Product Information:
At the price, this gun is an excellent buy, especially for a beginning airsofter. I have no idea why this is $5 less than the version without a long barrel, but I can't complain. The long barrel is purely for aesthetic and does not actually improve accuracy (but does not detriment it either) because the 3 inner barrels for the BB's are the same length in both guns.

Anyways, I was so happy when I bought this gun. The barrel and the pole on which the front grip slides (sorry I don't know as much gun terminology as I should) are both metal, as are the internals (I believe). The rest is ABS plactic. Both grips and the butt, however, are a nice rubber.

The trap door on the bottom, because of how the spring on it works, will not want to open if the magazine well is empty and unless it is upside down or pointing up. However, if there is a shell in there, it should open at any time you activate the release.

The gun itself fires quite nicely and the cocking, after getting used to it a tiny bit, is very easy. The spread stays together pretty well. At the guns effective range, the spread will extend to about the size of a human target, which is perfect.

The range is the only thing that lacks for this gun. It is pretty great, but cannot be altered with the hop-up, as the hop-up in this gun is fixed. I'm sure that you could change the hop-up if you took apart the gun, but I would not recommend it. The range is still nice for this gun in the situations in which you will be using it, and it is easy to hip-fire. Also, the sights are white painted iron sights, which makes them extremely easy to see.

I had a great time with this gun today, and I am playing another game on Saturday. If you are entering large battles or competitions, I would recommend buying an AEG, but this could be a great gun for a beginner or anyone on a budget.

One occurence I have encountered is that you can move the cocking mechanism back and load BB's into the chambers, but not enough to cock it back. Then once you actually cock it, you load 3 more into the chambers. With this weird 'glitch', I have fired 6 BB's at once, which isn't a problem in the least, but more of an advantage, however I do not know if that effects range or anything like that. It did not appear to for me, but your first 3 BB's can come loose in the chambers (because the other 3 pushed them forward) and roll right out of your barrel if you hold the gun at a downward angle.

NOTE: To empty the chamber of BB's after removing a magazine, open the trap door for the magazine well (or shell chamber, whatever) and pull the cocking mechanism most of the way back, but not enough to cock the gun. About 4 BB's or so should fall out of the back of the barrels and out of the magazine well.

Should you buy this? That was a rhetorical question, and the answer to it is YES.

Pros:
Good for someone on a budget
The gun is durable
The sling is functional and good
Fires 3 BB's at a time
Safety is easy to reach and operate
Shells are easy to load and eject
Sights are accurate and painted
Speed loader works with shells perfectly
Rubberized grips

Cons:
The hop-up is fixed
It only comes with 1 shell (just buy some more and this will not be a problem)

Product Information:
This gun is really sweet. The gun is full size and weighs a lot. it feels really sturdy also. the metal on the gun is great(barrels, and exterior barrel). the rubberized grips are comfortable. a nice touch is the painted sights, that allow quick and easy aiming, even in low light situations. The long barrel version's three barrels do not extend the full length of the exterior barrel, and are probably the same length of the other versions of this gun. accuraccy is good; sprays about 12-18 inches at 25-30 yards with .2gram bbs and will shoot a bout 40-50 yards without much arcing. make sure to buy extra shells because the gun only comes with one 30 round reusable shell( thats only 10shots). The bottom line is that the gun has huge intimidation factors, with equally huge performace and bang for your buck.

Pros:
powerful
good looking(very real)
gun comes with a sling and speedloader
painted sights
enough metal
heavy
pumping is a smooth action
tri-shot is a great thing to have!

Cons:
only comes with one shell
finding how to use hopup is really hard
lefty shooters may find that they hit the saftey button(right next to trigger) with trigger finger all the time.

Product Information:
When I got this gun it had something loose on the inside. Instead of dealing with customer service I seimply opened the gun up and fixed it myself. It turned out it was a lead weight that was not Secure. I personally hate it when they weight guns. Other than the loose part on the inside it's performance is the same as the marui (not as sturdt though) If you want a shotgun buy this. If you can find a used Marui shotgun for under $100, buy that instead, the maruis last forever (my friend has a 7+ year old M3 that has no problems) and don't have lead weights inside that come loose.

Pros:
Cheap
Tri-Shot
Same performance as marui

Cons:
Loose lead weight
Body has some flex to it
Not nearly as reliable as Maruis.

Product Information:
Awesome shotgun! The shells hold 30 bbs which is good cuz some shells hold like 10 which is really crappy. It's awesome for pistol and shotgun wars. Its got good fps like 320-350 somewhere around there. The bbs it comes with suck though; my friend who has the same gun thinks theyre .12s painted white. The only bad thing is that the hopup is kinda bad. It took me forever to find out where it was and its kinda tricky to work...its really weird. And at first its sorta hard to cock but it gets easier pretty soon. But it shoots 3 at a time and is overall an awesome gun. And the long version is freakin sweet it looks like a real shotgun! The sights are good cuz my last shotgun didn't have any and now accuracy is way better cuz aiming is easy as crao now but i know someone whos front sight just broke off which is bad but idk. Mine are fine.

Pros:
Long version looks realistic and awesome
Shells hold a lot
Shoots 3 at a time
Good fps
Sights make aiming easy

Cons:
Weird hopup
Sights aren't that sturdy
Having to reload shells in the middle of a round can be dangerous

Product Information:
This is a really great shotgun, especially for the price. I love the look of it, and it is quite intimidating. It has a nice finish quality, and the rubber grip and pistol grip are great. It has just enough metal to feel very solid, and the plastic is very high quality. The metal parts are: Shell cover, trigger, outer barrel(s), both sling areas, and sights. It has a rapid fire system, which works by holding down the trigger while pushing the grip forward, so that it shoots as soon as the end of the slide's travel is encountered. It is very fun to shoot, and accurate enough. It weighs around 4.5-5 pounds.

Pros:
-Solid Design
-Nice Aesthetics
-INTIMIDATING!!!
-Comes with a decent speed loader/sling.
-Sling can be mounted 6 ways.
-Slam-Fire
-Accurate
-Weight feels accurate.

Cons:
-Fake Semi/Full auto selector feels cheap, but isn't something you touch that much while using it.
-Cocking might be difficult for weaklings.
-None other than those!
