Re: Tristar Shotguns.

I can't speak for the semi-auto but I have a TriStar Setter ST O/U 12 gauge that I use for birds and trap. Absolutely love this gun! Points well, swings nice, accurate, minimal felt recoil, and a comfortable weight to carry all day while upland bird hunting. It looks great too. Some guys won't buy TriStar because they're made in Turkey but I've heard good things about their guns. Hope this helps.

Marlin 336CS .30-30
Beretta A300 Outlander 12 ga.
Mossberg International Silver Reserve II 12 ga.

Re: Tristar Shotguns.

A friend of mine just picked up the O/U, very very nice gun for the money. I've also heard good things about the semi autos but do not have any hands on experience with them.

Re: Tristar Shotguns.

i have a .410 o/u that I have used for 5 years for rabbit hunting. really nice little gun. had some issues with it and sent it back twice, but they took care of it very quickly for me. great customer service. I would own another one. there's been a lot of good guns come out of turkey for many, many years.

Re: Tristar Shotguns.

I have a 20g O/U. It has a canted stock which surprised me. Fits me well but my lefty buddy doesn't shoot it well because of the stock.The only issue I have is that it does not break open 100%. You have to hold it open to load or manually remove shells, a bit of a pain. Ejects spent shells well
