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.

I have been shocked at the knockdown on small animals like pesky house sparrows at close range. I've been shooting air guns for 40 years and have basically every type, but in my opinion, this one is the most fun to shoot. You definitely need to learn its capabilities and stay within won't take a squirrel at 40 yards, but when house sparrows are attacking your chickadees and bluebirds...I haven't missed a shot yet. Especially when rodents or house sparrows are moving around, it gives you that bit of wiggle room to still hit the target when they scoot to the side right when you shoot. It's also an amazing gun for my younger hunters to practice with. I have literally killed thousands of mice, rats, house sparrows, and starlings over the years. Where was this gun when I was a kid? But I feel privileged to have one now! I absolutely love this thing!!!

Feels great in my hands; feels like a real shotgun. Relatively quiet. No kick. Ultimate air rifle for skittish mice, rats, and house sparrows. Perfect survival gun.

I would LOVE a .30 or .35 caliber version of this thing!

Had mine converted to nitro piston, and it's still junk.

Nothing really.

You might kill a mouse at point blank range. Took me 3 shots to do one in. It's no good as a pellet riffle either. The pellet adapter will destroy the breech seals.

By MichaelDecember 17, 2020

Be sure to buy extra 22 adapters and shot shells

I like the fact that you can shoot shot shells as well 22 pellets, easy to cock and feels good in your hands, well balanced

One thing I will change at later date is to add a Red Dot to it as the rifle I received the rail guide down the barrel was put on crooked so when your aiming the Barrel looks bent which really throws you off. The barrel is straight but does not look like it. only gave 4 stars because guide rail on barrel was attached crooked

By KirkUSADecember 19, 2019

This gun is beutiful, well made, feels and handles just like a gunpowder shotgun. Its easy to handle and load, and will take down a crow at 20 yards. I am very impressed with the consistant patterns. And is fun to shoot! Perfect gun for teaching young kids on how a shotgun works. My favorite spring gun in my collection.

The best spring gun (and only) available

I hope that future models will have a stronger spring to increase FPS and distance. Also, wish there were more selections in the ammo ( pellet count and or loads).

Not a substitute for a real shotgun, but this little gun does what I need it to do; it is very short range and quiet. Just what I needed for rattlesnakes (3 dogs bitten) in my firearm restricted, gated, but rural horse community. It has enough power to kill a small snake. For such purposes, I only need an effective range of 20 feet or so. It does not have enough range (that's good) to carry or ricochet into my neighbors property.

My Gamo Express air rifle is superb! Performs flawlessly and is a blast to shoot!

Shoots pellets and shot shells


By JamesUSAMarch 20, 2019

My Gamo Express air rifle is superb! Performs flawlessly. Sights are spot on with pellets and shot shells. Its more powerful than I had expected.

Very Nice styling & a solid build. I love that its almost completely covered in weather resistant polymer accented with rubber incerts. Accurate advertised fps proven over my chronograph.


By MichaelUSADecember 15, 2018

What a HOOT!!! After a LOT of experimenting, I finally figured out that I could front-load 10-11 #9 pellets in the front portion of the shotshells. A light smear of Door-Eaze Lubricant to hold the extra load in, gives a nice tight spread @ 15.'

This is my second one. I bought this one for my son when he saw how great mine was on the pests here in Florida he really wanted one .I use it for close range shooting at the many small snakes in my yard since there are about 5,000 acres of wet lands facing my house I get many snakes and other pests and at the short range it works on them. Some times I can't even sit outside there are a lot water moccasins from the creek passing my yard.


As long as you don't try to inhumanly try to kill larger pests and stay about 30 feet back you'll do fine

Waited till this went on sale then got this as a Christmas present for my 10yr old boy this year. He could not wait to shoot it, so in 15 degrees and wind we went out and set some cans up and had a blast. The gamo viper shotshells (bought here) actually group well at about 10 yds (30ft). We set some old magazines up with pictures of animals on it and fired the shells to see the pattern. It looked to be deadly on any kind of pests like rats, chipmunks, Starlings, Sparrows, snakes etc. At 10yds the shot went straight through the thick magazines with a nice tight pattern. It is not meant to be a long range shotgun, 10yds max and under is just right. I was actually impressed with it and so was my dad. For a smoothbore and open sights the .22 caliber pellets shoot very good groups at 20 yds. The gun has some pop to it, will be perfect for groundhogs in the summer time with the .22 pellets. I got the H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme Pellets (bought here). They penetrate lots further than the .177 cal pellet guns do. So far he has bagged about 15 Starlings out of the chicken coup a couple sparrows with the shotshells and a squirrel with the above .22 pellets. The damage to that squirrel at 15 yds was great, the pellet expanded as its supposed to and went straight through both shoulders of the squirrel! I better get back on this sight and order more of the pellets and shotshells, i may even order one of these guns for myself! Also, the gun actually came with 2, .22 pellet brass adapters. 1 was in the gun and another in the box. Nice having a spare in case one is lost! Have Fun!. When you order guns or supplies from this company it comes to you professionally boxed & packed right. Everything i order from them is always in perfect condition when i open box up!

Easy to Load, easy to cock, fun to shoot.. Deadly on Pests...

Safety is a little weird, wish it would be on the side at trigger guard, not right in front of the trigger.

For the shot shells are they reusable and what type bbs do i put in them

asked Luka from USA

Yes, they are reuseable. Plug the base and overshot with packing peanut piece. The kind that sticks to themselves when you get them wet. That foam seals great and is light. Most of the shell is empty, if you fill them too much the FPS drops. 18 grains total shot and wad weight is fast, it drops from there with more weight.

Randall from USA

The shot shells are not reuseable. A one time use.

Mark from USA

Does this come with the 22 pellet adapter?

asked Tanner from USA


Mark from USA

leonard from USA

Robert from USA

Will this shotgun ever be in stock again? I bought 3 boxes of the special Gamo ammo for it years ago when I thought I was getting one, but the sale fell through! Now I have ammo and no gun. :-(

Joy from USA

We were able to work with Gamo to bring this gun back to the market. They are in stock and available now!
