    Can anyone recommend any PCP Air Rifles for use on a 10 metre indoor range that would be suitable for youngsters to use for target shooting?

    No expert on this but I would have thought the target (low power) version of the Air Arms S200 might be something to consider as it is light and easy handle.

    I have to agree with that, at 6ft/lb the S200 works great with a very impressive shot count. It is a light rifle suited very well to this use.

    It's a small rifle and works well with youngsters. Very accurate as well.

    Thanks for the replies. Has anyone got any knowledge of the Hammerli AR20, which I heard is a good option?

    THe AR20 is too heavy for youngsters, mate - I had one and my 14 year old Niece couldn't shoot it. S200T is probably the answer here and won't break the bank. Although I had the 10m version of the MPR which was also very light and would fit the bill.

    Cheers, Craig

    I use a feinworkbau 500 poplar stock 6ft lb for my indoor bell target and is by far the lightest and accurate gun ive shot, from what I've been told its specifically designed for juniors. I have joint issues and cant use a heavy gun for standing . And highly recommend it x

    A club that I go to use the S200 for all new shooters and young un's in particular. Hard to beat at the price.

    There's a cadet version of the BSA Scorpion that the UK Cadet Force use - expensive, but might be worth a look.
