Can anyone here give me some input on using the Stoeger M3000 as a beginner getting involved with 3-Gun? While it's made in Turkey and not Italy, at around $450.00 is seems like a tremendous buy compared to the Benellis which share the Inertial Operating System. It comes in a 26" barrel which would be legal for 3-Gun matches here locally. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
I've been having some issue with my main match gun. I started noticing it when I was testing some other unrelated matters, basically doing "bursts" or mag dumps. Since it was doing it then, I assumed I was "out running" the trigger, because it would be dead, the hammer uncocked. But after a bit of fiddling and more rounds, I realized that wasn't it at all, because it will sometimes do it when I fire a single shot. The odd thing (to me) is when it happens, I end up with a shell on the carrier. It's ghost loading itself. I end up with a live shell in the chamber, a shell on the carrier, shells in the tube... and an uncocked hammer. I know it's a shell latch issue because it does it with other trigger groups in the gun as well. I've had latch issues in that past, modifying them just a touch too much, or enough so that they don't last anyway. But what I don't understand is why the hammer wouldn't be cocked? For a shell to eject and live one to chamber, they bolt obviously travels far enough rearward to cock the hammer. If it were a sear engagement issue / hammer follow, it would be isolated to the one trigger group, but it's not. Anyone seen this behavior before?
