I would like some advise on buying a .22 rifle for my 6yr daughter. We went shooting last weekend and she had a blast. But my 10/22 was too heavy (even with the flutes) and the stock was too long. I had to hold the front of the gun. She even took the targets home to show her mom that she got 2 bullseyes. Made her day. Anyhow, I just am looking for something for a starter that is reliable, and a bolt action if fine, actually preferred. Thanks.

Look for a chipmunk youth rifle.

Henry Mini Bolt.

Better sights, stainless steel and synthetic stock.

Just start pumping steriods into her for a Nicole Bass affect!

Ditto on the Henry mini-bolt.

If the Ruger is too heavy, I assume it has the bull barrel with the flutes. How about just getting a stock barrel and stock for it? They are pretty cheap on Ebay or someone here may have a set for sale. Lots of guys just upgrade the stock barrel and stocks with the target bull barrel style and get rid of the stock ones. I did the same thing and chopped the stock down to fit my kids better.....easier to do when you only paid like $20 for the stock.
