After several years of interest in the CG lineup, the stars lined up out of the blue today and I am the owner of a used but very nice Summit sporting 12 with 32 inch barrels. Gun has been owned by two guys at my local club purchased new by one of them. Neither guy ever shot it much.

Just casual conversation during a tournament round today with the fellow that owned the gun currently. I mentioned to him that I was considering buying a CG and he tells me I should look at the safe queen he brought with him. We made a deal. He offered a very fair price and I brought it home.

I will call CG in Maryland this week and give them the serial number and see if it is eligible for a pit stop check up. I will also have them do the release trigger conversion that I will need and hopefully have it back to begin shooting and getting to know it in December and beyond.

Congrat's on getting the CG. I'm pretty sure that the pit stop program is only for the original owner. When I got my Magnus, used, a couple years ago I called and got the impression they were familiar with mine for some reason and said that they would do a one-time pit stop. It hasn't given me any problems so it's still at home. :D

As for release triggers, I'm seriously not a fan. I have a hand tremor that sometimes will pull a trigger before I'm ready and very knowledgeable instructor suggested looking into them, and I told him that I'd quit shooting before going over to the dark side.

Hi Dave

Congratulations on the new purchase. I think you will be very happy. I have been very happy with my Maxum Impact. One of my students just bough5. Summit Sporting and it is a very nice gun.

Stay safe. Hopefully I will see you guys soon, been missing the great shoots at Hermon and Scarborough.

We miss seeing you and Ian at our events and hope things improve soon so you can make the long journey to shoot with us. Best to you, Dave

I am pretty excited about the purchase. It will be a very nice addition to my gun safe.

Release triggers aren't the dark side. It is just a different piece of equipment that is as safe and reliable as any pull trigger. It is just different. The user needs to know how to operate it and safe the gun if needed which is easy. Just open the gun on a double or pull the bolt out of battery on a gas gun. I have used them for 8 years. That is 8 years of shooting enjoyment competing that I would have not had otherwise. Valued times shooting with my son and other friends. I am 58 and hopefully will have 20 plus more years shooting competitively.

Certainly my shooting life would be simpler if I had not had to go the route I did but here I am. I was a struggling severely with flinching in B class. Over time after the switch, i slowly made my way to Master though I will probably take the down class back to AA for 2021. I have had a ton of fun along the way and have no regrets.

An update. My Summit arrived back from CG's shop in Maryland this week. They installed factory release triggers for me and did perform a pit stop on the gun. When I talked to the office, as a second owner they indicated that labor would be at no charge for the pit stop but I would be responsible for any required parts. In the end though, there was no charge for anything to do with the pit stop. I am very pleased with that level of customer service. Beyond expectation.

I was away from home on business until last night so took the gun out of the case and checked it over and put it together. Everything looked and felt great. Tested the release triggers using my snap caps and those felt and worked well.

And today I had an opportunity to test run the gun with first shots fired through it in a registered event at one of my primary clubs....Scarborough Fish and Game. My wife asked me if I was sure I wanted to shoot the gun for the first time in a competition and logically she was right to ask but emotionally, there was no way I wasn't taking the gun and shooting it :D

I only shot the main event today but am really pleased with how the gun handled for me and worked excellent as I expected it to. My other O/U has 30 inch barrels and balance and handle are not nearly as nice as this gun with the 32's. I like the more slender fore end and the length of pull is spot on perfect for me out of the box. I have lost 25 pounds this year and my other competition guns I have shot for several years each began to feel foreign and I was getting a bad habit of coming off the gun. Since the clubs had come back on line, I had really been struggling and shooting poorly. I didn't have any issues keeping my head on the stock and I moved the gun well. I scored an 84 which felt pretty solid overall. Anxious now to continue my work getting to know the new gun and getting my game back in order again.

Very pleased with my new to me CG Summit Sporting.
