PART 1 of my complete review of the new Classic Army M15A4 Sportline Carbine. In this part, I go over in detail the externals of the Sportline, and compare it to the externals of the ECHO1 M4. Please comment on my videos; I work hard on them and appreciate feedback. FAQ: Please DO NOT ask me the following questions: Q: Do I need to install metal bushings in this gun to run a 9.6v battery? A: You can run a 9.6v with stock bushings for a while, but the lifespan of the AEG will be shortened. It's better in the long run to install metal bushings and a good shim job up front. The sooner you use metal bushings with a 9.6 the better. Remember the metal bushings along with the shimjob will help hold the gears and other mechbox components in place as they spin, so they won't wear weirdly. It really is better to get metal bushings ASAP if you're using a 9.6v battery. The blue nylon bushings that come stock with the Sportline are tougher than your average nonmetal bushings, but still not as strong as metal. Q: Should I get this gun or [insert some other clone AEG]? A: I've given you a lot of information about the CA M15A4 Carbine Sportline in this video review. I don't know much about other clone manufacturers such as JG. I don't know how the newer clone guns compare to this gun. Q: How do I remove/change the flash hider? A: To remove the flash hider, there is a small allen screw on the underside of the barrel right behind the flash hider. Remove that screw and the flash hider ...

Airsoft Shotguns – the Tough Guys Airsoft Gun

Every airsoft fan has a favourite type of gun. Regardless of your preferences there's a certain attraction to shotguns that appeals to us all - to that dark place inside us. Maybe it's the way they're portrayed in the movies. The shotgun was always shown as being a real tough guys weapon - you needed to get up close and personal to use it. Shotguns were always shown to be cool and airsoft shotguns are no different in that regard.

There's a wide variety of shotguns available to the airsoft fan. Everything from the old reliable double barrelled shotguns to far more current styles. The double barrelled model is often sold in a gas variant model and is one of the very few gas powered airsoft shotguns available on the market today.

Some of the most popular airsoft shotguns are the old pump action style (which are spring powered) and these have the advantage of allowing you to fire bbs in rapid succession. The vast majority of airsoft shotguns are spring powered and tend to be the tactical style - used by the police and military although you can get many other styles and models.

There is also the option of choosing from the full stock or cutaway model of airsoft shotgun. The cutaway models have a pistol type grip and no stock to put against your shoulder. There's an even share of this type of gun available to airsoft fans. What suits you most will depend on the style of shotgun you like and your own personal shooting preferences when it comes to buying your airsoft shotgun.

Despite the fact that many of these guns are spring-powered pump action models they can hold 40 or more rounds. This allows for rapid reloading and for you to get back in the fight quickly. This offers a distinct advantage over an airsoft rifle where you need to cock it from a non-firing position. The shotgun allows you to fire from the hip in a rapid firing pump action style. Airsoft shotguns are probably more suited to close quarters airsoft games - maybe a type of urban combat simulation although they would still be useful in most types of airsoft combat.

So why not try on an airsoft shotgun for size today? You just might like it!
