"for a CQB war, this seems like the ideal weapon. Not nescisarrily so. first off, it, like most airsoft "shotguns" is only single shot, defeating the purpose of spray and pray tactics that are so useful in close quarters. second, as mentioned previously, it is all plastic, and becuase of its larger construction, its not very durable, so be careful with it. as far as range and power are concerned, it is rather disapointing. while accuracy is totally acceptable, range and power (poorly fixed hop up mixed with low velocity= fail) differ greatly. overall, a weapon for the novice, who is expected to take great care of their poor "shotgun""
