The Stoeger Model 2000 is licensed to use Driven operating system — the heart of the world’s most prestigious and reliable autoloaders. The Stoeger Model 2000 is Inertia Driven with only two moving parts in the bolt: the bolt body and the rotating locking head. Simplicity ensures reliability and the Model 2000 is quickly gaining a reputation as the most reliable semi-automatic on the market in its price range.
Unlike common gas-operated guns whose fore-ends conceal operating rods, pistons, O-rings, valves and other moving parts, the inertia recoil system is primarily contained inside the receiver. The results? A trimmer fore-end, better balance, more reliable operation and the ability to fire everything from light target ammunition to the heaviest waterfowl loads without adjustments. And because propellant gas isn’t vented from the barrel into the operating system, Inertia Driven guns like the Model 2000 stay cleaner, even after hundreds of shots. Even under the toughest conditions, your new Model 2000 will keep on firing! Reliability, versatility and value are what you expect in a semi-automatic shotgun and no other semi-automatic in its price range even compares to the Model 2000.
