    I'm just....bored with AEGs, tbh. The people I play with kinda suck, and I've gotten to the point where I just play with my pistol in order to give them a chance....they're getting better, but still.

    So...I started thinking about running a shotgun as a primary; I've heard some people talking about shotguns being viable options as primaries, but not recently.

    Is there anything out there other than the standard UTG tri shots? Am I just looking in the wrong places?

    So...yeah. Under $250-ish would be nice, since I don't really NEED this, I'd just like to try it out. I would also prefer spring over gas, but I'll get whatever I need to.

    Thanks folks.

    I see there's at least options for me to go this route. Anything with a stock?

    really? you can't find a website that sells airsoft guns and look you need other people to come out and tell you?

    here it is, most tri-shots can be bought for under $100. many have stocks. some fixed some retractable. some have rails for optics and flashlights. you can get shell holders for a sling or for the stock. you can get a mad max double barrel 6-8 bbs per shot for around $200.

    did i cover it all for you?

    Thanks. I'm an idiot and knew none of this.

    Hm. Cool.

    Just to clarify, I'm not against multi shots, I'm just looking for something of higher quality than a UTG/DE.

    never heard of that shottie before, but since the M500 is what i'll be breaching with when i finally go to SRF-A i might look into it.

    That shotgun is a work of art. I approve.

    EDIT: Directed at the MagPul one. Anyone want to build me one? I have money:).

    Check out that link. The OP hasn't gotten far but it is doable.

    @Archer. I dare you.

    Is there any advantage to a single shot, say an Echo 1 ATS?

    It's essentially a pump action sniper rifle/DMR.

    I had one a couple years ago. Stock effective range with 0.25g was easily 200'

    That'd be cool. >_> are they discontinued, or just not imported?

    I second that. I've heard its fantastic at >100ft, but don't count on anything over that because it has no hopup. It has a nice spread at 100ft though.

    The clone also sounds MEAN when you fire it. It's easily the loudest gun on the field. My MP7 is close, but there's nothing that sounds quite like that M500. So you also have the intimidation factor there.
