Mossberg .308 in youth With 22 inch barrel with adjustable stock will run you 379.00 at bobs in longview.  Compact lightweight handles the same as my other kids .243

I've got a buddy in pullman who is selling two Ruger American rifles in 7-08.  His boys shot them for a few years but they upgraded since they are now in their early teens.  I'm don't believe they are youth models so depending on how tall/big they are they may have to long of a LOP.  I am happy to reach out to him if your interested.

D-Rock should have specified he is looking for a .243 or 6.5 grendel youth model. He already has a 7/08 for his other daughter and it's got a bit too much pop for her.

I bought my daughter the .243 youth Ruger for $250 a few years ago and have seen them still at similar price.  For the price its a great gun and she was very comfortable with it.  She was about 5'2" at the time and barely 5'4" now and still loves it.  Pretty light as well.

Ruger Americans always get my nod of approval. Only issue with them these days they want $400 for them new 🤦‍♂️ if a guy can score one used for closer to that $300 mark then now we're talkin

Thanks for that information. 

D-rock

How much are you looking to spend?  If you want a rifle she will keep for the rest of her life, look at the Savage Lady hunters.  It will fit a youth and designed for a lady hunters.  I have a couple and may be willing to part with the .243 if your interested.  If you reload, I also have everything needed for that too.  PM me if your interested and we can discuss price, scope reloading etc.

Karl-
Do you think the model 7 I got from you a couple years ago would work for the kid? I havenít touched it since I got it from you.

D-Rock if youíre interested, let me know. Itís a .243. I think I could fine a scope I could throw on it.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

that would be a great rifle for her. Addison shot her first deer with it so it has good mojo  :chuckle:
