Tristar Viper G2

TriStar Arms' Viper G2 semi-automatic shotgun has been a favorite among scattergun fanatics for years thanks to its performance and affordability. So much so, in fact, that shooters can be forgiven for wondering why TriStar would update this much-loved model ... until, of course, they try the all-new G2 PRO! New for 2023, this much-anticipated professional-quality upgrade enhances the user experience with features typically reserved for high-end shotguns at double the price.

The Viper G2's reliability is already perfect, so for the PRO line, TriStar made enhancements to user controls. Oversized operational hardware helps shotgunners achieve next-level performance, with gloved hands or bare. There's an enlarged triangular safety, over-molded rubber grips on the stock and forend, as well as an enlarged magazine well for easier loading. 

The Viper G2 PRO Line is available in .410, 28, 20, 16, and 12 gauge in the beautiful Bronze finish. .410, 28, 20, and 12 gauge in Silver, and camo options in 12 and 20 gauge. Pricing ranges from an MSRP of $855 for camo models up to $1,050 for select Bronze finish guns. For more information, visit
