Default Savage youth rifles vs reg Savage

I'm looking to by a Savage 243 for my grandson. Anyone ever seen them side by side? They tell me Savage makes a stock where you can remove part of it. However, I need it to be as short as possible.

Any other recomendations are certainly appreciated.

Thanks

I started my sons deer hunting at 5. Both were too small for even youth rifles. I chose the CVA break action .243. It was the smallest gun on the market at the time. They’ve now killed over a dozen deer with it and it’ll be the last year my 8 year old uses it. Savage youth rifles vs reg Savage-933e7182-8f4e-432e-b383-f9e5fa34fa4b-jpg

I have a CVA 7mm08. I wonder what the recoil difference is?

I would really like to find one of the New England break action 243.

He will be fine with the 7mm-08.

There are a few options out there for reduced recoil factory loads for the 7mm-08.

Is there a 3 day waiting period in Florida to purchase a long gun? Older gentlemen at Academy said there was today. However, he did appear to be firing on all cylinders.

What caliber did you choose? Love my savage model 110. Not a fan of the axis models though
