Have about $800-1200 to spend without the scope probably just use a t36 I have. Open to just about any suggestions. He likes to shoot and trying to get him interested in something other then video games. Yes
    I have a couple of CZ452's, after a trigger job, will shoot with most of the custom Sporter class rimfires....with top quality ammo.

    While you have him at the range, take a block of soap and shoot it with a .22LR, preferably a hollowpoint. Show him the kind of damage the little .22 can do. Kids need a visual to understand that it will do more than punch paper.

    You will come out better using the Remington 40X, even it the initial cost is slightly more. There are more options available for the 40X ( triggers, scope mounts, stocks....) and easier to come by. Fact is, they shoot pretty well as-is, then you can make upgrades as the youngster gets better at it. When he is ready for a serious upgrade, the 40X can be sold for close to what you paid for it. I don't think you would recover anything close to you investment, going with a Marlin or Savage. JMO
