Tristar pic rail ?
« on: June 22, 2022, 08:40:34 AM »
I just bought a Tristar Viper G2 Turkey 20 ga. It’s used and in excellent condition. Only problem it is missing the Picatinny rail that is supposed to come with the gun. It’s drilled and all set for a rail but apparently the previous owner misplaced it, needed it for another gun, who knows. Didn’t think I would have a problem finding one but I’ve looked and looked online, EGW etc and there’s no Tristar rails. Does anyone know if there’s another gun that the rail will fit and line up on the Tristar? Thanks

+ 1... if you are using a red dot.. get the Sumtoy mount.. much cleaner and lower than the pic rail.

Yes, I’m going to put a vortex venom on it. Thought about the Sumtoy, I have one on my Stevens. It’s nice. The Tristar has 4 holes, 2 towards the rear a bigger space then 2 towards the front. Wasn’t sure if a Sumtoy would line up or not. Thanks you guys for the help, much appreciated.

This gun isn’t the turkey gun with the bronze receiver, it’s what they call a distributor model, it’s full MO Obsession and without the soft touch finish. Otherwise I think it’s the same thing. But is the drilling the same?

The Sumtoy mount will use the 2 rear holes... or the 2 forward holes (pretty sure the forward holes are spaced the same distance as the 2 rears)  And yes.. I'm sure William can send you a few filler screws. I have (3) tristar vipers with the pistol grip in all gauges. I replaced all the pic rails with Suntoy protector mounts last year. Good guns.

Thanks to all you guys, you’ve all been most helpful and I will be calling William at Sumtoy. Sounds like the way to go.
