It has a nice feel. Takes Beretta/Benelli Mobil chokes. I never handled a Beretta or Franchi, but I've read a few places that it is very similar to an A 300. Not sure how true that is. Definitely not the quality of a Beretta, but for $297, it seems pretty decent.I never handled a TriStar but it looks an awful lot like a Franchi Affinity.
