Hey gang, looking for gear suggestions for doing a shotgun primary at larger milsim/field games. The primary will be a Cyma 870 trishot.

My current ideas are to utilize the plastic molle shell caddies used in 3 gun competitions for quick mag changes and to carry an Odin loader with the Bingo shotshell adapter for field reloads. Since my kit weight will be reduced and I'll be more up close and personal, I'm also thinking if carrying a few more grenades.

How many shotshells would best? Have any specific pieces of gear that you'd recommend?

Magazine adapter maybe? Either way, those shells are easy to reload.

There's a new Matrix shell carrier on Evike that would probably work well if it holds the shells tight.

Stock pouches are alright, but they add bulk. If you are afraid of losing a shell, go with a closed top one.

Scabbards are an option.

 

 

It's easier to main a gas shotgun or AEG shotty since if you modify a Cyma (They are modifiable, you can even swap barrels and buckings if you feel like buying that many barrels) you are getting into pioneer territory. I haven't had time to disassembly mine yet. Keep in mind, don't cock the spring too hard and don't return to lock super quick or you risk breaking a tiny plastic loader - I had to get my first one RMA'd because of that. Just cycle it smoothly and you'll be fine.

 

If mine ever breaks or I get a donor I'll take my caliper to it and make a cnc'd version. I really like the platform though!

Do you plan on adding anything to the 870? side saddle, weapon light etc?

I'll be doing some external mods, but I'd rather not have any rounds on the gun itself, unless I can find or make a nice leather cheek pad for the butt stock.
