When handguns are mentioned, everybody assumes a semi-automatic or revolver is being discussed. The Cricket Bolt Action Pistol doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. It is a great plinking pistol, perfect for introducing kids to proper safety, maintenance, and handling of a small firearm.
Benefits of a Bolt Action
Bolt action firearms are mechanically very simple, which leads to a greater degree of reliability than a semi-automatic. Single shots such as the Cricket pistol are even more reliable, as there’s no magazine or springs that can possibly be damaged.
This action is simple and easy to learn how to use, and anybody who’s ever seen an action film has likely seen a bolt action in motion. This simplicity of form makes cleaning and maintenance much easier and less complicated. Plus, a bolt action can be taken out in all weather conditions, given only basic care, and still work reliably.
Bolt actions aren’t limited in the type of ammunition you use in it. As long as the ammo is the correct caliber, you’ll do fine. While there is some debate on the matter, bolt actions have long been held to be very accurate as a matter of course. A bolt action pistol is no different.
