Shoot pellets or shot! Load special .22-cal. shotshells loaded with No. 9 shot, or put .22-cal. pellets into a chamber adapter (metal insert).

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.

The all-weather synthetic stock has soft rubber checkering on the grip and the forearm. The Monte Carlo buttstock has a raised cheekpiece on both sides, making this suitable for every shooter.

The bull barrel has a full vent rib and is topped off with a bead front sight. Customize the let-off with the two-stage adjustable trigger. When you cock the rifle, an anti-beartrap mechanism automatically engages to protect your fingers. If you want to scope the Viper Express, pop your favorite optic onto the 11mm scope rail.

Things I liked:

It's really nice for a smooth bore. I was afraid non-diabolo pellets like Crosman penetrators would tumble because of the air pushing behind it, but I was pleasantly surprised to see it hit my mark. Out of all my pellet rifles, this is one of my go-tos when I want to try a crazy new pellet or something. I like how the barrel spine is also 11mm and flush with the dovetail rail going down the whole top side. I used a Beamshot under barrel mount to attach a laser sight and zeroed it using a laser bore sighter. I've been on a custom Crosman deep dive lately and I pulled the Viper Express out recently and I was all like, wow this big ol' thing here is a beast. It's no magnum piston, but it's a different animal with a different vibe.

Things I would have changed:

It only has a front bead sight because it's a shotgun, and that's cool, but finding a rear sight in case I want to use pellets at any decent distance is really hard. I've been through all kind of aftermarket sights like Truglo shotgun sights, flip up sights and so on. I may get a match grade rear sight for my Crosman and maybe that will also work for this, but I've resorted to using an under barrel laser sight. There was also a piston version of this but it's been discontinued. The springer is just fine though. I really with there was more development on Gamo's end when it came to the Express series such as different rounds or airgun models, but this was about it.

What others should know:

The shot shells can be fun, but they're kind of silly. This may be marked as a shotgun that uses shot shells, but I feel like pellets are where it really shines. It's a pellet gun that happens to take shells, not the other way aroind. I believe Gamo miscategorized the shells as hunting shells. I'm no hunter, but I'm 95% sure that these are more of a novelty that should be nowhere near animals. That alone may have given this shotgun a bad name, but hopefully after reading this you'll have a different expectation than some of the bird hunters I've chatted with in airgun groups online.
