Low prices on the Stoeger Coach Gun start at Champion Firearms- Founded in 1924 as a manufacturer, distributer and importer of firearms, today Stoeger is a wholly owned subsidiary of Benelli, which in turn is owned by Italian firearms powerhouse Beretta.
The sawed-off, double barrel shotgun became such a fixture among stagecoach guards in the Old West that—regardless of the manufacturer—all became known as "Coach Guns". The sawed-off shotgun has been romanticized in hundreds of Hollywood Westerns and is as practical as it was handsome. The Stoeger Coach Gun is a side-by-side shotgun that was developed in response to the demand for a value-priced, short-barreled scattergun for use in Cowboy Action Shooting.
The Stoeger Coach Gun has dual triggers, one for each barrel. The tang safety is located on the upper rear part of the receiver. Opening the action automatically engages the safety. To comply with Cowboy Action Shooting regulations, the gun does not have ejectors-- but it does have mechanical extractors. Even though the Stoeger Coach Gun has become a mainstay for Cowboy Action Shooters, it has also found a huge following among non- competition shooters looking for a simple, reliable and affordable home defense shotgun.
