Benelli Nova, Super Nova or Stoeger 2000

I am looking for feedback from people who have "ACTUALLY" owned or at least shot these guns.

I am looking for a good ALL AROUND hunter. I dont have a ton of money to spend and these are the guns in my price range RIGHT NOW.

I really, really want a semi auto but am a bit afraid of the Stoeger as it is the CHEAP gun made by Benelli or at least imported by them.

I can pick up the Model 2000 Stoeger (Semi-Auto) in camo for less than a camo Super Nova which is a pump, but I know the Super Nova is a good reliable gun.

The Nova is a nice cheap gun but is also a pump but is a bit skinnier than the Super Nova so it will be a BIT easier to handle but then it wont have the Comfortech recoil reduction like the Super Nova.

I dont want a bunch of Benellis Suck type comments if you dont have personal experience.

I own a nice Remington Wingmaster but dont want to pay to tap the barrel for chokes or spend the cash to buy a new barrel.

I have heard the, "Stay away from Stoeger," from the sporting goods store salesmen but then turn around and hear Stoeger owners saying just the opposite.

Gun will be used for pheas, quail, duck(hopefully), and turkey.

Thanks for the input.

I would get the Super Nova. I myself like pump better than semi's, I think they are more reliable (Yes I know a lot of semi's are very reliable also). I here the Stoeger 2000 is a good gun, in fact when I eventually by a semi, that will probably be the one I buy. Also both Nova's can shoot 3 1/2" shells, where as the Stoeger can only shoot up to 3". The main difference between the Nova and Super Nova is the comfort tech stock. Is it worth the extra money?

I dont PERSONALLY know if the comfortech is worth it or not, but I have heard it is. I just wish they could have left it more streamlined like the Nova.

Well if you want a semi auto walmart has remington 1800 on sale for 200 bucks. I like benellies but there price is rilly high. I have shot all of the ones you have listed. Personally the super nova I like best but I dont own any of them. Benellies have a bad problem about being picky on what ammo you shoot and somtimes wont kick out shells.

I bought my wife a benelli nove when she fell in love with one at the sporting goods store. very nice little pump gun. dissasembly via the built in tool (magazine cap) take about 1 minute if you are not in a hurry, sling swivel eyes moulded into the stock/magazine mounting lug. most of the gun is made of polymer that's easy to take care of yet will last seemingly forever, matte blue on the barrel that won't show scratches. my favorite feature is the magazine cut-off that allows you to empty the chamber without emptying the magazine (good for crossing fences or changing ammo). I paid 325 for it and would do it again in a heartbeat.

i have a nova pump. i love it. a nice, light, gun that's perfect for me since i'm not a very big guy. i picked the nova cause didn't see any reason to pay an extra 100 duckets or so for a silly comfortech stock . got my camo nova for $380 out the door........worth every penny IMHO.

No, you did help me out some. I have been looking at the 11-87 at Wally World myself, just trying to decide if I want to spend 580.00 instead of 350-450 for the other guns listed.

I have always been a Remmy fan, just have heard so much good stuff on the Benellis and a few good things on the Stoeger.

Thanks again.

The Stoeger 2000 will not handle 3.5" magnums but the P-350 will, only thing is, its a pump.

I would definately like a shotgun that will accept 3.5" magnum shells for turkey and geese but its not a requirement.

I also saw the Charles Daly tonight at Wally World for a good price as well as the Mossberg 935 Magnum, both Semi's.

I won a CD full camo pump gun, I never shot it, never liked it. Ended up selling it and using the money to pick up a used double barrel at a gun show a week ago.

Read what I wrote again.

Yes, Benelli is a sister company to Stoeger. But as I stated, Stoeger is a Subsidiary fo BERETTA. Benelli is as well, hence making Stoeger and Benelli sister companies.

He never mentioned that he was looking for a gun that would accept 3.5" shells. So I didn't take that information into my responce.

Go with the Super. I've never shot a regualr nova, but I got to shoot my old man's super nova a few weeks ago and I really liked it. No kick at all. Just a nice all around gun. The only thing that I didn't like about it was it seemed a little heavy. But I was able to go out to the trap club and shoot 100+ round through it in an afternoon no problem. Its nice because like mentioned it will shoot up to 3 1/3" Mags for geese or cranes. Comes with 3 or 4 chokes and a little tool to remove them.

If I didn't need the money for a varmit gun I would definently go out and buy myself one without thinking about it to replace my remington 1100 semi as my hunting shot gun.

I bought a Stoeger P-350 this spring. I haven't had any problems with it yet. It will shoot a 3.5" shell, but the plug in it does not make loading very easy. Two 3.5" shells in the magazine will not lock in, one shell is pushed back under the guide.
