    can you discharge both barrels at the same time with double triggers or is that a Hollywood thing

    I don't know too much about these guns, but, the first shotgun I ever shot was a double brl. Front trigger one barrel, back both barrels. Lets say I learned the hard way how that worked.

    I like Stoeger, I have a SxS 12 gauge and I hope to acquire a O/U at some point. While this particular one isn't necessary for me I do like the plain coach guns!

    Yes, if you want to see how tough your shoulder is, you can pull both triggers at once. Not bad with field or trap loads but I wouldn't suggest doing it with 3" magnum buckshot loads.

    Yes, it is possible to do. As a note on that, the proper technique for a shotgun with two triggers involved only using one finger trigger (unless you are planning on shooting both barrels at once). My little brother found that one out the hard way.

    I like the finish on that coachgun, but could honestly do without the rails.

    +1. You won't do it too many times though... I've done it a couple of times with my Stoeger 20ga... don't know if I'd want to do it with a 12ga. very often....

    I had written this in another post...

    Here's what Coyote did for me...
    Honed the chambers so shells would drop out from gravity alone.
    Carefully removed sharp edges from around the breach face and the chamber mouths to reduce hangups.
    Modified the firing pin...sightly longer (this avoids a problem with Stoegers after may rounds)
    Smoothed up the internals, including a spring kit that made it easier to operate the lever that opens the gun. (The gun literally 'falls open'.)
    Disabled the automatic safety that engaged every time the gun was opened. The safety can still be engaged manually.
    Added a larger bead sight...for eyes in their 60's.

    When I got it back, it was a different gun. He took an inexpensive Stoeger and made it ready for competition...really smooth.

    Give him a call, he is well-known in the cowboy shooting arena.

    Hope this helps.

    I just looked at one of these today at a local gun shop here in the Twin Cities...

    Honestly, for a HD gun, I don't need the rail or all of the other crud on this.

    I do see great purpose in coach guns as a HD shotgun or as a truck gun.. just don't think they need all of the tacticool stuff on them to be effective ;)

    the rail under the barrels might be handy for a light or laser, but the top rail seems like it might be unnecessary. I wonder if it welded on or screwed? maybe you can just unscrew it??? I don't know I have not looked at one close up

    when I first saw this I wondered if they hired Gunkid ( anyone remember him) to design this.The more I think about it the more I want one.

    I've been wanting one of the all nickel Coach Gun Supremes for a while now but that Double Defense looks real good and more practical too. I don't want the sight but like the light and rails. Hmmm. I think it may be the ticket.

    I have my version:

    It has an XS tritium big dot front sight on it and I have installed sling swivels with a 5 shot stock cuff.



    I also carry it in bear/lion/wolf country when back country fishing.
