Best youth gun | XT-22 Youth Series
Kids face an uphill battle when learning to shoot with adult-sized rifles. Marlin has mitigated that concern with its new series of .22s. Featuring a shorter stock, smaller grip and raised comb, the XT-22 Youth is designed to fit a smaller frame. It’s capable of handling .22 shorts, longs and long-rifle cartridges and has a fully adjustable trigger. And when your child grows, you can simply swap out the stock for a full-size version.
