Stoeger® 12 Gauge Coach Gun Side by Side Shotgun
The 20 gage version
I have the 20 gage version of this gun. I bought it for home defense. The next day I went rabbit hunting with it... It became my rabbit gun/home defense gun. I have taken rabbits with this at 40 and 45 yards. Great little partridge gun too. I put a sling on it, for ease of carrying while managing dogs in and out of the woods. Also added a LimbSaver recoil pad. Great fun gun. Easy to clean, durable, and dependable. Never had a problem with it in 6 years and it does not get treated with kid gloves. Good close in (home defense range) with buck shot and slugs but not that great at 25 or 50 yards. Of course it was never advertised as a deer gun...

Stoeger Coach Gun
Used this Shotgun for taget practice on lg Coffee Can. This baby did a number on it, looked like a screened door after I got done.
No problems at all, great price. Impressive for shooting or home defense.
Double 00 buck, would stop an intruder. Permernantly.

Excellent Cowboy Gun
I swapped out the Stoeger Uplander that I was using for Cowboy Action Shooting for this Coach Gun. It's the same design, but a shorter barrel.
The gun performs flawlessly. I've had no issues.
For ease of use, I'd suggest a lighter latch spring and polishing of the entire latch mechanism and extractor. If I can do these things, so could you!

Simple yet effective
I was looking for a double barrel shotgun in 12 gauge and decided on the Stoeger.
Got it home and reassembled it right away with no problem. The design is simple but when used at a paper target 10 - 30 feet away it is very effective. Easy and quick to reload.
Best of all, the price. At $399.99 this was well worth the money!
