I am looking for a (preferably) mossberg 500 or remington 870. I would like a youth size stock, but most I see are 20 gauge.

Can a 20 gauge youth stock fit on a 12 gauge?

Does a mossberg or remington youth in 12 gauge and a 22" barrel exist?

Thanks!

Mossberg has a 12ga bantam model with a 24" barrel. Mossberg item# 52132

At 20ga stock will not fit a 12ga and visa versa. You can pick up an 870 or 500 and buy a youth stock from hogue or another company. That way you can swap out stocks if needed.

Most definitely check out the Hogue stocks.

Hogue is $70. High.

The 24" youth mossberg is wood. Which is "better" for softer recoil synthetic or wood?

Hogue says 12" LOP. What is the standard?

Thanks everyone!

14" is the standard IIRC. I would think the wood stock would be better for recoil seeing the would stock would weigh a tad more than the synthetic.

For a SD gun it's better to have a 12" stock, easier to swing up hug and control muzzle tip no matter how big you are. I have a Bantam 12" on one 500 20 ga. and a 12" Hogue on my 590 12 ga. What a difference these shorter stocks make from a 14".

I have Remington Factory Youth Stocks on all of my 12 Gauge 870s. I tried the 12 inch LOP Hogue ShortStock, but it was too short :).

Even though I am 6'1" 240 with a 37 inch sleeve length, I like the 13 inch LOP of the Youth stock better than the 14 inch LOP standard stock. When using a squared up shooting stance with the stock pressed against the pec muscle/chest area, when wearing heavy clothing in the wintertime, when your shotgun might be used in an emergency by your smaller stature spouse or children, for a slightly more compact package when maneuvering in tight spaces, I think the shorter stock works better.

Get one, try it, you will probably like it.

Just my .02,
