The TriStar Viper G2 Pro Series of shotguns is comprised of semi-automatic, gas-operated guns. These models are made for the ultimate in reliability and functionality. Models are available with either wood or synthetic furniture. Guns have 3-inch chambers, so shooters can use either 2 3/4-inch or 3-inch shotshells. These shotguns excel whether you’re using light target loads or heavy waterfowl loads.

All models have a removable choke system that utilizes Beretta/Benelli Mobil Threads and ship with three choke tubes: IC, M, and F. A choke box and wrench are also included. The receivers of the shotguns are Cerakoted for incredible durability and resistance to use-related wear, making these solid field guns. On the wooden furniture models, high-grade Turkish walnut with cut checkering and semi-gloss finish is used for a classic aesthetic appearance. Other features include a rubber recoil pad, standard fiber optic sight, and shim kits. The Viper G2 Pro is backed by a five-year warranty.
