Anyone have any first hand info on these rifles?  I'm thinking about buying one for my Son in 308.

................Any particular reason as to why a single shot? Those SPR 18`s are at a good low price for sure....... But if price is keeping you from a good quality bolt action for your son, then take a real good look at the light weight Marlin XL7 with an MSRP of only $326. It`s also better looking IMO, than the Savage/Stevens (same price range), with that ugly grey stock..........No 308`s however in the XL7`s. Just the 25-06, 270 Win. and the 30-06, which BTW for now, can always be loaded down to 308 levels. As your son grows, what better a round to grow into than the 30-06!!!............I was only 9 years old when my dad brought home my first rifle; a 30-06!

Well,
I want to force him to concentrate on making the first shot count, ergo a single shot.  .308 because I reload and shoot .308.  Lazy on my part I know.

Could try a handi-rifle also ,,, I have a 30/30  that I started my oldest out on when he was ten..Put an ATI adjustable stock that changed LOP with him as he grew..shoots 1.5moa with anything I feed it.

I like the handi survivor in 308. You can adjust the LOP with spacers on the stock and I have shot many sub MOA three shot groups with one. The bull barrel my bne a little heavy but it does help when shooting from a rest.
