  1. Ok received the shotgun back from Benelli USA took to the skeet range Station no #1 hi house hit. Low house hit, doubles hi house hit then FTE, Shell caseing stuck, could not get the shell to release. Was about to get my shell extractor, (piece of 1/4 dowel rod) when blowing on the open barrel caused the lower ejector to pop the case out. Ok figured Benelli USA cut them some slack, then on sta #6 it did it again. I bagged the gun up and retired the shotgun, finished the round with my A300. I dont know about this shotgun, but I do know I cant take this gun anywhere near real competition as it is un reliable. Thanks all its been an experiance. JDS

  14. Guys, Some thoughts and observations regarding my Condor Competition 12ga 30” bbl shotgun. Bought the gun new from Gander Mountain Saturday Feb 8th, 2014 Dallas, Texas. Took the gun home cleaned it and oiled it ready to shoot the next weekend. Saturday Feb 15th 2014 ran 175 rounds of trap thru it. One FTE cause by stuck cartridge case. One fail to close caused by the lock lever closed before the bbls closed [*]Entered my first Sporting Clays event Elm Fork Winter Classic. Had one FTF light strick on lower bbl. One FTE stuck case. [*]Thoroughly cleaned the gun and today put 75 rounds of 5 stand and practice trap Had one failed to close caused by lever closed before the bbl closed. Stock is loose causing noise and clicking sound. [*] I plan to shoot this gun all of 2014 thru the sporting clays tournaments here is North Texas, I don’t know if the gun will make 10,000 rounds in 2014 as that’s 200 rounds a week for 52 weeks and that is allot of shooting. The gun shoots nice, points well and feels as good as my buddies Browning 725 Citori. The balance is good as the gun swings very nice and does not bounce or teter when tracking a clay, The adjustable comb is easy to work with and stable., The chokes that come with it are 6 extended full, mod, IC and two flush IC and Mod 8 chokes in all. The gun is heavy it says 7.9 lb in the book but it’s more like 8.3 lb the extra weight makes for almost no recoil and that’s nice after 100 rounds. I still plan to use my Beretta A300 as backup as I don’t quite trust this gun to get the job done. Thanks Johnny
