Get a closer look at the TriStar Bristol Silver Side-by-Side in 28-gauge, the latest addition to our #SundayGunday series.
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.
TriStar Arms has had success with its Cobra line of pump-action shotguns, which has provided a reliable, affordable option to waterfowl and turkey hunters the world over for some time now. For 2016 the line is getting an extension, in the form of its first 3½-inch model: the new Cobra Mag.
Last year, TriStar Arms expanded its Viper G2 semi-automatic shotgun line to include a new 12-gauge sporting model: the SR Sport. 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 provided here.
