It's usually "I bought a X, how did I do", then 2 and 3 LOLWhy do all tri star threads have the same theme?
1st I'm buying a tri star and what's your opinion ?
2nd I like the price and my friend shot one with no trouble.
3rd I don’t want to hear your opinion.
You'll probably notice considerably more cheek slap because of the drop on the TT-15's stock.I went back and forth about buying another BT99 to sit in the corner as a backup, but wanted something different. I have seen Tristars in action with the guys I shoot with over the past 2 years and they have had no issues putting 4-5 thousand a year through. One guy put his Krieghoff away and now shoots Tristar primarily. Anyoone know how the POI is right outta the box ? I'm hoping 70/30 so I don't need to adjust anything.
I'll play with it shooting practice dialing it in and probably use it at Lewis events now and then. I got it for $1099 so who cares about resale value ??? I still love my BT99 but it has gotten a hairline crack near the action on the wood ears I guess you can call them. Used hot stuff glue and crack hasn't moved in a year.
I had Fabarm ELOS N2 Allsport just untill few days ago as but sold it cause it was too small and that had a small hairline vrack near wood on side near tang. Fabarm wanted $1110 fr replacement stock AND you had to have them do the fitting plus cost of labor. Beware Fabarm Triwood stock ! I sold it to guy not knowing there was a crack but he didn't see it till he got home. We worked out where I gave him some money back.
+1I hope that the clay shooting community can get affordable and reliable guns in general. With the cost of everything going up it's difficult to bring on new shooters and most new shooters don't have an avenue to find a bargain on a decent used gun. I'm hope your TriStar works well for you @mjrutkow .
I sort of know where you are coming from. Not sure how much the shooters will see of that.+1
It seems like a lot of other industries, some similar, have figured this out. Trap has not. Instead for me, I've found more value in older guns. It would be nice if a mfg out there could put all the features a trap shooter is looking for with out all the fancy, and keep the cost down. Would be amazing for this sport.
What are you talking about?This is downright rude and uncalled for.
I actually looked over a TriStar and shot one but it was a few weeks after I had a Tetanus shot. I thought it was a piece of junk then and still do today. If the truth hurts then so be it, as it’s my opinion as a Gunsmith graduate and a more than 30 years a trapshooter. If you want to save money I might suggest a pump Mossberg. They are bullet proof and you get what you paid for.What would motivate you to say something like that ? Why denigrate other people ? Does it make you feel better ? Just curious. Bless your heart !
See my post above and I believe it will relieve you of your doubts. If you still feel like a champion of your opinion by all means pat yourself on the back. Others don’t agree with you and never will.This is downright rude and uncalled for.
You were making assumptionsWhat are you talking about?
50 post rule is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly.
I don't give a da** if you are a gunsmith or not! There was nothing wrong with the original post and nothing to indicate he was trying for 50 posts. I don't have a TriStar and never will. I was not defending the TriStar brand.See my post above and I believe it will relieve you of your doubts. If you still feel like a champion of your opinion by all means pat yourself on the back.

Like I said you’re entitled to your opinions just like I am. The OP has frequent flyer miles on this post so what do most people think? The TriStar is a piece of junk and it always will be. It’s far from my opinion alone.You were making assumptions

I don't know why you thought he was posting to get 50 posts as I certainly did not see that. I thought you were out of line accusing him of that.
As far as I am concerned this pi**ing match is over. My ego is not tied up in this discussion
Mx8 it is likely you will have a long wait as the OP joined in 2014 and only has 14 posts.I can’t wait until you get 50 posts to see what you have to sell. A cracked BiStar sounds like a dream come true for many of us.
I doubt it because after he started this post he’s posted 7 more times on this one post. 8 posts were on this one post alone.Mx8 it is likely you will have a long wait as the OP joined in 2014 and only has 14 posts.
I own a BT100 stainless, and a Tri Star. No comparison, but lets me bring others out to shoot with me. The TT is a nice gun, but as others say, does not fit the cheek as others do. I still can consistently hit targets, but does not have same feel. I also have a Blaser sporting, and the fit and feel is perfect. Impossible to find a gun with that much fit and feel, plus kills targets. SDJust an FYI, I stumbled across this at the club yesterday. Might be beneficial to anyone interested in the TT-15.
Shotgun Sports Magazine has the Gun Test on the TT-15 in the July 2022 publication. I’m pretty sure the magazine can be had or the article can be seen online at shotgunsportsmagazine, just thought I’d pass it on. A lot of talk about this thing week after week on this site.
After reading the article at least I now know what one looks like. Unless I’m living under a rock, wife tells me I am, these are not real common in my area being used for trap.
