The CA870 Shotgun by APS has proven itself to be one of the most favored Airsoft shotguns on the market; revered for its realistic operation and construction, the APS CAM870 quickly became the go-to Airsoft shotgun for players looking for immersion. After listening to the feedback of Airsofters and industry professionals, APS went back to the drawing board to make the CAM870 even better.
The result is the CAM870 MKII. Identical in exterior design and build quality, the CAM870 MKII retains all of the hallmarks of the original CAM870 such as the pump action and shell ejecting action. APS however, has entirely redesigned the CAM870 gas system for the MKII system. Instead of using a complicated charging rig and having to charge each individual shotgun shell, the MKII gas system holds the gas in the bolt, requiring the user to only have to charge the bolt, reducing time spent loading and cost of shells. This convenient new system allows players to quickly top off their shotgun with a gas charge on the field with portable CO2 canisters (approximately 7-8 shots per full fill; 50~ shots off a single 88g CO2 canister).

"I'm rating the gun here, not Evike. I had issues w/ them but that's not the gun.
I guess I'll just go through a pros and cons list as everybody else does.
- Absolutely beautiful. Every part you stare at looks perfect. Feel of everything is super great too.
- 6+1 shell capacity is pretty great
- Reloading wasn't as bad as I had figured
- Shells are pretty durable
- Accessories! Stock extensions, shell catcher, Co2 charger, 2 shells, and 50 wads/toppers included in box
- Range is good for a gun of this type
- Occasional jams but almost every time is solved by bringing the bolt back most of the way and forward again, chambering the shell correctly. Could be more learning curve as well.
- Magazine tube sometimes stops the loading of shells after 4 shells. Rack the bolt back/forward and load the rest of the shells and it's good (though you shouldn't have to do this at this price)
- $550. Like sheesh. That's a lot, but for someone like me who was obsessed with it, it was worth it
- Co2 works for about 7-10 shells for me after a full fill, which is more than what the gun holds so I see no issue with that
- Shells aren't as pricey as previous generation APS shotguns
"I been a proud owner of one of these for a year now and I have to say this is among the most practical training tool there is. The new updated version making the gas charging much better is amazing!
If you are in the market for the best Airsoft shotgun, the most realistic Airsoft shotgun, or simply the best looking AIrsoft shotgun, look no further!
P.S: Convert yours to an MKII if you have the old version!
I just got mine today and I have to say that EMG/SAI collaboration knocked it out of the park yet again! This for me is a more "playable" version of this shotgun simply because it's a LOT lighter than the steel version and a LOT cheaper too. Believe me, I have one. Externally, both guns look alike aside from the green and red fiber optic sights. This aluminum version is more of a Player's shotgun than a Collector's shotgun. It's tons of fun to play with and it's as real as it gets. This is based off of an APS shell ejecting shotgun, so all APS shells will work. The shells hold approximately 12 bbs and it has no hopup. Great for CQB games but not preferable for field games. The shotgun came in a dark gray box which also included 2 shells with SAI logo, C02 shell charger, Magpul butt stock extension, Shell cups, Magpul sticker, Shell catcher and a Front rail adapter. No paper toppers though for some reason.
Overall, highly recommended to all Shotgun players who are looking for a top notch quality shotgun and realism. The price is reasonable especially because there's tons of extras included already, which if bought separately would cost about $100. But most especially, If you're a fan of Salient Arms International, you just gotta have this. It's well worth the price.
