    I'm looking for inputs on purchasing a .410 semi-auto or pump shotgun for my mother, who is elderly and has some problems handling recoil. Given her size, I'm thinking a youth model may be easier for her to use. I don't want to break the bank, would like a 5+ round capacity, and be in the 18-20" barrel length size.

    Primary purpose would be for self defense.

    I am not sure if anyone makes a 410 auto loader any more. Remington use to make a model 1148 and you should be able to buy a real nice used one for $500.00

    Saiga makes a semi auto one. Around $350. Basically an AK platform, comes in various calibers. Also I saw one that looks like an AR that's also available in 12 gauge, not sure about .410

    Don't they have some wheel guns out now? When I get a chance I'll do a little searching.

    Looks a bit bulky???

    I keep on pushing the mossber .20 ga youth model. With light loads, ain't bad.
    keep us posted.

    Yeah, I was looking at the Mossberg 505 in 20ga today, with an 18.5" barrel. Not bad at all.

    Mossberg makes a .410 pump for less than $300. That is the route I would go. Remington still makes the 1100 in .410, but it runs $1000+ I believe.

    consider the winchester 410 lever. much easier to figure out than a pump. looks just like a model 94 30-30. simple design. short bbl, fast swing.

    mossberg has a nice little .410 pump youth model. get that and have the barrel magnaported. The shotgun costs aroun 350 NIB and you can send the barrel off to magnaport for around 120 bucks maybe less.

    When doen itll be a 500 dollar rig with zero recoil even with 3" magnums.

    Well first off the 1100 is an auto not a pump and like most 410's is going to be more costly than the same gun in 12ga.

    The Saiga (ak47 type platform) would be a little tough to manage being magazine fed and the Safir or AR upper shotguns are some what ammo sensitive and still a little more complicated than a pump

    The lever action winchester is a bit tough to load especially for an elderly person

    I believe JLA has the only real option.

    Mossberg 500 HS410. 6 shot, 18.5", standard buttstock with a vertical
    grip on the pump. They also make the persuader---pistol grip with standard
    pump.

    Mossberg used to make a 410 home defense pump with the end of the
    barrel belled to 12 gauge diameter----served no purpose other than visual
    intimidation. Might find one of those on the used market.

    Picking a gun for someone else isn't usually a good idea! All guns have recoil when fired, even the .22. The lighter the gun, the more you feel the recoil! The heavier the load, the more you feel the recoil! If at all possible you need to get your mother to a place where she can shoot. Let her decide what level of recoil is best for her.

    She actually decided that she didn't want to get a shotgun. She's going to keep her S&W MP 15-22 and use it. She's been to the range with it and at 10 yards kept all her rounds in an area about the size of my fist.

    I was going to suggest a .22 Mag revolver. Lots of noise, big muzzle flash, and a really screaming bullet, with out much recoil.

    Nah, the Remington is a semi-auto. Still a steep price though.

    Well, it's the only .22 mag pistol I own at the moment, but not the only .22 mag in the house! Though that little NAA is small, I still would not want to get shot with it!

    Me either. Might get a 3rd degree burn by the muzzle flash adding insult to injury.
