When two barrels don’t quite cut it, you need the Chiappa Triple Barrel Shotgun ($1,629). This impressive twelve-gauge shotgun has three 18.5-inch barrels — two side-by-side, and one on top — all fired by a single mechanical trigger. This combination makes for a shotgun that is incredibly fast to shoot, and always reliable.
Each barrel has an individual choke, allowing you to have three separately-adjusted chokes in the same weapon. A two-part stock lets you use a full stock, or a short pistol grip, making this a versatile home-defense weapon, and a really fun gun to shoot.
Over 64,000 gun fans have descended on Las Vegas for the first major gun show of 2016 – and a triple barrel shotgun is among the new weapons on display at
the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show.
Called the Triple Crown, its maker Chiappa launched new models at the show.
At first glance, it looks just like a normal shotgun – but actually has a third barrel above the traditional two.
The shotgun was first revealed in 2013, but this year the firm behind it has two new versions, a 20 and 28 gauge.
Both the new gauges have a 26-inch barrel and the overall length of the shotgun is 43 inches.
The new shotguns will retail for approximately $2,039 – $2,079, according to Fox News.
A single trigger fires all three barrels in succession in a right-left-top barrel sequence that is reset to start with the right barrel each time the action is opened.
The line includes the Triple Threat, designed for home defense, and a sporting version called the Triple Crown.
At the show Colt also introduced a new AR called the Expanse M4, dubbed a ‘starter assault rifle’
The Expanse M4 weighs 6.44 pounds, and is finished in black matte.
About 62,000 credentialed attendees walked miles of aisles on the showroom floor in Las Vegas, ogling and handling chrome six-shooters, knives, body armor and assault-style weapons.
The Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show isn’t a sales event. No one can buy guns or gear on the spo
