"Got this gun about 3 months ago, and I am very satisfied with it. Here are it's pros and cons...
- well built for the price, good use of plastic, metal and rubber
- the three bb burst is a very cool firing mode
- good fps
- good ammo capacity for the included shells
- top rail
- the front sight is actually crooked (probably a manufacturer defect)
- can be difficult to cock back
- the shell may shoot out of the gun when changing the shells
Overall, for the price, this is the best airsoft shotgun and i'd highly recommend it
"just want to say this is a great shotgun for the price love this as my 2nd instead of a pistol. i highly recommend this for an cqb needs. i original bought this for a zombie game my local store was putting on i was planning on it as my 2nd but my friends gun broke before the game started. so i gave him my aeg and i used this it worked great for a primary, and u dont see this style shotgun without a stock so its not something everyone else has
spring is a little stiff can take a little to get used to
"So I just got this in and gave it a quick test run just for some initial impressions.
Comes with a 100~ Rd speed loader, 2 shells, cleaning rod, some no name bb's that I threw out, and a big plastic target. Build quality wise first impression is that it's rather solid especially for the price, the entire outer barrel, front sling point, and the door for where the shell goes are metal, where the rest of the gun is polymer. The shotgun's pump and grip are rubberized.
Holding the gun normally and what not there is a slight creak if you happen to twist it, but it's really nothing to worry about since I'm pretty sure all of the generic name Tri-Shots do that, other than that it is comfortable to hold and has a great sound/action to the pumping mechanism, which again is surprising for something around this price range.
I'm happy with the the actual shooting of the gun so far with what I've tried, works great with the Evike branded shells, and judging by eye since I don't have a chronograph around seems to be shooting around 290~ fps or so with .25s and has fairly decent range which I'd put around 60-70 feet max is where it seems to drop off. But seeing how this is a CQB gun and engagement distances are around 25-35 feet at most, so this is perfect. There is some minor spread, which is what I was looking for, and seems on target with the sights out of the box. I did notice one minor issue where the last 2 pumps of a shell that it only seems to feed 2 bbs, then 1 bb, it maybe just that the barrels need to be cleaned and that the gun needs more time to break in but regardless I'm not worried about it.
As for accessories for the gun, this gun fits perfectly in the NCStar scabbard, which I've attached to the back of my vest. Works great with the Evike branded shells as I've mentioned earlier, and with the top rail system, which again is plastic, you can mount a reflex sight or whatever you feel like on there. There's plenty of room on the rear of the gun to throw some Velcro on to for a shell strip as I've done. I'm a little annoyed though that this gun isn't compatible with the DangerWerx Tri Shot rail system though, at least without modification so keep that in mind.
All in all though, for the $40 that I've paid it's seems to be a fantastic gun, though I'll have to see how it preforms this weekend at the field.
