Anyone tried a Stoeger Condor Youth 20 ga?

My 14 year old has grown to love all of the shooting sports I have introduced him to but I have yet to take him to the shotgun range. I'd like to introduce him to trap/skeet/sporting clays and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Stoeger Condor Youth 20 gauge. I gave no experience with Stoeger at all except for looking at them in the gun store. Obviously they are no Beretta or Browning, etc. but are they worth the $400 for an over/under 20 gauge? I already have a Remington 11/87 compact/youth 20 ga. that is my preferred method of flinging pellets into the air but I think a double might be a better first shotgun. By the way, the little single shots would not be my first choice. Your thoughts are always appreciated.

That 11-87, if it fits him, should do just fine for starting out. You may want to go to the gun club and see if they have guns for rent, or if folks will let him borrow some guns to try before buying. Stoeger's rep is not the most stellar out there for reliability
