Best Shotguns from Airsoftmagazine
If you want a very quick overview, we have made a table below with our 3 special airsoft rifles:
There are many possibilities on the market for airsoft shotguns. You have to think carefully about the weight, material and power of your own game. Take a look at our best selection below.
M56A Double-Earth Division
The M56A Double Eagle is a multi-jump shotgun with replica fire. It loads 3 BB’s in 3 separate barrels for each action. The design of the 3 barrels is efficient because it is the most accurate way to shoot multiple balls at the same time.
With a 30-cartridge capacity and a speed of 290-310 feet per second (FPS), this robust shotgun is also surprisingly light. It is an excellent option for a modest price.
The JAG weapon distribution gun uses green gas, which makes it look like a real shotgun. The green gas tank contains more than 120 cartridges and you can switch from mode 6 to 3-shot mode.
The gun is manufactured on a metal base at 300-330 FPS in flame arrest mode and 370 FPS in single shot mode.
Double eagle M4 AEG
The Double Eagle M4 is a 2-in-1 Airsoft M4 rifle with adjustable lower barrel, making it a unique and fun combination.
The rifle has a semi-automatic and fully automatic firing mode, a magazine with a capacity of 280 tons and space for additional accessories such as optics. Fire speed 320 FPS.
The pump gun has a removable magazine and an adjustable vacuum. With a fire speed of 320 FPS, this spring-loaded cannon offers you many possibilities on the battlefield.
CYMA P799ALaser Riot Shotgun
The CYMA P799A is a pump-action shotgun, making it an interesting addition to your Airsoft gun collection. The BB can be placed directly in the barrel of the shotgun instead of loose cartridges.
When loaded into the weapon, the BB can fire at approximately 300 frames per second. 50 BB’s can be loaded at once.
A functional laser pointer and an effective area are also included if you want to use them.
CYMA CM351 Overview
The CM351 is a pretty scary shotgun (if you can’t control it) because it’s easy to use, shoots at high speed and has three inner barrels (translated, it can fire BB’s in three shots). It also looks realistic and is heavy to handle – like a real shotgun.
The body is designed using ABS plastic and metal parts (outer barrel, trigger, safety devices and slings) to make it more realistic and durable, and the operation of the spring pump is simply ideal for an air pistol of this type. You feel like a real member of the special forces every time you let him sleep (and the sound is unbelievable)!
The CM351 is the type of shotgun you will like at first sight, because the quality of the assembly is solid and the overall construction simple but durable. Not to mention the fact that it is not as good as expected for the quality it brings to the table (the interior is quite similar to the Tokyo Marui M3 rifle)!
The smooth pistol comes with 3 replicas (30 bullets each), making loading easy (you do not have to worry about loading). It is easy to keep the bowls ready in the bag and just take the empty bowls out and put them back in again. Loading is done from the sink, which is protected by an easy-to-open door; all you have to do is press the handle and the door opens to unlock the empty sink. The housings are located directly under the outer cylinder, which simplifies the process.
I like the pistol grip, with which you can hold the gun quite easily even after a few hours of play, but also the fact that you can wear it on the harness (the arches are firm and you can’t be too careful with them).
Another aspect that made me decide that this design is the best as a whole is the assortment. Considering the price and the type of weapon, I was able to make accurate shots at a distance of about 30 meters, which is pretty good!
The only drawback is there’s no sight, but I don’t think guns need a sight. Plus, this gun can fire three bullets at a time, so you still have to hit something!
In general, the CYMA CM351 is my first choice when it comes to choosing a shotgun that works surprisingly well in a CQB situation.
To be honest, I think the only reason I put the Classic Army CA870 in second place was the single shot (still a resilient pistol). Otherwise it would certainly come first because of the almost complete metal housing and the beautiful design!
This weapon looks real and is equipped with a 20-shot magazine, which makes reloading something you won’t often do on the field (provided you use your shots responsibly). The magazine itself is small, but it can be downloaded quickly and is well positioned so that it does not fall over when pumping.
I like it that except for the metal parts (suitcase, trigger, magazine and barrel, barrel and trigger guard), everything else is made of polymer. So when you hold it in your hand for the first time, it feels like you have a real weapon in your hand.
Margin Note: There is also a CA870 version, which is slightly larger and has real wood for the neck and buttocks (details that are polymer in the version I mentioned).
In addition, the robust construction makes the barrel as smooth as oil. Nothing clicks and there is no power (ABS-specific plastic weapons), which proves that this is a weapon you will hold for years!
