Tokyo Marui M870 Tactical Gas Tri-shot Shotgun- picture, text and video review

Recommended Posts

How is the spread with those?

At 10m they don't diverge much, but it's got a nice spread from 20m and up. At about 40m they take the space of a football.

There has to be some inconsistencies in the hops on these as on my tactical, using abby ultra (340fps with Xcortech chrono on 3 shot mode) .2s are shooting out straight and far.

Would the ambient temperature not be quickly negated by having cold gas blown over the hop rubber contact point in quick succession? Or maybe I'm over thinking it now.

Me? If I did, I hope it stays there, it's perfect on .2s :)

Oh, sorry. Misread your previous comment. Thought you were experiencing inconsistent bb trajectories with every shot. Which is a symptoms I experienced in my aeg when I got silicon oil on my hop up.

 

But I'm surprised you are getting flat flight trajectories on 0.20g.

 

Everyone has experienced over-hop and I've only recently experienced it myself.

 

What type of gas are you running the breacher?

Haven't seen a solid answer on this until now, so in case anyone else is still uncertain, the stocks are 100% interchangeable between tactical and breacher versions of this. Makes sense that it's the case, but nice to have it confirmed.

 

Not my photo or guns but here we are:

Cheers

 

Edit: Should also mean that buffer tube stocks will fit on the breacher too.

So after 4-6 months of being charged with 134a gas, my tactical's&s tank expanded. Tank held gas just fine....just that it was tougher to take out. The room it was left with gets lit by the afternoon sun. Typical valley temp in California where temps reach in the 90-100 range over the past 3 months.

 

Emptied the gas out of the tank then proceeded to repair my puffy gas tank using the trusty rubber mallet. Hit it here and there and it's back to popping out of the stock after the release latch gets pressed even when not gassed up.

 

So I guess I'm not storing the tank with a lot of gas. Maybe a jab of two with 134a will suffice.

Won't lie. The tactical with the pistolgrip looks good, with the extended mag tube it'll be better.

 

But the full stock on the breacher?

 

That's just no. No no no no.

 

Rather put an m4 style buffer tube stock with pistol grip on that.

 

Also, I realised the slightly longer inner barrels of the tactical with the stock gas tank mod is giving it real potential as a outdoor primary if you're the type to assault fast and the map has a lot of cover.

Toy Soldier has some stickers so you can dress up Marui mags as hinge busters:

Sidesaddles don't make any sense on a breacher, though.

... And pump actions are poor substitute for a proper semi-auto shotgun breacher.

 

But it looks Tacticool and that's half the fun of airsoft.

this might go well on any shells, including my cheap UTG shells!

So, is this gun worth the Canadian mark up price? :)

 

About $450 - $500 * 1.13 tax = $508-565 CDN.'

There's still many armed forces that use the short mcs for breaching and it's a pump action. I think part of it is the fact it's simple and always works

 

You have a point, pump actions are more versatile, which is why the military still use them.

 

But law enforcement and other specialised unit are moving more into semi-auto short barrel shotguns for breaching duties. When they are only used for breaching, vital seconds between having to pump and rack to the semi-auto action makes all the difference as well as the larger capacity of shells .

 

Either way, if you have the real steel version of this shotgun, a side saddle would be perfect. Either for range shooting, hunting or self defence, usually what you have on the shotgun is all you got, it make sense.

 

It certainly helps in the airsoft game, then feeding it from a belt/vest mounted shot-caddie since you only have to load one shotshell magazine.

I found myself naturally falling into a very quick reloading pattern, only problem is trying to stop myself from using the over-top combat loading technique into the chamber, to get a 6+1 max capacity. it can really mess you up if you are well seasoned with the real steel version.

 

Which is why i've been eyeing the CAM 870....but it ain't exactly skirmishable and seems to be disallowed for CQB in Hong Kong in most airsoft groups. (too hot).

On the Tactical it came out for my friend(whom I sold it to) to the point it was inside the gun on one side but thankfully I could just push it back to its place. It doesn't move that easy, just keep an eye on it every so often. Or buy the First Factory locking pins(its out of stock unfortunatelly both on WGC and Ehobby) as Snoopy suggested.
