"If all you read is this first line, know this: the gun shoots hard, far, and it's dependable. Now, on to the finer details, when I used AMS's recommended .20 gram Goldenball BB's, I was chrono'ing about 360-365 FPS. I then took it out shooting, and pierced about 30 aluminum cans on the first 2-3 shots from 30 feet away, so for snipers (like myself), I enjoy this particular shotgun because I know if I ever have to go CQB, I can trust this durable shotty to handle itself out there. Now, pros/cons
Durable, well built ABS plastic and metal barrels
Nice, realistic weight (6 pounds)
Sling is quality, will not snap like others
Shoots hard & far, ACCURATELY
Nice feeling when you pump the shotgun
Shells run out of ammo FAST. (Do yourself a favor and spend the extra 7.50 and buy three extra shells. This model comes with only one, and in a game scenario, multiple shells will save your A**.)
Buttstock is a little hard to extend; retracting is fine
Buttstock will also come off if you pull to far back when extending; however, it will not fall off by itself. Just a little heads up.
Other then those microscopic cons, this gun is AWESOME. I have no problems with it, and don't let the Double Eagle brand fool you, this is one quality piece."
