As long as you realize that the Tristar is not a half-price Beretta, you should be happy with it's performance.

Remember that all shotguns are not created equal.

Before you buy, you might want to check with the local gunsmiths and see if they will work on it, and can get parts in a reasonable amount of time. Would be sad if you had to send it 1000 miles away the first time it malfunctions.

If you prefer a wood stock you might give the Yildiz A71 a look. It comes in 12 or 20 with decent walnut stock and clean checkering. I just bought a new 20.MAG with 5 chokes for $400 and have been pleasantly surprised. The workmanship and fitting is very good and functioning has been excellent. You can only get them at Academy and Briley handles the warranty work and makes the choke tubes.

Thought he was an Escort pimp not TriStar???

I just realized they make a true lefty. I'm going to get one regardless. I think wholesale is under $500. At that price, I will use and abuse it til it quits. 5 year warranty I believe.

I bought a Tristar youth 20ga for my son last year and he's shot about 2 cases of steel and about 4 cases of lead through it with no problems. We cleaned the gun soon after we bought it,cleaned it before season started last year and once during the season after it got SOAKED in the rain and its been great. If they all are as good as this one has been you'll get a good gun.
Nobody gives a crap about your season totals.

Your right, I got it mixed up. I'll be quiet from now on.

My younger brother has a tristar 3.5 semi auto he got from a guy at a gun show for $300. I've used it a few times and I really like it. It's light, low recoil, and pretty accurate. The only problem we had was it was not cycling shells through but we cleaned it and oiled it and it shoots flawlessly. If I ever find one for a good deal, I'll probably buy it. On a side note, he shoots left handed and handles it very well. He's very inexperienced in waterfowl hunting but last season he was pulling off a lot of 2 shot doubles. He seems to get back on target very quickly after the first shot. It patterns very well with 3in #2 Xperts with a modified factory choke. He's dropped geese and a swan with it. I like that it will cycle the light 2 3/4 dove loads and the 3.5 loads.

The guy is Chad Belding. He has two shows on the cable network. One is Waterfowling and the other is Dead Dog Walking-a predator hunting show.

He is popular but many do not care for him.

I don't know much about the TriStar guns but it seems the Viper G2 is a 2nd generation version of their gas gun.
