January 2023, (Accokeek, MD): Stoeger Industries, maker of high-performance shotguns, self-defense pistols, and air pistols, updates its popular M3500 and P3500 series of shotguns for 2023. Whether a shooter wants to break clays or kill birds and upland game, the M3500 and P3500 series are ready.
Renowned for their smooth operation, durability and reliability, Stoeger shotguns are a favorite with those looking for a “fair price” shooter that will put meat in the freezer and provide memories to last a lifetime.
For 2023, the M3500 lineup gets an upgraded design. Of course, those who put their trust in the Stoeger name can still count on a tough shotgun that will perform no matter what the weather or environment, but now that shotgun has been scaled down for better handling. This leads to consistent framing and improves downrange accuracy. The grip is also thinner and the view from the receiver to the rib is lower.
Still, Stoeger didn’t slow down. Engineers worked to add more useful features to benefit both clay hunters and bird hunters. An oversized bolt handle increases functionality when the hunter’s hands are wrapped in thick gloves. The catch is larger, the front end is redesigned, and the magazine lid is easier to grip and remove. A beveled mag port makes reloading fast and efficient, and a new recoil pad prevents shoulder abuse even when firing heavy loads. The cheek piece, which is available on all models besides satin walnut, adds comfort, but is also removable to ensure custom fit and feel.
Pump-action fans will appreciate the P3500’s synthetic checkered stock with an integrated swivel bolt to ensure easy sling attachment and, like the M3500 series, the grip has been tapered. Dual-cylinder steel bars promise non-stick, repeatable pumping action, and the rotating bolt head ensures positive steel-to-steel locking that increases strength and overall durability.
For 2023, the P3500 is available in two barrel-length models, 26-inch and 28-inch, and both are wrapped in Realtree’s Max-7 camo. Capable of riding 2 3/4, 3 and 3 1/2 in. bikes. cartridges with ease, this economical pump action promises years and years of fail-safe performance.
Whether you’re a clay shooter, migratory hunter, or lover of highland pursuits, Stoeger went the extra mile to create a shotgun to fit every need, and this line of budget-friendly shotguns demands attention, from the M3500 Waterfowl Special to the M3500 Snow Goose to the P3500 models wrapped in new camouflage patterns.
