Bolt action is nice and solid, my 10yr old had not used a bolt action before, he was able to open close bolt, load removable clip after a few minutes of teaching. Well balanced and as a bonus the stock comes with spacers to make it into a full length stock if mom or dad is sighting it in, or when youth grow you can put the
spacers back in and out.
picked up on sale at Cabelas for around $500, lowest I've seen.
Synthetic stock stands up excellent to wear and tear without showing it.
This is a rifle you can keep in the family for generations.
