This smoothbore delivers quite a punch! There aren't that many combo shotguns and rifles these days, but Gamo's Viper Express continues to interest airgunners because of the versatility of this airgun. In fact, the ability to use shot gives you hunting options other air rifles only dream of.

The special shotshells are sized for this .22-caliber bore. Because the loading port is sized for the shotshells, .22-caliber pellets will be loaded into a special chamber adapter you'll insert before loading. But you'll be able to quickly change back and forth between the shotshells and pellets by inserting or removing the pellet adapter. The front sight is a bead, but if you want to extract max accuracy from your Viper Express, mount a good-quality scope on the 11mm scope dovetails.

Built on the proven reliability of the Gamo 1000 powerplant, you'll get 750 fps when shooting pellets and 725 fps with shotshells from the choked smoothbore. When shooting shot, you'll get 1/4" penetration into 200-lb. compressed paperboard.

Performs as Needed
January 12, 2015
Performs exactly as the purpose intended. . .short range pest control as a shotgun. Point and shoot. Hits hard at short range 20-30' with approx 12" shot spread. Closer shots have a tighter shot spread, 6". Fairly quiet, light weight, easy cocking and handling. My usage is 99.9% shotgun. Installed a Truglo Redot for quick/easy target acquisition.
Received 2nd. shotgun a couple days ago. Ist. one had a defective breach seal. After phone discussion with AD cs rep, RMA was issued and new gun received in a matter of days. Good shotgun for short range 20-30'. .22pellet if needed using the adapter. Nice concept air/shotgun/.22 pellet. Would suspect there to be a sizable market for this item no aw that it's once again available. Very well worth a try. Good customer service in product exchange. Very pleased with this item & purchase.
Pricey shotshells by Gamo only @ 25 per box. Have to use sparingly. . .

Okay, the airgun shotgun, THIS IS GREAT!!!! POOF there it is. Never could get one but I got it NOW!!!! GAMO. I love YA!!!! I had this Red Squirrel in the attic, my wife was goin' nuts. Got out the VIPER, SPLAT RED SQUIRREL is gone. Now I got him at about 50 feet, and one shot!!! . Was surprised, it made quite a mess of him. Loading was easy. Tried the 22 insert, ya do have to watch it, slipped out easy. Definitely gonna reload the shotshells, found that my drones r/c padding is gonna work. Gonna have ta figure out a rear open sight, don't like scopes for quick swinging'
Great quality Accurate shot shells really work Very light to carry easy to cock
lack of rear sight

Fills the niche I needed.

I picked up one of these a few years ago when it was being clearances out. Perfect for carpenter bees and chipmunk s when you only have time to point instead of aim. Shells are expensive but with a little research and practice they can be reloaded. Didn't kill a copperhead from 6 feet though. One airgun I would definitely replace if something happened to mine.
Fun as all get out with flying insects.
Cost of shotshells.

not too bad

I was out muskrat hunting today and had my shadow express with me which is almost the same thing as a viper express. I wasn't finding any muskrat but I was having fun taking out dragonflies with my shadow express for practice with the shot shells. I was taking dragonflies (fairly large ones) at around 25 yards. I've never taken any birds with it but have taken a few turtles and frogs today for practice.

Know what you are getting. A smoothbore .22 cal Rifle , shotting in the 600-700fps range that can accept shotshells. Overall i like the gun. As a rifle, accurace is lacking, Will place a .22 pellet downrange close to where u aim. At 10M, its can hit within an Inch of target. She Shot shells are ideal fo quick offhand pest control less than 10m. Spread pattern is tight as advertised. Most who knock this gun are expecting rifle performance, not smoothbore. Mine does have a strong twang when fired.

I don't take this gun too seriously for hunting. I tried it and all I did was send my target running for cover costing me a full day in the sun waiting for my pest to come back above ground only to be killed with a different gun. It now resides in my gun rack and rarely used. It's an innovative gun but quite under powered. It needs much more power if it is to be taken seriously. For people like me that collect inovative guns, it deserves a place in my "museum". I take it out for demos and fun shoots but never going hunting with it again.
