Default Stoeger Condor, Bailkal, or Mossberg Silver reserve?

Hi all. I am about to pull the trigger on a side by side or over and under. I am looking at 3 inexpensive o/u, all foreign made.
1. Stoeger Condor is about 300 bucks on sale at bass pro. Single
trigger, removable chokes and 3" capabilty. Brazillian made
2. Mossberg Silver reserve. About 500 bucks. Turkish
3. Bailkal. about 300 bucks and russian.
All three have removable chokes which is important.
Does anyone have any experience with any of these?

I bought a baikal side by side the other day and it seems to shoot good. From what I've seen it seems to be well made.

the mossberg has prolly the best looks but it has had the most problems...I would go for the Baikal if I were you...but its totally up to you...

I agree with the above. Everything I have read or heard leads me to believe the baikal or remington spartan ( pretty much the same gun) is the better value in inexpensive O/U shotguns.

I own a sparton single shot and it is pretty decent for the money, under 100 bucks. It could look a bit nicer, but it functions just fine. And the O/U are much nicer.

I actually won the Stoeger over and under at a Ducks Unlimited banquet. I have shot the game at doves and skeet alot and I have been very happy with it. Hell not like I could complain I won everything under the sun that night. Basically got the gun for free.

Ill say one thing- I looked at a mossberg silver reserve today- looked at both the stoeger condor and the remingon spartan 310 yesterday, and the stoeger is lighter than the remingon, the remington is the heaviest of them all- too heavy I think- its 500- the stoeger felt good but had steamed checkering which isnt worth a hoot because its smooth not rough- 300, the remington had good checkering rough and scratchy. The mossberg was around 500 and was decent, great pointing gun steam checkering but it was decent, heavier than the stoeger but ligher than the remington. I personally would get a remington if I had to choose. But I myself am about to purchase either a used verona for bout 550-600 or an American Arms Silver lite II for about 525-575.
