I called the local gun dealer today and had him order me the gun. It is my girlfriends Valentines Day gift (I hope she likes it
I called him and ordered it while I was at work. I was looking at the Stoeger Website at the time and the only showed one model of single shot 20 gauge. It had a vent rib barrel, which I thought was a nice feature and haven't seen on other single shots. When I got home I looked in a 2003 Stoeger catalog I had and I see they had both the slightly cheaper non-vent ribbed barrel and the one I thought I was ordering. I tried to call the gun shop and ask him about it but he was already gone. I would assume that they no longer carry the non-vent rib barreled gun and only make the one with the vent rib. If anyone can shine some light for me I would appreciate it.
Also, does anyone have any experience with the Stoeger single shots? Any problems or things to look out for? I know questions I should have asked before ordering one but I figured they are associated with Benelli so I figured I would be okay.
