Anyone shoot this gun? I can get on in very good condition for $200..All the specs are exactly what I want and it beats the other gun I was considering (Franchi Afiinity) by over $500...Thoughts?

Thanks,

VC

I shoot the 3500 (newer version) and love it. I've heard of some cycling problems with the 2000 but each gun is different. I would want to know why the seller is getting rid of it.

Light loads are not their friend! As long as you shoot at least 1 1/8 oz shot you should be fine! Keep it clean and in good working condition!

The firing pin doesnt hit hard enough on mine. I sent it back to Stoeger to get it repared and it came back and the problem was not resolved. Still clicks about half the time I pull the trigger so now its sitting in the corner and Im back to my Remington and Mossberg

I had some issues early on with the firing pin light striking the primer. I dont think it was an issue with the firing pin so much as it was the bolt not seating properly. It has since been a fairly reliable gun. I have not had a problem with it cycling light loads. I keep it very clean and always run it dry, any bit of oil seems to make it sluggish in cold weather.

Mine didnt cycle light loads till I pumped about 100 high velocity shells through it and some 3" mags. Beautiful gun

I have killed hundreds of ducks and dove with mine and probably put a thousand rounds through it (guess my % isn't real good, lol) I have only experienced I FTF in all the rounds I have fired.

I love mine!

I would like to have a Venci, but maybe later.

Get the Franchi.  The Stoeger isn't bad but there are way better options and the Affinity is possibly the best option for under $750.  The Affinity is basically a rebranded Benelli M1 and is made in the Benellli plant in Urbino.
