    If the TriStar Bristol 16 gauge English grip can be special ordered with a 3 inch chamber, 14.25 inch LOP, 2.5 inch DAH, and better wood then how do I order?

    Looks like a beautiful shotgun but until I KNOW that it is not made in Turkey… I’ll pass.

    Turkey is NO friend and a poor ally to the N.A.T.O. in general and the U.S. in particular.

    Too bad as I think the overall concept of the company is pretty impressive. I just wish the sources of thier imports was more commendable.

    Let’s Go Brandon!

    I like a side by side 16. Sure, the ammo is hard to find, expensive and gets tricky if you are picky about shot size. Sure, you can fit the same load in a 3” 20 ga shell that you can in a 16 ga 2 3/4” shell. But there is a certain class to the 16. The case coloured receiver is pretty. The pistol grip stock looks a little ungraceful but probably works well in the hand.
