I strongly recommend the Stoeger 2000. Mine has been flawless. Not one problem of any kind. It is SO simple to take apart and clean that you have to do it to believe it. It shoulders and points so well that I'm done looking at semi-autos for a while or until I somehow can swing the $$$ for an M2 or Montefeltro. . . . but I will KEEP my 2000. I can see I'll also be in the market for a larger gun cabinet soon! Yes, I have the shotgunaholic disease, but at least it's not hard on my liver, just my bank acct.
