    Alright, here is my made up situation that explains why its a shotgun. There is a real steel weapon, the AK-10, a semi-automatic 10 gauge shotgun. It was designed by me. The prototype was made, but the weapon was never fully produced. I made and airsoft replica of the prototype. Therefore, its a replica of a shotgun, and is an airsoft shotgun. long story short, I made it. I get to call it a shotgun. haha

    Technically it is....the determining difference between a shotgun and a rifle is that a shotgun has a smooth bore barrel. So Technically, all airsoft guns are shotguns lol As for having to be 400-500 FPS...not really. It wouldnt be different than use any other AEG on semi auto. The AA-12 will simply be a slow ROF AEG in an AA-12 body. The Benelli/AK still needs a name btw, if anyone has any ideas. The point of my burst fire is to simulate a simultaneous tri-shot in the most skirmish effective way possible. At 45 FPS, it will sound close to enough to a single shot firing a small burst of BBs. I want to skirmish a shotgun as effectively as an AEG, and my creation fits the role. Its a shotgun, end of story! haha

    It is a shotgun. Changing the mag of the gun and changing the function of the gun are two totally different things. AEG shotguns do exist now, and it has range. I made it happen the way I wanted it too. Thats like saying a semi-auto shotgun that fires slugs isnt a shotgun. If I took a Maruzen M1100 and loaded one BB into each shell, would it not still be a shotgun? Your entitled to your opinion, but it will still be the best performing and most unique airsoft shotgun that I have personally used or seen. And thanks! My next shotgun project is the AA-12. The gun will be a full-auto single shot like any other AEG, but will have a restricted ROF to make it a bit more realistic. Basically, an AA-12 firing slugs. I might consider the hopup mod, but not on my current AEG shotgun. I want range. The point was to make an effective shotgun, which I think I did.

    Because then the range would suck horribly...with a simple burst, the hopup can still work properly I thought about using an M14 as the base, and most likely will if I do another one of these. It'd be easier to mod an AK mag to look like a shotgun mag than it would be to mod the gun to use M14 mags. SAW grip is planned Picked it out yesterday I wanted to get a folding stock to help take away from the AK look, but then I'd have no place to buy my battery. I thought about a stick in the magazine tube, but it would be more complicated than its worth. The wiring would ahve to pass through where the barrel support is....and I am already worried about that area. Need to get metal on there ASAP EDIT: So for mags, I think I may do AK74 plum mags. I'd really prefer midcaps. If not, this huge ugly AK mag would make a nice shotgun mag http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_56_432&products_id=27988 Also, for the stock, I think I am going to get a shell holder to put on. It will cover the features of the stock that make it look like an AK, and give it a very shotgun like appearance.

    Yes. I fitted an M1014 around a V3 gearbox, with the bottom piece of an AK-47 body to have a place for a grip, stock, and hopup, and the whole front end is custom. This is my first custom build, I am very happy with it.

    I got the day off and finished the externals, except its getting a heat shield. Anyways. Well...nearing completion of the worlds very first AEG shotgun-- to my knowledge anyways. We talked about it alot in the shotgun forum, and I am pretty sure Im the first to do it. The gun uses a V3 gearbox. It uses a Kalashnikov stock and grip, just because I happened to have a junk AK here. The mag will be an AK drum mag, which of course is large enough to hold shotgun shells, so it can retain the shotgun look. I built the whole thing from airsoft parts and stuff from the hardware store, with nothing but a dremmel. I think it turned out great. Now the internals are on the list-- planned 45 RPS with a 3 rnd burst MOSFET to simulate a tri-shot shotgun blast. The high ROF will make it sound more like a single shot than a burst. On to the pictures

    I modded an 870 pistol grip to fit today my DE today. It was extremely easy with a dremmel. The only problem I would see is that wood would be harder to shape...but definitely doable. Definitely. As for that Star CQB stock...modding it to fit that trishot wouldnt be too difficult. The CA870 grip I modded today required removing more material than the Star would, based on the picture. On a side note...Im building a shotgun right now. I dont want to give it away completely, but lets just say it will be one of a kind, and the very first of its kind. I should have the externals done (save the drum mag) in the next week or so, and will post some pictures.

    Im confused...in that bottom picture is the thing to the left of the pistol grip the screw that holds it on? If it is, its not compatible with airsoft grips. No clue when it comes to real ARs

    That M3 is ridiculous. RIDICULOUS. In a good way. A DAMN good way.

    Its a pistol grip, which should answer your first question lol I figured out that the hose somehow got worked loose, I took it apart and pushed it back on all the way. It worked itself looks in less than 15 shots, but now only leaks a little. Teflon tape will be on it soon enough. Who has used an external air rig on this gun? I want decent range with ~8 BBs. Decent as in 70-80 feet. I dont play CQB, but I want to skirmish this. I may pick up a Tanaka M500 for longer range....not sure yet. Plans so far are EdGI barrel, folding stock, and a metal body. Then Ill post pics. The folding stock is going to be a PITA, I already know....but worth it.
  11. Who has a pistol grip M870? PM me, I need some help!

    Maybe you guys can help me with my new M870...(Maruzen) The gas tank holds gas fine, but whenever I put it in the grip, is expels gas freely until its either empty or I take it out. I tried putting it in and all kinds of angles, nothing is working. The gas is shooting out of the top/bottom/sides of the grip. Any ideas?? I got it to go in properly one time out of at least 25 tries. When I did, I took it out and put it back in the exact same way, and it didnt work.
