Not for a 9 year old. I'd go 400 every time if she can handle it ok but an s200 as a second choice dependant on fit. You can alter adapt the standard 400 stocks as they are relatively cheap. I have a spare nearly new 400 beech stock if you need one, it's 'free gratis' for a young shooter to alter or adapt if needed.
I had the same issues 20 years ago with my daughter so I know what it's like. It's not for sale otherwise though.

Default Thanks Dean

I'm very great full for the generous offer. It might be worth trying to get hold of a cheap s400 and have the stock made to fit. Making the stock shorter so she can get closer to the scope, will probably bring her support arm more central. This might work.

Any thoughts on the TDR version? I've seen a few on free adds. Most ar 22 thou.

The TDR has a very low shot count and you'll find almost all are multi shot and .22. I would take our Dean up on his offer as we can get someone at the club to chop a section out of a stock....it can be done so that the section can be re-fitted as your daughter grows into it. The odd thing though is that i'm struggling to see many S400's for sale.

Definatly try both 1st the S200 has a faster lock time, the S200 is also easier to cock then the S400 but the S200 is more fiddly to load a pellet probly not a issue for small fingers.

The S200 has a straight down pistol grip and you can slide the trigger blade back its on a dovetail for short trigger pull which even i do and im 6ft 4", the longer trigger reach on the S400 could cause pulled shots.

And if she gets into it, a external Huma Reg for a S200 costs about 85 this can usualy give you 70-80 regulated shots.

The finish on the S400 is vaslty superior though.
