattering since I'm a fully qualified septuagenarian. The style and dimensions, however, are those of a "trapper". LOP is 13-1/2 inches which matches a Win '94 .30-30; barrel is 16" which is optimal for muzzle velocity, or so I read; and handling is as good as it gets for the brush and "mountains" of Vermont.
LittleDragon would like to contribute own favorite .22 caliber weapon. It is the Walther G22 Black A3 Bullpup competition quality sport rifle. This weapon was Ryo's very first firearm ever that was birthday present for 16th birthday. Ryo love this little bullpup rifle and will treasure it for rest of life. Would like to thank friend of father who is new member here: FordVG for making suggestion of this rifle to Ryo's father. Arigato gozaiemasu Victor chan!
