Description:

Lightweight, small, easy to handle with a 3" magnum receiver. This shotgun will deliver 7/8 of an ounce of hello in front of a 20 gauge 3" mag. Kind of makes the phrase "the smaller 20 gauge shotgun" a contradiction. A great defensive weapon that I craved and finally got after an undercover officer showed me his bag of tricks. He liked it's size and the ability to manuever it in hallways and such. I will never ( hope to never, ) have that type of need for it so mine has been a lot of fun to shoot and plink with and the gun has done ok with the clays considering the barrel is short and I am not a trap/skeet shooter. I bought mine many moons ago when they were about 250 bucks so that tells you how long I have had mine since the MSRP is now $445. In peeking at Remington's online catalog; I see they now have a higher capacity, 7 round synthetic 20 gauge. Very cool as my little 870 will take only 4+1 with the plug out. I am adding an Uncle Mikes elastic stock band to carry 5 more rounds. I have a universal shoulder sling for mine that does not require sling swivels mounted on the weapon. It just slides over the stock and then the barrel and I can use the same sling for different long-guns. The youth model is only about 6 pounds empty I believe so carrying the little guy around over your shoulder all day is not bothersome. I have been out of shooting for a while but I see and it makes sense that, there are/would be a large amount of accessories for the 870 line. I picked up a polymer pistol grip for my youth model for $21.00 but there goes my extra shell storage in the buttstock band. Happy and safe shooting.

    I have beenout of the game for a while but I see and it makes sense that, there are/would be a large amount of accessories for the 870 line. I picked up a ploymer piston grip for my youth model for $21.00 but there goes my extra shell storage in the buttstock band.
    Happy and safe shooting.

    A great pump gun for smaller stature persons.
