According to the Remington site:
Youth: 20" Barrel, 38 5/8" overall, 6.75 lbs.
Full-size: 24" Barrel, 43 5/8" overall, 7.25 lbs
According to a discussion on TheHighRoad.org, the difference in shooting is 40 fps and almost no difference in energy. The youth model also has a stock that has spacers that can be added to lengthen the stock to any length desired, within reason.

"In a State of Nature, it is true, that a Man of superior Force may beat or rob me; but then it is true, that I am at full Liberty to defend myself, or make Reprisal by Surprize or by Cunning, or by any other way in which I may be superior to him. But in Political Society ... if I attempt to avenge myself, the whole Force of that Society is ready to complete my Ruin."
