I'm looking to get a youth rifle for my step daughter. I don't want to spend a lot and I like the idea you can switch barrels.
Any thoughts ?

I know that the one that I have is a shooter

The only thing that I have found wrong it and I am going to send it off to have looked at is that the gun will not accept regular Winchester shell, it will take the Super X, but the ones in the gray boxes will not let the gun close all the way.

:cheers:

Did you float them your self? If so, how did you do it?

Dremmel tool & a rubber O ring, on the .243 & used a washer on the .270, then re-stained the fore arms where I took the wood off. Cheap float.
