I have a m2000 defense model with the 18.5" barrel. It has a dependable action and does what I want. Really light loads may cause some trouble with the action cycling, but I haven't had any problems since I got a few hundred rounds through mine. It wouldn't eat the game loads at first, but will now. I'm happy with mine. I've shot thousands of rounds of 12 gauge through Winchester, Remington, and Mossberg pumps and don't think the Stoeger has more recoil than they did. I've only feared recoil when it was warm weather and we were shooting pheasant loads with only a t-shirt on, so I might just be more tolerant of it.

Default Mossberg or Stoeger?

I am a hardcore Rem 870 user. but i need to buy my girlfriend a low-recoil semi-auto for waterfowl and wild turkey hunting. I am trying to decide between the Mossberg 930 or the Stoeger M2000. I need lightweight, reliable but driving factor is low recoil. any advice would be appreciated.

Go find a nice used Beretta A303 or Browning B-80 (they are both made by Beretta and are identical). You should be able to find one in that price range.

Even a new Beretta 3901 will cost you about five bills. The 930 is a pretty good gun, but Stoeger is another story. Borrowed a friends 2000 and tried shooting two rounds of clays with it. Could't swallow target loads worth a crap...
