I was poking around in a gun shop yesterday and saw a very interesting piece. A 12-ga. over and under shottie with a real short barrel.
A Stoeger Outback.
It is very appealing - very easy to handle, about the right length of pull, quick pointing, & etc.
What's more, the price was right and I've got a ship or two approaching port...
Does anyone have any experience with these? If so, please share.
Talk to me, friends...
Firearms - Condor Outback - Stoeger Industries
They seem to have a good rep from the people I have talked too.
I have been eyeing one of there side by side coach guns for some time now my own self.
I have the Stoeger Coach Gun (in Nickle)...
I had already known that they were not an expensive gun, but I found a place on the I-Net called "Coyote Cap"...he does makeovers on coachguns.
I bought the Stoeger and spent another $175 on a makeover...now it's a sweet home SD gun.
Stay armed...stay safe!
I dont know anything about that model... but it sure looks pretty cool. What are they selling for?
I found this one (and no one go beat me to it now, no fair) for $ 299.00.
I'm thinking it's layaway time tomorrow morning....
The Stoeger shotguns are made in Turkey on very modern equipment - using high quality materials by some really talented folks.
They are made there to save on labor costs.
They seem to be a very good value for the money.
I have one of their side-by-side doubles.....(I should say had, my father has taken it for their home defense shottie). This would make an excellent replacement.
Good firearm that you aren't afraid to hurt, like some of the more expensive doubles & OUs....:hand10:
20 inch barrel, screw in chokes, iron sights & MSRP $369!!!!!
Well, I was going to lay it away, but I had recently paid off my credit card, and they dropped the price a whole $ 11.00, so I yielded to temptation.
Initial impressions: it's a little different from my Stoeger Coach Gun. To begin with, there is only one trigger (no biggie). The bottom barrel fires first, which makes the plan TAP buckshot in the bottom and a tactical slug on top. Again, no biggie, and I knew about that before I went to get it. It has rifle sight on it, too (knew that, too).
It is more solidly built, the wood is of higher quality and the action is more smooth.
The biggest difference is that the safety (tang safety, just like the Coach Gun) re-engages after the first (lower barrel) shot, and must be pushed forward again to fire the second shot.
As differences go, that is not a very big one. It will be a little bit of an adjustment, though.
That, however, is NOT a bad thing. It just means more trigger time at the range!
Wow that's some beautiful wood for a $300 gun! I paid $250 for a side-by-side one time and it was ugly. Looks nice!
Nice fiddle-back grain in the wood!!!
Enjoy the shottie...it make a great 'welcoming committee' for home intruders...
Hmmm.... I may have to take a look at those. I have heard mixed feelings on stoegers, but I think the bad rap comes from the price. Thats a beauty of shotty for the price though. I was eyeballing their nickel gun.
