History of TriStar
TriStar is a family-owned and operated firearms manufacturer based out of Kansas City. They produce an array of respectable shotguns and handguns. Though they’ve only been in business less than 30 years, don’t let their young age fool you. This is a reputable firearms manufacturer that has proven they can hang with the best of them. In less than two decades, TriStar has rapidly expanded its enterprise. They are not the new kids on the block, however. The company’s management team has more than 75-years of combined experience in the business.
TriStar has become well-known for its shotgun production. While they have a complete line of semi-automatic pistols, their shotguns really have taken off with shooters. The most popular shotgun line, the Viper series, is available in a wide variety of configurations. All firearms are put through a 5,000-round endurance test to ensure longevity.
Despite having doubled the size of their warehouse in Kansas City, they do import several products from Turkey, something TriStar has been very honest about. They offer a 5-Year Warranty on everything they produce because taking care of their customers is really what it’s all about. There is something for everyone in the TriStar lineup.
