Default TriStar Semi-Autos?

Anyone use TriStar shotguns? They look pretty cool and very well priced...

As with all of the low grade imports from china, turkey and other 3rd world type places, they get mixed reviews as for quality, operation, fitment etc...

They are not top shelf with customer service and I read that if you are waiting for a reply to an email, you are backin' up.... seems you have to phone them to get issues addressed.

Me? I buy American guns from american owned privately held companies selling guns of known decent quality at fair prices... So I am limited to Mossberg gear.

Oh, so they're an import? I feel the same way about American guns, although I do own a Howa (right gun at the right price.) I have a hard time buy any other scatter gun than the remingtons... mostly because I know how to take them apart and work on em.

I don't hear many knockin' a Howa... And there are a few reputable gun factories in Turkey producing great quality guns but them are far more pricey than my Mossbergs or even your preferred Remingtons...

You got the well priced thing right. Thier Tactical shotguns are cheap and look good. Let me know if your holds up well after a good 500 or so rounds.

The best value shotgun on the market in my opinion is the Maverick 88. They are about $150 and are very similar to Mossberg 500s except that they are assembled in Mexico.

Looked at the Mavericks, fairly impressed... If I were in the market for a mossy 500 I'd buy one of these first.

The maverick is similar to the Mossbergs but has a crossbolt safety rather than the top of tang safety I prefer...
AND THEY ARE NOT ASSEMBLED IN MEXICO!!! NO GUNS ARE ASSEMBLED IN MEXICO AS A MATTER OF FACT!!!

Some parts are made in mexico... others made in texas and some in the home factory... the Maverick is assembled at the Eagle Pass Texas plant...

The ONLY imported Mossbergs bear the moniker... "Mossberg International" and I refuse to entertain buying them.

Simmer down, Brent... We all applaud your patriotism and shot gunning knowledge, however, there is no need to scream.
