do a search here lots of threads. I had been looking as well, but read too many issues with the bottom firing pin and having to send back for repair,etc... I read that they fixed the issue with the new ones,but the old ones are still out there. also looked at the stoegers but similiar hit or miss issues with them.

anyway, some have had no problems, but others have had lots. I ended up just keeping on using my citori as my main gun when at the range and got another 11-87 for birds in the field.

thanks for the answer.i've been doing a lot of reading around about the s/r and the condor.i visit other forums and you mainly hear about problems not success stories. i'm not a total noob to shooting just getting back into it after 20 some odd years away from it. and just seeking others thoughts on things. but whatever i get i'll be happy cause it's mine and i'm busting clays again. take care and be safe.

FWIW, I have not heard of a problem on any S/R made after June 2007....

Ask to see the box it was shipped in, it will have a "packaged on" date...

I don't think it was breaking the pin. I think it had to do with the lower portion of the receiver where the firing pin would come out of alignment or something like that. Do a search here if you want to know for sure. Otherwise they are nice looking guns (even if they are made in Turkey) and they seemed to handle fairly well for me (not even close to my citori, but good for a $400 O/U).

Also, might want to look into a S/S, I see some used ithaca's and h&R's in the $400 range and they are work horses.
