DeuceDeuce_22, love your updates! Please keep them coming. I've been entertaining a Hunter Ex myself. Also, if you could post some close-up pics, especially of the furniture, that would be great!!

Deucedeuce_22, how's your Tristar holding up? Anyone else with a Tristar, please feel free to report on your experiences.

I have the 20 ga. While I don't have as many rounds through it as some because I don't shoot trap I use it for waterfowl so am using loads heavier than what most are shooting. After 8 years no problems yet.

I have the Setter S/T 28" Over/Under made in the last year or so after they switched production from Arthemis to Kral and it is very well built.

I have 2,185 shells through it and it's holding up well. I did have a firing pin break at 1,080 rounds and a quick call to TriStar had one shipped to me free in a few days. 5 min job to replace. Overall very happy with it.

I just got a Tristar ou ex and the gun is very light...about 6.5 pounds. With 1 1/8 loads and 3 drams, my shoulder felt like it was going to come off.

I added weight in the stock and on the barrel to about 7.5 pounds, which helps the recoil. The gun still kicks hard. I’m looking for 7/8 loads to see if it feels better.

Overall, it locks up nice and the mechanical trigger should be good w lighter loads....

Is this the Hunter EX? I don't believe there's a Setter EX.
