I received an uplander in 20 gauge as a 17th birthday present. It's my first gun! The weapon itself is spartan, though that's by no means a bad thing. No automatic ejectors, no external hammers, no engraving or frills. And that's what I like about it. This is a no-nonsense firearm suitable for a variety of applications, including clay shooting and hunting. Mine has functioned flawlessly with target loads, buckshot, and slugs, and is overall a robust and dependable tool. Recoil is present and somewhat harsher than I'd expect- I employ a recoil-reduction pad as a countermeasure. It's simple, reliable, and cheap- and it gets the job done. A feature I especially appreciate for versatility's sake is the 3 inch chambers. I highly recommend it as a first or basic gun for those beginning to hunt waterfowl or shoot clays, but be aware that this one isn't exactly going to end up a family heirloom. For that and for social work, please turn to something with a higher capacity or featuring more of a quality construction.

I recently won an Uplander Supreme 20 gauge at a banquet.The gun looked good and had a good balance, but when I took the gun to the range a few days later the first shot was a misfire. The firing pin on the right barrell doesn't strike the primer hard enough. The left barrel fires fine, but you have to fire on the right barrel at least twice to get an adequate strike on the primer. For a 20 gauge it also seems to kick pretty hard. Since I won the gun at a banquet It doesn't qualify for the warranty as listed on the Stoeger website. I'll get it to my local gunsmith and see if that improves my impression of the gun.

I have a 20 guage Uplander Special (english stock, nickel reciever, 24") I've used exclusively for more than 5 years. It has been in the field over 100 times and taken dozens of pheasants, quail & rabbits with no problems.

I HAVE OWNED AN UPLANDER 20 GA 26INCH BARRELL FOR OVER 2YRS , HAVE HAD MANY OTHER MFG'S GUNS WINCHESTER ,REMINGTON , STEVENS ,MOSSBERG AN SUCH USED THIS UPLANDER TO HUNT SUCH GAME AS BIRD, RABBIT AS WELL AS WHITE TAIL DEER. THE GUN HAS CHANGEABLE CHOKES. OF WHICH I PERFER TRU-LOCKS , THE GUN HAS BEEN FLAWLESSIN TWO HUNTING SEASONS AN I HUNT ALOT. FOR THE MONEY AN BEING A SO CALLED SIX-PACK HUNTER. OWNING A STOEGER IS LIKE OWNING A HYUNDAI. IT NOT ALWAYS WHAT YOU PAY IT 'S HOW WELL YOU TAKE CARE OF IT.

EVERYONE I KNOW WHO HAS ONE OF THESE HAS HAD SOME SORT OF ISSUE. FIT, FINISH AND OVERALL BUILD QUALITY IS HORRIBLE IN MY OPINION. THIS ISN'T A FORD OR CHEVY IT'S A YUGO, THE CZ'S ARE FORD'S AND CHEVY'S (AND NO I'M NOT A FAN OF THOSE EITHER). SAFE UP AND BUY A USED BROWNING OR BERETTA OR AN UGARTECHEA FROM SPAIN. WELL WORTH THE EXTERA TIME AND INVESTMENT.

I BOUGHT A 12 GAUGE UPLANDER IT LOOKS GOOD AND SHOOTS GOOD AND FEELS GOOD IN MY HAND HOWEVER IT HAD A MISFIRE PROBLEM. IT MISFIRED ABOUT TWICE A BOX OF SHELLS. THEY SENT IT OFF AND IT CAME BACK MISFIRED EVERY OTHER SHOT. SENT OFF AGAIN AND THE SENT A NEW ONE IT MISFIRED TOO. I LEARNED THAT THE TRIGGER ASSEMBLY COMES DIRTY WITH SHIPPING SILICONE. I CLEAN THE TRIGGER ASSEMBLY THEN IT DID ALOT BETTER. IT STILL MISFIRES EVERY SO OFTEN. I THINK IF I SENT IT OFF AGAIN IT WOULD NOT DO BETTER. IF I HAD DO OVER AGAIN I WOULD I WOULD SAVE MY MONEY AND GET A BETTER GUN LIKE A CHARLES DAILY OR CZ.

I bought the standard double trigger 26" Stoeger Uplander in 12 gauge with removable choke tubes about 1-1/2 years ago. The break open action is very stiff when new. It gets a little better over time, but there are smoother actions out there I'm sure. Mine doesn't have a factory recoil pad which means time at the trap/skeet range gets painful rather quick when you're just wearing a light shirt. I did add a leather velcro-attached recoil pad which helps things considerably. I also added a Williams Firesight to help out my vision since you have two barrels around the front sight. My Uplander shoots well, I hit targets as well as I am capable of. Learning the double trigger set up isn't too hard either. It's built as ruggedly as any sporting gun I've seen and I'm expecting to own this shotgun for decades. The gun range guys look at me a little funny since I'm not sportin' a Benelli auto or at least some American pump gun. That was the point, though. I wanted an "old school" side by side shotgun that is modern enough with the auto-safety engagement without external hammers. Considering this gun's price it gets a "5" from me.

I purchased a Stoeger uplander 20 guage about 3 weeks ago. My dad had bought a stoeger coach gun and i enjoyed it but wanted something with longer barrels. I wanted a 12 guage but my wife has gained interest in shooting clays also. For the money the gun looks and preforms very well. My wife had 3 misfires shooting low recoil shells, but I haven't had a single misfire shooting several different 20 guage loads. I am planning to buy another double barrel, wheather it is a side by side or o/u it will probly be a stoeger. I enjoy out shooting someone who has spent a fortune on over priced shotguns so they can look good.

i dont know about the huntability of them but i had a coach gun sxs it was nice to me i put a few hundred rounds through it but i got rid of it because i was not happy with the 20 gauge. the only thing is that the action was very tight

gspspinone, If you don't own one of these shotguns and haven't fired it or carried it in the field, your opinion carries little weight. Have one of your acquaintances come here and write their review, which will surely be better than 1 bullet on the vote tally. For anyone else that wants other opinions.... http://grayssportingjournal.com/graysbest04/stoeger.shtml or google it. For the Stoeger owners that are willing to tune the Uplander a bit..... http://www.marauder.homestead.com/files/Stoeger.html

In response to jknutson, buy the darn thing! You won't be dissapointed.

I welcome any comments concerning the huntability of a Stoeger Upland Supreme sidexside 20 ga. I am fully aware that it isnt the gun and craftmanship of Browning, CZ, or L.C. Smith. But is it a dependable functioning tool that can be relied on for years of service?
