    I'm looking for a cheap semi-auto shotgun im 16 and theres just not lots of cash flow so im looking to keep it under 600 and i want it in camo any suggestions? Right now it looks like im going to get the Stoeger 3000. This gun will be used only for ducks and geese.

    I got my Remington 11-87 for about $650 and I like it enough! I may trade it and buy a used Beretta later on but for now it does the job!

      Not a bad choice under the circumstances, I have not shot this model but I understand it is an improvement over the Stoeger 2000. Go with the 28 inch barrel (muzzel blast) when you hunt with others, and keep it clean! Good luck and let us know how you fair.

          I have a m2000. I bought it used so most of the problems were caused by the previous owner. When I first got it the choke tube was stuck in the barrel. Did some research and it looks like the crappy factory chokes that come with the gun cant handle heavy magnum load well. So Id change all the choke tubes out with Carlsons beforehand. Gun worked great till the weather got cold then Id get light firing pin strikes but they were always on my second shot. The guy before me had it greased up good with the nastiest thickest black grease you will ever see. I thought that might be the problem so I took the bolt and the trigger mechanism completely apart and gave them a good scrub down. Nope that didn't do it. Broke down and took it to a gunsmith. He said the spring that controlled the mechanism that fed the next round was warn out and dragging. Apparently Stoeger dosnt make the spring for the 2000 anymore so he had to use one from a bennelli which ended up working fine. Has not given me a problem since but its only been a month or so and its been a warm winter Ive only had it out in the bitter cold once. In short that gun was a pain in my a$$ but if it works fine for me from now on it will be worth it. I know a lot of guys who love there stoegers so...

              Thanks, all the reviews on the 2000 have been pretty poor. I already have 2 pumps a mossberg 500 with both barrels and a 870 with both barrels. just looking for something for duck hunting and the 500 is my deer gun. the 870 ive had problems with before not cycling the shells missed out on a few geese because of it and it rust to bad to be by the water all the time.
              thanks again

                Hey, i agree with Ga Hunter about the 11-87. Its a great gun. Comes in 20 and 12, also comes in a few types of camo. I purchased mine in New jersey for about 700 and have used it for all my needs. Deer geese ducks pheasants quail crow turkey etc.

                  I'm buying your choice. You might be able to save a little money camo-ing the gun yourself...dunno.

                      For under $600 you can get really good stuff. Do you want it new or used? Used you can find good Winchesters or Remington, or even a good old reliable Charles Daly. New there's some Mossbergs out there I think for 400 give or take and maybe even a Remington for 500 maybe less. Your lucky I'm looking for a semi auto 12 gauge for under $200 found a couple things actually just gotta look(;

                        Keep saving your money and buy yourself a nicer gun that will last you a lifetime like a Browning, Beretta, and Benelli.

                          I wouldn’t spend that much on a 10/22 but I might on a bolt gun. For that kind of money I expect some style to go with it, of the Cooper or Annie level....
