I just recently bought my 6 year old a .17 Rifle. Hes wanting to go a little bigger. I'm not sure but as you can see the value of the rifle he has is well worth what I paid. I even liked the reviews so much I bought them in a pair at the time. Considering This gun is only 6 months old. He only fired it 6 times. At the time we had a few buddies around and we wanted to try a little bigger rifle so we put him on a AR-15 Semi, and he loved it. (not that I'm going to be purchasing him one of his own. But $300 for the gun is a steal and alot of help getting my son to love firearms.
