Remington Introduces Full Camo Youth Version of Model 11-87™ Sportsman™ – A Youth Shotgun with Big Features

February 02, 2008

Madison, N.C. – Nothing inspires confidence in young shooters more than hitting their target and shooting a gun designed for adults can make that goal quite difficult. Remington has introduced a new 20-gauge Model 11-87 Sportsman Youth Camo autoloading shotgun for young hunters who want grown-up performance from a gun that fits their build. This more compact, magnum 20-gauge also provides a full featured option for smaller stature adults as well. (Note: The Model 11-87 Sportsman Youth Camo is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers).

This low-recoiling shotgun has all the features that have made the Remington® Model 11-87 a legend in America’s hunting fields, including smooth feeding, absolute reliability and solid construction. The Sportsman Youth Camo will chamber 2 3/4 and 3-inch shotshells and comes with a fast-handling 21-inch vent rib Rem® Choke barrel, supplied with Modified choke tube. The durable, weather-resistant synthetic stock and fore-end and exposed metalwork wear a Mossy Oak® Break-Up® camo finish providing a level of concealment for turkey and waterfowl hunting or for spending an afternoon in the dove field.

The gun’s most important feature is a stock with a 13-inch length of pull that is perfect for young or smaller stature shooters, guaranteeing a more comfortable fit and allowing them to better handle the recoil of stout turkey and waterfowl loads. And with the shorter 21-inch barrel length and reduced weight of 6 ½ pounds, this Model 11-87 provides balance and easy-handling characteristics.

The Model 11-87 Sportsman Youth Camo in 20 gauge will fit young shooters like a glove and increase their chances at bagging that once-in-a-lifetime trophy.
