Magnum Performance and Reliabilityā€”the Model 3500 in 3 1/2-inch Magnum
Announcing the new Stoeger M3500 3-1/2-inch, 12-gauge, semi-automatic shotgun, the latest addition to Stoeger's line of quality, affordable shotguns for hunters and shooters. Versatility, value and solid reliability make the M3500 the perfect choice for waterfowl, wild turkey or upland game birds. The M3500 handles a full range of loads, from 2-1/4-inch up to the potent 3-1/2-inch Magnum without adjustment. For reliability and performance, no other 3-1/2-inch semi-auto in its price range compares.
At the heart of the Stoeger M3500 is the proven Inertia DrivenĀ® operating system; simple and efficient with only three moving parts in the bolt for lightning-fast, reliable operation. Unlike older gas-system guns, the M3500's Inertia Driven action is contained primarily within the receiver; giving the Stoeger M3500 a better more centered balance and swing. With no propellant gas venting into the action, the M3500 stays cleaner longer.
Stoeger's M3500 comes with either a 24-, 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 and includes a Weaver-style scope base. All M3500's come supplied with four choke tubes (Extra-full turkey, Full, Modified, and Improved-Cylinder), shim kit for drop and cast adjustment, and a threaded steel recoil reducer that can be installed in the buttstock to help manage felt recoil from heavy Magnum loads. The M3500 is available in three different finishes ā€” Matte Black synthetic, Realtree APG or Realtree Max-4.
