I gave my daughter an 870 Youth model for Christmas two years ago. She's 9 and killed her first dove and duck with it this year. I only let her use it as a single shot for now. The action is way too stiff for her to cycle. Also, the magazine follower sticks out too far into the loading port--it won't even let the gate clear as it sits.

It really needs some action work (it cycles but the initial unlock is hard) and the follower should be replaced. But its a pretty decent single shot.
