Shot gun for my Daughter

My daughter shoots a 410 single shot shotgun for the last two years. She is ready to move up to a 20 gage. I was looking at the Beretta Urika model in an automatic. I know that the youth model butt stock is shorter but what I was wondering is when she out grows the gun can a person purchase a larger butt stock so you would not have to take a loss on the gun to purchase another one. This is an expensive investment. My daughter is very small and I think this would be a good gun for her. Any suggestions
Thanks Pappy

quote :
The Al391 Urika's select walnut stock is carefully fitted to the receiver for seamless wood-to-metal fit, giving it an appearance comparable to the most prestigious shotguns. A lengthened, radiused pistol grip, ergonomic comb and fine checkering ensure comfort and security for all hand sizes, as well as correct finger position on the trigger. The semi-gloss finish highlights the grain of the walnut wood, and waterproofing guarantees protection against harsh hunting conditions. A unique, simple system allows the length of the stock to be quickly adjusted using interchangeable recoil pads. Shooters can vary stock drop and cast to create a perfect match between gun and shooter. The spacers supplied with the gun can be used both for cast off and cast on. (end quote)

My guess is yes. However manufactures change models around frequently in the course of a few years. If you are serious about going for the longer LOP stock, I would order it from Beretta or a Beretta dealer around the time that you get the gun. Trying to find the stock after it has gone out of production is a big hassle.

You might also consider Franchi, they have some semi-auto options that might work like the 48 AL.

You know Pappy, one day you may be a Grand-Pappy and you will all ready have a .20 g. for the grandkids Thumbs up . My first shotgun was handed down through our family. It was bought before WW I. It is still making the rounds.
