Stoeger semi auto

anyone have any info on the Stoeger 2000 semi auto?? reliability and what not??

i am looking around for a semi auto shotgun. i would really like to get the Benelli M2, but the pricing is a bit much. the Stoeger 2000 semi auto is more in line with my budget. i have the $$ for the M2, but it would clean me out. any info would be appreciated.

They are in the same manufacturing group as Beneli. I don't know who owns who but it looks like they have a very similar if not the same operating system as the Beneli. The fact that it is not gas operated makes me say you should be good. I've heard shotguns with the gas system can get pretty dirty, especially if you don't clean them properly. I wonder what kind of choke system it uses? For half the price of a Beneli it might be a very good buy. If you buy it, let us know how it shoots.

It looks like Benilli and Stoeger are owned by Beretta. The Stoeger uses an alloy (aluminum) receiver and the Benelli a steel receiver. The Benelli has some other features that set them apart from the Stoeger (cryo'd barrel, recoil reducing stock...). The firing mechanisms are very similar but not the same.

What have you heard bad about them? Just curious because I've been thinking about getting an auto before duck season.

some people have told me that Stoeger isn't very reliable, others say it's reliable enough not to worry.

That's what I was thinking you'd hear. I bet they were shooting too light a load. All autos have a minimum load they'll reliably cycle. The Benellis and Stoegers recommend a 3dram 1-1/8 oz shell.

You shouldn't have to break in a shot gun. I would just take it apart make sure all the parts are cleaned and lubed and shoot the crap out of it. Just make sure you clean it on a regular basis and you shouldn't have any problems. Let us know how it shoots.
