I know you're looking to shorten, but that mostly limits you to wooden stocks. If you're dealing with the standard pumps, like the Mossy 500 and the Remmy 870, I believe both of those guns have aftermarket stock kits really available. Others might require some digging, but may be out there.
If you're still open to the idea of getting a new gun, the Tristar Raptor youth models can be had well south of $400, and are getting a decent reputation for budget autoloaders. I would recommend a 20 gauge, which is easy on the shoulder and can do just about anything with modern ammo. The LOP is somewhere in the 13" ballpark, which isn't as obnoxiously short as some of the other youth models out there. I don't think you'll find a better gas gun at that price point, although Mossberg and Weatherby offer competitive autoloaders as well. As With any major purchase, do your research.
