NRA Gun of the Week: TriStar Arms Viper G2 Bronze .410 Bore Shotgun

With more than 40 years of experience, TriStar Arms is a well-respected importer of quality, Turkish-made firearms, which include its  Viper G2 line. Now chambered for .410 bore, this gas-piston-operated semi-automatic shotgun features a Cerakote bronze finish over a scaled aluminum receiver. The scattergun pairs a chrome-lined, 28” steel barrel, rendered in a deep blue finish with a Turkish walnut stock for an aesthetically pleasing, low-recoiling shotgun option. In fact, our editors were so pleased with the shotgun it earned the 2019 Golden Bullseye for Shotgun of the YearTo learn more, check out this NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman's Christopher Olsen.
