The 2000 isn't like the 3500 the operating system is a little different but they do make a 3000 that is just like the 3500 but in 3"
I loved my 3500 I had to sale it due to some financial issues anyways the only problem I had with it cycling was the 1 oz loads which it tells you not to shoot anything less than 1 1/8oz which it never had a problem with....I would clean it real good then run about a box of the 2 3/4" high brass shells through it to get it broke in a little and it should be fine.....it has a recoil reducer that comes with it that will make it not want to cycle light loads when installed so only install it when you are shooting heavy 3 or 3 1/2"shells
In my opinion it is the best value in a semi auto shotgun on the market
