"Super fun shotgun, has good range, great spread, easy to point and shoot. Only con is that after less than half a day of play the pump arm broke. It's super duper cheap metal, I managed to snap the rest in half with just my hands. I bought the marushin steel loading arms and of course they are slightly too big to operate the action fully and load more BBs. So be warned you might have to do some mods to keep this gun running long term. Really sucks they went so cheap on the most critical part of this gun, because the rest of the internals look like you could run them over with a truck. I ended up selling it because I couldn't figure out how to make the new loading arms work, but I still miss this gun. If you have access to a CNC machine or 3d printer or something and could make your own replacement, then this gun is a no brainier buy if you play cqb or even field with medium lines of sight.
"I love this shotgun!! Don't pump the gun
With one hand. Treat the gun well and it
Won't break on you... Simple.
-5 shot burst!!!!
-3 rows of bb feeders (each hold 45~50)
-Nice and heavy!
-Have to buy a gas can to accommodate
On the field because each fill up takes
Up one row of bbs
"I have been relatively happy with this weapon. However, as everyone else has been saying, the two metal slides that connect the pumping and ejector slide mechanism breaks off almost immediately. Unfortunately it does this because the metal used in it is too cheap to hold up with constant racking. Even more unfortunate is the fact that racking this thing is so much fun to do.
One of the more frustrating aspects of this gun is trying to opening it. If there is one thing that infuriates me about a replica airsoft gun, it's having the pins and bolts that are responsible about dissembling the actual gun, but serve no other purpose than aesthetics on the replica. Some of the bolts are actually just INDENTS in the gun's frame.
Nevetheless, it's a very nice looking gun that will impress and astound at your local CQB field with it's performance (WARNING: It's a bit of a gas-guzzler)... Granted that you have the know-how to fix the metal sliders and are familiar with your local gunsmith.
NOT recommended for new or inexperienced players.
