TriStar Compact - A 12 Gauge Bullpup
TriStar Arms announces the arrival of the new TriStar Compact. This 12-gauge bullpup packs a 20" barrel into a shotgun with an overall length of just 30". Increased velocity and muzzle energy cycles with AK-like reliability and feeds from box magazines to facilitate quick reloads and easy load-type changes. Compatibility with popular Saiga-type 12ga magazines means a variety of sources and capacities are readily available.
The Compact 12ga is equipped with a 20" barrel, 30" overall length and is chambered for up to 3" shells. Gas operated, semi-automatic shotgun that can cycle from standard field loads up to 1 1/8oz slugs interchangeably. Removable choke system uses Beretta/Benelli Mobile Threads, includes one extended ported cylinder-bore choke tube. Rubber Recoil pad, sling mounts, and fixed Carry handle with sights as well as flip-up front and rear sights, and two 5-round magazines. The Compact is backed by TriStar's five-year warranty.
The TriStar Compact utilizes a gas operated Semi-automatic. If the magazine and chamber are both loaded opening action will result in ejecting shell from chamber and cycling new shell from magazine into the chamber. A bolt hold open is located just beneath Safety Lever. To lock the bolt open, simply pull the action back and press upwards on the Bolt Lock. The primary safety is located on the right side of the gun, just under the ejection port. When engaged, the safety is designed to block the trigger, hammer lever and the hammer, which makes the firing mechanism immobile. The Compact 12ga comes with two polymer-bodied 5-round magazines.
