stoeger m2000 ?

Has anybody ever sanded down the milling on the magazine tube so it doesnt have that record scratching sound when you open the action. Really not a big fan of this noise.

Does the gun function ok? How many shells have been shot through it? Have you tried a little lube on the edges?

It cycles shells just fine, I just bought it use for $185 the owner said he never had any problems with it. He used it for 2 duck seasons. I put a few boxes of 3 dram trap loads through it at the 5stand and it did just fine. The noise is just really annoying to me.

I haven't sanded anything on them. Sure it doesn't need a good cleaning and some lube?

Its clean as a whistle. Its the small ridges in the outside of the magazine tube that are causing the noise.

I did on my 3500 because I could stand that sound. It has not affected anything with the function of the gun. It did take away the sound!

Thats what I thought someone might say. What did you use to sand them off?

I just used 400 sandpaper then some 600. I did not want to take off to much just smooth it down. With those grits it did take some time and work.

Ya, I hope people keep having trouble with them, I like to buy them cheap! Seriously, My son has one, it has been a real good gun, and I enjoy shooting it.

The third generation 2000 with the red front bead, is a shooting little gun. The first two versions not so much, but they got all the bugs worked out in gen3. I have one, won't sell it. Runs every bit as well as my $1200 SBEII, but with a little more recoil due to the regular stock.
