Guy Sagi has just blogged about an interesting shotgun. The TriStar Cobra Force incorporates a spring-loaded fore end to speed up cycling the action …
Enter the TriStar Cobra Force shotgun with a spring-loaded fore-end that, quite literally, assists a shooter in bringing the shotgun back into battery. According to Garrett Bader, of TriStar sporting Arms, “You can fire this gun almost as fast as a semi-auto.”
The gun, which is manufactured in Turkey by Armsan, comes with a formidable looking flash hider that can be replaced with Beretta/Benelli-style choke tubes. The receiver has a Picatinny rail already mounted, the fore-end has another rail, and up front a fiber-optic sight provides quick target acquisition in low light and operates well as a post in virtually no light.
It gets exhaustive testing in the January issue of Shooting Illustrated magazine that’s available on newsstands today, and there were some surprises uncovered, including its unusually crisp trigger with a consistent 5-pound let-off weight.
The idea makes sense to me. I look forward to reading the review in the magazine.
