    I'm looking around to buy another shotgun. Don't really wana go over $600. I know most of yal are laughing but between bills and LIFE, money is spent on other stuff. But my brother has a stoeger m3500 n he likes it. Heard good things about it. Don't wana Mossberg for sum reason. Just let me know of u see deals or know a good gun. I found a stoeger m2000 apg camo for $450. Thinking on it. I wouldnt be able to shoot 3.5s but I can't now either.

    Stoeger is the best economical auto out there. I'd get the 3500. It shoots all 3 length shells. Dang a mossberg. Wouldn't shoot one if given to me...Junk!!!

    That's good deal. Out of stock now. What is the difference from the m2000 n m3000?

    I've got a camo Stoeger M3500. LOVE IT. shoots 2 3/4 - 3 1/2 no prob. heavy load, light load, you name it. Heck if you wanted you could put all three in at the same time and it will cycle through w/o a problem.

    M3000 is drilled and tapped. M2000 isn't

    M3000 includes a shim kit to adjust drop and cast. M2000 does not

    M3000 includes IC, M, and F chokes. M2000 has C,IC,M,F,XF

    The barrel extension has been changed to increase strength and accuracy.

    Redesigned forend that captures the spring washers. M2000 has loose washers that can fall out

    More ergonomic trigger assembly placement and design

    Redesigned ejector assembly that is pinned into barrel extension, not screwed like the M2000

    Redesigned camming system and locking head, locking head rotates off of a fixed cam pin in the bolt body and has two large locking lugs similar to the M3500 instead of the locking head and three smaller lugs like the M2000.

    M3000 design more reliable and stronger.

    You will NOT be let down by the M3500. My SBEII buddies can't even talk crap about it after shooting it.

    I'm about to put a Kicks high flyer choke in mine also. Buddy has one on his, reach out and touch'em.
