    I've been eyeballing one of these for a while. I have the field version I picked up a couple years ago on a whim and was very pleased with it. I had a Stoeger 2000 I had set-up for informal 3-gun, but sold it the week before things went to hell in December.

    Since the wife and I did really good on our tax returns, I thought it was time to replace the Stoeger. Buds finally had one, so I snatched it up. Got it home, gave it a good clean and started to order some goodies. Picked up a Nordic +3 Ext and a Nordic barrel clamp. Took it out today to break it in with 35 3" waterfowl loads. It ran perfectly, so I decided to let it cool off, then ran 20rds of federal target loads through it without a hitch.

    I really love these CZ's. They're the best bang for your buck in an auto loader IMO.

    Thanks. It's a 20" barrel with an extended choke tube

    Was that a typo or did you run into issues with the target loads?

    Nice looking repeater.

    Yup, that was a typo. No problems with the target loads.

    Good to hear. If you had to take a guess, how many rounds do you have through the field version over the past few years?

    Over the past few years, I'd guess anywhere between 1,000-1,250. Never had 1 failure with it.
