"Got this gone on 8/23/12 at the new Evike store, its very big and very nice. The staff was fast even tho they are going through renovation.

Got the gun, Very nice rubber grip and pump, the metal is nice on the barrel and the shotgun shell hatch.

PERFECT fps for CQB Arenas, Awesome 3 Burst spray but one Con is; the gun is a bit long and hard for CQB but it is not a big deal

Sling mounts are a tight squeeze for my Bungee sling you can put a key ring on it and your problem is solved.

I do recommend this gun, its fun and good for CQB. Buy extra shells here on evike.

"I've had this gun for about 2 years now, and never had a single problem with it. It's outlasted two of my AEG's. For close combat, you cannot find a better gun; I've gotten more kills with this gun alone than with all of my other guns combined. The only thing that lacks is range, so just have a sufficient backup for the longer shots (I use a kjw mk1 gas non-blowback). Also do NOT buy this long version like I did. The inner barrel length is the same as the shorter models. If you buy this model you will end up sawing off about 6 inches of your barrel like I did (while the bb's were on their way out of the inner barrel, they would hit the outer barrel about 50% of the time, resulting in poor accuracy and range). After sawing mine down, the range and accuracy increased by 200%, and it became my favorite airsoft gun I have ever owned. So, make sure you buy the SHORT model. If you plan on using this as your main gun, get one with a stock. If it's going to be a secondary, get the model that doesn't have a stock. Both shoot the same, but a stock will help you control your shots. The stock-less version will be easier to sling or sheath as a secondary. Again, this is THE best gun I have ever owned.

-great for CQB
-spare shells are cheap (you're going to need them)
-awesome spread effect
-slam fire capable (but not recommended)
-capable as primary or secondary

-incapable of long shots (get a sidearm)
-shell release mechanism is a poor design (mine was good at first, but now takes some force to drop out the shell, not a big deal to me but when I lend it to a friend they always seem to have trouble with it)

"I've nothing but good things to say about this. While it's not a complete 100% replacement for an AEG, it IS skirmish-able as a primary, if you're patient and pick your shots (and don't get caught out alone). It has about ~90ft of solid accuracy (the BB flying out of the upper-most barrel will reach, the other two will drop off). Feels solid, but it's a bit on the fragile long as you don't plan on throwing it across the playing area, you should be set though.

Mine met an unfortunate end when I ran full tilt into a tree with it...up until then, it never failed to meet my expectations (and often exceed them). That said, I'd steer you towards one of the less expensive models...for $50 you can get virtually the same thing.

"I just received this gun about 2 hours ago. When I first opened the box, I was very impressed with the overall appearance of the gun. When I got the shell magazines loaded up and went outside to shoot it, I was just as impressed with the range/accuracy as I was with the overall appearance. I haven't used it in an actual game yet, but I'm going to have a game in the woods behind my house in about 3 days. I have a very good feeling that this gun will do a good job.

-Not very heavy
-Shoots three BB's at once
-Easy to cock (at least the one I received is)
-Accurate up to about 80-90 feet
-Comes with 4-30 round shells

-Not that much FPS (but it still hurts)
-If you half-cock it, and then cock it fully, it shoots 5-8 BB's and sometimes gets jammed

Overall, I highly recommend this gun for beginners and experienced airsoft players alike.

"i got to handle one at a gun shop it was really sturdy no were near what a normal spring gun feels like definitley worth the buy im getting one soon love it buy it WOW! what can i say great gun sturdy not that hard to cock and nice tactical look
by Ben H. on 10/29/2008
"This was my first airsoft shotgun, and I was pleasantly surprised. Decent performance with a nice spread. Only negatives I can think of: the rear sling mount gets covered by the shell holder and if you only partially cock the gun it can jam up with bbs. When I let a girl shoot it she half cocked it twice, both times I just removed the shell and fully coked it, all the extra bbs fell out thus preventing a major jam. Other than those minor issues I think this is a good weapon for the price.

"It's the same length as my m14 Socom mod, which is just short of a full size m14.... It's long in length, but its got great range. It's light to, only a few pounds thanks to its lightweight structure.

"hey sally can you tell me how long the shotgun is? because im getting it an we play in the woods but i dont want it to be huge

"I'm not usually the person to like shotguns that much, especially gas. But this one so far has taken to my liking, being my first multi-shot shotty.

Gas shotguns cost more money, time, and effort to maintain. Plus there pretty expensive to start with. Thats why I got the spring :)

But on to performance. This thing is definitely skirmishable, and is more robust than the UTG. (not saying that the UTG is bad, but its just this has more metal content and better plastic. But whatev.) It has 4 shells, instead of the 2 standard from the UTG. However, you can buy 6 more for 15 bucks.
It comes with a speedloader, which is great for loading. This thing can hit targets with a great spread, from up to 120 feet.

"First off, the product image is a M4, not a M3 as stated in the product description. Disappointed that Evike sent a Koer K1207L instead of a M56AL as described in the product page. In addition, I bought the "M56AL" as a pre-order, and had to email sales to ship the gun days after the gun had been in stock for a few days. Pre-order should be shipped by the store proactively, not by a customer prompting the store to ship an item.

Anyway, the gun is pretty sturdy, no wobble with the full stock. Since it's new, the pump is pretty stiff. Sometimes you could pump and it'll feel like it's cocked, but isn't. The 3 shot burst is cool and not really much need for a sight. Goes through BBs quickly, so having extra shells help.

It fits in a scabbard, but the rear sight with the added height of the rail would get caught on the scabbard seam when taking the gun out. The gun is also too long in the scabbard and can be unweildy to carry.

- Good build material for the price
- Came with 2 shells
- Fun to shoot

- Not the gun in description
- Stiff pump
- Not for CQB
- Magazine door is a different color

"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.

"I just received this today and I've been using it non stop. It came with a target and the thing is shot to pieces. I made it my goal to shoot the target till it fell down and it just did. Anyway, the gun fire awesome. It has a good weight to it, much heavier than my M3S. The shotgun is a little hard to cock, I'm used to the M3s which is a bit more than half the length of this one so it took me a little bit to get used to it. I like the rail on the top however, some of my optics wobbled around, and the stock seems to be loose. I checked closer and the stock isn't actually connected to the trigger, it's two separate prices which is annoying because the stock wiggles now. Other than that, it's a good gun and I recommend it.
by Michael T. on 12/02/2010
"Great Shotgun. Not necessary to get the "long Version" The barrel length's are all the same, and this one is $75 compared to $45. Also, it says it comes with a spare shell, mine did not. Also, buy your own sling, the sling that comes with it is a joke
by CJ E. on 09/13/2008
"Clone of the Tokyo Marui Benelli M3. Better than the UTG Multi-shot. If you want an M3 that will last forever, buy the TM. If you want something to mess around with until it breaks, buy this.
by austin h. on 08/12/2008
"ok i got this gun a few days ago and i love it ok first off it looks badass second off it shoots nice ok lets face it for a spring gun it shoots far as hell first round i used it i got 5 kills + a safety kill ok the only downside is is if the enemy is wearing a bdu jacket or a vest chances are they wont feel it , it doesnt leave to bad of a sting but other then that its nice to have
