I've been very pleased with the Tristar semi-auto's, but I wasn't nearly as impressed with the O/U. I've handled a newer Tristar Setter in 20ga and the Stevens in 12ga, and while they both felt a little chintzy, I felt the Stevens was the better of the two. If you have the means, I'd sooner track down a Browning Citori, but you'd probably get respectable service out of the Stevens.
I will throw out the disclaimer that when I shot the aforementioned Setter, I swapped my BIL my Citori for his Setter for a few rounds of sporting clays, and they're apples and oranges as far as overall fit and quality. I may have liked the Setter more had I started the day shooting it.
