This 3-Gun shotgun can deliver the goods without breaking the bank. 2014 was a quiet introduction to 3-Gun competition for Stoeger, sponsoring two pro shooters – Ryan Muller and Jesse Tischauser.
The M3000 proved to be up to the challenge performing without a hitch. The natural next step was to turn the M3000 into an out-of-the-box, competition ready shotgun to make this growing sport more accessible. Stoeger worked with Muller, Tischauser, and the infamous Patrick Kelley to design the specifications to create a factory gun which loads, points, and shoots like a custom competition gun for about one-third of the price.
“This has been a project which was developed hand-in-hand with our shooters,” said Tom Kaleta, Vice President of Marketing for Benelli USA. “The shooters started calling their customized M3000’s the ‘M3K’ and the name just worked. We are proud to introduce a truly reliable competition gun at a price point which won’t break the bank.”
Like all Stoeger semi-auto shotguns, the heart of the M3K is its ultra-reliable Inertia Driven® operating system, making it among the fastest cycling, most reliable shotguns in the world. The M3K comes race-ready to get you up and competing right out of the box. It comes with an oversized anodized aluminum bolt release, oversized safety, and extended tactical-style anodized aluminum bolt handle. This trifecta of components make for quick and easy operation when seconds count. In addition, the M3K features a custom, elongated carrier and enlarged, beveled loading port for quicker and easier reloading.
The M3K will launch at SHOT 2015 and will be seen at the range in the hands of pro-shooters Muller, Tischauser, Kelley, and top lady’s pro shooter Becky Yackley.
