View Full Version : Xmas gift & Question
12-26-2004, 04:08 PM
On a happier note. Shot my cond sup 20 o\u Xmas day, 150 rounds no prob's. Had a ball, even hit a few clays. Anyone have time for only one dumb question? I had push the safety upwards ea time to get it off to fire. Is there a way to keep safety off or does it always automatically go on?

THE SAFETY SETS AUTOMATICALLY AFTER YOU BREAK OPEN THE GUN. iF IT IS RESETTING BETWEEN SHOTS THE SAFETY SPRING IS IN NEED OF REPAIR.

What I am saying is I take safety off shoot my 2 shots, reload 2 and and ready to fire again and safety is on again automatically. Nothing happening between shots. If this is normal I have to learn to deal with it. I also bought a used semi and when its off its off till I put it on again.
Am I ok??
Thanks to all

I believe that is the way the gun is supposed to function. It probably has an automatic safety which will reset after you shoot and open the action.

Thanks I think so too. I'm a retired NJ guy living in tx but lot of time spent in little town called Sharon ct. Its so cheap to live in tx and getting so expensive in the east dont think we can come back.

Yes, the safety automatically resets each time you break the gun open.
Like fezman said, if you're adventurous, you can defeat that function, but frankly I like it and it's what I'm accustomed to.

Fezman, since you seem to be one of if not the resident expert here on the Condors would you care to elaborate on the "how to" of disabling the auto safety? For sure I'd like to do that if my FFL guy ever gets mine in. I hate and despise auto safeties. Don't need the gun thinking for me. Not a biggie out in the field but on a skeet range I serious hate it.

its quite envolved because it is an internal and integeral part of the c0cking mecanisim and probley isnt the greatist idea anyway. i was accualy refering to the loose spring problem. since ive been involved with a few "incidents" im a bit of a safety fanatic. and quite frankly you do get used to it. i spent hours practicing closing the weapon and flipping the safety off in one motion now i dont evan notice it..... except last season when i missed a **** bird because it was on :rolleyes: but that was with my beretta

In the field I don't consider it as much a big deal as on the clays range. Especially on a skeet range I NEVER put a gun on safety until the round is over. Just keep it open and over my shoulder generally.
I guess this is now a mood point with me.
I had been looking for a Browning White Lightning 20 ga. 28" but my dealer said no way was it gonna happen. He hadn't seen one in over a year and said as far as he knew Browning hadn't shipped any in about that long. Said they were only shipping the higher grades at this time. Thought about the Beretta but just didn't like the feel as well. So I had decided to try one of the Condor Supremes until what I wanted became available.
The other day I walked in and what do I see sitting on the shelf? Yup a Browning Citori XS Sporting Clays 20 ga. and 28" barrels. Price was $1700 and it went home with me that day. So don't guess I'll be getting the Condor Supreme after all.
Didn't really need the XS grade as I really wanted it as much for a field gun as anything but will shoot skeet with it too I'm sure. For sporting clays I'll likely use my Beretta White Onyx more. Around here the range seem to think the proper way to add level of difficulty is by adding range. Some of them throw a few targets that really stretch the barrels.
But thanks for the info Fezman. Had I gotten the Condor I still might have given it a try as I do hate automatic safeties. Would rather think for myself than have the gun trying to decide when it needs to be on safe.
