    I have a Stoeger M3500 and love it. I can't recall any issues with anything I put through it. Bargain for sure.

    I also have a Tristar OU 12 gauge courtesy of Ducks Unlimited a couple years ago. I dont think I would have bought one on my own but its killed many pheasant and sporting clays without issue! I'm a little spoiled now by my Silver Pigeon 12 and 28ga Franchi Instinct so it doesn't get much work any more though...

    You ever run many light loads through that stoeger?

    When I first got it I ran a variety of 2 3/4 up to 3 1/2. I've not run anything light in it since and that was 6 or 8 years ago. I don't recall any issues. It's what I use for waterfowl, so it's usually fed high brass 3 or 3 1/2" stuff.

    I’ve heard the same thing they’re basically a benelli. Never heard anything bad about them really

    I would be willing to bet that if you ask anyone out there that spent the extra cash on a gun if they regret it, you will find very few that will say that they do.

    I looked at both Stoeger and Yildiz a couple of years ago when I was looking for a modest-priced O/U. I ended up going with Yildiz (available only at Academy Sports) due to what I considered a better fit and feel. The wood on the Yildiz was better, and it was quite a bit lighter. I ended up buying a 20 gauge and liked it so much that I bought a matching 12 the next year. I have shot them both quite a bit on both game and sporting clays, and they have performed well.

    A Stoeger will get the job done. Have had no problems with mine. Remember even the high dollar gun companies have a service department for a reason. Also ask yourself, how many guys do you know, that will actually admit they overspent on any firearm? "You're right honey, I spent too much money for that and should have bought the cheaper one." Yeah right!

    After a lot of reading and debating I decided against the stoeger. Read about some people having extraction problems with low brass.
    Today I drove to kygun and picked up a Weatherby Element. Not got to put any rounds through it yet but it feels good in the hand, and got it for under 600.

    I have a 12ga. Over/under, it shoots good and very reliable. It’s killed plenty of clay pigeons and also a few rabbits.
