TriStar is hoping to capture the next generation of shooters with the expansion of their popular line of Raptor Youth shotguns. The company has released a 20-gauge TriStar Raptor Youth model with a Muddy Girl camouflage finish, as well as a version with the Vista Next Micro Print finish.

According to the press release, each of these new gas operated models features a 24-inch barrel, a fiber optic front site, swivel studs, and three choke tubes (IC, M, F). The TriStar Raptor Youth also has a 3-inch chamber to accommodate 2 ¾-inch or 3-inch shells and allows shooters to use both light and heavy waterfowl loads.

“For many, the first memories of hunting and shooting are from when they were young, and often times these memories are some of the best,” said Ryan Bader, sales and marketing manager at TriStar Arms. “The new Raptor Youth models are quality and affordable firearms that are perfect for young shooters and will hopefully provide them with lasting memories.”

The manufacturer suggested retail price for the 20 gauge Raptor Youth camouflage is $489.00, while the 20-gauge Raptor Youth Muddy Girl pattern is $459.00. See below for additional details.
