Best Airsoft Shotguns Compared
Airsoft shotguns are not as flashy as say a M4 rifle or L96 sniper, but they can be just as deadly in the field. Airsoft shotguns function much like their real life counterparts. They fire a blast of pellets, a tri shot, or a single BB at anything that gets in their way, and trust us they are fun! They probable should not be your main battlefield weapon, but they are a great backup weapon to keep in your kit. We have put together our list of the top airsoft shotguns on the market today. Let us know what you think of our list!
What To know?
When choosing your next airsoft shotgun it is our opinion it should consider these items. Choose whether you want a tri shot, meaning three bb’s per shot, a single shot, or blast. Believe it or not airsoft shotguns do not fire a spray of bb’s like a real shotgun would shoot buckshot. Some can, but airsoft shotguns can also fire 3 or 1 bb’s per shot. Researching each gun is important to finding out how they shoot, and which type of shot they use. Most airsoft shotguns are spring loaded, meaning they will work well in any environment. This helps when playing in colder or drier terrain.
