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.

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

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
