Default Anyone with info on a TriStar single barrel shotgun?

I saw one with a 20" barrel and synthetic stock. Not too much on the interweb except something about them made for a wild turkey foundation. Looks like a fun gun for shooting and cheap. I dont have a single barrel shotgun. I have pump, semi and double barrel. What do you think?

I'm sure it works fine. Recoil is gonna be a serious mutha on a 4lb-4oz break-action shotgun though...

While plenty of people do have them, I personally see singles as relics of a bygone era. Way too many affordable repeaters out there these days...

Too much recoil for me to enjoy shooting them.

How much is too much recoil? Does it kick more than a Marlin Guide Gun in 45-70?

I’ve never shot a Marlin Guide Gun. The effects of recoil are cumulative though and other than turkey the hunting I do with shotguns is high volume shooting compared to the hunting I do with a rifle.

The purpose of this gun would not be for high-volume shooting. It's something lightweight that's less than four and a half pounds. With the 20 inch barrel, it's not likely that I'm going to shoot two or three rounds of trap. It would be something that you might put three or four rounds through when you actually need it.

The purpose of this thread was specifically about the brand TriStar and if anyone had any information about it.

I don’t own a TriStar but know enough people who have them and like them that I’d give one a shot. All semi’s. I grew up shooting break action single barrels and do not have fond memories of the recoil. I’m not saying don’t get one, I’m saying they are not for me due to recoil.

Well, a 1oz load of shot at 1200fps is gonna be very roughly equivalent to a 405gr bullet at the same speed...but that shotgun weighs about 3 pounds less than the Marlin does. What's more is that the Guide Gun (which I do have) has great ergonomics and that goes a long way towards taming recoil.

As far as Tri-Star, like I said I'm sure it'll work. Guys who have them seem to like them, and there's not much to go wrong with a break-action single.

Good luck.
