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 started having an issue today at a match that I've never experienced before which led to an other issue when I got home. I have a factory M3K w/ a Nordic +8 extension. Never had any issues feeding shells before. Today, when I put 8 or more in the tube, it refused to release the first shell. So on every stage, I had to pull up on the bolt release then fight the jam that it caused to get it to manually load the first shell. After that, it ran fine. I didn't understand what exactly what causing it until I got home. When I got home, I loaded some dummy shells to recreate the situation. If I put 6 in the tube, it runs flawlessly. Releases the first shell onto the carrier without any issue. As soon as I put 7 or more, things stop working. I initially thought it was the spring since I never trimmed it and it was about 16" past the end of the tube. Got out my measuring tape and pliers and trimmed it 5 coils to get it to be ~12" past the end of the tube. Still the same thing. So at this point, I detail stripped the shotgun. I wanted to examine the carrier latch assembly and possibly try to smooth it out and round it out a bit. However, I can't get the stupid screw holding the extended bolt release off. I'm afraid it might already be stripped. I've tried heat, and PB blaster to no avail. Any secret to getting the carrier latch assembly out?
Hey all. I have 2 questions if like to get some info on. I have a Benell I M1 Super90 with a 21" vent rub barrel and a + 4 Nordic mag extension on it. I've only out about 200 rounds thru it since turning it into a Home Defense of 3-gun type shotgun. I haven't shot more cause none of the ranges here in the Houston area will allow me to shoot it unless I shoot ONLY SLUGS. No practice ammo shooting sessions here so I'm pretty much screwed on the shooting until I find a friendly range. The only complaint I have is that the recoil can be really painful at times even with the 100 round practice ammo boxes. I have heard the Limbsaver fitted butt pads work well. Have any of you tried one of these pads? I'd like to get some recommendations on what the best solution for me to make this shotgun somewhat enjoyable to shoot would be please Lastly, I know many really like the Stoeger M3000 shotguns for 3-gun and home defense type duty. I've never handled one. How do you think they compare or match up to my M1 Super 90 as I have it now? Which would you rather have and why? Since Stoeger is owned by Benelli I am guessing it has the inertia operating system in them like the Benelli autos do. Is it the same system or are there differences? Thank you for your time and any help or advice you care to give me. Have a good weekend everyone. BD
