"I had bought this gun along with a few others in hopes that it would be a good back up and a change of pace whenever I don't feel like using my sniper and otherwise feel like running around.
Gun FPS and Accuracy -
I am always skeptical of the "shoots this amount of FPS" whenever I am on any airsoft website and rightly so as sometimes they are exaggerated to make the gun seem more appealing, however it seems at least for this gun that the FPS rating seems fairly accurate with .020 gram bbs. I have been accurately been able to shoot all my targets within about a 55 meter area with little to no movement on the bbs (using standard shooting procedure with a still target and 0.20 gram Goldenball Bidegradable bbs). At the longer ranges it can still hit targets precisely but not so accurately. All of my friends cower when I take the gun out to use because apparently it stings pretty bad up to the 55 meter mark.
What Comes in The Package -
What basically came with my gun was some cruddy bbs which i threw out immateriality, 4 shells which each hold around... i haven't really counted... but seems at most 15 or 20 bbs when I'm out and running about.... a shell holder which is virtually useless if you're moving around a lot, as the shells will pop out (could be used for aesthetics on the gun without the shells), a crummy but useable speed loader, an unjamming rod, and a useless carrying strap... all packaged in a box that with a Styrofoam bottom and cardboard top with a picture of a different gun on top; a typical repackaging procedure on Airsoft Megastore's part
Quality of the gun -
the main good features about the gun are the hop up, relatively easy pumping, and accuracy at a closer range. the hop up is easy accessible and improves the guns range about a good 20 meters or more depending on surrounding conditions. The gun itself is a 'two pump' system, you need to pump towards then away from yourself otherwise the gun will not fire.
In terms of bad qualities about the gun, it is made from a hard plastic which seems very very durable so long as you don't throw it full force at a hard object.... even then my gut says it may not break... so long as you don't hit the pump action of the gun... it seems to be a little more weak and has some wiggle room as opposed to a higher quality shotgun. There are also no rails, which means you have to use the iron sights unless you plan to jury rig something to the top of the gun to use... which I wouldn't reccomend... i mean the iron sights aren't too bad... but they aren't all that great at the same time out of my personal preference
All in all I would highly recommend this weapon to any weekend warrior looking for a nice gun to bring along as a back up in case they forget to charge their battery or something in their more expensive AEG... I bought it myself for that reason 70% off and now that i have it I'd say that I actually may have bought it for a little more, maybe at 40% off even if the opportunity was there... Originally I was supposed to get the retractable stock version of the weapon but Airsoft Megastore took a week to tell me it was out of stock after my order which is a little complaint I do have with their customer service... but that doesn't belong in this review.
If you're looking for a good back up shotgun for a reasonable price this is definitely the best way for you to go"
