New Gun

Postby DUKHTR » Fri Jan 21, 2005 12:51 pm

While out scouting yesterday I got the urge to get a new piece....so I traded my new 12 ga Stoeger Condor Supreme for a 20. What a sweet little gun......I wish I had gotten the twenty last year instead of the 12....TIP: Do not customize a gun if you really want to get top dollar on a trade...I had cut the stock down and replaced the butt plate on the 12 and that dropped the trade-in about 9%.... I guess if I had sold it myself I would have gotten the top dollar it deserved at 98%, but no hassle is worth it to me......so, if you are looking for a good 'utility' 12 ga OU, stop by KTP soon. I'm happy, but wish I had given the 20 more thought last spring.

Congrats on the new gun,I think I remember you saying something about trading the O/U when we were out on little bay last month.Sounds like new gun is just the ticket. :thumbsup:
We'll have to go bust some clays with it later on,I'll bring my RRL. :mrgreen:
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.

Lesson learned about the stock....I would like to reduce the LOP on the 20 too, but will not alter the wood, rather, I think I will take off the pad and install a hard plastic butt plate if I can find one that will fit the factory stock. I'll look at Brownells....anyone else know of a good source? I think the tough part will be getting one for a Stoeger....I know they make specific plates for Remington, Browning and other more popular pieces.
