NRA Gun of the Week: Tristar Arms Viper G2 SR Sport

This week we are feature the Tristar Viper G2 SR Sport, a sporting shotgun packed with features at an affordable price. Immediately noticeable on the Tristar is the added flare imparted by the gun’s red, anodized-aluminum receiver and magazine knob. We took the Viper out to Bull Run Shooting Center in Centreville, Va., to run it through its paces. There we found the Viper G2 to be a well-balanced, smooth-shooting, sporting shotgun. The large and extended bolt handle, as well as the enlarged bolt release, are made for fast and intuitive manipulation. A wide target rib and fiber-optic bead sight up front made for quick target acquisition and resulted in many clay breaks. The G2 SR Sport’s stock has a rather long length of pull, which some may find difficult reaching into the trigger guard, but the stock’s Soft Touch finish mounted smoothly to the cheek with no abrasion during shot cycles. The Viper G2 SR Sport incorporates many popular and functional features, including Beretta-style chokes—it ships with ships with a full assortment. With an MSRP of $624, the Viper G2 SR Sport represents an excellent value. For more, watch the video above hosted by American Rifleman Assistant Editor Christopher Olsen.
