Start your young shooter with the proper equipment: a shotgun that fits and offers less recoil; now available with the expanded line of Mossberg International SA-28 and SA-20 Bantam (Youth) semi-auto shotguns. The shorter LOP (12.5 inches) and exceptional balance and easy-handling characteristics of these soft-shooting autoloaders make them perfectly-suited for smaller-statured individuals, young and old alike. With optional walnut and synthetic versions and 24-inch barrel lengths, these SA-28 and SA-20 Bantam shotguns are ideal for wingshooting as well as competitive and recreational shooting.
The well-designed gas operating system of the SA-28/SA-20 vents excess gases, reducing recoil for the shooter and lessening stress on components for smooth, reliable operation. Both gauges offer five-round total capacity and are housed in a classically-styled, high gloss-finished walnut stock and forend or durable black synthetic stock and forend. Complementing the wood finish is a polished blue finish on exposed metalwork, while the synthetic versions have matte blue metal finishes. The 24-inch, vent rib barrels have a front bead sight and feature an interchangeable choke tube system. Each version of the SA-28/SA-20 Bantam comes equipped with a Sport Set of choke tubes (Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder and Cylinder) for greater versatility. Other standard features include a handy cross-bolt safety and easy-load elevator.
Enhancing the high gloss-finished walnut is laser-cut checkering on the pistol grip and forend and a complementing high-polish blue finish on the exposed metalwork. The 28 gauge features a 2.75-inch chamber and the 20 gauge has a 3-inch chamber. These handsome, all-purpose field autoloaders deliver on looks and functionality. MSRP: $654
For a lighter weight (.75 lbs less than the walnut version), consider the black synthetic versions with matte blue metal finishes. Like the walnut versions, the 28 gauge features a 2.75-inch chamber and the 20 gauge has a 3-inch chamber. MSRP: $570
A small bore shotgun, that fits the shooter, provides for a more enjoyable day in the field. For more information on the complete line of Mossberg International SA-28 and SA-20 autoloading shotguns, please visit www.mossberg.com.
