    here is my stoeger condor 12ga O/U shotgun. this one i refinished the wood on last year. the metal was in very good condition, but the wood had that poyurethane type clear on it. i like the oil finished satin look much better.

    That is a very nice O/U. Nice pictures.
    I have a friend that has a Stoeger Condor 20 ga. O/U that I have shot more than once. I liked it sooo much that I added it to my Want List.
    My collection has gotten smaller and my "want list" is really short but the Condor Bug has bitten. We'll see what happens???

    Nice gun.

    I like a good Stoeger myself. This is a 20 gauge stainless receiver Coachgun with modified and full removable choke tubes. Hand-made black mycarta buttplate. Walnut is hand rubbed to remove the cheapee factory gloss shine. Its the only shotgun I kept. It also has Stainless Longhunter firing pins. http://www.longhunt.com/gunparts/stoeger.htm

    That is a sharp looking S/S. Thanks for sharing.
    I once owned a 20 ga. Savage B model Fox. That may have been one that I should have kept but my Beretta serves me well. Things come and go.
    I'm thinking that Stoeger is a keeper.

    thanks grey, i picked up the stoeger last year, it was used and in good condition, for about $325. i really like it and shoots great, and now i would like to get one in 20ga to match it. i used to shoot sporting clays in Houston years ago and wanted to get back into doing it again next spring was the reason for buying it, plus i have always had a soft spot for O/U shotguns.

    johnny, you did about the same thing as i did on mine. i too didn't like the glossy look to the stock, and buy sanding it down and refinishing it, it brings out the natural grain much better.

    My Stoeger...

    Very nice axxe55 and JohnnyLoco...

    I too own a Stoeger...an Uplander in 12gauge, my first shotgun...and the first firearm I ever took a deer with. She sports American walnut furniture and two 26" side x side blued and ribbed barrels with a brass bead sight that are choked IC and M. She is chambered for 2 3/4 or 3" shells.

    JL,
    Did you replace the pins or did you have someone else do it? Curious because my favorite pheasant loads are Rem's. When it gets below 32 degrees the stock pins in my Uplander like yours won't reliably set them off. I talked to Stoeger about the problem. They were the ones who told me the Rem primers are tougher and will do that in cold weather. Sounds weird but the Fiocchi pheasant loads perform perfectly in cold weather.

    Just curious if you think those firing pins would solve the problem and if you tried their spanner wrench to replace them.
