ar too many youngsters are introduced to the shooting sports by well-meaningparents who hand their sons or daughters a rifle that is too heavy and out of proportion for them to handle comfortably. Not so with the 801 Half Pint. Here's a bolt-action single shot .22LR rifle designed specifically for young shooters as an ideal starter gun. The Half-Pint's 12 1/4" length of pull, 16" barrel, and 4 pound weight make for a rifle that mounts easily, even for the smallest of shooters. And all the necessary features are there - a grooved receiver for the easy mounting of a scope when the time comes; a blued metal finish with a durable hardwood stock; a free-floating barrel and fully adjustable iron sights. As your young shooter becomes more familiar with the gun and more experienced, the removeable magazine plug can be replaced with an optional 10-shot magazine, easily converting the Half-Pint into a repeater.
