TriStar Arms has announced the new TriStar Compact, a 12-gauge bullpup.
The Compact is equipped with a 20" barrel, 30" overall length and is chambered for up to 3" shells. The gas-operated, semi-automatic shotgun is able to cycle from standard field loads up to 1 1/8 oz. slugs interchangeably. A removable choke system uses Beretta/Benelli mobile threads, includes one extended ported cylinder-bore choke tube. The bullpup comes outfitted with a rubber recoil pad, sling mounts, fixed carry handle with sights as well as flip-up front and rear sights, and two 5-round magazines. The shotgun is backed by TriStar's five-year warranty. MSRP is $790.
"The KRX set the standard for what an AR-like shotgun can be. Now with the Compact we're raising the bar for both AK-like and bullpup shotguns," said Ryan Bader, vice president of sales and marketing for TriStar Arms. "Home defense, range fun, and law enforcement can now all take advantage of increased power in a more portable package with the TriStar Compact.”
