#SundayGunday: TriStar Viper Max

Self-branded as "The Value Experts," TriStar is home to an array of respectable shotguns and handguns, which are often available at a budget-conscious price point. The company has, for years, rolled out a variety of fine-shooting scatterguns. One thing that's long eluded it, however, is a 3½-inch autoloader for the more dedicated waterfowl hunters among us. That changed at SHOT Show 2017, however, when TriStar announced its new Viper Max.

Rather than discuss whether or not the Vinci lives up to the hype, let’s delve into how this semi-auto 12-gauge works and why you might like to own one.
