If you’re looking to get started or help someone get started with shoot- ing sports, Hatsan’s Escort® PS Youth is the perfect beginner’s shotgun.
But that doesn’t mean it lacks fea- tures! This semi-auto shotgun is just the right size for youth and smaller framed shooters. It’s easy to carry, easy to load, and easy to shoot.
The PS Youth is chambered for 3-inch magnum 20 Gauge shells and features Escort’s Fast-Loading and Smart-Valve Piston Systems.
An aircraft-grade aluminum alloy receiver is fully anodized and sports a well-designed 11 mm groove for optics mounts. The chrome-plated 22- inch barrel pulls everything together utilizing a 7 mm, checkered, ventilat- ed, anti-glare rib ending with a classic brass bead.
No matter what game is being tak- en, the Escort PS Youth can handle a variety of shots, including steel (with specific chokes). The multi-choke system includes five chokes (F, IM, M, IC, CYL). A migratory plug can be in- stalled for 2+1 capacity and removed for a complete 4+1 capacity.
The gas-operated PS Youth comes with a synthetic polymer stock and forend with checkered gripping surfaces. For comfort, there is a well-designed rubber recoil TrioPad. In addition, spacers can be added or removed to adjust the length of pull. Stock shims provide adjustment of drop and cast for a better fit. Safety is a significant concern for any fire- arm, so a manual cross-button safety is built in. Mounted sling studs make for easy carry and firing support.
The finish is available in full black, and 3 camo options: Realtree® Timber, Mossy Oak® Bottomland, and Realtree® Max-5. It weighs in at 6 lbs. and 41-inches overall length.
