The Marushin 8mm m500 Shotgun is one of the best shotguns I've ever touched next to the UTG Combat shotguns they throw out. Bought this little over a few months ago and although the box u get it in is misleading (looks like a trench gun from WW2 minus the heat shield and Bayonet). But I was very pleased to see what I had bought and I didn't even touch it right away. I stared at it awesomeness absorbing the moment.
First thing after picking it up is it feels real with its all metal body minus the stock which is AVS plastic but you wouldn't know it from a distance. Has noticeable moving parts to throw in that realism. Has a good sound when you pump it.
Once I gassed it up and reloaded it (2-3min loading) what a pain that was. I was ready to test it. After firing this beast I noticed the BB's don't spread as much but that's not bad cause your aiming for 1 target but if he moves a little out of the way maybe one will hit cause they don't start to spread till like 15 or so feet.
I've hit a couple people with this and they say u know when you've been hit. The 3 BB's help just in case they didn't feel the first one they got 2 more close by hahaha
Carry gas: This thing will suck it dry in no time
buy those sling holders
Find a way to load your BB's faster cause this thing sucks to reload.
-Great distance for what it is.
-great for CQB
-Feels great in your hands makes it seem its real
-Mostly metal with moving parts
-No worry about slugs aka shells
- Pain to reload cause you have to pull the tube out then feed the bb's by hand
- Wish there was such a thing as a 8mm Speed loader cause that would make reloading this sucker 20x's faster. Best I did for a speed loader was take a BB bottle and cut the top off enough so that the 8mm would fit but I'd rather have something more accurate when I'm reloading and makes less noise.
-Pump doesn't stay still unless pumped and I hate having my guns cocked for a long time.
-Yes hogs gas
-didnt come with sling holders (the bars that connect the gun with the sling)
