Matthew and his Remington Model 6


Matthew was given a vintage Remington Model 6 by a good friend of the family, who clearly needs a grandson ;).

Dave rescued this gun, when he picked it up it was in pieces.  He reworked the stock and had another buddy of ours sandblast it and paint it.  

The Remington Model 6 is a great ‘small’, child sized 22 rifle.  Single shot, rolling block.   You can read more about it here.

Saturday was the first opportunity, since he received it to shoot it.

We printed some targets and took it, Matthew and a box of 22LR out to the range.


“I got this Dad”.


Matthew shot surprisingly well.   Lucky?  Maybe.   For the most part he was within 3 inches of the bull at 15 yards, on paper all day.   Not bad for a 5 1/2 year old. 

He was stoked.
