Single Shot Youth Shotgun 20 Gauge
Choosing a first shotgun is an important decision that has the potential to make or break a youth’s future enjoyment of the shooting sports. Start them with a .410 and they may enjoy the lack of recoil, but they could very well be frustrated by the limited shot pattern and increased misses. Put a 12 gauge into their hands right off the bat and you run the chance that they’ll find the recoil intimidating, if not painful, and they’ll be put off of shotgun hunting for good. Enter the 20 gauge Youth Single Shot Shotgun.
Our Youth Single Shot Shotgun is the perfect fit for youngsters (or smaller framed adults) who are ready to take the hunt to the fields and the woods. Like our other youth models, this shotgun is built to the same exacting standards as its larger counterpart. The key difference lies with the buttstock being 1” shorter to make a length of pull of 13” from the end of the buttstock to the trigger.
It shares the same action and quality of materials as our other single shots, including the ambidextrous locking lever setup that blocks hammer contact with the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled, and prevents the action from breaking or closing when the hammer is cocked for an extra layer of safety.
The end of the blued steel barrel is threaded for removable chokes to alter the pattern and range of the shotgun so it can used effectively in a wide variety of hunting. It ships with a Modified Choke using Rem-Choke style threads which delivers a versatile shooting pattern for shooting at 25-45 yards, ideal for squirrels, rabbits, pigeons, doves, partridges, grouse, pheasant and wild flushing quail at medium range. Additional chokes are widely available at your favorite shooting sports establishment.
This shotgun is sure to put on a show for many years, and start off a younger shooter on the right track with the right equipment built to their specifications.
