This year’s SHOT Show may be a little different, ok that’s an understatement but as usual, there’s a healthy range of new shotguns being released. Maryland-based Stoeger have announced the addition of a synthetic stocked version of their Condor over/under. The new synthetic Stoeger Condor comes in at $349 (MSRP) making it an interesting option for a slick, robust, affordable over/under.
Check out Stoeger’s announcement below:
ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 19, 2021) – Stoeger introduces its clay shooting and hunting Condor Field shotgun in a weather-resistant synthetic stock to help new shooters jump into competitive shooting and hunting at an affordable price. With many new shooters deterred from competition and hunting due to costs, the Condor Field Synthetic provides a reliable platform to jumpstart a new hobby or activity.
“The future of shooting and hunting relies on getting new shooters into the field or clays course,” said Tim Joseph, vice president of Brand Marketing. “One of the main reasons people forego taking on one of these hobbies is the associated costs. The Condor Field in synthetic delivers high performance offered by the over-and-under platform at a price that is soft on the wallet. The Condor Field provides versatility by offering a dual-purpose shotgun for both the shooting line and the field.”
The Condor Field offers the performance of a fine over-and-under shotgun at a fraction of the price. The shotgun’s textured synthetic stock ensures a good grip in foul weather. A crisp, single trigger facilitates quick shooting while the tang-mounted safety offers convenient switching. Smooth swinging and easily shoulder mounted, the Condor Field performs in all conditions.
The raised rib and bead sight ensure quick target acquisition while the extractors provide quick shell removal. The Condor Field’s machine-turned, monobloc sides provide durability with a tight lock up for reliability on the range or in the field. The synthetic model is available in 12 gauge with a 28-inch barrel and comes with screw-in Modified and Improved Cylinder chokes. It shoots both 2-3/4 and 3-inch shells.
