Thank you for your info. I'll keep it a 24" barrel, the gun will be a carry gun for my boy. Although, I'm sure I will want to steal it every now and then to play with.
As his 1st rifle, is there any things you all suggest that I have done to the rifle besides the re-barreling. Meaning, I want it to be pretty accurate, but we don't want to spend the moon. We are going to use the old stock for now until he gets bigger, then we will get a good custom stock. Should the re-barreling increase the accuracy of this rifle? Or do I need to have work done on the action? etc. Any input on this would be helpful.
Thanks again, Steve
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
