"Pros: long range shotgun, heavy weight and good for CQB.
Cons: The Spring guide messed up and I had to unscrew it and fix it(took like 10 seconds). So you can't really put 40 bb's in the mag without it failing on you.

"This is an awesome shotgun! Before you buy there're a few things to consider though.

It does weigh a lot for being so short. The weight feels right though.
It's single shot, (every pump / pull is one BB). Like using slugs.
The spring is a BEAST, and it should be for a 400FPS spring shotgun, but while other shotguns you can pump it with one hand even, you need to put a LOT of effort to pump it. It's kind of entertaining to see people pump it sometimes.
Because it's around 400FPS you might be disallowed to use it for close quarters, which is normally the point of a shotgun.
At more than 50 feet it's hard to shoot accurately due to a lack of stock and long barrel. (Using .25s it tends to spread more than you'd expect sometimes)
The real wood handle is worth the extra five bucks, however the pump portion feels almost like cork or some kind of imitation.

I did have a few problems with it. I had to practically dismantle it once because if you pumped it and held it at less than a parallel angle to the ground the bb would roll out, and dismantling it isn't particularly easy.

However, this is a great shotgun, and it tends to hurt. I'm impressed enough with this one that I'm planning on buying the longer version (with the stock) once I have money and they're in stock.

"I rate a 4 because it is pretty heavy,it is true the full metal and real wood,lighter colored wood then shown,takes 0.25 BBs.When my gun came in,it jammed after three shots but was fixed by the unjamming rod provided.Hop up is adjustable.Hard to cock. Despite most things I would totally recommend this gun to anyone. Hope this helps. :)

"Alright! I haven't done a review in a while and I'm glad I get to start again with this machine. This shotgun has a great build; near zero wobble with none in the rear grip. However, if wobble is present in your model, just tighten it up with the included allen key. The real wood is definately worth the extra ten dollars over the other model and gives it a better feel. As many will tell you who have handled this weapon, it has weight to it. For such a small gun (about 22 inches longest), its heaviness is that of a real shotgun.

The heavy metal magazine can hold about 20 rounds and I usually don't go over that for fear of it stopping up the pumping mechanism. Why that happens, I do not know. At least once this weapon has jammed on me, but was fixed by the use of an unjamming rod. The plastic orange tip is quite noticeable and can certainly be removed. However, that is illegal, yada yada yada, and it would be advised not to do it. Anyway...

I am very pleased with this weapon (even if the hop-up seems a little tricky), and would recomend it to someone whom I do not know because I would hate for any of my friends to get such a unique looking shotgun as this. Overall, very well built and totally worth the price.

p.s. This thing hurts...
