Product Information:
Time to be honest. Look at this replica and consider what you will use it for as well as what you will need to use with it.

I purchased the same brand, but different model (not from ASGI), and used mine for years (maybe 3). I like it, but it in no way deserves 4 stars. Why?

1. limitations
2. fore-end
3. overall design

There are great things about the ACM M180A2 in general. As others have said, its durable. The manner in which you receive it, however, depends on shipping & handling from all parties involved: wholesale, retail, shipping company.

If you do not like what you see when you open the box, then it falls on you and the retail to move forward since in all likelihood returns would be based on them and their policies. If the shipping company is at fault, I'd say work with retailer in order to straighten out the issue (good retailers will work with you. maybe not act like a lawyer but will help in any way they can).

Let's move on since I'm reviewing the Shotgun. My replica came in perfect condition. no broken parts, it was fine. so out the door I went to try it out and a few days later, onto the field. Using the fore-end was tough. I like there is some effort involved in using it. When my adrenaline is rushing, I don't want to break what I bought during normal operation. This is part of how durable the replica is. The issue is with the grip however.

The fore-end is smooth, which caused my hands to slip. This may be avoidable with certain gloves, but I did not have any during the time. This caused me to strain each time I tried to cock it. okay first few times, but in a jam and doing it several dozen times a round will get tiresome. the fore-grip (unlike the franchi) is not designed with your hands in mind. there is no curvature or grip added to it.

If you take off the top rail for sights, etc. it looks a little cool, but is worse. it can be done with screw drivers, Philips, but don't. it opens a hard sharp edge to the fore-grip. So keep in mind that is there. For me, I hit it against many things and that's why I say, its durable. However, rubbing up against things (including clothes and packs) is not pleasant. why I stated above, consider what you will use it for."
If you are wanting a fun secondary, possibly could fill that role. So here is the second part of the second sentence at the top.

There is no place for sling. Not for mine at least, and I don't see one here nor on the others. I made my own which has worked. Used the fore-grip on the front and trigger guard. Had to use smaller clips. If I didn't want the fore-grip, I tied the the sling around the barrel. I'll use rope too. It helps for my look, but might not for you. Oh, and I used mine as a primary.

Despite my 2 star rating, I am happy with my purchase, though I am now looking for something better. consider what you are buying and either make it work, or get something different.

durable (mine was)
fun to use
cheap (if you know what you're getting)
rails (in the front)
shotgun shell magazine

Fore-end grip
top rail can get in the way
extras are unnecessary (and add to the price)
