    Gun for ten year old.

    This is one case for a Crosman Ratcatcher with CO2.
    Bsa Ultras can be found discounted. If you could bear a springer then Weihrauch do junior models.
    Start 'em young I say!

    I started my son out with a QB78/XS78. They are great little CO2 rifles and cheap too. We bought a full set up for less than £100 brand new from Dead on Target.

    I'd go with a Crosman Ratcatcher definitely - CO2 powered, very light and easy to handle.

    Young gun

    Hi Radman, When I was 10 I'd have probbaly ruined a PCP in a matter of hours!! These days he'll need to be supervised so if he's clued up on PCP hygene,go for the AA S200

    Nice little springer

    Baikal IZH 61 side lever .177 and a nice little gun with enough poke for in close hunting...the barrel is a match effort and is very accurate and comes with two five shot mags...I have shot one of these and they are a bundle of fun and at £70.00 they are not expensive.

    Be careful of getting an S410 as I have just bought one for my son and he can't cock it. I'll be tuning up a QB78 for him as he only really wants to plink not target shoot.
