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.

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.

Pros
The best spring gun (and only) available

Cons
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. Sights are spot on with pellets and shot shells. Its more powerful than I had expected.

Pros
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.

Cons
None!

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.

Pros
QUIET BACKYARD SHOOTING,SHELLS CAN BE RELOADED WITH # 8 OR NINE SHOT USING 1/4" HOLE PPUNCH AND THE TOP OF AN EGG BOX.

Cons
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!

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

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

Bought this for dealing with a bird problem at my place of employment and it has yet to impress me. Having been versed is using air guns and firearms for almost 20 years of my life I'm sure my aim and form are fine, but I've shot at several pigeons that were sitting or on the fly and have yet to kill any. The gun is built well for the money and the shot shells are a neat idea, but unless you are 15 feet away from a static target you are not going to hit much. Cool concept but falls flat on performance.

Pros
Well built for the price Can use different types of ammo, 22 and shot shells Decent plinker / range toy

Cons
Would not use it for serious hunting Performs poorly on moving targets over 10 to 15 feet Shooting .22 pellets cam be tricky with the factory "sights" Shot shell ammo is a little pricey

The shot-shells only contain 20 tiny pellets - with an inch spread between each (average of 10 shots) at 20 feet. NOT as effective as .22 shot-shells used in regular rifles, which contain at least twice that number.

Pros
Well made.

Cons
No de-cocking mechanism like RWS provides in all its older (and newer?) rifles.

Far more powerful and accurate than I ever expected. Tight grouping at over 15 yards, without a scope!
