The Remington 870 Express Youth Combo 20 Gauge w/20" Rifled and 21" Vent Rib Barrel Shotgun is a perfect fit for the smaller shooter year round. Designed with the same durability and reliability as the legendary 870 Wingmaster, this quick-pointing 20 gauge provides rifle-like accuracy with its 20'' fully rifled barrel with rifle sights. The 21'' vent rib Rem Choke barrel with Modified choke tube and bead sight is perfect for small game hunting or clay target shooting. This pump action comes with 3" chamber, 4 + 1 capacity, and synthetic stock. Color: Matte black.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GunGuru13 Excellent for novice
I am a firm believer in a hunter's first shotgun needing to be pump action (I doubt many disagree with me) because the novice needs to learn to slow down and control his aim. The second reason I love this is because it's a Remington and these systems allow the new hunter to become an expert in repair and maintenance of weapons. The final reason I especially like this system is because it is chambered for 3" shells; this means it can fire the less powerful 2 3/4" shell and the powerful 3" shell, meaning a hunter can go from target shooting to taking down ducks with the same gun.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner, hope you got your answer. This gun has a 13" length of pull. I highly recommend either this gun or the standard Remington 870 Express Youth as a first gun (I would get this if you plan on taking the youngster hunting with slugs as this has a rifled barrel included).
