Cool Stoeger rifled barrels are out there

I did a quick Google for "Stoeger 12 ga rifled barrel" and immediately came up with 2 - one in CT for $150. and one at GunsAmerica for $225. You can get 'em if you hunt for 'em.

gfdeputy2 - So a Mossberg pump is a bad fit for you? A fine gun and right in your price range. Sorry you missed out on that Stoeger. On the other hand, I glad wmi found his barrel. Life sort of evens itself out, eh, boys??? By the way, remember: when you're sighting your shotgun in this Fall, do it on a cold morning. And then don't clean your gun until AFTER you tag your deer. You may shoot 3, or 7, but very rarely 10 slugs through that barrel, zeroing in on that sweet spot at 100, or 150yds. You want to keep your gun in the same cold and 'dirty' condition it is in when you take that last perfect 'zeroed' shot. Cleaning your gun after zeroing in might affect that one first shot through a cold barrel on opening day to prevent the clean kill you want. Safe hunting.

Well My Quest is over I purchased a Charles Daly Field Hunter semi auto
I have shot a few boxes & am really impressed with it so far
for a cheap autoloader this thing shoots great just hope it holds up

Thanks HM I hope I do too
Can't afford a $1,200 autoloader right now or even half of that so I knew going in I was not expecting anything great
but for $200.00 Oh my this so far is well worth the money
CD should make a few changes to them though & have more accessories for them but we will have to see
hopefully Ole Tom will be down May 3rd

Wink Good hunting!

Glad your search is over so your hunt can begin! I'm sure you'll do well. Pattern in with a high-end turkey shell then take your time. What you didn't spend on the firearm, spend on the fire power. Buy the best, whenever possible. It will increase your odds to score that tom.
Let us know how you do. Safe hunting!

I got a Benelli M-2, which is what the Stoeger mimics. They as well as Franchi are all part of Berretta. The Stoeger 2000 is made in Turkey, and although it looks like a M-2, the parts are not ineterchangeable, and the Stoeger parts are not machined or polished as well as the M-2. Nor does the Stoeger come with the recoil suppression system of the Benelli. Of course, the price is right, as at around $1300, the Benelli is a big stretch of the pocketbook. Here's a website address to a forum that will give lots of opinions on these guns: Benelli USA Forums - Powered by vBulletin They are sections on here for all those brands and models so you can see what the owners think of them.