Another interesting aspect of the CA870 is the shooting range – its high speed and accuracy make it more suitable for sharpshooters (it is equipped with an adjustable upward jump). Unfortunately this also means that it will not be as effective in CQB situations and you may not be allowed to use it on some Airsoft fields. But the good news is that it can be raised and lowered by simply replacing the spring.
In general, the shotgun is very pleasant to use, but it is quite large and heavy, so be careful if you are a beginner. It comes with a rubber buttock that allows the weapon to be attached to the shoulder when aiming, which is very comfortable. But on long laps it can be difficult to maneuver if you don’t have upper body strength.
Finally, the Cyma CA870 is a beautiful rifle with amazing features and a fantastic shooting sensation. On the other hand, the rebound is quite sensitive, so it can be difficult to adjust it in the field, but you can easily repair it with a little glue.
Tokyo Marui M870 Rating
If your budget is a bit bigger and you want something more powerful and robust, the Tokyo Marui M870 can be a great choice.
The housing is made of zinc (for the receiver), aluminium (for the barrel) and durable ABS plastic (for the buttock and grip) with a rubber coating on the buttock. In general, the structure is solid, you feel good in your hands and the weight is pleasant and healthy.
I love the adjustable jump, which allows you to shoot at different distances (from 8 to 25 meters) without losing accuracy. It also has viewing windows on the top rail and slots for mounting the telescope or other accessories. The shotgun also has two different firing positions: Boom and six shots, which means you can easily destroy enemies if you have enough ammunition. To switch from one mode to the other, pull the protective cap, which unlocks the fire selector.
The M870 contains a 30-shot ball that fits into the chamber, with the ball located directly in front of the trigger guard. To access it, simply activate the alumni and the shell door will open. For me (and many other players) however, the fact that the M870 only needs one grenade per charge seems a bit unpleasant. Because if you are within the 6 snapshot settings, you only have 5 snapshots before you have to reload!
This cannon is powered by gas, so before you go into battle, make sure you have enough fuel. The gas tank is located in the layer plate and is easily accessible by removing the rubber plate. To charge it, you need a compressed gas tank. Once loaded, you can load up to 100 cartridges.
I really like this weapon because it is powerful and fast and has an incredible sound! However, the other two I mentioned before Tokyo Marui will give you the same satisfaction on the spot if your budget can’t be stretched that far.
Low cost options
The shotgun is amazing in the CQB situation, but not everyone can afford the luxury of buying first-class products. So I thought it would be better to add a few cheap options for people on a small budget and beginners. Because if you buy a gun to fulfill your fantasy, the cheap gun will be perfect.
BBTac BT-M47 Revision
This is a single shotgun with a sawed-off barrel that fires at approximately 300+FPS. However, if you swing very fast, you may be able to fire several balls at once.
The weapon is light but strong and does not use grenades. The magazine can contain 20 BB’s at a time, and the action is really sweet in price. Of course the case is made of ABS, but the barrel is made of aluminium for accurate shooting and greater durability.
The BT-M47 performs well in terms of accuracy and range, but is faster with 0.12 g balls. You should also bear in mind that it can get stuck when using heavier logs, but this is normal.
UTG Remington 870 Revision
If you’re looking for something classic, the UTG has made a fantastic copy of the famous Remington 870, which was used by law enforcement. This is the effect of a spring pump (i.e. you have to hammer it after each shot) and it fires only one ball at a time, but the feeling is fantastic!
This weapon works perfectly in all CQB situations, thanks to the 6-position bed and the rubber application cushion that allows you to use the shoulder for a better position. The magazine contains 20 BB cartridges, but you can also find the model that comes with the Hi-Cap (about 100+ cartridges). Otherwise I sincerely advise you to buy it separately – it will save you a lot of trouble on site!
The adjustable upward jump makes it possible to shoot accurately at distances of approximately 110 to 130 feet. The smooth pistol is powerful (330 FPS with .20g BB’s), and the handle of the pistol works perfectly with the hand protection system for easy handling.
Not to mention the fact that the 870 is equipped with a compact spring-loaded charger for fast on-site charging. If you feel that the gun is not enough, the rail system (only 4 rails) allows you to add some accessories from the laser point to the flashlight and the telescope.
The only less cool aspect I should mention is that the magazine releases a few BB’s if you take it out (if it’s not completely empty).
I hope to be able to offer a wide range of possibilities for both beginners and experienced shooters, but in most cases the shotgun is a fantastic weapon. After all, who wouldn’t want to make a legendary movement where a rifle is stretched and held straight with one hand?
All I’m saying is that in the end you need to know why you want the gun and then decide how much you want to invest in it.
