The Henry Mini Bolt Youth .22 is the perfect rifle for introducing youngsters to shooting and hunting, named the official youth rifle of the USA Olympic Shooting Team. The result is a rifle that is virtually kid proof. The Mini Bolt's one-piece synthetic stock has an 11.5" length of pull and is ideally proportioned for smaller shooters. Its single-shot, European-style bolt action makes it a safe, reliable starter gun for your youngster. Weighing in at a feather-light 3.25 lbs., kids won't mind toting it to the range or through the woods. To maximize safety, Henry outfitted the Mini Bolt with a manually operated safety switch that, when set, prevents the gun from firing even when cocked. The beavertail forearm includes wraparound checkering that makes it easy for young hands to grip. The stainless steel barrel comes fitted with high-visibility Williams Fire sights using two bright green fiber-optic dots on the adjustable rear sight and one red dot for the front bead so young eyes can get on target easily even in low-light conditions.
