FP-1A 3/4" Compact FoxPup 4X-24 scope _____ scaled down for youth model 22's
The FoxPup mini-scope is a scaled down version of our famous WolfPup scope.
FoxPups are made for youth size 22 rifles such as the beautiful little Keystone Chipmunk and Cricket rifles that have 11-inch trigger pull.
Up until now, no scaled down 3/4" tube high quality scope was available for kid's 22's.
A big 1" scope with long eye relief on a youth model .22 is like an elephant sitting on a mouse.
The new little FoxPup is a 1 inch shorter scaled down 3/4" tube 8-1/4" long 4X-24 scope especially made for young shooters firing youth model 22's.
NOTE: FoxPups are Not made for adults! However, some rifles like the model 63A Winchester with a more rearward positioned 3/8" dovetail groove does work well with this scope.
Adults need the 4" eye relief WolfPup scope that works great a 14" trigger pull rifle. However, the FoxPup has a 1-inch shorter tube length than our WolfPup and also has a 3" eye relief for the shorter 11" to 12" trigger pull found on youth scaled down 22 rifles.
The WolfPup has a 4" eye relief versus the FoxPup's 3" eye relief,
NOTE: If a WolfPup is installed on a 11" trigger pull rifle it requires 8- to 12-year-old young shooters to hold their head so far back they cannot shoot accurately. However, a 2.7 to 3" eye relief on a FoxPup along with a 1" shorter tube length works just fine for a no recoil youth .22 cal. rifle.
When teaching youngsters to shoot it’s much easier to tell them to just aim the dot in the center of the scope picture on what they want to hit.
To hit a rolling can or a running bunny or an elusive squirrel a youngster needs to learn the correct lead, squeeze and shoot tactics. Trying to teach young shooters in the initial beginning stage all about first plane focal, mill dot calculations, holdover and wing drift with ballistics dope is far too demanding for young shooter's minds. Fun with old fashion Plinking ability comes first!
Duplex Dot reticle for teaching youngsters to shoot is much better than a 4-bar crosshair Duplex or Post reticle.
Therefore, FoxPup Compact scopes are only made with a Duplex Dot reticle. So please don't call us and ask us to change it to something different.
We include WP-AB low rings pre-installed, and factory positioned to fit the Keystone's Chipmunk and Cricket 22's. Of course, they can fit the Rascal Marlin and others.
