Tristar Arms is taking advantage of the growing U.S. interest in hunting turkeys with .410 bore shotguns by offering a new version of its popular Viper G2 series configured with gobblers in mind.

This gas-operated, 3"-chambered semi-automatic shotgun can shoot a variety of ammunition ranging from light target shells to heavy hunting cartridges like Federal Premium’s TSS .410 Turkey load. This version features a Midnight Bronze Cerakote finish for the receiver and barrel with a fiber-optic sight.

The synthetic stocks are treated with the Realtree MAX-5 camouflage pattern. The shoulder stock is outfitted with a rubber recoil pad and a rubberized pistol grip for added control. The receiver is topped with a rail for red-dot optics or magnified hunting scopes.

This model ships with three Beretta/Benelli Mobil-style choke tubes and it’s backed with a five-year mechanical warranty. For more information on the new Viper G2 series of shotguns, visit
