Looking for a 20ga Semi for Daughter

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, 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. Once she's older she can use my Benelli SBE2.

Probably pretty close to the Weatherby and Tristar, but check out the Escort magnum. I know they sell them in a youth model. I bought a full sized 20ga a few years back. Very nice quality for the price. I was comparing it to the 11-87 on the same rack, and there was no comparison. The Escort is remarkably lighter than the Rem too... That's what finally sold me, and it was $200 less than the Rem.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

some of those guns are made in Turkey. I would rather buy the Remington.
