Our take: The AGM M500 tactical shotgun with a retractable is a departure from the AEG/Gas powered Airsoft "norm." Sure, AEGS are stunning in their rate of fire, but nothing can compare with the feel of a realistic, shell-fed pump action Airsoft shotgun. Lock, load, and pump just before drawing down on an opponent and unleashing a barrage of BBs.
Featuring an integrated adjustable Hop-Up system and a reinforced barrel to maximize not only close-quarter tactical efficiency but also long-range accuracy. And shooting at 350-400 FPS, we can vouch for the indisputable intimidation it brings to bare on the playing field.
This M500 shotgun is equipped with a solid full stock that has a comfortable rubber butt-plate, so the M500 recalls the feel of shooting skeet with its actual real-life counterpart. Because of the rubberized rear plate on the stock, it fits snug against the shoulder, yet weighs in at a balanced 4.5 pounds to help reduce fatigue during extended skirmishes.
The package comes with four shotgun shells, each which hold 30 rounds (enough firepower to keep you running and gunning for some time), an external shell-holder to secure your additional shells to the stock for easy reloading access, along with a handy speed-loader to get you quickly into the game and a carrying strap for more versatility.
A retractable stock further increases versatility on the field, as the length of the rear stock becomes adjustable and hence more suited for ALL types of Airsoft battle.
For the player that?s looking for a shotgun which can handle the rigors of both CQB and outdoor play, and a gun which possesses a bit more finesse than what is needed by AEG operators, the new M500 by AGM is where it?s at.
