Recently, the entire RAINBOW Airsoft Team purchased these shotguns in preparation for Code Red Airsoft’s 2011 Halloween Zombie Night. For only $50 dollars, we were a little skeptical on how these things were going to work. In the box, we had: the shotgun itself, one shotgun shell, a sling, and instuction manual. The shotgun feels and appears to be made out of a decent plastic, but still nervous because of the abuse our team put on guns.
The shotgun comes in many different styles. It is made with a full stock, collapsing barrel, no stock with a rail system, and shorter barrel. The team decided to purchase all the different types.
When it came time to test, we fully loaded the shell with 30 bbs. Each shot from the gun shoots 3 bbs at once, which gives you 10 shots before you have to change the shell ( the whole team bought extra packs of shells). What makes the shotgun special, is the 3 seperate barrels that allow the 3 bbs to shoot accurately in the same pattern every time. The gun shoot very accurate up to about 50 feet, past that the spread on the bb pattern is too great. At the 20 foot range, i found that the spread is ideal, and take a lot of OpFor out at that distance. Obviously the gun also works great up close. The 330 fps also makes it safe for those close quarter engagements.
After getting a lot of use out of the guns, we can safely say that they exceeded our expectations with durability. These shotguns can take quite a bit of abuse, and continue to last a long time. The only problem we had, was when Ranger found his gun exploding after getting caught between a player and a wall while sprinting by (will destroy any gun). For $50, you can’t get more for your money as far as airsoft guns go.
