PostSubject: Spring Shotguns in Airsoft Wars?   Tue Aug 24, 2010 2:55 am

If you were to use any spring powered airsoft gun in a serious airsoft war, the two guns you should be using are either snipers or shotguns.
Of all airsoft shotguns made, spring shotguns are the most reliable in both FPS and accuracy. A good shotgun you can get is sold under a variety of models by different companies. UTG sells it as the M87. Double Eagle sells it as the M47. Crosman sells it as the Remington TAC 1. The important thing is that they are all the same gun inside. The best out of these many companies would be the Double Eagle M47 due to it shooting at a powerful 350 FPS and costing from only $20-$30 dollars. Unfortunately the magazine provided only holds around 20 bbs but this ammo capacity issue can be solved with the purchase a the UTG M87 High Capacity Magazine. The magazine is sold on pyramidair.com for around $8. This combination of firepower gives you a powerful yet inexpensive gun. I currently own a Double Eagle M47C with the high capacity magazine and it owns. Double Eagle makes three models; the M47A, the M47B, and the M47C. The M47A has a full butt stock and is very accurate and easy to aim with. The M47B has a pistol grip and makes for a compact gun but still maintains the accuracy. The M47C, as mentioned before, has a synthetic wood finish and sports a semi-pistol grip. Hopefully this information has given you an idea of what to look for in a spring shotgun.

On his opening comment about what you would take to an airsoft war: Snipers ate for noobs who don't want to be shot up, and you would never bring a spring powered shotgun to a large war game. 'shotguns are the most reliable in both fps and accuracy'?!? Shotguns are made to be inaccurate and have a spreading shot. Half of the shotguns you own don't even have sights, I don't know how you could be accurate at all with them. My view on any spring guns are they're for people just getting into airsoft, and noobs (snipers). Boren, you need to get rid of your spring powered guns and upgrade to a big boy's gun.

You don't need sights for your gun to be accurate. You just need to see wear the bbs are going and know how your gun shoots. If using any spring guns, you should use a shotgun because you can get off more well aimed shots that with any other type of spring gun since it is pump action. Plus you don't have to worry about gas or battery levels.
