Hello, I am getting into some airgun fun with my kids. We have a decent property to setup a nice plinking course for them.
For myself I am interesting in trying out some 10m Target shooting.
I don't yet have my PAL since local shop isn't running courses with COVID19 going on. So looking at something non PAL.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a Bolt Action Target rifle. I would like something in a Repeater. I have looked at AR2078A, I understand there are Repeater kits out there but can't find a source in Canada. Is this a legality issue maybe?

I am thinking CO2 as I am not committing to PCP just yet.
Looking forward to hearing some suggestions.

Scott

Welcome to the madness. It's great that you are teaching the young generation the pleasure and responsibility of real things. Nowadays, especially with COVID to much has gone virtual. This us no existence for mankind. Anyhow I digress.
Consider a Artemis CR600 CO2 rifle, it is a 7 shot repeater in .22 and is comparable in accuracy to a AR2078 although not strictly a "target" rifle - it's small and lightweight, and could be fitted with target sights if you desired.

Thank you,
I recently bought a Crosman R1 so that has my sons attention, my daughter though showing very little interest so far.

I did look at the CR600 and if it were offered in target style stock I'd be all over it. I am better with a Biathlon/pistol style grip as I am in am in a wheelchair also with weak hand dexterity.
Maybe there are option stocks for the CR600 like there are the QB78/AR2078...

Unfortunately, not; and they are too new for anyone to have dreamed up aftermarket stocks. How about a Diana Chaser with extended stock?
Or a old school Daisy 853 or 953 Cadet single stroke pneumatic?
