Product Information:
I have played airsoft for 5 years, here is my review:

This is a good bargain as far as airsoft shotguns go. It has an internal reservoir which eliminates the use of shells like other gas shotguns. This is also good because those shells are easy to lose and they break occasionally. That being said, this shotgun shoots good for the first 5-6 shots after a full fill, then you will notice some drop off in pressure... If you like to modify guns I have heard good things about constant air rigs on these, where people hook up a paintball remote, regulator and tank to them to keep pressure up. It does shoot 5 BB's at a time which allows for a good spread and even though its a pump it is easy to get into a fast cycle rate. I bought a real steel pistol grip with collapsable stock and it fit.. Just had to get the right bolt, so that was pretty cool.
The replica feels very solid and you will notice a little noise when moving around due to the pump handle moving... but in a cqb scenario this is a great choice. I used mine a few times in outdoor skirmishing as a backup to my AEG and used it only on occasion. Of course, on the occasions I did use it, I had a lot of fun.
I like the fact that this uses 6mm BB's instead of 8mm, because its cheaper and easier to find BB's for. I would stick to using .20 or .23 BB's in this due to the lack of hop up. Anything heavier and you will see significant decreases in range, which is already lacking... which brings me to my next point..
One BIG problem I see with this shotgun is that it doesnt have any hop up. While in CQB this doesnt matter much, it would be nice to get a little extra range out of it for outdoor skirmishing. My KJW 1911 on green gas shoots farther and more accurately than this shotgun. A lot of people try to make their own hop up units on the stock inner barrel, I have as well... and honestly it doesnt give it much more range. Putting a tightbore barrel in may give it a few more yards, but still it wont compare to an AEG.
Overall I think this is a great airsoft shotgun especially for the price.
