It’s been said more than once about this gun, but I’ll say it again. It’s crap out of the box. It’s very frustrating because of the jamming and misfiring problem, but with a little bit of work you can get it firing really well, and if you check out the gun on youtube (try searching for “Ertl Shotgun”), you’ll see some pretty extreme modifications. it’s really amazing how much power you can get out of this gun.
there’s quite a bit of info already online concerning modifications for this gun, and to be honest, most of the fun lies in figuring it out on your own and trying not to break anything in the process. So with a bit of research and some tinkering, this gun is well worth the time and money.

Ok. So out of the box it performs poor. But then again most all nerf guns do so that is really irrelevant. By standards of a professional nerf modder (my modded blasters sell for over $200) this blaster is amazing. It can be transformed from a weak child’s toy that ranges 10-15′ to a dominating weapon that will hurl foam darts over 100′. This and the pump action shotgun are the two best currently produced nerf type blasters. Like most nerf type blasters you will need to modify the barrels to shoot the optimal “stefan” style foam darts. The darts that are included are similar to the older style nerf darts called MEGAS. They can still be ordered from Hasbro directly. however the company that produces this blaster also sells refills of the same type darts it comes with. Amazon does not however sell them. If you do want to use standard common nerf type ammo you can do that also.
Here is an example of my own skills put into this blaster.
This is an insane gun. Fires nerf type ammo, and feels just great. Very realistic shotgun action. I’ve been searching a rifle for my arsenal, this is the one. This is my rifle, This is my gun. This is for war, and this is fun. Don’t buy the Rapid Fire Rifle, Double Barrel Shotgun, or the Tommy 20 by Buzzbee. Quality is bad. If you’re looking for a great primary, with awesome range, with a realistic look, this is for you. Also, education wise, this teaches you hand eye coordination, as well as exercise. So buy it, and go out and shoot something! Also makes an insanely loud, ear shattering sound. Just kidding. But it is pretty loud when fired.
