NRA Gun of the Week: TriStar Viper G2 SR Sport

posted on September 30, 2015

Last year, TriStar Arms expanded its Viper G2 semi-automatic shotgun line to include a new 12-gauge sporting model: the SR Sport. Designed with clay pigeons and upland game in mind, it was designed to be a comfortable and affordable sporting shotgun. Featuring a 30-inch target barrel with a red fiber optic sight, the SR Sport has a red anodized receiver and end cap. Its synthetic stock and forearm coated with "Soft Touch" provides the operator with a more comfortable shooting experience.

Our friends at American Rifleman recently featured the SR Sport in a segment of NRA's Gun of the Week. You can check out their coverage and get an inside look at TriStar's sporting gun with the video embedded above.
