Ok this might be a shot in the dark because apparently this gun is new, but does anyone have any knowledge about the DE M85A ??? 9http://www.shortyusa.com/airsoft.html? http://www.shortyusa.com/cart/viewitem.html?II=1428&UID=1197419121-69.182.79.182&CA=&RID=0

I haven't found a single shred of other info on it on the net. I actually liked my UTG M87 because I was in the 1% that didnt get a lemon and it served me well before selling it. I missed having a shotty to beat up and this one looked liked a good deal. The mag cap is absolute garbage, but the mags are only 5 a piece so I bought it with a couple extra. 300 fps for 30 bucks is decent, and I wanted something to tide me over until the UTG M3L came out. I will have it on Thursday, but in the meantime does anyone know ANYTHING about this gun?

Ok so update. I like this gun. It's worth the money by far. It shoots hard at ~300 (w.2) and its actually pretty accurate at ranges of about 80-100 feet. The body of the gun is ABS but it does have a metal heat shield over the top of it which adds to the guns look, but not to the weight. Anyone who plays COD4 will recognize this as the W12 pump action without the FO sights. I've actually tried to break this gun and its pretty hard to do as almost everything is put together well and its all around pretty sturdy. The rubber end of the stock is actually pretty comfortable to shoulder and seems pretty durable. The safety and hop-up are located in easy to reach places on the gun (just to the left of the trigger and where the ejection port is supposed to be, respectively) making using them in the field very easy. The gun definately has its cons though. There is no way I can see to attach a rail or easily rig some way to put on a red dot or other optic/light/laser. This is a drawback because I wanted to take advantage of the guns accuracy and range. The clips, they just suck. They only hold 14 rounds and they do not go into the mag well easily. They eject ok but you still have to yank them out. Another huge minus for me is the action grip. It wobbles. A LOT. You cannot move this gun without it making noise due to it being so loose on the bar. I'll see if I can find some way to make it snug but I've not tried yet. In lieu of its drawbacks, the 30 bucks I paid for this gun is worth it if you want a cheap shotgun. All those people who like the UTG M87 but had it break or want to avoid having it happen by getting one should look at this model instead as its way better performance-wise. Any ?'s feel free to ask.

Is the trigger metal? Because most shotguns i've seen (except high-end ones) have plastic triggers that feel like the gun's gonna break if you shoot it.

The gun's trigger is plastic, but its not flimsy or cheap feeling. Remember how I said I tried to break it? Thats one of the things I looked at and I even put the gun on safe and put some hefty force on it (idk, maybe 15-20 pounds of trigger pull) to see if it would break and it barely flexed.

ok... well, want the oint of a single shot shotgun if you get a shotgun make sure it shoots at least 2 bbs, because a single shot shotgun, you should just get an AEG, anyways, i never used that gun before, but it looks pretty SWEET!

shottys are fun to play with though

One major point of a single-shot shotgun (at least I think thats what you meant) is that it is a spring gun that is capable of slam firing. This is the firing tech. where you hold down the trigger and charge the grip to fire the gun as fast as you can do it, making it a "semi-auto" in the process. This is a risk to the guns durability and I'm sure many of old M87's died this way but I can vouch that this is built better than those cheap UTG's but still manages to be cheaper in price. Ergo, this gun is incredibly economical when you factor in its performance and quality of build.

you mean every time you pump only one bullet enters the barrel so why this over an AEg, the only difference is that it is not full auto

No one ever said anything about this being better than an AEG and in fact there are tons of differences. Its just a spring shotgun so I dont even know why you are bringing up AEG's in this section.

sorry, well, I just kind of disagree, srry for not thinking, but, maybe you already had a lot of AEGs, the advantage for a pump shotgun over other springs, is that it pumps easily and you dont have to keep moving your hands (for pistols move it to the upper cocking rail) basicly the top of the pistol

I dont even know what you are implying. The point of the post is to give people a look at the M85, not to compare it to other gun types or list its advantages in doing so. Please stop cluttering my post.
