My LGS has one of these… I don’t own a semi-auto shotgun

thinking of it… anyone have any experience with these?


my use would be an occasional outing with it at the trap range (maybe 4-5 times per year)

Well i would look for honest reviews. One of the sales guys at the counter in walmart said they are poor quality. He always tries to reccomend a better brand. A few times a year it should be ok. It is nice looking.

I found myself in the same position. No semi auto shotguns. That’s why i went ahead with that bullpup. My brother has had a few of their single shots but never a semi auto. I say give it a try. You never know.

I have 870s they use for trap and I just bought that Condor Supreme O/U.

I have two Turkish semiauto’s and both are great. Mine are TriStar ( The US company name ) and I use them for turkeys and geese. Never a hiccup and when I lost my magazine plug, one phone call and it was sent to me in days.

When I stopped at the LGS to pick up my SW MP .45 today… I got to handle a Tri Star Viper G2 in bronze… like this one

Building Window Automotive lighting Wood Asphalt


I think that pic is of a 20ga above… but the 12ga I handled was essentially identical

1) I don’t care for high gloss
2) They wanted $650

so…

I wrote a check for the Hatfield ($250) and it will be here soon

The high gloss is more of a range gun look and the matte finish is for the field. I have a Tri Star OU 12 ga that I’ve been looking at removing the high gloss epoxy finish. It’s not as difficult as you would think. There are some YouTube videos on it. I wouldn’t do it on a brand new gun but the one I have could use some freshening up. Tri Star sells some models in the matte finish. My Son’s 28 ga OU is matte and it’s gorgeous.

Took a few weeks, but I received the email today from my LGS… the Hatfield SAS 12ga has finally arrived!

I’ll pick it up tomorrow and post some pictures. No range time imminent… my SIL still seriously ill and we are heading to the People‘s Republic of Illinois for a few days to visit.
