I picked up this shotgun in late autumn last year. I didn't have much of a chance to use it until very recently.
I shoot sporting clays and was getting a little tired of spending hours cleaning my Semi-Auto. I wanted a O/U that wouldn't break the bank and was under the impression that this chunk of change should get me a quality firearm. The gun handled nicely in the store, and mounted well. It was a bit of a tough open to begin with but I knew that it would get better with time (It did).
I put about 400 rounds through the firearm without a problem, however, I started to have issues with the inetria trigger not setting for the next shot (I use 12 ga. 2-3/4", 1200 FPS, 1-1/8 oz. rounds). Then, I had one heck of a time pulling the hand guard off for cleaning the other week. Upon inspection, the two rear screws in the handguard were completely stripped which allowed the forward screw (Running from a metal tang, through the wood on the bottom of the handguard) to break through the 1/2" of wood between it and the handguard release. I can't assemble it, and I will not be firing it in this condition.
400 Rounds, and I am not impressed. My impression is that the screws in the handguard were installed incorrectly, and the orientation of the grain and design of that forward screw is flawed. Unsure about the inertia trigger but I can tell you, it is not due to improper cleaning.
It's in for repairs with Stoeger and I'm back to cleaning the heck out of my Semi-Auto while I ponder what to do with this when I get it back

This is a solid firearm that is very simple. A great gun for someone new to bird hunting or clay and very durable.
Was pretty rough out of the box but after a few dozen rounds and a good cleaning and oiling, it looks and works much better.
It's a bit on the heavy side though well balanced and it does not have a full eject but other than that, it did what it needed to do. The safety, as someone else pointed out, was exactly where I needed it and I had no issue reaching it with my hand on the trigger.
I would probably give it less than 4 stars if it was any more money but I have seen many guns for more that were not any better. Made in Brazil and not China as I had expected which is also a plus in my book.

This is a good shotgun for its price. I bought this shotgun with the intention to shoot trap and skeet. I just joined a trap team at my church and they needed as many shotguns as possible since everyone can join whether they have a shotgun or not. This is a solid shotgun. Ive shot many rounds through it without hitch. Good pattern with the chokes that came with it. The one thing I do wish it had was a better switch to go from under barrel to over barrel. The safety isn't easy to reach when your in the shooting position, well at least not for me. I did purchase a new sight for it as well but the brass sight was not a hindrance. I just wanted a brighter sight. But over all the shotgun is a solid shotgun. The only reason I am giving it a 4 start is because of the barrel switch being the safety and it being in an odd place for the shooting position.
If you plan on purchasing this shotgun, I do recommend you get a TruGlo® Glo-Dot™ Xtreme Universal Sight System . It really helps with any kind of condition. Also you should look at picking up the RedHead® 5-Lens Interchangeable Shooting Glasses. Doesnt matter what type of weather you will be able to see that clay pigeon down the barrel with ease.
This is the set-up I use to this day and I average 23 of 25. May be the accessories or it may not be. All I know is that the numbers done lie. Solid Product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerad704 Great for the money
I decided I wanted to get into skeet/trap shooting. I have put a couple hundred rounds thru it and it shoots great. I have not had any problems from it. Only downside it does not have a barrel selector or auto ejectors. And Was very tight when I first bought it but loosened up after a couple hundred rounds and oiling it up and working it in. And I have been dusting clays with the rest of the high end over/under shotguns. Great first gun for someone wanting to get into shotguns without breaking the bank.

I'm looking for choke tubes that I can use from Bass Pro Shop. Stoeger has their own but I'm hoping for some from Bass Pro Shop. I'm looking to get more out of the shotgun with trap and skeet so an suggestion would really help. Thank you.
