The APS CAM870 airsoft shotgun is the most realistic shotgun on the market. Not only does it operate like a real shotgun, it also fires like a real shotgun. That is because it can fire up to 12 airsoft BB's in one shot, unlike other "realistic" airsoft shotguns that fires only 1, 3, or 5 BB's at once.
The way APS CAM870 shotgun achieves this realistic firing capability is in its shotgun shells. It uses the Hakkotsu 12 Gauge airsoft shotgun shells (see photo below), which store CO2 within itself. When you trigger the shotgun shell, it fires up to 12 airsoft BB's stored in the hull.
In this article, we are going to review the APS CAM870 shotgun shell. That's right, we are not going to review the APS CAM870 airsoft shotgun, even though we will mention it throughout this article. Why? Because 1) the APS CAM870 airsoft shotgun costs over $500 and we don't have one; 2) the APS CAM870 shotgun shell can fire on its own without the APS CAM870 airsoft shotgun; 3) we want to use these shotgun shells in an underbarrel shotgun. We'll talk about these points in this article.
The APS CAM870 airsoft shotgun comes with two of these shotgun shells. However, you can purchase more. That's a good thing, because there is no way you can last through an airsoft game on two shells. You'll probably need quite a few. A little less if it is just your breaching weapon. Additional shotgun shells comes four to a pack (see photo below).
When purchased in this manner, the APS CAM870 shotgun shells comes with red hulls. Transparent and other color hulls are also available.
