I think it has a 28". It will be for turkeys mainly. I am not a duck hunter but one of our buyers gave a us a 5 day hunt, and I don't want to show up with my old single shot 10 gauge. The only drawback I see on the 1187's I'd they are a little heavier than the rest. Can they cycle dove loads?

there are a few threads on the Stoeger 2000 so you can search for those for more info, but IF money is part of the equation then the Stoeger is a dang fine gun. I have on and absolutely love it and have had no issues with it. I got the one in camo that came with 2 barrels 24 and 28 and 2 stocks, pistol and field grips for $499.

the 1187 is a dang fine gun to if you have the extra money to spend. The stoeger is easier to clean and uses the same action as the benelli's. It uses recoil to load the action instead of gas which makes cleaning it easier.

just a choice of comfort for the shoot, but i have an 870 super mag, 1100 and a stoeger 2000 and I love shooting the Stoeger personally

I had an 1187 supermag and it was a lemon! I sent it back to Remingtons gunsmiths TWICE and they never could fix it! It would jam when shooting 2 3/4 shells. Gunsmith finally added a gas ring that I had to remove before shooting 3 or 3 1/2 in loads! I dont think so, I didnt buy a brand new gun to have to work on it depending on the loads i was shooting! I got rid of it first chance I got and took a beating on it!

Seems to be the number 1 complaint- won't eject low brass 2.75's. I wonder is the higher end field loads will cycle.I have heard surprisingly good things about the stoeger- just wish it would handle 3.5's
