Stoeger M2000?

3 posts in this topic

I am looking to buy a mid-priced semi-auto shotgun that shoots 3 inch load. The Stoeger M2000 runs for about 380 bucks which is about what I'm looking to spend. What do you Stoeger owners have to say about this gun or does anyone else have another suggestion? I hunt waterfowl and pheasant.

Springerguy:

Welcome to FM! Glad to have you aboard.

If you use the search option on the top of the forum, and look up what Borch, Kodiak, and myself have had to say about the gun along with many others, I think you'll have some good reads.

In summary, I really like the gun. Lightweight, good balance considering the value. As with the Benelli's, magnum loads in 3" or 3.5" in the SBE's case will hurt a bit. It's the price you pay for the lightweight. Recoil isn't terrible, and in hunting situations goes unfelt.

I use mine with the cant. rifled barrel for deer hunting, and as a backup turkey gun. I'll also try it out for pheasants/grouse this year. Make sure to pattern. Center of my pattern at 40 yards is a few inches left.

Thanks for posting, we look forward to hearing how it works for you!

Joel

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
