ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 23, 2019) – The flagship waterfowl shotgun from Stoeger® has received upgrades to its performance and aesthetic features to create the company’s best semiautomatic shotgun for serious duck and goose hunters. The Stoeger M3500 Waterfowler Special has been designed with tried-and-true versatility and reliability at a great value.
The Waterfowler 3500 receiver and 28-inch barrel feature a striking Cerakote Flat Dark Earth finish. The stock and forendare finished with Realtree MAX-5™ camo. The gunis chambered for up to 3.5-inch shells but cycles 2¾- and 3-inch shells equally well without adjustment. The Waterfowler 3500 also comes with a paracord sling.
Loading, unloading and operating the Model 3500 in cold weather is made easier by the oversized bolt handle and bolt-release button. A specially machined and beveled loading port makes feeding shells into the magazine tube with gloved hands quick and efficient. Rugged, weather-resistant construction and finish stand up to the worst conditions.
At the heart of the M3500 Waterfowler Special is the Inertia Driven operating system for ultimate reliable operation. The Inertia Driven action is contained primarily within the receiver, providing a better, more centered balance and swing. The receiver also stays cleaner longer.
Five (IC/M/XFT/Close Range/Mid Range) extended choke tubes along with a wrench come standard with the Waterfowler. A shim kit is also included, which allows for adjustment of the gun for drop and cast. The full-length vented rib is topped with an easy-to-see red-bar front sight that stands out in low light. The receiver is drilled and tapped for the addition of a scope.
