    HI folks, I have a youth model 500 (20g) that my kids and lady use. I'd like to have a full-size stock for it (I need an extra adult shotgun for a sporting clays outing). Does anyone know if it's simple as buying something like this? http://www.gunbroker.com/item/627852462

    Thanks!

    Nice, thanks!
    I did realize that it came with a pair of "spacers" that will make the stock longer. I may try those first, but I can't tell if they would be the same length as an adult stock.

    yes, the spacers should do the trick, too.

    Yep as simple as that! This Maverick 88 started out as a PGO because that was the only version I could find at the time. Picked up the stock at a gun show and it was an unbelievably easy and quick installation.

    Don't buy a stock for a 12 gauge and expect it to fit properly on a 20. They are different part numbers for a reason.

    Okay I'm not an acronym person. What does PGO mean? I googled it and the Urban Dictionary popped up with a definition. Doubt it was what you meant.

    Pistol Grip Only. A long time ago I thought it referred to Pump Gun Only. :oops:

    Yep, Pistol Grip Only. At the time I bought mine it was relatively easy to find and was priced about $30 less than a full synthetic stock model.

    Well, I happened upon a deal for a pair of older 1100s, so I guess I don't need a fullsize 20 anymore :p Thanks for the advice folks.
