Video Review: TriStar Arms Viper G2 Pro Semi-Auto Shotgun

Versatile, reliable, durable and affordable ... here's why the TriStar Arms Viper G2 Pro is the NRA Gun of the Week!

posted on March 4, 2024

What do NRA Families want in a shotgun? Durability, reliability and affordability are always going to top the list, and TriStar's Viper G2 line of semi-automatic shotguns has it in spades. It's been a go-to shotgun for a long time, but that doesn't mean there was no room for improvement.

New for 2024 is the Viper G2 PRO line, continuing that tradition with upgrades typically reserved for high-end shotguns. The Viper G2's reliability is already at peak performance, so for the PRO line, TriStar made enhancements to user controls to help shotgunners achieve next-level performance, like quicker handling with positive control of the firearm, gloved hands or bare. Upgrades on the Viper G2 PRO line include oversized operational hardware, over-molded rubber grips on stock and forend, an enlarged triangular safety and an enlarged magazine well. 

In this terrific video review courtesy of our friends at American Rifleman, you'll get to see why this terrific new upgrade to the Viper G2 lineup is likely to secure itself a place in your gun cabinet ... and how it got to be the NRA Gun of the Week!

Want one for yourself? 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. MSRP $855-$1,050 depending upon model chosen;
