The M3000 is a 3-inch, 12-gauge, semi-automatic shotgun that handles loads from 2¾-inch up to the potent 3-inch Magnum without adjustment.

At the heart of the Stoeger M3000 is the proven Inertia Driven® operating system; simple and efficient with only three moving parts in the bolt for lightning-fast, reliable operation. Unlike older gas-system guns, the M3000's Inertia Driven® action is contained primarily within the receiver, giving the Model M3000 a better more centered balance and swing. With no propellant gas venting into the action, the M3000 shoots clean and stays cleaner longer.

Stoeger's M3000 comes with either a 26- or 28-inch barrel, fitted with a ventilated, stepped rib and fiber-optic front sight for quick target acquisition, even under low-light hunting conditions. The alloy receiver is drilled and tapped to accommodate a Weaver-style scope base. All M3000's come supplied with three choke tubes (Extra-full turkey, Modified, and Improved-Cylinder), and a shim kit for drop and cast adjustment.

Options include a threaded steel recoil reducer, which can be installed in the buttstock to help manage felt recoil and a SteadyGrip buttstock for turkey hunting. The M3000 is available in three different finishes — Matte Black synthetic, Realtree® APG or Advantage® Max-4. Versatility, value and solid reliability make the M3000 the perfect choice for waterfowl, wild turkey or upland game birds. For reliability and performance, no other semi-auto in its price range compares.
