If I put a telescoping stock on my pre-ban (in the collapsed position)would it be short enough to be used as a youth rifle???

That would depend on how big the youth is. I personally would prefer a good .22 for my boys. As you are Wis and have Dunhams sports there. I would let you in on the deal of the decade. Romanian .22 bolt action trainers for $59. Well built and very accurate. I bought one for each of my boys, and one for me. Just my feeling but I think my kids can get by on rimfire until they can buy their own.

Started out my then 6 year old boy with a .22 Chipmunk. Was just the right size for him. I also have a dedicated .22 upper that I put on a pre-ban BM with a collapsible stock that he really enjoys.

I bought my son a Crickett .22 www.crickett.com

One of my ARs with a collapsed telestock is also the right length for him, but it's too muzzle heavy for him to shoot easily. I plan on building him up an AR with the lightest components I can find when I move him to centerfire.

I did that for my boy when he was 9 and it worked fine.
