Most kids start off their journey in shooting sports with the mild-mannered and cost-effective .22 caliber, and for good reason. Building a strong foundation by learning proper sight picture, the cardinal rules of safe gun handling, and the responsibility that goes with handling a firearm is much easier when there’s no recoil to contend with.
Eventually, their journey in the shooting sports might sprout an interest in hunting and they set their sights on bagging a whitetail. For that, no .22 caliber rifle will do. To cater to these ambitious youngsters, Henry makes the Single Shot Youth Rifle chambered in the incredibly versatile .243 Winchester.
Like their other youth models, this rifle is built to the same exacting standards as its larger counterpart. The key difference lies with the buttstock being 1” shorter to make a length of pull of 13” from the end of the buttstock to the trigger.
It shares the same action and quality of materials as their other Single Shot models, including the ambidextrous locking lever setup that blocks hammer contact with the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled, and prevents the action from breaking or closing when the hammer is cocked for an extra layer of safety.
