Benelli FTW. Light, handle well, ultra easy to live with. My wife got one of their Legacy line in 20ga, and loves if. She’s 5’2” and the stock was just right out of the box.

I have a Franchi, my Dad gave me for Christmas a long time ago. Nice shotgun.

I have shot a Browning Gold Hunter in 20 ga. I liked it so much, I almost bought one.

I want a stock that I can get shortened for someone much shorter than I am, but can be restored to the original length later as they grow into it. Use is clays to birds,

You can do that with wood stocks, I don't know if you can do it with the plastic versions as the ones I have seen are hollow. It is easy to do with wood stocks. Any gunsmith worth his salt can make dowel holes and then three to four cuts to be glued together as the person grows.

Since you want this for a young person, I suggest that you look for a gas operated action and not a inertia or short recoil operated action. The gas operated, Remington, Tristar, some Charles Daly, will have less recoil than the others.

I could do this with my 28 gauge 1100. Someone was nice enough to give me a smoking deal on 28 gauge reloading equipment . But it's nice to have a warranty. I'll be shooting it until he gets big enough to handle it.

anyone complaining about the O Rings in 1100's or 11-87's has been trying to use some kind of aftermarket O Ring. I have replaced one O-ring in about 25 years and have owned about 10 1100's and 2 11-87's in that time.

I shot a G2 Viper Sporting for about 5 years and was very happy with it. At my club, we have half a dozen people who own them with 2 being regular ATA shooters.


I have to agree. I bought one in 20g for my son and have two stocks for it so he could grow into it. It hasnít hiccuped once.
