I have a 20 ga. Tri-Star Viper with a synthetic stocks that I won about 4-5 years ago at a Friends of The NRA banquet. It handles and shoots really well. No issues, I'm extremely pleased with it. It's been my go to dove and quail gun.

Hope this helps,
Dave

I’ve got a TriStar Viper G2 Bronze 20 gauge. Only a few hundred shells through it with no issues. Trigger sucks. Will get some attention in future.

Comes with a 5 year warranty. Buds offers lifetime warranty for $29. If they can’t fix it, the price is allowed against anything else.

The tri stars we have in use with our youth club have held up exceptionally well and every failure to fire has been traced back to ammunition issues..

If I were looking at Turkish autos I would look no further than tri star, or weatherby. In fact I think the CZ autos are Turkish too

Sold a lot of them when I was in the Firearms Wholesale Industry. Never had any of them returned.

I saw one at a not so local gunstore last weekend and it looked pretty darn good. Proof in the pudding is shooting it a lot but I think the Turks have come a long way in their manufacturing process.

I bought a Mossberg International SA20 Turkey Thug this year.
That little gun is great. Super light weight with great egros and excellent fiber optic sights.

Its digested everything I’ve put in it without fail and rolled two big toms this season.
Comes with camouflage synthetic stock, sling swivel studs and sling and stock spacers.

I purchased improved cylinder and modified chokes for it, so I can use it for dove/upland game as well.
I’d buy one again in a heart beat.

Bought a left handed Tristar viper for my son camouflaged 12 gauge.
Never had any issues yet fires every time.
Only thing I personally don’t like is the choke tube threads, but that’s just a personal thing.

Should be Beretta/Benelli Mobil choke threads

Been eyeing the Tristar Viper 28 gauge real hard. Only thing I don't like is you have to get the bronze metal to get the fancy Turkish handle. Much rather have the silver receiver with the wood upgrade.

I have an ATA Neo inertia 20 ga that I've been pleased with. It's the same gun as the Weatherby Element since they make that gun for Weatherby. The Tri-Stars, Mossberg and Weatherbys all seem to be good and I've researched them thoroughly.
