1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Here's a possible (or at least one of this type). The 99 Plus Micro has an already shortened stock, a recoil reducer, and adjustable rib, and an adjustable length of pull. Starting price likely looks high to you but, but if your Grandson starts shooting, then becomes more interested in the gals, you should be able to get most or all of your purchase price back. ;-) Good luck.

    K80, I would agree with Joe recoil is a major consideration for a youth. SL 900, K80 is buying a gun for a 12YO,, a Hammered gun is Not the suggested action. A hammer sets a kid up for failer,,its a safety issue. That would explain why its no longer produced imo. GL

    The red BT will adjust down to a 13" LOP. It was completely rebuilt. It is like a new gun even replaced the trigger. I'll bet your G/son would love it if he saw the picture. Bulge.

    You might want to consider the CZ 712 ALS. It is a 12 gauge with an adjustable stock. It can be adjusted for length of pull by a push lever adjustment and the soft comb is adjustable for up & down. It also comes with a pretty spongy recoil pad on it. Available in a 26" & 28" barrel with choke tubes. Around $500.00 new. Check the above website.

    Let's get serious. The kid is 12 years old. A 20 gauge 1100 is the only thing I would consider, unless of course you're trying to turn him off for life.

    I'd stay with 12ga 1100 and load down the shells. The lighter 20ga guns can kick more than a 12 that is a little heavier. The 1100's recoil less than Beretta auto's imo.

    SX12 - what? Turn him off??? My 11 year old granddaughter is a normal size girl and is shooting a 32" BT99 micro with Gracoil - she shoots 200-300 full power STS and AA loads a week without any recoil issues at all - she loves the gun and would not go back to her Beretta auto. If she ever decides she just has to have the next step up, the gun will sell for what we paid for it.
