With a few exceptions, this is the business plan of almost all the entire airsoft industry.

Awww yeah.  Super Shorty version incoming  

FPR steel bolt, looks much more realistic than the original, cycles the same as before.

Judging by another video they posted it looks like a standard shell externally, I think they named it small cartridge due to the smaller BB compartment to allow for more normal fill valve type shell.

I don't get it. Are these the new, revised APS CAM870 shells that will prevent putting real gun powder in them?

 

The video is not very clear as to what is new?

 

I like the idea of a faster fill method but if it messes with the load capacity and load realism I am not pleased...

It's not shown in this video, though there were pictures floating around with redesigned bolts and shells.

 

The bolts have a larger "firing pin" than the old bolts, and the shells have a larger release valve. Old shells are compatible with the old bolts, though not vice versa. These just seem easier to fill than the older models.

The problem with those pics/posts (I saw them myself in my FB feed, pretty sure you are referencing the same one) of the bolt and shells are that it was exactly the same as the new Dominator shotgun shows so I think someone might have gotten things mixed up. Mistaking the Dominator design for the new APS design.

In the video posted above when I freeze framed the primer/back of the shell in the video certainly didn't look like what you describe.

Google Translate renders the following worrying transcript: "[Power] air shotgun test fire through the aluminum plate is sufficient to burst pig [...] This is what the brain can not say that idiot idiot knowledge? [...] The police fight the prostitutes."

 

I think we need expert assistance.

compatible with hpa tanks for easier filling? or would i need to look for some other kind of adapter?

 

cheers

I got 25 of the new shells and sold the old ones for cheap, it's significantly more convenient than the old shells, the push valve is also much larger and closer to the surface, all welcomed features for people that want to do weird projects with these shells.

yeah i picked up the sai 870 and about 24 of the new shells, been looking to pick up the sai variant for a while now and this 30% off was too good to pass up. Even if i get hit by UK customs it'll still only be around 2 thirds the price of buying it in the UK

 

now i just need to find out what adapter is needed to fill these newer shells with hpa

Chiinnature (I always Google it as chi nature, gets you there as well :P ) ^^ has a load of interesting CAM870  videos.

 

Or the awesome guy on Airsoft Canada forums (N-Force)?

(awesome thread: http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=162618 )

Don't you dare warn me for cross-linking to a Canadian forum, aye? :D

Yeah my tanks are regulated to 800psi so judging by the vids of that fella using 1200psi i should be fine.

 

although from what I've read on here 800psi of hpa is not really equivalent to 800psi of liquid co2 so i may or may not run it off co2 depending on the performance i guess

 

on a sidenote customs has released the sai 870 i ordered from ehobby so i guess in a day or 2 I get to find out what the glorious HMRC are going to charge me
