I bought one last month and I really like it.

There are always going to be folks who say you have to pay over 1000 for a quality semi. I don't think you will regret your purchase.

The reviews as a whole have been really good.

I read all the reviews and everything like that, I bought it about a month ago and put a couple rounds through it and shot about fifty percent but That's probably because I haven't shot since January, gonna get it out next week and see What we can do. What chokes do those of you that own one of these guns use?

Do you mean it malfunctioned half the time???

Will you regret the purchase? Maybe, maybe not. The chances of regretting the purchase of a lower quality shotgun are greater than with the purchase of a higher-grade gun. You really do get what you pay for.

I've had crapguns (JCHiggins, Springfield), and I've had good guns (Browning, Beretta, Wingmasters). While none of them have been completely trouble-free over the decades, the good guns have been far more reliable and given far more satisfaction.

I agree with the above about every tier of gun has its lemons. You could search this forum and any other forum and at the end of the day you'll learn every gun on the planet is both the "best" and "worst" shotgun ever made. The beauty in that is if it turns out you don't care for it, you can always sell it and go find another. Personally I don't have a problem with Stoeger. My M2000 always held up its end of the deal when it came to shooting. I was just the only guy shooting a 3" in my group and decided I wanted a 3.5" option. Happy shooting!

I don't think you will regret it most everthing I have read on these guns is positive. From what I ve read keeping any auto is the key to happy hunting.

I have had mine for almost a year. If you take the time break it in right. The gun will eat anything you feed it. I do not regret the purchase at all. A simple gun that dose not cost a arm and leg. Easily broken down and clean. Plus I have not had a single jam after I fed it a few boxes.

I've been having a hard time trying to decide whether to get a M3500 or spend more and get a SBEII or a A5. The more people that sit on here and talk about how much they like there M3500 makes it an easier decision on my part and save a little more money for something else :biggrin:
