Actually stoegers are assy. in turkey, but all the parts come from co. owned by benelli, like the barrel is from berreta, the automatic system is from benelli and the stock from franchi, and yes i own one and its light weight so it works great on dove, quail and pheasant. The inercha
system also takes the kick out of the 3'' magnum shells so it works great on waterfowl as well. it does'nt cost much to buy it but its not made like some of the cheap autos. I've got a few friends that own the sbe. and their impressed with the handling of this gun. hope this helps answer your ?
P.S. no jams in 0 temps rems. cant say
