first off pardon the ignorance.

I was at a gunshop near SF sometime ao and saw this used shotgun for less than 300 . Nothing stands out from it being any other mossberg but it was just smaller..definitely not a 12 ga

I cant remember the name of the store and I looked in mossberg's and remy's site but still could not find it.

Yep. Mossberg calls their youth models Bantam.

You might be taking about the 410 pump from Mossberg.

if the barrel remains the same 18.5 as most home defense shotties, do they just shave the stock to make it smaller?

It was probably the .410 frame (500e) those are just a shrunken down version, probably in 'Cruiser' format. Sure would be fun to have one for camping!

Some of those other super small ones use an 18.5" vent rib bbl, 3 shot tube, half-sized forend, and a stock with something like a 10" LOP. Maybe not the best for an adult to shoot 50 yards, but it's a pump gun the size of a 10/22.
