Check out the Remington 870 Youth Express Deer Gun:


The gun featured at the link above has a 20" rifled barrel (with rifle sights) for slugs. Non-rifled 20" barrels are available for shot shells (which don't pattern well from the rifled barrel). I got my non-rifled barrel from Cabella's.

The price listed on the web site is higher than you should find in the market. I paid less than $300 for mine.

The one I got for the kids is an 870 Youth Express, and cost less than $300 with both bbls. One is a 21", Remchoke, vent rib bbl and one's a 20", Rifle Sighted smoothbore in IC choke. It likes Brennekes.

Try this link for full-size 20 gauge Remington options:


The same combination mentioned by Dave McC above that is availble in the Youth Express is also available in adult/full-size 20 gauge versions, with two different choices of barrel combinations. You will not likely ever have any reason to regret having chosen a Remington.

I have a Mossberg 500 in 20-. No complaints. Good value.
