The Stoeger M3020 is an affordable shotgun in the line of quality. It gives a clean shot and lets the gun stay clean longer since it has no propellant gas that vents into the action. A ventilated rib is fitted in the gun’s barrel. This beauty comes with three choke tubes with an improved cylinder, modified, and extra-full turkey. The gun also has a shim kit used for cast adjustment and drop. Learn more about the Stoeger Model 3020 as you scroll on.

Being a semi-automatic shotgun, the Stoeger Model 3020 is the best choice in waterfowling. It’s the third version of the Stoeger 3000 series autoloader shotguns. It can handle a 2 ¾-inch load up to a 3-inch magnum load without any adjustments needed. This beauty is equipped with a ventilated rib, giving the shooter a quick target acquisition. When you look at this shotgun at the side, it looks like a 26-inch replica of the 3-inch model. Although you can tell that it’s definitely not a 12-gauge just by picking it up.

Using the Stoeger Model 3020 for a couple of times was definitely an experience to remember. I would recommend this beauty for some upland shooting and waterfowling. It’s simple yet reliable. You’ll surely have fun out in the field using this gun. A market value of $700 is a small price to pay for a shotgun of this quality. I’m considering getting one in the near future.

    This shotgun is something I must check out as I am in the market for a 20 Ga. shotgun.

  2. James R. Currier says:

    Make them in 12 ga. and 10 ga. and able to shoot 2 3/4″ up to 3 1/2″ mag shells. I’d buy one of each at twice the current msrp.

    1. Paul Eames says:

      They do it’s called the m3000 for 3 inch and m3500 for 3.5 inch shells. same price as the 20 gauge. I have the m3000 and I am to old now to shoot 3.5 inch shells.

      They are great guns for the money, or as I call the gun…”Benelli’s ugly cousin”.

    2. E. Allen says:

      Won the Stoeger M3020 in a raffle at the start of dove season. Was skeptical with it’s price being so low in comparison to the other brands. All in all it’s a very nice shotgun. Mine has the walnut furniture and cerakote bronze finish, it has held up well as of yet. It’s not the high gloss wall hanger or big brand name so many have been forced to except as the standard of a good gun, it’s a gun I can use, enjoy and not loose sleep over when the inevitable ding in the stock or a scratch on the barrel happens.
      My only complaints are the chokes seem to produce a weird pattern and the charging handle is smaller than I would like. Those two things are being remedied in the next week with aftermarket parts
