"I normally don't write bad reviews, but I just have to write this one.
I was super excited when I received this gun, hoping I had finally found my dream shotty. Unfortunately, no.
It is all metal and wood like it says, so it looks great, but it is a really poor field gun. It jammed on me several times when shooting. The pump is very hard to move around. Not like the spring is too strong or anything, it just does not move smoothly. It is also hard to click back in place when you are done pumping it for a new shot.
Now comes to the really bad part, after I had shot half a mag, the gun litteraly fell apart in my hands. The bottom tube that you move the pump back and forth on to cock it, came unscrewed from the receiver. I tried screwing it back in, but it just wouldn't stay. Another issue to note is that there is a large amount of barrel wobble between it and the receiver. Oh and the barrel has no spacers inside, so the inner barrel is just wiggling around in there. If you are willing to deal with all of this, go ahead and buy it. I have to admit it has great range and the hopup can lift COR3 .43g bbs.
Overall, I could have just received a lemon as there are other good reviews about this gun, but I would not recommend buying it.

"Do not underestimate this thing! This is the weapon for someone that likes to sneak around because while you don't have the spread normally associated with a shotgun, this gun can very easily outrange any other secondary and most CQB primarys. I use this in an open field and outdoor wooded area. This will have the enemy thinking there is a sniper firing because it's silent. I use this at a range beyond pistols but under DMRs like using most carbines and rifles. If you keep the screw tight on top the hopup is accurate; not much deviation in groupings. As with any springer, it gets easier to pump over time as the spring settles. The body is HEAVY please realize you will get tired if you don't sling it. This shotgun really thinks it is a sniper, it REALLY wants to be one. It will fool anyone who's getting shot at by it. I have had this for over a year now and my advice is to keep the hopup oiled, keep the barrel clean, and make sure your screws are tight at the end of the day. It will not fail you.
"As promised, heres a very detailed review.
This is well worth $100, and can possibly be able to compete up against AEGs. The only plastic parts are literally only the orange tip, and the air piston inside (which is very very durable plastic). Everything else is solid steel, and the wood furniture adds a classic Sheriff style look and feel.
Now I know real 870s don't have the magazine sticking out, but really, who cares?? In the heat of battle, whos going to notice?? If youre a film maker looking for a good prop, just take the mag out and youre good to go (As for the ejection port, I would recommend that you find a life-sized picture of a real 870 online, print out an image of the ejection port, cut it out, put a layer of clear tape over it to make it look shiny, and then put it over the ejection port of the gun... presto!)
For the lot of you complaining that this is only a single shooter and not a trishot, first of all, its like using slugs, shotguns dont always spread so much. Second of all, trishots will burn through your ammo 3 times as fast... think about that (yes I also have a trishot).
Full metal, literally, except for the...
...Real wood furniture, very classy.
400 fps (if your friend is a pu$$y just say its only 350)
Accurate (didnt even have to adjust the hopup!)
How is it accurate without sights you ask? Dont underestimate the bore-aim...
Heavy (about 10 pounds, same weight as a real one)
Solid (barely rattles so its great for stealth)
Nice sharp sound when you shoot it (I know that on youtube reviews it sounds like my mom farting, but thats only because of the cameras microphone. In person, its more like a loud sharp sting)
Has two sling points (which yes are also metal), sling it on your back mad max style! :)
Magazine feeds very smoothly, and it wont drop out 2 bbs when you reload, feeds down to the last round!
Thats right there are no cons :)
Actually-- Id really appreciate it if they made the magazine tube longer, but its no big deal, still cool ;)
And a little heads up for you film makers, the orange tip is impossible to remove so youll have to use electrical tape or something.
Still, in the case of playing airsoft, there are NO cons :)
