Magnum Performance and Reliability — 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 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 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 — Matte Black synthetic, Realtree® APG™ or Realtree® Max-4®.
The top of the Model 3500 receiver is drilled and tapped to accommodate a Weaver-style scope base included with each gun.
Shim kits come with the Model 3500, allowing for customized drop and cast adjustment to fit each individual shooter.
The Model 3500 features a streamlined fore-end cap with a positive gripping surface and incorporates a sling swivel stud.
Each Model 3500 displays an attractive blue Stoeger logo on the pistol grip cap.
The Model 3500 comes with four choke tubes, including F, M, IC & extra Full Turkey (XFT).
The model 3500 comes with a red-bar front sight for quick and easy target acquisition even in low light conditions.
The model 3500 bolt assembly includes an inertia spring and rotating locking head, two features that distinguish the bolt as an integral part of an Inertia Driven® System.
The model 3500 comes with a recoil reducer that is a standard item with purchase. The buttstock incorporates a cut cavity that facilitates easy fitting.
