If you’re looking to get started or help someone with shooting sports, Hatsan’s ESCORT PS Youth is the perfect beginner’s shotgun. But that doesn’t mean it lacks features! The PS Youth features Hatsan’s FAST Loading System and SMART Valve Piston technologies. The FAST Loading System enables faster and easier loading with one hand and without the need to change shooting positions. The loading switch acts as both a carrier latch release for loading and the bolt release when the bolt is locked back. The gun’s SMART Valve Piston will cycle 7/8 oz to 2 oz magnum loads in 2 ¾” and 3” magnum rounds, credited to its self-regulating design. The patented design is so reliable that one can mix heavy and light loads in the same magazine without a hiccup.
The PS Youth is available in 20-gauge and .410 caliber with 3” magnum chamber. The 22” proof-tested, oxidation resistant, chrome-plated, steel barrel allows for shot or slugs. A multi-choke system is included – F, IM, M, IC, CYL. The PS is built with an aircraft alloy receiver with 11mm groove for scope mounts. Mounted above the barrel is a 7mm, checkered, and ventilated anti-glare, raised rib with a brass bead front sight.
Built with a rugged synthetic stock and forend, for strength and durability, the PS Youth has checkered grip surfaces for better feel and control. Its stock shims allow for adjustment of drop and cast, for a better fit. The tube magazine holds 4+1 rounds or 2+1 with the migratory plug installed, along with a magazine cut-off system for single shot. The PS Youth also includes mounted sling studs and a manual cross-button trigger safety.
This all popular semi-auto shotgun is available in black synthetic, RealTree Timber, Mossy Oak Bottomlands, or RealTree MAX-5 camo patterns. The ESCORT PS Youth is just the right size for youth and smaller framed shooters. It’s easy to carry, easy to load, and easy to shoot.
