i have the Tri-Star Kral Magnum that i bought last year on sale for $275. i had shot a few semi-auto shotguns in the past, but never owned one. i bought this simply to see if would enjoy owning one, before spending a huge amount of money on one first.
all in all, it's not bad. it's no Remington 1100, but so far has digested everything i have put through it. i would suggest one if a person were on a budget or wanted a inexpensive beater shotgun. but if a person has a bigger budget, there are much better choices.
