Default air gun for kids?

I was in the garden with my oldest son (6 years) today and he shot for the second time in his life with a airgun. We used my 1980s BSA Super Meteor, the guns spring in old and have lost a lot of power so it works fine for a 6 year old.
The targets was empty beer cans at 10 meters. He understod the iron sights and hit the cans now and then. The gun was resting on a table, I taught him to aim and then touch the trigger and pull it.

The only problem was the long rifle stock. When I was young I had a Gamo cadet with a junior stock, Ive searched but its gone.
His mother came and saw the shooting and she agreed to let me buy a junior stocked airgun for the boy (only to use under my supervision)

The time to act and order a gun is now before she realises what she done

What is your choice? It has to be a wooden stock, no plastic.
