I was 70 lbs til about 8th grade, no joke. A cheap youth model Rem. 870 did the trick very nicely. didn't kick hard at all either.

Mossberg 500 20 Gauge
Still use it and I'm only like 70 lbs.
Very good.
Recoil is not at all bad.

remington 870 20 gauge youth is the best way to go duck loads have little kick a turkey load kicks a little harder but still not bad . or get him a Benelli 20 gauge they have no kick same with there 12 gauges
Hilljacks at there finest.
Too many birds not enough shells.

I remember back when I started, I was sporting a similar youth noel browning bps pump 20 ga. It sure will be very apt for a youngster that age and size. And you do not have to worry about being knocked as it gives just the right knock back. I remember killing a number of rabbits and ducks in as many tries with it. And we have surely been starting with that type of gun ever since.

I had a 20 ga mossburg pump it didn't kick at all and my dad, grandpas, and me have killed plenty of birds with a pump and single shots that with autos, alls an auto does is allow you to do is just throw shots all over, shure they're nice and I'll get one, but there's nothing wrong with a pump.

I watched a 8 year old who was shooting my 1100 skeet loads he did not even blink. If you are overly concerned there is nothing wrong with a 20ga.

check out the SA-20 Mossberg in 20 gauge. It's synthetic black, hasn't jammed yet and is insanely light. Very affordable at 390 imo

I'm 12 now and and am now shooting my own 12ga 870 and shot my dads last year when i was about 9 I got 20ga 870 and it was a bit long but I could shoot all 3 shots fairly fast and killed ducks my 12 ga is a bit long also and I can work it faster than my dad and kill just as many ducks. Plus with the semi auto you have a lot better chance of getting the gin jammed. I say 20ga 870 all the way and working the pump isnt hard even when the guns a bit to long. I learned from my dad and my
Uncle and they know quite a bit.

When i got my first gun at twelve it was a winchester pump 20 gauge, killed my first turkey and plenty of squirell and pheasant, but depending on the build of your son, by 13 i saved money and bought a double barrel 12 gauge because i wanted more of a boomstick in my hands, it all depends on what they want!
