Ideal for use in tight quarters and tense situations, the Stoeger Double Defense O/U with its traditional break-action and short, efficient design is easy to load and quick to deploy in an emergency.

A double-barrel shotgun has been the defensive firearm of choice for generations, but Stoeger has added practical, up-to-date features to the "tried-and-true" double gun. The Double Defense O/U is chambered for 2 ¾- and 3-inch shells, in either 12- or 20-gauge. The tactical-length 20-inch barrels feature fixed, improved cylinder chokes. The fast, single-trigger design and convenient, tang-mounted automatic safety makes the Stoeger Double Defense O/U ideal for home security use.

The Double Defense O/U is fitted with a green, fiber-optic front sight and comes standard with three Picatinny rail accessory mounts-two that are factory-installed forward of the fore-end on either side of the barrels, and a third Picatinny rail is included with the gun and can be mounted on the receiver for those who prefer optic sights. All metal surfaces are finished in matte blue and come complete with non-reflective matte black hardwood stock and fore-end.

"Stoeger's new Double Defense O/U shotgun is a perfect choice for high-stress, self defense situations where simple is best," said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli USA's VP of Marketing & Communications. "If you want a gun that's easy to use and quick to handle-and one that won't crush your finances-the Stoeger Double Defense is your shotgun of choice."
