TriStar Arms has released the new Bristol line of side-by-side shotguns, available in two versions and four gauges. The Bristol is a classic gentleman's gun with an English stock, while the Bristol Silver sports a traditional-style stock and 24k gold inlay.

Side-by-side shotguns, with their classic look and feel, can often provide for a more dynamic shooting experience. With a shallower action, reloading a side-by-side can be a breeze, plus the wider fore-end lays nicely in the palm for quick pointing. Another characteristic highly favored by side-by-side shotgun aficionados are the classic aesthetics.

Each gauge in the Bristol side-by-side line (12, 20, 28 and .410) is built on a steel frame true to gauge, which ensures the shotgun handles and weighs appropriately.
