"This shotgun is awesome. I'll get straight to it and say you have to tighten screws rather often so go ahead and loc-tite 'em up. It is a great field shotgun. I can match some people's AEG ranges with this. I use this in a wooded area with plenty of sightlines and it always feels comfortable thanks to the collapsible stock.

"It's really hard to find a quality airsoft shotgun that's constructed of metal or at least ABS plastic and some metal. Most shotguns are cheaply made and don't last long. Low quality plastic, low muzzle velocity, inaccuracy, and a myriad of other factors have contributed to the airsoft shotgun market being a rather depressing sight.

Until one day, I stumbled upon Echo 1's Advanced Tactical Shotgun series. The lineup had me instantly. ABS polymer construction, metal mag tube, metal optics rail, iron sights with a ghost ring, adjustable M1014 stock with a metal buffer tube, and a precision barrel packing 400 fps rounded out the features on this thing. I looked high and low, on the back corners of the internet, and even on Craigslist for one of these things cause they were out of stock everywhere. Come to find, they had been discontinued 3 years earlier. It was heartbreaking to find out. But a guy who I contacted earlier about buying one called me and said that Echo 1 was partnering with Bravo to create a new shotgun model. I was intrigued and asked for more details. A few days later, I found the very model on Evike and Airsoft GI. While I love both companies, I chose Evike cause of their quality service and attention to detail.

After reading up on the specs for this thing, I was hooked and had to have one. So I ordered one and it surprisingly came 3 days after I ordered it, and that was with the cheapest shipping. I took it out, immediately feeling the solidness of the construction, the weight, and the sheer intimidation this thing brought with just its looks. Along with the gun, I ordered 2 extra mags for it. Just target shooting with this in my back yard was insane. And as far as performance on the field, it stands up to AEG's and GBB's and can compete on their level. Now for the breakdown.

Pros:
-full metal receiver, stock, barrel, inner barrel, and piston
-high quality ABS polymer M4-style pistol grip and forend
-perfect velocity for field (395 fps with .20g)
-realistic weight (about 7.5 lbs)
-stock is super solid, no wobble, and even has a comfy rubberized buttpad
-manufactured by Echo 1 USA
-metal optics rail
-DEAD accurate and gives out some gnarly welts
-only $90

Cons:
-magazine sticks out the bottom of the well and it looks kinda cheesy
-the forend is tough to pump for the first 100-150 rounds, but gets broken in and helps you build forearm muscle (it helps a lot to put medical grip tape on the forend and pistol grip for comfort)
-stock does get wobbly after heavy use, but can be easily fixed with a hex key
-if you're not careful, there are some sharp edges you can get cut on, plus when retracting the stock, WATCH YOUR THUMBS-- I learned that the hard way

All in all, an amazing shotgun. The cons are more annoying than they are actual problems with the gun. As long as you're careful when retracting the stock and are ok with having a sore forearm after long days on the field, then you're good. Note: The fps advertised by Evike is kind of exaggerated. It's not 420-440 fps at all. When mine was chronoed for the first time, I shot 5 rounds into it. They came out ranging from 393-402 fps with .20g. A little too hot for CQB, but it makes for a great field secondary. Plus no one will see it coming during pistol/shotgun games. This thing is also Tac City Full Force Night-legal and Insight Interactive Big Boy Night-legal. I would definitely recommend this shotgun as it's only $90, $75 cheaper than the least expensive G&P M870. Great gun, great price. I give it a 5/5.

"This is my honest review of this product.

First off its pretty much a pump action sniper rifle. This gun has range and is dead accurate with .25s. In no way is it 420-440 fps, not even with .20s. Using my Chronograph It was 390 fps with .20 and 350 fps with .25s. Gun is extremely well constructed. Full Metal! Strong body and integrity. Overall this is a great gun.

I only have two issues with it. First when the stock is fully extended its is very wobbly. Second (I just might have gotten a janky one) occasionally after pumping it, the trigger won't set, and it is un-fireable. I still have yet to figure out how to avoid, but I believe it has something to do with making sure to cycle a full pump action. Also I really want to avoid taking the gun apart.

Pros:
Shoots hard
Accurate
Strong/Full metal
Retractable stock
25 round magazines (Could be good or bad on your preference.)

Cons:
Wobbly stock
That's my only con as I can't justify the firing problem might be only with my gun.
