I sure do...
Buddy bought one brand new this past year and it had terrible cycling problems. Even with various loads and a good break-in period the gun was not to be trusted. Stoeger fixed it twice...no help.
The dealer finally traded him another one straight-up (good dealer). The 2nd Stoeger 2000 started the same ol cra* almost out of the box. After 3 problems in the field, my friend traded it in on a SB2...no more worries.
Buy at your own risk or make sure your dealer stands behind it.
Oh, my friend owns over 100 guns of all types. He's not a novice.

I have one and it does good but the dealer said that youshould shoot 100 rounds through it to "load" the spring(which i didn't do) and it worked fine. The only thing w/ mine is that putting it in and out of my case the paint rubs off easily

Remington is my personal gun of choice.
There are better guns out there but not for the same money
