TriStar 20 Ga/26" Blued Barrel/Multichoke & Black Synthetic
[24108]
$418.00
by Robert W Date Added: Tuesday 02 December, 2008
Be warned on the 20 gauge version of this gun! The fit of the components leaves a lot to be desired. I had been eyeballing this gunfor some time. A tight-wad hunting buddy of mine picked up the 12 gauge of this gun. His gun was dropping ducks without any problems. That settled it for me. I ordered the 20 ga for quail & dove and such. It appears as though tri-star uses the same stock on the 20 as they do on the 12. The stock is about 1/4" bigger than the receiver. We also discovered that shells must be pushed fully into the magazine tube. When you load the gun, you may think you got the shell all the way in but, it still needs and extra little push to get it fully in. If this is not done, the gun will fail to cycle. It was rather annoying, but after a while you get used to just pushing a little further than feels natural.

On the plus side, after the loading/ cycling issue was resolved and I put the terrible stock to receiver fit out of my mind, this gun shoots quite well. It shoulders nicely (obviously, your results may vary on that one). Being a 20 ga, it doesn't hit hard at all. It is very light. ...and it is a clay busting machine. I ordered mine before the price jumped over $40 after the election. For what I paid for it, I am satisfied, but I will be trying to contact Tri-Star about the stock situation. At the price it is now, I might start looking at the Mossberg 920 for the extra $50-60.
