    Ranger m5 inertia opinion?

    Has anyone shot or handled the ranger m5 inertia from guncity? Tossing up between that or another stoeger 3000, would love an m2 bit ouch price tag!

    Can't find a review anywhere except gun city's own.

    Stay away from anything with Ranger in front of it, spend your hard earned coin on something that will last.

    Do you definitely want an inertia gun as there is a host of really good guns between those two prices

    Shit that doesn't sound good at all! I like the stoeger I have but it's just too long and the amount I'd get for it doesn't even cover half of a new one just to get a shorter barrel, if I could buy a new barrel I would but nowhere stocks replacements. The ranger seems like a good deal for $800 with an extended mag

    I guess I'll look at other options

    I'd look at other options. Can't seem to find a lot that comes in 24" though.

    Beretta 1301 comp. If youre into ipsc style shooting then its the best set up out of the box and ready to run gun available (although those bredas look pretty swish but ive never seen one in person) Comes in 21" and 24". You arnt losing much in a 21" as the mag extension will dictate length and velocity is more than adequate. If i had to shoot standard or modified div then i would buy a 1301 again over anything else. Just my humble opinion.

    Definitely far out of my budget unfortunately, setup isn't really an issue I'll just end up machining parts to suit..

    Well there you go. Run a hacksaw over it and get somebody to thread it for chokes. Looks like you got it sorted.

    An experienced chopper pilot that I shot with opening morning (good guy by the way) had an M2 there. He let the lad have quite a few shots out of it over the weekend.
    He reckoned it had shot over 5000 deer+rabbits+wallabies etc. He said it was good but he liked the M1 better. he didn't explain why as it was more of a preference maybe, but he had put a lot down range obviously.
    I asked him about them and he reckoned you could pick up a good second hand one for a grand or so. Not sure if that's accurate but Id much rather have a Benelli Mi than one of tipples knock offs.
    BTW the little short barrel was a loud sunofabitch lol.

    Purpose? If IPSC/Multi-gun I'd be asking in addition to reliability are there the after market mods you'll want. Extended mag tubes, enlarged controls etc. I'd go Stoeger if they were your two choices. Maybe Breda is in your price range. I'd avoid JM Pro.
