Frequently Asked Questions

IS MY CRICKETT™ MISSING A SCREW?

Many of our customers call us to ask about a “missing screw” in their new synthetic Crickett™.

The Crickett™ rifle has only one take-down screw located 1.5″ in front of the trigger guard.

The other two “holes” in the forend and buttstock are actually molded in to accept swivel studs.

Gen 2 Crickett™ rifles come standard with these swivel studs already installed.

Any rings that will attach to a 3/8″ dovetail scope mount will work.

The upgraded Crickettinny rail will also accept any Picatinny style rings.

What is the best scope for a Crickett™ or Chipmunk™?

The Crickett™ scope is a 4×32 fixed power scope with a mil dot retical pattern.  Many different scopes will work however the small tube matched with a short eye relief makes the Crickett™ scope a perfect match.

Is the Crickett™ scope mount required to put a scope on the Crickett™ or Chipmunk™?

Yes, our receivers are drilled and tapped to accept our Crickett™ scope mount or Crickettinny Rail.

 

 

Are the stocks drilled for sling studs?

All Gen 2 Cricketts™ and Chipmunks™ now come with swivel studs installed (Barracuda and EX not included)

If you have a Gen 1 Crickett™ or Chipmunk™ wooden model the stock is not pre-drilled. You will have to pre-drill the holes to install swivel studs

If you have a Gen 1 Synthetic Crickett™ your stock already had the holes formed in the manufacturing process.
