First Look: TriStar Bristol SxS 16-Gauge

posted on December 1, 2021

A year ago, TriStar Arms introduced its Bristol line of side-by-side shotguns, which offer the traditional elegance and functionality of a classic side-by-side at an affordable price that doesn't deter field use.

Now the English-stocked, color case-hardened model and the gold-adorned, laser-engraved Silver model are available in 16-gauge. Like the rest of the Bristol line, the 16-gauge model is on a true-to-gauge receiver. The new 16-gauge models include the same features as the rest of the line, including:
• auto ejectors 
• brass front sight 
• single selective trigger 
• chrome-lined chamber and barrel 
• select Turkish walnut stock 
• oil finish 
• 5 Beretta-style choke tubes (SK, IC, M, IM, F)

• Silver Walnut (38116) MSRP: $1,130 
• barrel length: 28"
