My Stoeger M3000 was not without issues out of the box. The hammer would snag on the seat hook after firing first round. It was grabbing in a spot other than the hook, required some dremel clearance work, fine after that, but could piss off most people.You should test one of the cheap Turkish shotguns as well for comparison!
Most shotgun recoil don't bother me, but a 3.5 inch steel bb load out of a Mossberg pump is punishing...
The mag tube was threaded into the receiver, but not very tightly. Twisted out easily. I reinstalled with sleeve loctite.
The loading port is fairly narrow. I hogged out that mother with a dremel. Much easier to load in a zombie fantasy, but otherwise just devalued my cheap Benelli wanna-be.
It's a slick gun.
