Advice on an entry level O/U for busting clay
#1
All, I am looking for some advice on an entry level o/u for skeet / trap shooting. looking to spend up to $700 and currently considering the following three models:

Stoeger Condor ~$450

Tristar Hunter EX Shotgun ~$600

Mossberg Silver Reserve II Field ~$600

Stevens Model 512 Gold Wing ~$700

Looking for feedback from anyone that owns or used to own one of these models.

Looks like four choices to me .... Tongue

Anyway I had a Silver Reserve, not a bad gun but double barrel guns can get heavy if you plan to shoot a lot in one day. Most trap shooting is single shot. I do know that the Silver Reserve had issues with the firing pin breaking, mine did within a couple months of buying it. The shop I bought it from sent it out and had it repaired and it was fine after that. I have since sold it. I now use a semi auto with a shell catcher for doubles and do fairly well with it.

Thanks, I was thinking of getting an O/U so I don't have to count higher than 2...

agree on getting a semi. I mostly use a Beretta AL391 which is light, more accurate than me and gets annoyed if I clean it more than once a year. I think they are also now going somewhere near your budget.

I've got a Stoeger Condor that I bought used. We've put hundreds of shells through it without a problem. I'd recommend it.

How often are you looking to go?

Check out lcs supply. They have a nice gun for fair money.

I like Ruger Browning beretta o/u

But for semi.... Remington 1100

I have a Stoeger coach gun, which is sxs, but it has never failed on me and I can't really bitch about the fit and finish. If your going semi-auto I would have to say the A-5, they can be had for your price range...just watch for when it was made.

is older or newer bad as far as when it was made?
