    Im only 3-4 years early, but I had sold a bunch of stuff and wanted to secure this now.

    I’ve looked at a lot of single shot trainers with kid sized stocks. Only after purchasing a savage in 17hmr did I discover their rascal line. It’s a bit easier to load and you can not accidentally discharge it from miscocking anything.

    Of coarse with a pending silencer, I wanted his to be threaded too.

    I would have liked to get the regular model and the iron peep sights, but I’d prefer him being able to use the can when the time comes. Besides, I had an extra red dot lying around and I found Stormwerks made a mount.

    I’m stupid excited to take him shooting in times to come. I still remember the day my dad took me and my older brother.

    I’m really enjoying being a dad and this little gun will remind me every time I see it if the future enjoyment I’ll get to share with him!

    Just had to share!

    Nice. Is a proper cheek weld going to be possible with that setup?

    My now three year old got his first rifle before he was born and just got his third given to him the other day.
    I feel your excitement of taking my kids shooting. Plus I get to play with their guns until they are old enough to take them away!

    Negitive. It’s even worse on the FVSR(my sons first rifle) Savage must assume your gunna upgrade to a Boyd or whatever...
    Here’s my solution...

    I found this cheek riser at a gun show for $10, and used a self tapper to screw it down. Works great.

    Almost 10 months.

    Probably not. I could figure out something in the time I have between now and his first shots.

    This is another argument for the safe hearing act...
    A dad shouldn’t have to spend $600 for something to protect his child’s hearing, and make the father son bonding more enjoyable.

    A couple days ago, I was sitting on the living room couch with my son and the FVSR loaded with CCI standard velocity...shooting through the window at some pop cans in the yard, and my wife couldn’t even hear it from the next room. She got mad about the brass all up in the cushions though:D

    We got a Chipmunk for my boys to learn on their first year, and then the next year, I got them matching Savage MK-IIs with irons! It was a lot of fun teaching them and watching them get good at it! I still have that little Chipmunk to pass to my brother so he can use it to teach his little ones in a year or so! Cant wait to see them learn, another Generation of responsible 'Murican shooters!:)

    For a good cheek piece, you can always fold a piece of Kydex and screw it to the stock, that way you can adjust it to any height you need, and it's super cheap!

    I bought a Rascal for my two younger boys. Your not missing anything by not having the peep sights. They are not very good. They are a pain to adjust. Keep thinking about adding a red dot to it. How much was the mount and how was the install?

    It was 30 from Stormwerks.com. Easy two screw install.

    I actually bought that model for my son because of the peep sights. They were a lot better to me than the sights on the other youth starter rifles. Now he has outgrown it and mostly shoots my 10/22 or ARs. Now it's time to look for a pink one for my oldest daughter. I'm hoping if I keep these they will teach their kids to shoot with them someday.
