The new model Stoeger 2000 I just purchased is more like a no thrills version of the Franchi I-12 with its inertia drive system/design. Three years ago, the like-chambered M3000 replaced the popular M2000. One relies on recoil the other on the tapped pressure of the propellant gasses. This system is based on a spring placed between the locking head and the bolt. The latest wrinkle is Remington's VersaMax, now superseded by their V3, where the gas ports are located in the chamber. Deals. The beauty of the argument about inertia versus gas is that there is no defined winner or loser. Mallards are masters of avoiding hunting pressure. Historically, I don't think its unjustified to say Stoegers are not as refined as their Benelli counterparts and that dovetails into reliability (more so with older … Stoeger is best known for manufacturing impressive weapons, especially over/under shotguns. This is partly due to the carbon and unburned powder that are blown into the action by the bled propellant gasses. Plus, with no propellant gas venting into the operating system, the Model 2000 stays cleaner. I don't know much about the Mossberg other than the fact that i heard it is reliable and easy to maintain, and someone told me about the Stoeger M2000 and that it has the inertia driven system like the Benelli's. If you’re in the market for a … Before Remington refined and popularized gas operation with their ubiquitous model 1100, semi-auto shotguns basically worked using recoil operation just as they did when they were first invented. Any input on either of the guns would be great. |
