Barrel length isn't the main factor, you have to consider the stock as well. I have an 870 with a 28" barrel and my brothers Stoeger is a 28" barrel. The A300 is shorter than both of those guns. With the Stoeger I have to bring the gun up and out before I bring it into my shoulder otherwise it gets caught in the armpit. With the A300 I bring it right up and it doesn't get caught. I would say it swings and shoulders like a 26" and that is why it only comes in 28" barrel. I should also mention i am 6'3" and even though this gun is adjustable I use the factory settings. Go to a gun shop and handle one!

The stock on the plastic version was very different than my Browning, harder plastic if that makes sense. Also seemed like it may be slick in wet weather. Wood version was pretty but i'd destroy it in a heartbeat. $650 is a great deal.
