Been researching this gun for quite some time. I recently 'pulled the trigger' and made the purchase.
Ordering online was a breeze. The gun came in a day before delivery estimate. As with all new guns, i disassembled the gun, cleaned it, lubed it, and reassembled it. Im a factory armorer for a couple different major firearms manufacturers and was pretty impressed with how this shotgun is put together, taking bits and pieces from a few major makers to build a simple operating shotgun. Per the instructions included with the gun, i shot only full power loads through it to start with. I fired 45 shells consisting of 00 buck and rifled slug. The gun functioned perfectly. I did note that the choke tube was loose every three or four shots. I cleaned the gun and really liked that many parts of the gun seem to be hard chromed. Cleaning these parts took nothing more than wiping down with a paper towel. Handy. I put some thread lock on the choke tube while cleaning the gun. A couple days later, I fired 10 1oz slugs at 50 yards. The gun loves slugs. Its a slug shooting machine. It puts them one on top of another like a rifle. The thread lock seems to have remedied the choke tube loosening up.
The gun is L-I-G-H-T. Its punishing even to this 200 lb cop who isnt typically bothered by recoil. The recoil 'pad' on the gun isnt much of a 'pad' at all! Its hard as a rock and is actually sculpted almost to a point at the rear. I dont think it would be too hard to manufacture the gun with a real recoil pad.
Since the gun is working so well, i added an adjustable stock and a 3 shot magazine extension, which puts the magazine capacity to (8)2-3/4 shells and runs right to the end of the shotgun's barrel. Still functions great and the recoil pad on the new stock tames the recoil tremendously. Ive now fired well over 100 shells through the gun. Ive had one shell fail to chamber. A tap forward on the operating handle solved that.
In summary, the gun i received runs like a sewing machine. Ive been very impressed considering the price. Its reliable. Its light. Its very accurate. Its simple. Its inexpensive. I cant imagine anyone not liking this shotgun.

I was looking for close-in (50 yards and less) semi-auto shotgun when coyote hunting to back up my Ruger 204. Wanted to keep weight down, needed something that handled fast, and didn't break the bank since this was going to be a single purpose gun. I took a chance on the TriStar Raptor ATAC for $321 through Bud's.

Gun is 3” gas operated, semi-automatic tactical shotgun that allows you to shoot light to heavy loads. Removable choke system that uses Beretta® Mobile threads includes one choke tube , choke box and choke wrench. Injection molded stock w/ fixed pistol grip and forearm.

The Raptor ATAC features:
Magazine Cut-Off, Bridge Front Sight with Fiber Optic Bead, Picatinny Rail with Ghost Ring Sight Mounted, 5 Round Magazine, Chrome-lined Chamber and Barrel, Swivel Studs, Extended Beretta® Mobile Choke. Backed with a five-year mechanical warranty.

Since the gun will also be used for night hunting with a red led, I mounted a short piece of picatinny rail forward of the magazine for quick connect of the light. I also removed the ghost ring and fiber optic front sight in lieu of a AR Optics Advance Red Dot Sight from Bushnell for quick night time target acquisition. IT is 1x-magnification matte black finish and projects a 5 MOA red dot. Also replaced the original choke tube with a Carlson's Choke Tube 12GA Beretta & Benelli Mobil Ported Coyote special. Really tightens up the Hornady 00 buck coyote loads.

So far very satisfied with the gun, no failures to feed, soft shooting, quick handling. Killed a coyote out to 62 paces a few weeks back.

fast shipping from buds gun as always.
works very well for me. had to struggle with it a bit in the beginning (i.e. few malfunction during the break in period, disassembly of the barrel was harder than usual, etc) but after shooting & cleaning it a few time it works well. recoil pad is hard as a rock. i wish it came with a normal stock rather than a pistol grip as i use it primary for hunting and find the pistol grip to be a disadvantage. you get what you pay for, but it works for me.

Transaction through Buds went smooth and fast....always does. Gun arrives and took it apart for a good cleaning before taking it to the range. I did purchase 50 rounds of #4 hi-brass for brake in.
Pros:
Made with first class materials. Fit and outside finish were very nice.
Gun is well balanced and shoots smooth
After below gun work shot all 50 rounds of hi-brass with out any failures.
Cons:
During initial break down and cleaning noticed catch points on inside receiver that I had to grind down with dremel. Also had to smooth some rough spots on rails.
Choke tube had to be re-tighten every 5-7 shots
Hate the size (too small) and placement of safety

I have no regrets in the purchase. I've had over 10 shotguns so I was familiar with the product and was comfortable doing the extra work that I had to do. Just not sure that this is a purchase for someone that may not want to put a little extra work into the gun before shooting it. I really believe it is a gun that needs a lot of break in. It was much smoother after 100 rounds then before.

Weapon arrived as described. I put 15 3 inch slugs through to break it in as i have read is important for cycling. After that, this weapon cycles any round you want without any ftf or fte. The ghost rings were perfect at 50 yards out of the box for slugs. Highly recommended for the money. Chose cash option and arrived at my ffl within 12 days.

I purchased this during the holidays so the longer than normal process time is expected. Buds shipped the item about a week after the order and arrived just a couple days later. The gun was just as described. I broke it down to inspect and clean off any heavy greases from build (not needed). All parts were clean and move freely. Took skeet shooting soon after and did not use the high brass to break in. Didn't need too. I did shoot a few hi brass defense rounds and ran perfict. On the low brass only failed to eject 2 loads on the first magazine. Not a single failure over the next 100 rounds. I'm very pleased with gun and would recommend. Tear down after the first 100 rounds did need a good cleaning and took a little work to breal back apart (tight fit barrel). Quite a bit of carbon on the gas ports and magazines tube. All cleaned up quite easy and fit back together tight. This is a nice solid fun gun.

Have had no issues with Buds , and after several orders I can vouch for Buds to do a good job . The TriStar Raptor carries a low price yet delivers a very good shotgun and customer service is very helpful . Range report : Using 12 ga. Winchester #7, 2.75 inch low brass , fired 15 consecutive shots , on the 15 th shot had the first FTE , remove forearm and clean spring return tube ,after cleaning fired 17 more # 7, 2.75 inch low brass and had no FTE or feed issues at all . Next Using Winchester # 1 , 2.75 inch buckshot , fired 12 consecutive shots with no cycling problems at all . This is the firearm I now trust to defend my home....Thanks Buds / Thanks TriStar .

Awesome Semi-auto Shotgun. A little less kick than the pump. Thats due to the use of the gas recycling the shells. However, its loud and intimidating. Nice stock and grip. Feels well built. Firing reliability depends on type of shells. It likes bird and buck. It fires slugs too but it didn't like the police action slug. Simple stove pipe with easy clear. If you want an easy and accurate semi auto riot stopper that will make them leffties think twice about their next home invasion or simply want an edge at your next skeet or trap outing, the raptor won't break your wallet or need constant maintenance.

    Allen, this shotgun has a 20 inch smooth barrel with an Extended Tactical Beretta/Benelli Style Choke. I don't see anything that would improve accuracy with Sabots.

    Hi Richard, Buds does not alter firearms and you most likely will have to replace the rear stock with a "Youth" type stock to get the desired shorter length of pull. Tri-Star will be your best bet at a recommended solution at Phone: (816) 421-1400.
