I too have grandchildren,and looked for the safest singleshot 22 I could find..As far as I am concerned it has to be the #6 Improved..Looks like the original #6 but was made for safety..When it is at full cock it will NOT accept a cartridge into the chamber..It has a half cock feature that renders it much safer than the older gun.After it is loaded and the action is closed,only then can it be fully cocked and ready to fire..Not knowing the ages of your little ones it might not be fully neccesary but mine are yet to shoot..The information can be found on page 76 in Frank de Haas book "Single Shot Rifles and Actions."Not readily available,but I have mine and I happen to know of another for sale..If interested e Mail me for the information..modoc

Thanks for the tip Modoc, but since I've already got this #4 project rifle, I'll finish it for her!

mm93, I am doing a #4 for my freinds son. I am putting a Green Moutain octagon barrel on it as it had no barrel before. I am also relining my Dad's #4 also. They are nice little guns. moodyholler

They sure are! I like Rollers, and the #4 is a neat miniature, unlike some other little Rems. My favorite of the little ones is the #2, but they're too spendy for the little gal!
Sure saw some spendy Rollers at the show this weekend!
