The Cub is ready to mount. It is grooved for 22 rings.

Here is a nice link about this type of gun.

Glad to hear it! Thanks for the update and no matter the gun you chose the important part is the time you will share with your son and grandson. Nothing I can think of brought as much joy to me as a kid as shooting with my Granddad and hunting with my Dad and Uncle. The conversations and life lessons shared with me during those times has helped shape the father, uncle and grandfather I am today.

Another vote for the Crickett. As a father to six with a shooting range just out the back door for many years the Crickett saw a lot of action. The gun itself is a cheap piece of metal and plastic. The memories I have associated with it though are priceless.

The CZ is great but it is much more expensive (and worth it) and too large for a five year old.
