Goman:

Welcome to the forums and FishingMinnesota/HotspotOutdoors!

Regarding your question, if you use the search function towards the top of the page, and specifically search for "stoeger" or "M2000", you'll get plenty of good hits.

My experiences were initially fairly good, and now are mixed. For the first year or two, I had used it mostly for slug hunting, and until year two, it had performed flawlessly. During a deer drive, and then while stand hunting, the gun failed to cycle a new shell into the chamber after the first shot.

That same fall and into spring, I realized the vent. rib barrel was slightly bent, and causing the gun to pattern about 6" to the left at 40 yards.

The saving grace of the gun and Stoeger in general, is that they've been a dream to work with. I sent in the gun, and a few short weeks later, they replaced the barrel, as well as worked with the action to prevent jamming and the cycling problem.

The good news, if you're interested in the M2000, is that my bad experiences seem to be the exception to the rule. That, and their customer service and fixing of the firearms seemed great.

We'll see if it continues to be a problem, but from what I've tested thus far, I believe I'll own it for a very long time.

I've had great results with my M2000 thus far. I've had mine for 2 years now and can only recall one jam. In fact I was purposely not tearing the gun down to see how long it woulf take the enertia ssyem to malfuction between cleanings. I put a pile of rounds through it before I had that jam. My modifies choke that came with the gun would not screw in and Stoeger had a new one to me in 3 days. Good customer service.

My brother-n-law bought one last year and he hasn't had a problem with it yet (wet,cold,jams,or dirty). We both hunt from bear, ducks, small games and deer. Thats the only one he uses everytime we go out and i haven't heard a complaint from him. My cousin also bought one too this summer so i guess we shall see cause they are rather pretty new guns. grin.gif

The Steoger is made by Banelli I believe, so it should be a great gun.

I have been using one for the last 2 years the only problems that i have had with it is that it don't like the low shot shells I found out that 1 1/8 works the best i have shot 7/8 and 1 oz shooting clays where you don't need more shots but I was told the benellis are no different,

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
