We've featured firearms from throughout the industry and history in the Gun of the Week series, but Savage's Rascal is the first entry that was designed exclusively with young gun enthusiasts in mind.

An appropriately scaled down rifle that will offer young shooters an ideal fit, the Rascal is a single-shot .22 that's designed help break in beginners and prepare them for the responsibilities of firearm use and ownership.
