Thinkin about gettin one of these in 12 gauge for a just because gun.

I already have a mossy 500 that holds 7 rounds for house duty so that is covered, but i have always liked the looks of doubles and i just found a place that has them for 350.00 New.

Is this a fair price for a nib one?

Anyone own one who could tell me if they are worth it, if theyre reliable, and any other details would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I have the nickel plated version, it originally came with a black painted wood stock which of course had to go. I sanded all the black off and removed the pistol grip part of the buttstock so it's English style now.
It's been a sweet heart of a gun, always goes bang although I haven't shot it in a while. Even shot trap with it once and hit quite a few surprisingly. Can't say for certain on price, my son got me the one I got.

Check Buds or Gunbroker for comparisons.

My local guy said it best. It's a cheap shotgun and if it don't work you always got a canoe paddle. So far mine has staying in shooter category, don't have a canoe.

Not sure who it was who was famous for his pictures or it didn't happen but I remember, so here's some pics of my Stoeger. Remember, don't shoot the photograper, or was the the messenger, well don't shooy either and we'll be ok. For you Viewing pleasure.

Bawanna-

Thats a good lookin scatter gun you have. I know i will prolly get flamed for this but i always thought it would be cool to cut the stock into a birds head pistol grip. Not sure if u could tho as it mite be under the legal over all length...

I used to turn the stock into pistol grips on rifles, and my buddy his shotguns.
Seemed like If you leave the barrel stock length you're fine.
I think federal law minimum was something like 26" length overall.

Check to be sure.
Then it's really not that hard to get the short rifle, silencer type, licences for about $200 bucks.
And then you can get as short as you want.

I had a Ruger 10/22 with a pistol grip
that I loved doing my interpretation of The Rifleman with.

I have the Stoeger Coach Gun. It always works, but I don't think it would stand a real lot of shootin' like clays. I wouldn't want to anyway. It kicks like a mule!:eek:

I have one and it was designed to stand up to alot and I mean alot of shooting because it was designed for cowboy action shooting and those folks put many thousands of round through there guns. Yup your right it does kick like a mule, cause it is light weight and has short barrels. $ 350.00 is the right price.

Ya that is a big reason why i want to buy it. I have heard they are built to last... I shoot mt shotgun as much or more than my pistols. I will by it in a week or so if they have a 12 gauge in stock
