The Skinny: With its extra-long "EZ-reach" forearm and short barrel, the featherweight Super Bantam is small enough for very young kids to handle (keep the loads light). Even better, it can grow with them, because an included stock spacer lets you change the length of pull from 12 to 13 inches. Like all Mossbergs, the Super Bantam has a top safety. And like all 500s, it is not a thing of beauty. It is, however, reliable, smartly designed, and very nicely priced.
