Mossberg International SA-20: The Smooth-Cycling Shotgun

 

Mossberg International SA-20 Gas System Design

The Mossberg International SA-20 has several models: the All-Purpose Field, Muddy Girl, Railed, Railed-Pistol Grip, Mossberg SA-20 Bantam, and the Turkey model. This beauty has a gas-operated system to reduce recoil.

Additionally, the excellently designed gas system aids in the reliable and smooth operation of the shotgun as it eases the stress on the SA-20’s components.

When I had the opportunity to shoot this beauty, I was really in awe of how accurate this shotgun is. Scroll on and get to know the Mossberg International SA-20!

The SA-20 feels good on the shoulder and quite easy to handle. Due to its gas-operated system, the shotgun has very low recoil. Although the butt pad is a bit hard, it didn’t really bother me since the recoil is quite low. When I started shooting, it cycled perfectly.

    I love my youth model sa 20 it didnt cycle properly the 1st few times but a heavier shell fixed that also there is a sling that will fit its just a special type its scary accurate and the short barrel allows for great home defense the recoil is so low i dont even think about it anymore ive had it for 3 years still my favorite to shoot definetely worth the price and a great starter gun for kids
