The Helio M727-A Underbarrel shotgun is a new version of the original Helio M726-A. It's primary purpose is to provide the same advantage to airsoft pistols and airsoft short barrel rifles where there are limited space for loading and ejecting airsoft shotshells.
The Airsoft3D Helio M727-A is an under-barrel shotgun attachment for airsoft firearm replicas to be used in a certified or regulated sporting event or competition. It attaches via Picatinny rail or Weaver rail and fires Goblin Solo/Deuce airsoft shotgun shells. The Goblin shotgun shell allows loading up to twelve 6mm BB's, making the Helio M727-A the most optimal airsoft underbarrel shotgun on the market. No other airsoft underbarrel shotgun can even come close to to the firepower of shooting multiple BBs at once. A latch release allows the operator to extract the spent shell and reload a new shell.
The Helio M727 Underbarrel Shotgun is marketed toward airsoft special operations forces and soldiers, who wanted to reduce the number of individual weapons they had to carry by using a shotgun as a rifle attachment instead of a discrete weapon. The idea of the Helio M727 is to provide future soldiers with lightweight accessory weapons which could be mounted under any rifle. The Helio M727 would provide soldiers with additional capabilities, such as: room breaching, hitting short-range targets, and attacking multiple charging targets (http://i.e. zombies).
Compared to the present day airsoft replicas of KAC MasterKey and the M26 Modular Accessory Shotgun System (MASS), the futuristic Helio M727 Underbarrel Shotgun is smaller, lighter, less moving parts, more flexible, and less expensive. It's smaller and lighter attachment allows the rifle to be more maneuverable in confined spaces. It's more reliable due to less moving parts. It's more flexible for you to mount it in any orientation on your airsoft gun. And it's less expensive than other underbarrel shotguns speaks for itself.
You will also need a #6-32x1-1/4" screw and a #6-32 nut to fasten this airsoft underbarrel shotgun to the Picatinny rail. The screw and nut are not include, but can be easily sourced from your local hardware store (e.g. Home Depot, Lowes, etc.). Instructions for this device is located here:
