The safety automatically resets to the "safe" position each time you open the action.
If you are trying to dry fire the gun, you won't get a "click" on the second trigger pull unless you turn the safety on, then back off, or if you bump the recoil pad firmly. This gun has an inertial reset trigger, which requires recoil from the first shot to reset the trigger mechanism for the second shot.
How does the trigger/safety work between shots? Just bought STF3000 and haven't gone to the range yet.
I'm not good with the internet. I read you're previous post. Understand the inertial trigger issue. Thank you.
If the gun works properly, you should be able to shoot two shots in succession without ever touching the safety.
I bought a Stoeger STF 3000 12 Ga from Dick's last month, bought a couple of Briley chocks (more open) and have been shooting sporting clays - having a blast. Some of my friends have been spending much more for their guns. I think this one is a great deal.
I picked up an STF 3000 lightly used from a local shop 2 months ago. I've personally put about 400 rounds through it with ZERO FTFs - but aside for 1 box of Winchester Universal I have shot exclusively the cheap Federal stuff from Walmart (Which I have been shooting for years through all of my 12ga's).
I am new to "Formal" skeet shooting but so far I have found the gun being limited by my ability and not the other way around. I really feel like I will be able to grow into it and have fun with it.
On a side-note can anyone send me the safety mod instructions they got from Tim? I left Tim a visitor message but he hasn't been on the forums since last week.
Been in Africa. No, I'm not kidding.
Drew, e-mail on its way to you.
I bought an STF 3000 at Dick's yesterday. When I put it together, the lever that opens the gun doesn't center when closed as I would expect. With the gun closed and looking down on the top, the lever is about at 5 o'clock rather than centered at 6 o'clock. Is this okay?
Yes, its fine. As long as the gun locks up firmly and there's no play between the barrel set and the receiver when its closed.

Greetings everyone!, longtime lurker posting here. I've been shooting a "plain jane" Condor for the last 4 years and haven't had any problems with it at all (normal cleaning, greasing and oiling). I just picked up an STF 3000 and am a little concerned with some of the reviews. Does it need a complete break down before the initial shooting or just a thorough cleaning? Thanks in advance.
