Stoeger
« on: November 23, 2012, 10:27:22 AM »
Wife looked at the Stoeger Coach Gun in 20 and 12 gauge...she likey.
But want her to have more rounds available so looking at the Mossberg 590 special purpose series.
Everything for around $650 MSRP.
I'm pretty sure I can get it cheaper.
But I also think I can get a standard 590 and build it up for her use.
This will be for our Anniversary.

I suppose the Shotgun Anniversary is traditional followup to the Shotgun Wedding.  ;)

I lean to the 590 between those two choices, but recently got to play with a 930.  Good things to say about the 930.

I'll check them out later.
But something about a double barrel coach gun that says, "Holy Sh!#! I better get the fluff outta here!"

I like the coach gun for new shooters and people who dont devote as much time to practicing. I dont' know how many thousands of rounds I have behind and 870, and I have short stroked when running drills with it. You can't really short stroke a coach gun :-)

That said, I LOVE the 930. My hands down favorite shotgun to play with.

The stoeger has a bit more recoil than a pump. Have shot a stoeger and my 870 18.5" one after the other and the stoeger was much worse. And the weight is about the same on them.

are all the 590's heavy or is that just the A1?

just hefting them the coach gun weighs less than my stevens 350 and about the same as my 500.

if you are still considering the coach gun a few things you should be aware of: the standard models come with a plastic butt plate that does no one any favors in terms of recoil, might want to replace it or grab a sip on pad right off the bat. the safety is auto engaged whenever the action is broken, some people really hate this. you can disable it pretty easily i'm told, but i just practice sweeping the safety as i shoulder.

i wish you could get it with ejectors but all in all it's a fun little gun.

I'm also thinking of Ithicas. Maybe even a simple double barrel gun with ejectors and no safety. Like an few over/under shottys I know about.
