I'm think about buying one from academy. $599 with a $75 dollar mail in rebate. Not a fancy gun but seems to be a good gun. I have 2 Boys(13 and 15 y.o.). The old single shot 410 just isn't enough any more. Looking for some reviews on this gun. Any problems with it jamming? Safety issues? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Looked at the 1187 12 gauge as a gift for a friend recently. Was barrel heavy. Don't know about the 20 gauge.

Barrel was ventilated. Kind of heavy. Not bad to me, but might be to heavy for my youngest boy.

Sounds like a good deal but you could probably get a 20ga 870 wingmaster for the same price which might be a more reliable option. I think pumps are better for youth shooters.

The 870 was half the price of 1187. I'm really considering that option.

870 wingmaster is a great step up from the 410, and a great/fun gun.
Will help learn them youngsters to get the bird/critter with the FIRST shot.
Can't beat the 239 deal at Academy right now. I'd get mine a 20ga (already did - they love it!; wifey too)

Fyi, for the 13yo, Winchester makes a 'reduced recoil' load (in 12ga and 20ga) to help him transition , if needed, to bigger caliber...

Be sure you get the Wing Master and not the Express!!
If one of your guys is wrong handed (left handed) then I would recommend the Browning BPS

I have 2 11-87 20 gauges. I really enjoy shooting it and my son loves his. I wish I would have bought one for my daughter. One I have is the premier grade which is high gloss and has some engraving. The other is a camo patterned. Both are great, they point well and shoot anything you feed them. I have Carlson LM chokes in both and that seems to be a great combo. I use mine for upland, dove and, and ducks. I have 3 inch number 6s ready to go for teal season.
