This air gun only comes in .177 only has a  break barrel cocking and loading system. This air rifle comes complete with a 3 -7x 20 scope.  As it only has a 13 inch pull it is just right for the smaller stature. Due to the size and weight it is much easier to handle and this is important when you are learning all about safety and how to use an air rifle responsibly.
