Re: FS: Tristar Viper G2, 20-gauge, 26-inch barrel

Thanks .45colt. I keep looking at their 16 gauge ...
Should mention that I ordered and installed the replacement trigger spring from M*Carbo, which so many Viper G2 users do. The original spring is in the box with the shotgun.

FS: Tristar Viper G2, 20-gauge, 26-inch barrel

Was looking through the gun safe and decided that this new-in-the-box Tristar 20 gauge semi-auto is surplus to my current needs. Perhaps someone here can use it, or has a spouse, child or grandchild who would be delighted to find it under the Christmas tree. This is a gas gun, so expect it to be ver...

No, not a misspelling. The Theremin was invented by a Russian named Leon Theramin in 1920. It consists of two antennas that sense the position of the player's hands, which control amplitude and frequency.
