Looking for a reasonably priced trap gun. Love my brownings but seems like a lot to spend to shoot a couple of rounds every week. Anybody know much about them? Good, bad , ugly?
Found some used bt-99s but without the adjustable stock they donít fit me well. Love to find an old 870 trap or at least a barrel.




I'm itchin' to see a coyote twitchin'.

More trappin' and less yappin'.

I have a Pointer shotgun you may want to look into them before you decide buddy. They are very reasonably priced (cheap, but a GREAT warranty). It's a top choice for new shooters around here.

Lots of opinions on them.

Few guys at the club have had them, half got rid of them other half love them.

We used to sell TriStar. I think every one out the door came back for warranty work. Run!

I was afraid of that. Looks like it will take a bunch of 5 dollar yotes to by a browning. Better get busy. Lol
Anything a grand or under thatís a decent trap gun?
Jayme I canít find any warranty info on pointed shotguns. They do have a pretty single trap gun.

Mine's an O/U. When I bought it my dealer said he has sold a lot of them to beginning trap shooters. Said they used them as loaner guns too at the trap range. Literally thousands of rounds through them. He said even when they finally wear out, they will replace them free.

Beretta hurts once but will last you a life time. Then give it to your grandkid. Donít know which one will get it but the others ones will get something else

a friend has a tri-star I have shot it , his is 20ga I would think of it as more of a skeet gun as it is short and fairly light

I prefer the 870 or 500 for trap longer sight picture

I have a 500 with a Morgan pad that fits me very well

my son is shooting 24&25 with his 870 not a trap model just a SP

vent rib with center bead 28 inch barrel full choke , stock fit is important

I see the tristar as a disposable gun , you shoot it till it is loose or break something then buy another , Numrich is all out of firing pins

if you like the 870 find a wing-master , send the barrel off to Carlson to get threaded if it isn't already and fit the stock to you

if you want boyds sells stocks you can fit it as needed to make it right for you

build what fits you and never sell it


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I help coach a trap team. Most of those Turkish guns, or inexpensive guns look beautiful but cant hold up to the rigors of weekly shooting. I bit the bullet on an adjustable length of pull BT99. My son started shooting it weekly at 8 years old, 60 lbs. I see so many parents show up with a $450 20 gauge pump in the spring. Which has more recoil than a 12 gauge semi or break action and then by fall they've got a $450 12 gauge. If they just went with a quality gun in the beginning they really have something. Go for a BT or other high quality gun, your grandkids, great grandkids will thank you. Best of luck to you.

What kind of 870 barrel are you looking for? I have one off a trap gun that is choked ďimproved trapĒ.


I have nothing clever to put here.
