Here is another one to consider,,,
Mossberg 801 Half-Pint Plinkster
It comes as a single-shot,,,
but you can remove the magazine plug,,,
Then you can utilize 10 shot 802 Plinkster magazines.
I've not fired one but I have handled one in a gun store,,,
It seems like a very fine little starter rifle for kids.
Just another option for you to explore.
