I want to get a new gun before next duck season and have been looking at the stoegar 3500 automatic and looking for reviews. I'm currently shooting a remington 1187 and it was my papas gun before he quit duck hunting and I'd like to set it aside before it gets scratched and beat up anymore. So any reviews would be helpful!

Look for a good used benelli or Beretta depending on your price range.

Exactly. Saved nearly two thirds of the cost of a Beneli and I'm happy I did. It's not a Beneli, but it shoots when I pull the trigger, comes with chokes, and I don't care about taking it out in the slop or it getting dinged up. I say go for it.

I think you should shoot one. Where are you located? I'm near Alpine shooting range near Fort Worth if you want to meet up and put some shells through it.

how much are you going to spend? I never really pay attention to stoeger prices, but id lean more towards finding a used beretta 391 if I was having to get a quality gun with limited funds

Don't have a 3500 but I do have the 3000 and it shoots as good as a Benelli, for a LOT less money.

they work fine until they don't work anymore, and sometimes that happens pretty quick. Crap shoot as to whether you get a one that will last.

those 3500's and 870's have a lot in common when it comes to that crap shoot

hayraker has said it best. for the same money you can get a good used beretta or browning, I would look into that. Not a worse feeling than putting the money together to get something, and getting disappointed because of its poor quality. i'm all about the great value brand and wal mart shopping with certain things like groceries and clothes. but with things like equipment, work boots, and hunting gear....don't cut corners.

No, a new 870 is a sure thing, junk

I'm with Hayraker on this one. One of my friends has one, though I think it is the 3000. Early problems I saw he claimed were due to it needing to be broke in. I still have seen it jam up or stovepipe from time to time on hunts.
