Stoeger uplander

Does anybody have or had a stoeger sxs shotgun, i need a new .410 for rabbit hunting my old stevens 311 is shot out, i hunt alot and abuse them(brush). Just wanted a couple of opinions on them, i don't like anything but sxs's and u are very limited to new, and everybody thinks the old ones are worth a million bucks. thanks

Re: Stoeger uplander

I had a Stoeger Uplander in 12ga. Man was that thing a piece of junk. Traded it in on a new Remington SxS... And I wish I had never gotten rid of the Stoeger. Nothing fit togther right, it broke on me once, but that thing was a great fitting, stright shooting gun.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

Re: Stoeger uplander

I had an uplander 12 ga. and it worked just fine.....shot many a dove and rabbit with it.For the price you can't beat it and you don't have to baby it like you would a $1000 sxs.
Maybe "Trapjaw" had an older one...the new ones are better.

The 410 is nice for 300 bucks....

Re: Stoeger uplander

I have never heard of anyone shooting out a 410 before but as far as the Stoger goes. You will get what you pay for.

Re: Stoeger uplander

I've got an Uplander 20 ga. w/ double triggers. I did some research before i bought and the general I found was some people have problems with the single trigger models. Graet gun for the money and it hits what I shoot at.

Re: Stoeger uplander

i didn't shoot out the stevens my left barrel has quite a ding in it and you can see small dings inside the barrel on both sides including the left. had a gunsmith tell me he could fix the right to almost new but the left ding is in the forcing cone and he couldn't guarantee a sucessful fix.

Re: Stoeger uplander

Did some research on those awhile back myself. I've found that some people have had good luck with them and love, while other folks just had poor luck and hate them. That tells me one thing, ..... they must have poor QC at the factory. Some runs are good, some aren't.

You give any thought on looking for a used sxs on gunbroker.com or at local gun shops?
I think you'd be better off buying something used American made than a new import considering their QC issues.

Just a thought. Good luck!

Re: Stoeger uplander

To bad your not near Shyda's gun shop in Lebanon,Pa there Uplanders are 309.00 for any gage.I've seen <u>used</u> Uplanders at Cabelas for over 400.00
But then Cabelas is always over priced on there used guns.
