Looking for a Semi for Daughter

I posted this in the shotgun forum but figured I'd ask here as well. My 13 year old daughter currently has a 20ga Mossberg 510 Mini Turkey Thug. It's extremely light and packs quite a wallop especially with a 3" shell. I'm interested inpurchasing a 20ga autoloader for her. Was looking at a Weatherby SA-08 Compact, Mossberg SA-20, Remington 11-87 compact or a Tristar Raptor Youth. Looking for one with a receiver that is drilled/tapped for optics. She has killed several turkey with her Mossberg but that was in a blind with it on a fieldpod. Any opinions on the previously mentioned shotguns or recommendations on another. Don't want to break the bank on a high end autoloader for her and not interested in another pump gun.

Franchi!!! IMO the best semi out there for the money. Bought one for my daughters to use, compact model comes with spacers to lengthen the stock (we have now put 2 in).
I bought a sumtoy choke .562. It shoots all shells really well. Fed heavyweights, fed tss, apex. Poa and poi are perfect. I put a champion long bead on it that you have to be down on to see the bead, perfect for kids! I like it myself!!! Out the door for under 800$

I have 3 franchi affinities for my son and I.They're my favorite shotgun but they aren't drilled and tapped.They're also very light and recoil operated so they can punch a little.I started my son at 8 with a TRIstar viper.It was light but functioned and soaked up recoil very well.It did shoot to the left but optics would fix that.

Oh yeah, just recently had a Winchester sx4 in my hand. Very nice! Gas operated too. Would help with kick. Around 800$. They make in the universal model with 24” barrels.

If you can find one the Sa 459 is a great lil gun. My daughters love the pistol grip, making it easier to hold the gun while it is rested on their knee. Thing also is light and is a shooter with TSS and a Sumtoy.

Don't Gobble at me...

There is one in the classified section here.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
