Has she shot this gun? With shotguns, your eye is the "rear sight", so how the gun fits you determines where it hits. And I bet what fits you doesn't fit her in an identical manner. Please don't take this the wrong way, but what's important is how it fits her, and therefore how it shoots for her, and with all due respect, but in this case, it doesn't matter how this gun shoots for anyone else, you included. I don't know how much it would cost to have this gun fitted to her, but it might be an option you may need to consider. And for what it's worth, the straight grip shotguns I have shot, with one exception, all shot dead on. The exception shot low for me. But this being a matter of fit, you, your wife, and any one of us here could go out on the same day and shoot the same gun, and the gun is liable to shoot to three different POIs for the three shooters. I'd take her shooting if I were you and just see how she likes it and how it shoots for her, cause you and I and everyone else here just don't matter in this.
