My 11 year old son's shooting competitively with the local 4-H chapter again this year. .22lr with iron sights at short range. He shot last year with a Browning semi-automatic that's a hell of a rabbit gun, but isn't really set up for target shooting. He did well, and was a member of the first three-shooter team from our county to ever medal at the district competition, but he's finally realized he needs a target rifle rather than a hunting rifle. I'm looking for opinions on which rifles to look at. He'll be prone with support this year, 3 position with no support after that. I'd prefer a bolt action. Budget is $600 because his mom and I are both teachers. I'm thinking Savage, but I'm definitely open to suggestion. Pic unrelated.

Get him an Anizo. They have a pretty good range.

CZ 455 or Browning T-Bolt

>Anzio

Went and googled it. That might be a bit much for the indoor law enforcement range where the district shoots are held.

>>35196826
Fuck, *Anizo

>>35196847
I'm really liking that T-bolt. Thanks.

>>35196847
Then I saw the CZ with a factory Mannlicher stock. Lawdy, it's purty!
>>
>>35196791
How tall is he?

I really like the Savage Rascal for a very small single shot, but he might need a bigger rifle.

The Ultra Lux is the way to go in my opinion. Gives you the longest sight radius and you really cannot go wrong with a 455. In my experience, they're the best .22 out of the box aside from anzio and I think they put the T-bolt to shame. The trigger, finish and barrel quality is stellar. Easily a half inch gun at 75 yards and you're paying under $400 in most markets.

oh shit no iron sights nevermind OP

I have a CZ 455 Lux and I love it.
I shot 9 different boxes of .22lr and made 9 seperate groupings to see what my rifle liked best and got really tight groupings with a couple of them.

I love the action on it.

Get a 25 round mag for fun.

Just under 5 feet tall. Shoots a 52" recurve in competition, not that it gives you much useful info regarding length of pull. He's got a Mossberg 702 and the LOP is fine. My old JC Higgins (read as "Marlin from the Sears catalog made before they put serial numbers on them") is just a little too long, but he's got two years to grow before he shoots anything other than prone at competition.

After much searching of boards I don't frequent, I can't find anybody who seems to know a damn thing about guns that dislikes the CZ. I was thinking about going with the varmint version, but the ultra lux is pretty interesting with that long barrel. A good aftermarket aperture sight set ought to turn one of those into a better shot than he'll be until he can buy his own damn guns.

>>35197474
That's an awfully short barrel for irons.
>>
>>35197844
I know a guy who regretted his varmit purchase because of no irons,and the standard cz sights are really nice.
