Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

Looking at getting a light weight over under, shotgun

came across these two models, any insight on these two. I love the looks of the Mossberg, but the Stoeger is a lot less money, I am not one to buy cheap guns, but just figured I would see if someone had shot either of these two.

Re: Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

I was in your shoes last year and look at both of those and read lots of reviews. The Stoeger really seemed like junk the few times I handled them. I didn't mind the way the Mossberg felt but I read enough bad reviews to concern me. I ended up getting a CZ Canvasback which was a little more money than the Mossberg but not much. I paid $670 for mine and I love it. I've shot it probably close to 1000 rounds and have not had an issue with it yet.

I had a Stoeger that I traded off, I shot 3 pheasants with it with no problems.

Can't go wrong with the CZ.

Must say I also have a Silver Reserve. Nice wood but it is pretty chunky compared to my CZ.

Re: Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

Another vote for the CZ's............I have handled the Mossberg's and they are awfully heavy for a double gun, and the Stoegers are well, Stoegers.....

Re: Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

Held the Mossberg in 28 ga today. Loved it! It will be a grouse gun. The 20 was nice but the 28 was awesome.

Got a reference to an ATI Calvary. Was told its 100 less than the missberg and a lot more to look at

Re: Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

When I was looking for 410 o/u the stoeger was alot heavier to me than the moss.

Be honest with yourself

Re: Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

My two cents, if you want break action cheap get a Stoeger. I've owned just about all the low end SxS's out there(never owned a Moss.). They are all pretty chincy, but nothing has handled or functioned better than the Stoeger that I traded in. I currently have a Rem Spartan that I think is an absolute piece of junk, but I really need a SxS for upland. Don't ask me why, when I take my auto's or pumps out I can't hit the broad side of a barn if I were standing inside.

I was looking at the low end O/U's last summer as a trap/sporting clays gun. I picked up the CZ's and American Tactical Imports and while they were a little thinner and lighter they still felt just as poorly assembled as the Stoegers. I ended up saving up my money and buying a Browning Cynergy. Best decision I ever made.

But if I can ever find an old fixed choke Stoeger I'll drop kick that Spartan right in the trash.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

Re: Stoeger Condor & Mossberg Silver reserve

You should take a look at the Steven's 512 Goldwing. It's a really nice gun for the price, I like it better than the mossberg and the stoeger.
