I should have been more clear, the Upland version is the one I like. Sized to a 20ga with a straight stock.
A slug barrel with iron sights would be nice to have and they seem to be more common than other barrels in the 870 20 ga.
Factory butt pads spells 'ouch my shoulder' and a limbsaver bolt on recoil pad would make the 870 a nice gun that most anyone can handle.
Double +1 on your reasoning. No offense intended, just curious.
One thing to be aware of though, is there is little drop in the stock. If he has a long neck or needs more drop (like I do) then I'd look at the Remington/Beretta/Benelli lineup, as they tend to have more drop from the factory than the Browning/Winchester/FN/Mossberg lines...
Sir, I appreciate the reply. I am open budget-wise. My intention is to "buy one and be done", something he'll use, keep, and pass to his son or daughter.
Well alrighty then. Get him anything that's been suggested above. Personally, I would suggest a standard weight 20 ga. 1100 modded as necessary to fit.
You are doing the right thing.
With a rifled barreI and slugs, I expect it to fill a similar role to a large bore PCC. There are Lyman molds available that can cast slugs for cheap.
I’m going to look for a used Remington 870 wingmaster or pre-magazine dimple express for mine.
I have a friend who is slightly built and short. Shoots this and likes it.
