I don't see them anywhere in Tristar's website . I would call them and ask about it. could be "new old stock" . maybe discontinued so better ask questions first.

I saw one today at cabela’s , 410 very thin wrist English stock/ tiny splinter foreend. So tiny it looked toy like. The finish was nice, and the wood had character.

Looked at the Bristol today at Cabelas in 28ga. 28” barrels, single trigger, selector, extractors. case harden frame, blued barrels. Chokes look to be mobil. I put one on thei scale an it weighed 5.25 lbs.
I suspect this is a Cabelas/bass pro exclusive. Sale dude didn’t know.

Very thin grip, stock fit me better (higher comb) than a CZ bob G2.
$919.

Did you happen to try the trigger pull? Nice weight for a 28 sxs. CZ seem to be closer to 6# from what I can gather.

I did not. Trigger locks on all their guns.
The CZ bobwhite G2 I had weighed 6# 2oz

The lack of a flat rib was a bit of a negative.

Bought one yesterday. Selected the heaviest of the three they had. 5#5oz on my scale. Dark wood, not as much figuring as I would have liked but that one seemed to point better. Trigger is well under 5# with mechanical reset. Manual safety. Mobil chokes but none of my Beretta chokes will screw in, too tight. Have same problem with a 410 Viper. Oh well, it comes with 5. These are being sold as used guns because they were demo guns. Talked to Tri Star service about warranty coverage and they are fully covered. Will see how it goes today.

Congratulations on your purchase. I'm thinking about getting a Bristol, too. I had the same choke problem after I bought my 28 ga. Viper G2 a couple of years ago. I never actually tried the chokes that came with my Beretta because I prefer extended chokes and already had mobil chokes I bought years ago from Briley for my Beretta. Only one would fit my G2. I saw on Briley's website that they want you to buy outrageously priced custom chokes for a G2. I contacted TriStar and they wanted me to send them the gun and my Briley chokes. In just a couple of days, they called me and said the problem wasn't the threading on the gun; it was that the threading on the chokes was too shallow. They said that Carlson chokes fit perfectly. I had the gun and my Briley chokes back within a week. Bought a selection of Carlson mobil chokes (which are significantly less expensive that Briley mobil chokes) and they fit perfectly. Just a suggestion - you might want to try Carlson chokes. I'll never buy another Briley choke. I'm satisfied with the Carlson's but I might try TruLock, too.

Thanks for the info on the Carlson chokes. I use them in my 20 ga Invector choked gun and like them. I see they also have 410 Mobil chokes available now. I really don't want extended chokes for my sxs so may have to order from Tri Star to get an extra flush IC.

I recently purchased a Bristol Silver 20 gauge at Bass Pro Shops Springfield MO store. My brother and I stopped in on our way to Kansas. We saw the Bristols on a rack outside of the fine gun room and had to check them out. I fell in love with the wood before i ever held one. The grain varied widely, but several were stunning for the price point. The guns felt good and wood to metal fit was very good. We could not check trigger pulls due to trigger locks we were not allowed to remove. My brother and I both purchased 20 gauges. Everything has functioned well with both guns. Actions are tight.
WORD OF CAUTION! Every one of the 10 shotguns we held in 20 gauge was stocked differently. We were able to find two that fit perfectly. A few were neutral, the others had varying degrees of cast on or off. If you order from the Springfield store, ask them to check and see if they have whatever cast you need. They were very helpful! i will get a picture posted shortly

I handled a 410 Tristar Bristol at Cabelas yesterday. It does look good. $919. Opened easy but closed a little hard. Opening lever was noticeably right of center when closed.

I will agree it seemed tiny and almost toy like but pointed where I looked.
Called Tristar today and they said few have been returned for problems after almost a year.
