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.

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
