In 2015, I was part of a group of hunters that used Stoeger M3000 shotguns to hunt doves in Argentina. Over the course of three days, I fired roughly 4,000 rounds through the M3000 without an issue. Very, very few turkey hunters will ever put that many shells through their gobbler gun but that test speaks to the reliability of these Stoegers. The M3000 and its 3 ½-inch, 12-gauge counterpart the M3500 utilize the Inertia-Driven action perfected by parent company Benelli, and a dearth of moving parts is one of the factors that makes these guns so reliable. The turkey hunting models of the M3000 and M3500 both come with a Realtree APG camo dip and SteadyGrip pistol grip for added comfort and stability when touching off magnum loads, and both guns have 24-inch barrels with red fiber optic front sights and three choke tubes (IC, M, XFT). The 3-inch gun weighs 7.3 pounds, and the 3 ½-inch version weighs 7.5.
