Only thing I have heard is they use benelli parts don't know if it is true or not?
I do know the one I shouldered is lighter then my Mossberg 835 pump

I have also heard from a few local gunsmiths that they do use Benelli parts. I shouldered a 12 ga. pump a couple of weeks ago that felt good but looked cheap. Cost with mail rebate ($50) $325. It came with 2 barrels and all the chokes.

Thumbs up Stoeger 2000

I use a 2000 for deer (most recent buck is posted in the Trophy Room on this site), pheasants, turkey, doves, rabbit, and my freezer is full.

Stoeger is, in fact, a Benelli/Beretta product, manufactured in Turkey, not China. It is light, reliable, takes on all kinds of weather and is not expensive.

I keep one barrel rigged with a turkey choke, one barrel I use with a skeet choke for pheasant, and I use the cantilevered barrel for deer. I keep a Tasco ProPoint Red Dot permanently mounted on that fully rifled barrel, which accepts Weaver-type mounts.

You cannot tap the receiver of the 2000. You will need to get the cantilevered barrel - it will run in the $225.00 range. I believe that barrel is now discontinued, so act fast if you want one. I also have a (Belgian) Browning Light 12, a Browning Auto 5, a Benelli M3, and an Aya 20 ga. - all great guns.

I recommend the Stoeger 2000: it is a workhorse, no nonsense hunting gun. Safe and productive hunting, brothers.

Stoeger is what I use for turkeys, doves, waterfowl and have been pleased with it. Still a little pissed they do not make a rifled slug barrel for it. I know they had manufacture issues but still not making one is stupid.
