Oh I know. Same here. It only happens with BCs. How much you asking and what camo pattern? I love mine. It's a horse.

A little update on my ongoing issues with my 3500. Opening day of early goose the gun stopped firing again and was just giving a light primer strike. I emailed them and asked for the service manager to call which he did. He was extremely nice and said he was sending me a new gun and I had suffered enough with this one for the last 4 years. Finally! So I'll give this new one a go but if I get one light strike, it'll be out the door for something else!

I ditched mine. Ended up going back to a pump. Browning bps has treated me well so far. Hope yours works out for you.

I've decided to do the same thing. Selling the new one and will be going back to a pump. I'll be buying a Benelli Supernova this weekend. Just don't trust a Stoeger anymore and will never own one again! I'd like to have a gun I can hand down to my son and that would definitely not happen with the m3500.

I certainly wouldn't recommend that advice to anyone.

I was thinking the same thing about that advice! Didn't matter what shell I was shooting, it had the same issues.

My recommendation was not about your gun but about Hevi~anything. I'm sure a competent gun smith could make your gun serviceable but the Hevi stuff has no solution to anything IMHO except relieving you of a lot more money................

Remoil was giving my inertia guns a fit below 25 degrees. I think it's just too thin and dry at that temperature. I switched all my inertia guns to Hoppes Elite gun oil because it is a bit thicker and stays in place better in colder temps. I had my Old Browning out and it cycled flawlessly this past Saturday and our temp was in the single digits. Also an inertia gun does need a bit more oil than a gas gun IMHO. That's what works for me.

Anything that is priced cheaply is done so because of a reason, generally cutting costs on components, quality control, and craftsmanship to be able to offer it for a lower price on the market. No your stoeger isn't "basically a benelli" anymore than my Volkswagen is basically a Bentley.
