So, you want to try out a shotgun that actually scatters? And you don't want to blow $300 on it? Well my friend, I have the perfect gun for you:


Size & Build Quality:

This version has a very compact feel. It has a sturdy ABS plastic body, rubber pistol grip, rubber pump grip, metal shell door, metal barrel and pump construction, metal sling mounts, metal sights, metal trigger/saftey assembley. It has an extremely durable coat of paint, tough as nails build, and is a manageable sub-compact shotgun. The sights resemble that of a Glock handgun and help you zero in on moving targets. But a downside is that instead of trades you get a warning etching on the fake ejection port.


Performance:

It has a though pump action that gets annoying after a while, but it's worth the price cut. Distance is great, this thing reaches out two around 100ft with 2g bbs and at that distance has about a 7.5ft spread at 25ft it has a 2.5ft spread and has a perfect spread rate, very easily controled and judged; Spread ratio: +bb weight=-spread and visa versa.


Magazine:

Magazine capacity is great for a shotgun, the shells are a nice addition compared to the almost to common occurance of bad mags of cheap single shot mid powered shot guns.


Pro's and Cons:

Pro's:
- Great Build
- Shells are cheap as dirt
- Scatter
- Very affordable
- Good sights
Con's:
- Warning instead of trades
- Not a very clean look, they're are a few random levers that just get in the way, but that's Benneli's fault
- Hard pump


INSERT PICTURE of gun with accessories if you have them, or of where accessorie can/can't connect


Conclusion:

I love this gun, even though the pump is annoying, the pros simply overload the cons. I feel that UTG has really done well, and I would be overjoyed to see more shotgun type weapons go into production from them. The UTG M3 shotgun blasts 8 scatterd bbs, out of 10.

8/10, Great buy for the price.
