Mossberg 410 mini youth

Post by aristico » November 30th, 2019, 10:05 pm

Looking to get a couple of these for my daughters to get them shooting and hopefully ready in time for turkey next year.

Two concerns is the 18.5 inch barrel or the fixed modified choke going ro be a problem?

Thanks Tico

I have had one for 3 years. My daughter who is now 11 still hunts with it. She has killed quite a few with it shooting 9's or 9.5's. Furthest shot has been about 30 yards.

I agree with your concerns, I was skeptical of the 18.5 inch barrel and modified choke as well. But the trade off is that the gun is so light and easy to maneuver for even the smallest child. It is literally about like handling a red rider bb gun. And the length of pull is easy for small children. That being said, she is getting bigger and I'm gonna probably move her up to a 20 gauge this year if she can handle one comfortably.

How old are your kids?

I have 2 Mossberg 410’s. Shot ok with full and mod barrels.

But I had Sumtoy thread them for invector plus and the 390 IndianCreek shoots excellent patterns with my 383 Stroker load

How far out would you feel comfortable shooting out to?

Id be open to any suggestions? I have a browning bps in 410 but that's too heavy and too much lop for them so going to sell it and get something more appropriate for them which of course i will have to use every once in a while (-:

45 yards all day long. I have-not had time to shoot any at 50

Couple of thoughts:

If going to buy a 410, the savage with screw in chokes may be a better route to take. Cut the stock down to fit them and put a slip on recoil pad.

Or

Continue on with the mossy and pattern it as is to see what your range is.

IMHO:

Buy a 20 gauge semiautomatic like a Remington 1187. I have one I found for $250 and then put a thumb hole stock on it and a Nikon spur. It is very light shooting with bird shot. If you buy or load some reduced recoil tss, you will legitimately have a 40 yard gun and one that they can grow into shooting full loads as they get older.

My 9 year old daughter has a Franchi Affinity and has no issues shooting it.

How does the modified barrel pattern at 30 and 40 yards?
Looking for a 410 for my little nephew. I hand load so he'll be shooting 9's or 9.5's.

I've never patterned it and counted holes on paper. I know it will tear up a bud light can at 30 yards. The longest shot she has taken has been about 30 yards. Most are around 20.

I would look at the Remington 870 youth model .410 as well. I like mine. 25" full barrel.

my experience did not echo the 30-40 yds. We were comfortable to about 25 then it literally fell apart. I have no doubt our gun would hit one at 35, but I don't know where. We moved up to the 20 with interchangeable chokes. It is much more deadly, however, I shot the 20 with the modified and wasn't impressed
