If I was going to get a brand new 10/22 off the shelf for a kid I'd do this:

Get a plain blued 10/22 and take off the 18" factory barrel and stock.

Butler Creek makes a 16" carbon fiber, stainless steel lined, standard contour barrel with iron sights.

Get this barrel. It and a synthetic stock cut the weight of the weapon in half.

I'd get either the Butler Creek sporter synthetic stock, or the Houge overmoulded stock. I have the Butler Creek and it's shape is just about perfect.

Put a 4x40mm scope with low mounts on the weapon.

A shooter's sling and at least 2 to 4 spare mags and you're set to go. Mag pouches designed for revolver speedloaders work great with 10/22 mags.
