TRI-Star O/U

I'm looking for reviews and feedback on the new Tri-Star hunter ex o/u shotguns. How are they for workmanship and durability. the price seems to be OK how do they pattern? any problems with the action or choke tubes? are they a good buy. thanks

Re: TRI-Star O/U

I looked into them a while back when I wanted to buy a new 12 bore. After reading reviews on line { Google the model your interested in} and handling them at a shop I spent the extra few bucks and bought the CZ shotgun. Much better gun for only a few bucks more.

Re: TRI-Star O/U

my dad just bought a tristar before the 2010 spring gobbler season....we got into these heavy shot mag blend shells and were shooting them out of our 870 super mags...he shot them in the tristar to pattern(only loading one at a time). he had it loaded and ready when i big gobbler came into him this spring...he fired at the gobbler and bother barrels went off at once(not suppossed to happen).needless to saw his shoulder hurt and there was pretty much no turkey there ...about a 10 yard shot wit 2 mag blends...well the primer of the shell was actually burnt clean out of the shell. some kinda mechanical issue that let both barrels go off at once....not a good deal at all

Re: TRI-Star O/U

for roughly the same money, maybe a hundred or two more, you can get a used 'good' gun - perhaps even something made here, older, but will outlast that turkey stuff in the long run.

Re: TRI-Star O/U

huntingbeaver is right. Buy a used browning,beretta,SKB,franchi or a ruger. These guns are built well and I would never hesitate to buy one used.
