Besides the 3000 being drilled and tapped for a weaver mount, that is all I am seeing really. Both are Inertia Driven, but the 3000's weigh a bit more.
Maybe the recievers are steel and not aluminum?? Thats my best guess.
Thanks, I just don't understand why they would make a whole new gun with only a scope mount
Probably to pick up more turkey hunters. A lot of them are starting to use an optic. There is a sizable weight difference though. Over half a pound. I am willing to bet that the initial Stoeger 2000's had an aluminum alloy receiver to shave off weight. They probably went to the steel to make it stronger, more durable, and easier holding up for a scope mount.
