Stoeger’s Double Defense over/under shotgun is a straightforward, rugged and reliable home defense shotgun. Ideal for use in tight quarters and tense situations, the Stoeger Double Defense with its traditional break-action and short, efficient design is easy to load and quick to deploy in an emergency.
     A double-barrel shotgun has been the defensive firearm of choice for generations, but Stoeger has added practical, up-to-date features to the “tried-and-true” double gun. The Double Defense is chambered for 2-3/4- and 3-inch shells. The tactical-length 20-inch barrels feature fixed, improved cylinder chokes. The fast, single-trigger design and convenient, tang-mounted automatic safety makes the Stoeger Double Defense ideal for home security use.

     The Double Defense gun is outfitted with a green, fiber-optic front sight and comes standard with two Picatinny Rail accessory mounts. All metal surfaces are finished in matte blue and come complete with non-reflective matte black synthetic stock and forearm.

Excellent shotgun, very manegeable, you can not ask for more for that price, totally recommended

Shoots great, break action is tough though. Cleaned and lubed but never got easier to open. Not what I was wanting for home defense if I’m in a pinch. I only wanna have to fight the intruder not the gun too. As always the purchase process and shipping was easy and fast. Will definitely purchase from buds again.

As far as the review of Buds Guns: very fast shipping and easy to place an online order and pick an FFL dealer to ship too.
As far as the shotgun: it’s $420! It’s made in Brazil under the Stoeger name. There’s not a very high bar set for that price for a shotgun BUT it does carry a better brand name, so it should be a bit better fit finish. Hard to break open. Second barrel wouldn’t fire. Lever to lock/release barrels didn’t close all the way. Couldn’t load/unload bottom barrel without opening/pulling barrels down to fully open position.
And most disappointing was the hollow plastic(they call it synthetic) stock that comes on it when the description says wood!
But after a few hours of sanding/polishing it works very nice. I also filled the stock with epoxy which adds weight, gets rid of the hollow stock, and will make for a lower felt recoil.
Bottom line: it’s a $400 gun. Buy it, put the time in on finishing it. And it will serve its purpose.
Also: I’m SUPER glad I waited on this gun to come in at this price. I would be VERY upset if I had paid the $700 the local gun stores wanted for the side by side version.
Worth the $400 and a few hours of work to get it running right.
NOT worth the $700 the local dealers were asking.
PAY for the BUDS membership, get on the email list to notify you when it comes in stock, BUY it.
This gets 3 stars because although it is far better than the Chinese side by side coach gun I own, but thats not saying much, and also because of the long list of things that required modification to get it to function properly, let alone to open/close smoother.

This shotgun is okay. It looks cool but did not pass a function test straight from the box. Safety was course and was not allowing full engagement of the second sear. Locking pins on receiver into the barrel did not engage fully, causing the release lever to not fully return to center. The hand guard is very difficult to remove due to high spots in the plastic; rubbing against barrel. Now I have trading as a gunsmith with some tools and equipment so I was able to rectify all items and it works good now. So be prepared to call Stoeger/ go to a gunsmith/return item or yours may just be perfect. It is strictly a backup to get to something else.

I was very impressed with this shotgun, Barrels,Chokes, rails, sights, trigger, and I liked the auto resetting safety after a few shots I got used to it. The shotgun patterned very good. I dropped 2 stars from review due to when I went install a sling the plastic stock was so cheap/thin I could not locate a place to install. The stock is hollow and this seems work well to absorb full choke rounds. The thin design will limit you on installing sling and I don't see it lasting very long with normal use. I will look at replacing the stock with solid wood soon. As far as front sling mount I used a rail mount ring which worked out good. I would not have purchased if I had known about cheap stock with no sling mount location.

Easy - Easy - Easy. Great gun for beginners like me.
Easy to afford (paid $427.45/nice price Bud).
Easy to operate (no pump short shucking or semi-auto jamming),
Easy to arm - accepts 2 3/4 and 3 inch bird, buck and slug shells.
Easy to clean.
TactiCOOL.
Please note there is "confusion" regarding the wood vs. synthetic stock. Mine came in a synthetic stock.
Ordered at 7PM on Monday before Thanksgiving, Arrived at FFL dealer the following Monday morning. Great jobs Bud!

Absolutely love this shotgun!! Really enjoyable to shoot!! It has great style, looks tough as can be, has one of the most awesome cool-factors one could ask for, it has been highly accurate from the start and very fun to shoot. The recoil is not bad but we are shooting mostly 1-1/8oz. 2-3/4" shotshells and slugs. A few min's were fired off for joy as well. Only about 60 rounds down the tubes but to load once and fire twice is a little bit more fun than I imagined.
Would loved to have given this 12 ga a full 5 stars but there are a few quirks (most mentioned by other reviewers) that I wanted to share:
- - - Assembly Instructions were nearly useless. Turned out to be a piece of cake but I was ignorant to this style of shotgun, at first. This caused the forward assembly to get marred up until I wised up and realized I should just get on YouTube and have a gander. It really is quite dirty inside, upon arrival. Looks like it had been in a dirty coal mine for a couple days (but cleaned right up fairly easy). Those who found it hard to break open are not alone -- hoping in breaks-in more over time! Lastly, the Top Pica-tinny Rail blocks the front sight and causes it to shoot about 18-20 inches too high. Would need to change sights, remove rail or get an optic with enough adjustment to compensate. Thats it though -- none of which can deter us from enjoying the heck out of this thing. Its a really nice shotgun overall. I would buy it again and I recommend it fully (despite the few "temporary" shortcomings mentioned above).

Very solid firearm. As another reviewed stated, it is heavier than you think. After a VERY good cleaning and lubrication, the break open action got much smoother/easier. Upon arrival, it did have more grease on it than any other gun I have ever purchased. Not a show-piece, but very functional, and built like a tank. I'll be able to hand it down to my son when the time comes. Good price, and shipped fast.

Gun was brand new no issues and the transaction from start to finish was super easy. Thanks again Buds!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just picked it up a few hours ago. First impressions. Looks sharp, very "tacticool". Heavier than I thought. One of my rails is not attached correctly its a little lop sided. You really have to WACK the forearm in place to lock everything together. The action is super stiff, may have to be smith'd to allow for easy of use. Needed a serious cleaning right out of the box. But overall im happy with it, its exactly what I expected at this price point and it is really badass looking. Going to shoot in a few days so I'll give my thoughts after I get back.
