Stoeger M2000?

Recommended Posts

Springer Man

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.

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!

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.

      north metro lake had consistent 2-2.5" yesterday around noon. Headed back tonight to check a couple  more lakes.  It would be nice to hit 4-5" before warm weather sets in  later this week

      Me and my wife are looking for a skid house to buy that is already on  or by Mille Lacs and we  will move it to the resort of our choosing. Looking for a 10x20 open to smaller and open to bigger. If have any leads on any or have one you'd like to get rid of let me know. Thanks
