My wife just bought me an M2000 for my birthday. It was on sale for $449 with $30 more off due to a firearm sale. So for $419 I figured I'd take a chance on this gun. Ive been eyeing them for a long time and think I have all the steps memorized on how to avoid some of the common problems people have. I.E. strip it, clean it, light oil, work the bolt manually in front of the TV for a couple hours, fire a couple boxes of duck loads through it, clean it, light oil, work the bolt some more....enjoy.
I have an 70's era wingmaster that I have been using for duck hunting but wanted a synthetic autoloader to not worry about beating up when I hunt in the canoe and the swamps. I also have an STF3000 that I use for clays and wood duck hunting since I like walking into my wood duck hole with an O/U slung over my shoulder. Feels classic to me.
Anyway...on to my question. So I also learned that the limbsaver 10008 is a lifesaver (or shouldersaver) and decided to order one online while I wait the 3 days for the gun. I ordered it from Jets Guns since they had the lowest total price for the pad + shipping even with their $4.95 low order penalty fee. A couple websites listed the pad as being for a Browning Gold 12/20 only and a couple (Amazon) also listed it for the Stoeger m2000. The exact desciption on the website was "LIMB 10008 PAD BRN GOLD 12/20 SYN". Did I order the right one?
Thanks all - I'll report back in 2 weeks with the range report and around Thanksgiving with some field trials from the Florida waterfowl 1st split!
