I am in Westminster, in Carroll County. I have the 12G Viper G2 silver shotgun. Beautiful gun, easy to service, so far been great. Walmart sells the Raptor (at least the ones I have been to.), and it is made by a different manufacturer. If I recall the G2 Viper is made by Armsan. I am not home so I'd have to double check. If you get to Westminster any and want to look at mine, and check it out, just shoot me a PM.

Thank you John and Sirex for your feedback. I've looked at the websites for the shops noted and I don't believe that they stock the Vipers. Based on the comments in this thread and the reviews that are online, I will probably just order it online. Leaning towards the Viper G2 Silver.

Good choice.

Tristars at Walmart tend to be the "Raptor" line. I have one and am pleased as punch with it. It'll knock down clays and birds both with ease and it's run flawlessly for me so far. Light weight, easy to break down and clean, and thus far, very dependable. I paid something like $280 for it on sale last year. Needed a "cheap" 12ga for float-hunting ducks and geese on the Monocacy so that if I flipped, I wouldn't be losing one of my classic semis.

I know this thread is getting stale, but I agree with all that say
Tri-star G2, Winchester SX3, etc. I went with the SX3. Its fantastic.
I'd add the Weatherby SA-20 as a very good buy as well thats under the prices of the Winchester/Browning.

MY list of buy on 20Ga Semi's would be (in decreasing price order):
Benelli Montefeltro (runs super clean with the inertia system!)
Browning Silver
Winchester SX3
Weatherby SA-20
Tristar G2

Used Rem 1100
Used Rem 1187
Used Win SX2/SX3

Wouldn't by anything in the $ range. (or off my own list!)

Having worked on the horrible gas system on these, I don't recommend them at all.
