I need some advice on a really small .410 single. Some of the so-called youth guns are really more of a womens sized gun and still a bit big for the young shooter. I have seen some really short singles in the past but can't remember who actually made them. Any help would be great.

Hello,

I would recommend the Baikal junior model gun. I have it and have shot with it for 7 years now, another guy, on the general forum also recommends it alot. Great gun, if well cared for. Easy to break down, easy to clean. Shoots good too, and all kinds of ammo, from 3" magnums, to short 2" ers. It has a short length of pull, small stock, and a short barrel (24"), and most importantly, low weight. It really depends on who's shooting it, how tall is s/he?

I once bought a NEF single shot and had a gunsmith cut the stock to fit my son. he did a great job; looked like the gun eas made that way, and cost me about $60. The only difference was that this was a 20 gauge, but you can find light loads for them.

This may or may not be what you are looking for but when I was young, (late 70's) my father bought me a single shot .410 "snake charmer" . The gun was extremely tiny and short and by five years old, yes five, I was mastering the art of shooting aluminum soda cans with 2 3/4 shells. I saw a version of this gun in a gun shop in the late 90's. Just like my original but it had a safety instead of just a hammer and trigger. For the really small young gun this would be absolutely ideal. I'd assume someone out ther knows where to find one. If not get in touch with me and I'll see if I can help. Thanks, Ox.

As robie said, the New England Firearms single shot .410 is really small and has almost no kick. Thats what I started out on and its a really great starter gun.

Rossi makes a .410 / .22 cal combo gun. The overall length is 31.5" and the length of pull is 12.5". They sell for about $150, including the case. It is a great gun for kids. Good luck - Stu

I agree on the Rossi set. I started my daughter on a 20/22 combo when she was 7. This was the smallest match I could find and she LOVES it still. She now shoots a Browning BPS but still has a soft spot for the old Rossi Single.
