Look for a new or used 11-87 Sportsman.

Many years ago, when my youngest son was 7 or 8, he wanted to start shooting clay birds at the sportsman's club.

My beloved wife chimed in, and said that she wanted to shoot, also.

So, the next day, I went out and bought an 870 "Yout" (spelling intentional) in 20 ga for the son to use, and an 11-87 "Youth" Sportsman in 20 ga. for the wife.

I found that the Remington 742 and 760 style centerfire rifles have the same stock size/shape as the 20 ga 870/1100/11-87.

I bought a wooden buttstock for the 742 at a gunshow (Showplace Arena) and cut it to fit my (then) small son.
IF memory serves me, I paid $10 or so, for that extra buttstock.

I had to make a buttstock screw that would work on the new 'shortened' stock, and cut a new recoil pad to fit it.

Final thought................ Ya know..... my beloved wife has NEVER fired that 11-87 "Youth" gun!

There's nothing quite like standing on the firing line, stuffing your ramrod down a waiting black hole, slathering your balls with grease, and then having as many as eight nipples.

With regard to reloading:

Benelli M2 20gauge. You won’t regret it. I believe they have a youth stock available too.

Yessir. It's resting comfortably, in the back of the safe.

+1 on the Browning Gold.

I have the Fusion model in both 12 and 20 gauge.
