Picked one up years ago at Gander.Payed a little less than what your looking at. Its a good gun for light loads.The receiver started to eat into the butt stock from recoil. Not seated very well.. They take forever to get repairs done and they dont like to ship parts out. Go figure....

For the money they do a good enough job.....

I own a Stoger Condor O/U 2oga for the last 7yrs and have never had a single problem. Its been a fantastic gun for me. I've shot ducks, pheasant grouse and doves. I hope to add turkeys to that list in a couple weeks.

I honestly have never had a problem or complaint with this gun. When I bought it it was $400, but I can see that they've come down in price. It breaks down into 3 pieces for easy cleaning. I can use 2 3/4" shells or 3" rounds. Its very light and comfortable. I've never needed parts or repairs, but I have been able to find extra chokes for it pretty easily. Mine shows almost no wear at all.

I would recommend it to anyone. Its a great price for a nice Over/under. Once you own one you'll never want a pump gun again.

Kind of the Remington Express of o/u shotguns. Functional, and can be used as a boat paddle in emergencies. Nothing special, but it works. I'd save my money and look at an SKB, Beretta, or Browning.

There are a lot of stoegers out there thanks to the promotions by Gander. I talked to the mgr and he said not many problems have arisen with these. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. I shoot a red label, and have had it for many years, if I look for another shooter gun, it will most likely be the "express" of over unders. It's an easy choice for me, $300 vs $1300+.

If I'm in the market for a show gun, I'll spend the money, My guns are in a locked safe, not much show there!

Good luck, Brent

Call Gander MTN in Maple Grove, the guys there had a web site that you could get the chokes from. I threw it away last week. Brent

I found them at Cabelas and Gander. The thread patter is the Win-Browning-Mossberg pattern. Also called winchoke and the invector models (NOT invector plus) If a choke fits any of those patterns it will fit your Stoeger Condor O/U.

Borch has a link to a site that tells you what pattern every gun takes. Its in the turkey forum about chokes for my gun.

Matty,

If you have one of the new Condors it may have the Beretta/Benelli thread pattern. Once Benelli bought out Stoeger I know they switched some of that stuff over. Make sure to double check.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
