Found some guns in a closet

One of my friends gave me these guns to clean up and get them shooting again. Call them loaners




This one needs a new hammer spring and for some reason, the bolt can slip off of the hammer when pumping requiring disassembly to get it functioning again.

Was an autotrigger placed on many vipers? doesn't feel real smooth.




I think the hopper is glued onto this gun. I can't get the SOB off and don't want to torque it too much 'cause I don't want to ruin a weld!!

I shot them both on HPA and the shoot nice, esp. after sitting around since the mid-90s. Another buddy has a bunch of these that he isn't using but won't part with, including an autoviper he picked up at a yard sale for $200- ish back in the late 90s.

What a find!!!!

I don't believe the autotrigger came on many (or any) Vipers...at least not that Sheridan style of AT. I know some had the pump rod style.

The one arm bandit could be glued on....most of the old ones are super tight press fit though.

The glue is my concern. He gave me an old LCD angel as well, and it has a very old apocalypse rail with very very old glue on the set screws to keep it from coming out.

I did make a few with that style auto trigger, not many. the cocking problem is a combination of wear to the hammer, and trigger sear. (auto trigger wears them round) the loader has been painted, it might have paint in the elbow, making it fit even tighter. over time it welded itself to the ball drop. try holding it under hot water for a while, might loosen it up some.

Cool. A rare Viper

Rick, how many autovipers are floating around out there?? I'm trying to get my hands on one that a friend picked up from a neighbor in the mid-late 90s.

He can correct me if I"m wrong...but I recall him say that there aren't that many....12-15 that he did. He has two right now on his wall....so your friend has one of the others! You need to rescue that poor guy! Or at least give me his address so I can pay him a visit.
