Stoger shotguns?

Anyone have one and used it? I know several who have bought one, but nobody has shot it yet.


I am thinking about an over-under or a side by side. Thoughts?

From what I understand they are junk. Quality is lacking.

For the money they are fine. Especially if you pick up the over under for 350 or less. The coach gun is a nice piece. Fit and finish won't be quite as nice but overall they are a decent low end shotgun.

Mostly, I would be trap and skeet shooting. I might use it to bird hunt if I ever do that agian. I have an 1100, so this is a secondary shotty. Not for home defence, either, that is covered.

I had a coach gun and prolly shot 1000 shells through it. Various loads and shell lengths. Worked great.

I had a Stoeger side-by-side 10 years ago and didn't have any problems with it but to be honest, I doubt I put more than 10 boxes through it. I shoot a lot of skeet and honestly I don't shoot any better with my O/U than I do with my Remington 1100. The reason I shoot the O/U was so I could save the shells for reloading. If I was in the market for a new shotgun, I would probably buy a Berretta 391 auto.

I bought my Stoeger SxS over 2 months ago. Got in anticipation of dove season. Since then, probably dumped well over 500 rounds through it. Its a great gun for the price, and fun to shoot. I have the version with the dual triggers, which is pretty cool for whenever I feel like letting loose with both barrels. Also, they do have chokes, which can be a plus.

With that said, I will say that for the first few times I took it shooting, it didn't want to break open easily, took some effort at first to get it to function properly. But after the first 2 trips out, it functions great. Also, after firing, the shells don't drop or pop out on there own, so kinda an issue, nut not a big one to me.

Other than that, the shotty hasn't given me any issues, and is probably one of my favorites. Hope this helps,
