Gettin a Stoeger M3000 for Christmas/graduation. Gonna bust the hell out some late season ducks.
Don't do this! Hunted with a brand new one last weekend. After a ride in the ranger to the blind and a morning if blasting ducks and geese, the damn thing had more scratches than you could ever imagine.
The finish simply does not hold up at all. I have a 20 year old 870 that looks better than the 1 use stoger.
The black synthetic finishing is flawed!!!
