Tristar’s New Viper G2 Shotgun Color


Tristar, a company whose main purpose is importing firearms and whose five-year shotgun warranty bears mentioning, is adding to their Viper G2 line. The semi-auto shotgun line already comes in black, silver, wood, and a variety of camouflage patterns, and with this new addition it’ll include bronze.


From Tristar:

“TriStar Arms has expanded its flagship line of Viper G2 shotguns with the addition of the all-new Viper G2 Bronze. Available in both 12 gauge and 20 gauge, the new Viper G2 Bronze is a reliable semi-automatic shotgun that is ideal for target shooters and upland bird hunters.

The fit and finish of the Viper G2 Bronze have a classic feel, with a long-lasting Bronze Cerakote finished receiver and a stock and forearm made of high-grade Turkish walnut with cut checkering and semi-gloss finish.

The Viper G2 Bronze has a 3-inch chamber and a 5-round magazine tube. The barrel has a vent rib with matted sight plane. The Viper G2 Bronze also has a fiber optic front sight for fast and easy target acquisition. It comes with a removable choke system that uses Beretta®/Benelli® Mobile Threads. It includes three choke tubes (IC, M, F), choke box, and wrench. A shot plug is included with the firearm.

The 12 gauge version has a 28-inch barrel and weighs 6.8 pounds, while the 20 gauge version has a 26-inch barrel and weighs 6.2 pounds. Both models of the Viper G2 Bronze shotguns have an MSRP of $759.00 and are backed by a 5-year warranty.

Like all TriStar shotguns, the Viper G2 Bronze was put through a 5000-round endurance test to ensure that it is a firearm TriStar customers can depend on.

    This is just an advert

      Agreed and a waste of bandwidth. I hope TFB at least got some $$$ for it. On a side note TriStar needs to get their story straight. I’ve contacted them on a few occasions regarding their shotguns and per their own people not all TriStar models get the 5000 round endurance test.

      Pretty much

    These are built on the Winchester SX3 action which is pretty reliable…factory QC is another thing though..

    I had literally just finished taking my Viper G2 Bronze 12ga out of the box when I read this article. The walnut is beautiful on my gun. The cerakote finish looks sharp as well. Time will tell how well it holds up.
