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,

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
