This rifle, built for my 9-year-old daughter, Ava, by Charlie Sisk on a Remington 700 action incorporates numerous features that make it well suited to a chlid. With a 20-inch barrel and light McMillan stock (1) it weighs only 7 pounds scoped. At its lowest setting, the 2-7x33 Leupold (2) gives lots of eye relief, provides a wide field of view and lessens aiming anxiety by minimizing perceived wobble. Chambered in the soft-shooting .257 Roberts (3), it has a detachable magazine (4) that lets the parent control the ammunition until it is time to shoot. A quality trigger (5), in this case a Jewell, helps encourage better marksmanship and shooting skills. The thinned-down grip (6) is easier for a child's smaller hand to grasp, providing better control over the rifle in general and the trigger pull. The shortened length of pull (12.25 in.) (7) allows for proper form and makes the rifle more comfortable during recoil. To learn more about Charlie Sisk's rifles, go to siskguns.com.
