Stoeger Introduces Inertia-Driven® 3½-inch Magnum Semi-Auto

ACCOKEEK, MD — Announcing the new Stoeger M3500 3½-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 2¾-inch up to the potent 3½-inch Magnum without adjustment. For reliability and performance, no other 3½-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 five choke tubes (Extra-full turkey, Full, Modified, Improved-Cylinder, and 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 new Model M3500, which is based on the rock-solid Inertia Driven® operating system, is affordable and versatile.” said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli’s VP of Marketing & Communications. “I’m sure hunters will be delighted with the performance and the price, of the latest addition to the Stoeger lineup.”
