Stoeger Coach Gun Reviews

Postby careca6677 » Wed Jan 03, 2007 4:53 pm

This coach gun is actually manufactured in Brazil and sold in the US by Stoeger. I own the 12G version for five years now and so far has shot flawlessly. Couple of things you should know about it: steel quality and blueing is ok but not that great, assembly of parts is acceptable for the grade and price. The worst thing about this gun is the sloppy brass bead pressure installed (no thread), its small and low quality bead that you will want to change it as soon as you see it and youll need a good gunsmith to thread it and install a good one instead as I did with mine. The stock is a solid hardwood with acceptable checkering and finish. No rubber buttplate installed and you will need one as this gun kicks like a mule when its fed with shot over 1oz. Its short, fast swinging and light enough gun to carry all day long. Chokes are fixed mod. and imp. cyl. which I found it perfect for rabbits, some birds and all around fun shooting, and the most important is that it hits exactly what youre aiming at. Good gun for the price..

i owned one of these shot guns for 2 years now excellent gun it does kick when you use 3 inch loads but nothing to cry about. i dont shoot trap or sporting clays too often about 3 times a year but i took it out shooting sporting clays and scored a 25 out of 50 with it. i havent shot for almost 2 years. so i was impressed blueing looks great. fired about 300 rounds thur mine with not a single problem.

I had the 20ga model and liked it a lot the only thing was the action was very VERY stiff other than that it was good

Aktchilly, the 'Coach Gun was made to blast Bad Guys off'n thems Hosses . As they was fixin' to rob the coach. Thus the term , "Riding-Shot Gun". This was a good thing! So good , that when word got around .....All the Goombahs in Sicily had the gun made over there exactly to the same specs and a tad bit more quality .......And thus the 'Coach Gun' became THE GUN to defend the Dons with . Ayyyy, it's a uh, Family Thing , Capiche ? Hah,whaddathinkthefrikkin'guns so short for ?! Poppin bunnies ? Nah, it's for whackin' some rat mug tryin' to bust in your home !! You don't need to aim it ....just point it , an' slam th' sucker wit both barells ....nobody's gonna do crap as ya re-load . They'll be to busy holdin' their bowels in ,tryin' not to crap their pants. So's that's what a short double's for .....Ayyyyy, just spreadin'th' word .

I am not sure why they call this whole line "coach guns", because mine has a 20" barrel. Anyway, great gun. Paid 225$, and just enjoy the heck out of it. The woodwoork is a bit spotty, but I use it for busting clays and upland birds. This light little baby will do just fine for either, and won't break the bank. As long as you are not in it for the looks.

I've had mine in 12ga for at least 15 years. This is a no frills, side by side....a real working gun.

I generally use this for grouse, rabbits and occasionally for ducks in flooded timber. Mine has 3 in chambers and is choked modified and improved cylinder.

I once used it for spring turkey hunting (3" #6 in the modified barrel and 3" #2 in the improved cylinder barrel) and it worked very well.

If you have delusions of shooting 00 buckshot forget about it. With heavy loads this thing kicks like a mule.

In short, this is a well built reasonably priced gun....
