I despise the cocking piece on the Cricket and other rimfires. It’s too easy to let it slip while cocking the gun, especially for young shooters. I don’t think those are designed that way for any reason other than cost. They can design and build it without spending any money on a safety.That works.
Which would explain why we still see it on the Cricket. Rimfire ammo. Plus, it may be a good safety training aid for the target audience - young beginning shooters.
If you want to train them on using a safety….having a real safety that works like the rest of the guns out there is probably a good idea.
