[SG-M500LSB]

A very awesome, but finicky shotgun. I won't echo what everyone else has been saying, I think we all have got the point that it is a very nice, gas operated, 5 burst, high capacity shotgun. And in the two weeks I have owned it, it has been an awesome CQC primary for me.

But one bad thing I must point out to potential buyers that I was not aware of, is how fragile this weapon can be. The two pieces of metal that connect the pump to the loading mechanism are made of very poor pot metal, and will break. From what I can tell from internet research is that it isn't an issue of "if" it will break, simply "when".

I'm sure doing the whole "terminator" style cocking method will expedite this process and we've all seen written on the gun's page, and in the manual, about how not to this, but even being gentle and taking care to rack the shotgun smoothly won't be enough, mine lasted me two weeks of constant play before breaking.

Research yields a decent guide for replacing the slide arms, which can be purchased as aftermarket upgrade parts from other over-seas retailers and modified to fit, and I have since reached out to Evike for help obtaining the "factory support on parts" stated in the gun's description.

Overall I still adore this weapon, I haven't seen any positive review of this gun that I don't totally agree with, but this HUGE negativity needs to be considered before purchase, especially for inexperienced airsofters who are uncomfortable with weapon disassembly. Hopefully Evike can come through and deliver on their claim of "factory support on parts", hope this helps!
