New Shotgun

Picked up a new Stoeger M3000 in Max 5 Camo last week.

Had it to the range twice and ran 6 boxes thru it. Lotta bang for the buck at just $549.

It's the poor mans Benelli. It uses the same inertial action as the 3 times more expensive Benelli's.

I really like this gun. It's a half a pound lighter than my 870 but feels even lighter than that.

Dove season is just 5 weeks away and can't wait to bag some limits with the new machine.

Nice buy! Although I've never shot a Stoeger I know they took over production/patent with the Beretta .40 Cougar. I had a Cougar and loved it. (Sold it a few years back, unfortunately.)

The Stoger and TriStar semi autos have been really great budget guns. They have become really popular with the 3 gun shooters. All these Turkish guns coming in lately have been great. I love my Zenith MP5 actually is better quality than my real HK94.

I did quite a bit of research on the Stoeger before I bought mine. One article was saying that Stoeger actually developed the inertial system many years ago. When Benelli bought Stoeger they liked their inertial system so much that they began using it on their shot guns.

It's a great system. Something like only 5 moving parts. They employed the KISS method in their design... keep it simple stupid. Very easy to field strip for cleaning and re-assembly. I love simple. Perhaps this is why I love my V-650 so much. No magic, just a simple design that works great and lasts a long time.

Nothing to do with shotguns but the KISS principle was what I loved most about the 1972 Suzuki T-500J two stroke twin I bought new while living in England. It was simple and reliable and just plain worked mile after mile after mile. I wish I still had it. Oh well.
