Product Information:
here isn't really much in this review that hasn't already been said by other people, but I'm just writing this to emphasize that you really oughta get this gun.

First of all, whenever I find some sort of shortcoming with this gun, I always remember that it cost $25. When I think of that, all shortcomings pale in comparison to the bang-for-your-buck factor.

The range is quite simply amazing. It outdistances all AEGs I've seen (G&G, Echo 1, even the G4). I really wish I could give a number, but I'm really bad at gauging distances. It's no sniper, obviously, but you could almost use it for that. FPS wise, I have no idea. It's definitely at least 350, but I don't have a chrono, and Airsoft GI didn't send me a chrono slip with the gun (grrrr...). I have yet to try the poor man's chrono test (shoot bottom of soda can; if it punctures, FPS _ 380).

The construction of the gun is solid. Naturally, the only metal parts are the trigger and magazine trap door. The rest is just ABS. Nothing really special, but it's pretty well put together.

The hop up works just fine; no problems like what another reviewer noted. The gun also has a few interesting features. First, if you don't pump it all the way, pulling the trigger does nothing. Second, once you've pumped it, you can't cock it again, unless you're holding the trigger down, and then you're slam firing.

I do have a few gripes. The stock is pretty stiff to adjust. The (plastic) iron sights are really low, which is good, I guess, but unless you have the stock out a ways, you can't see through the sights. This doesn't really bother me though, cuz I rarely use the sights, and anyway, I keep the stock out far enough to see through. One really weird quirk is when you're slam firing (or "running shooting", as the manual puts it), the bbs go flying way, way up, way higher than usual, however you may have the hop up set. I can't imagine for the life of me what causes this. The shell holder (or "bullet bag" as the manual puts it) is useless, because if it's upside down, the shells just fall out. This could be fixed with tape or someting, but I haven't bothered. It also blocks the iron sights, but again, no biggie. The sling is hard to figure out, but fortunately, my dad could put it on easily enough. I'm not gonna bet much that it's gonna last very long, either.

BUT, besides, the minor inconveniences, this is a wicked gun, and for $25 it's crazy good. Plus, you get four shells (30 rounds each times 4 = 120 rounds), a speed loader, a sling and a ramrod. Overall, total sickness.

P.S. I don't quite know what this says about the gun, but I was cleaning the barrel with the ramrod, and it got stuck. I tried pulling it out, but the darned thing broke off. I was sitting around, despondently dry firing it, and the broken piece shot out! The performance of the gun hasn't been compromised at all, interestingly. Crappy ramrod.

Pros:
INSANE value
Comes with a bunch of useful stuff
Really good range
Wicked accuracy
Solid build quality
Cool safety features

Cons:
Useless shell holder
Stiff stock
Whacked slam fire
Kinda cheesy safety

Product Information:
I was ordering, and realized I could get free shipping. So, I got a friend to order this gun and 5000 TSD .25g bbs (fps is a little low, next time he's going to order .23g). HOLY CRAP this thing is AMAZING. For those that are wondering, the shells work as mags, and are NOT ejected each time you pump it, so you don't have to worry about losing shells. A great gun, and for the price it WILL satisfy and then some (I might get one now too).

4 and a half out of 5 stars

Pros:
-Accuracy
-Power
-Price
-Adjustable stock
-4 "Shells" or 30 shot mags, and they drop out of the bottom when you hit a button
-Way better than Wal-Mart shotguns
-Scares people with little Wal-Mart spring pistols

Cons:
-Lots of stock wobble
-Hard to adjust to iron sights, the stock gets in the way
-Shell holder is crap
-Sling is hard to attach and figure out
-Chambered bbs, have to shake it to get them all out
-Too much fun, need lots of bbs


If you are on a budget GET THIS GUN!!!!!

Product Information:
So I got this gun today and it look really nice. For first time Airsoft G.I. buyers be ready for a 4-5 shipping time. Overall this gun performed really well. The stock velocity is amazing and when I shot this at the side of my house it actually pierced the plastic siding on my house!!! I'd say this shotgun has quite an impressive range and its much more powerful than other shotguns you can buy for $25. Although I haven't had this gun for a while, I'd recommend it for backyard airsofters like me. Not the best in the world but good for the money. When I got mine it came with: shell holder, 4 shells, speedloader, unjamming rod, and the actual gun.

Pros:
-very sturdy feel
-very powerful
-manual is pretty good
-when you release shell it falls out like in a real shotgun
-way better than those $25 shotguns from Walmart
-very large gun
-relatively accurate and it shoots straight

Cons:
-the bbs shoot up then come down (I need to adjust hop-up)
-shells are kinda of cheap plastic
-retractable stock is kinda stiff
-trigger is to close to the trigger guard
-the shell holder isn't very good, if you flip gun upside down the shells will fall out

Product Information:
This shotgun is perfect for anyone who wants the shotgun experience without spending the hundreds of dollars on a gas rifle. It is almost entirely ABS plastic except for the trigger, internals, and shell chamber latch, however, it is still very sturdy and reliable. The FPS (feet per second) with a .20 gram BB is about 390-410, and this is evident from the impact damage and range given with this gun. That is a lot of FPS for $25, and the retractable stock adds for a more personalized shooting style. Pick one up today, theres no other way to understand the feeling until you're holding one for yourself! rating: for price - 10/10 overall - 8.5/10

Pros:
- Light Weight (approx. 5lbs)
- Great FPS (390-410 w/ .2g BB)
- Sturdy (strong ABS plastic)
- Ammo (4 shells holding 30 shots each = 120 shots)
- Affordable (only $25)
- Value (Fun shotgun experience for the price of most ammo bags)
- Hop-Up (hop up is on the side of the gun, ready for adjusments)
- Retractable Stock (for CQB and close quaters manuverability)


Cons:
- Chambered BBs
(if you think your out of ammo, make sure to flip over and try to rechamber some BBs that could be stuck in the gun, even after shell is out!)
- 1 Shot at a time
(this is a single firing shotgun, so while the action is same, you will be only putting one round out a time)
- Hop-Up
(the gun already shoots a little high, so I did not need to put any hop at all {best accuracy with .4g} guns may vary)
