New England Firearms H&R choke tubes

I am planning on picking up a 20ga pardner for my gf for christmas. I have a 12ga home defense one that I have been very happy with (fun as hell for skeet shooting), but it is smooth bore, and I was wondering about choke tubes for the 20ga. Since the gun is basically an 870 copy, are the tubes the same as well? I can get Remington ones for ~$15/ea, and the H&R are ~$30/ea.

Also thoughts on 21" vs 26" barrel? She is rather small, which is why I am wanting the smaller gun. I might even get the youth one if I can find it. She would be shooting skeet mostly, and possibly deer hunting.

I've always considered buying a shotgun as something pretty personal. Unless you've been shooting with someone for a while, it's difficult to second guess what gun would suite them best.

You may want to rethink a gun that's good for Skeet and deer -- it may not be well suited for either.

I don't know about the pardner pump, but my NEF Pardner 10ga single-shot uses Browning choke tubes.

Yep, the Pardner Pump uses the Browning Invector choke tube. As a point of reference, Briley is a good starting point for choke tube compatibility.

Great thank's for the reference, those are also around $15 on midway. As for the buying aspect, a shotgun isn't something she would ever buy, but I think she would really enjoy having her own. It won't be a constant use gun like some of mine are, so for the price I think it would be good. And even if she hates how it shoots, I'm not out too much money and have a 20ga in my collection
