Double Eagle M56A Tri-Shot Shotgun
The Double Eagle M56A shotgun is based on the Benelli m1014.
The airsoft version pumps like any other airsoft shotgun you might find. Each pump loads all three of the internal barrels allowing you to get 3 shots per pump.
The shot comes out in a triangle pattern and spreads as the group flies. This means that when shooting something close the shot grouping will be quite close, but when shooting at range it spreads out to cover a larger area, much like a real shotgun. This makes the weapon perfect for use when defending or clearing an objective as it has the ability to spread fire over a small area relatively quickly.
If someone is entering a door for example, the user can react quickly and simply point the shotgun vaguely at the intruder and fire, due to the tri-shot they can guarantee a kill where a single shot weapon would not.
- 30 Round Shells (Shoots 3 per shot, so 10 shots Per Shell)
- Very realistic action due to the tri-shot
- Adjustable Hop-Up
- Metal Internal Construction with Polymer Outside
- Springer style pump - No gas needed.
To buy an airsoft weapon in the UK you must have a valid airsoft defence.
This is not a licence, it is basically just proof that you intend to buy an airsoft weapon for use in airsoft.
An airsoft defence could be a UKARA or membership with the British Airsoft Club, and various other forms of defence.
You can only obtain an airsoft defence once you are over the age of 18.
To get an airsoft defence the law is that you should play at least 3 games of airsoft, and that you must have been playing for at least two months.
You can still buy an airsoft gun without a defence, provided you are 18 or older. If you choose to do this we would, by law, two tone (paint in a bright colour) parts of your chosen weapon. This is because an airsoft gun is considered a RIF aka Realistic Imitation Firearm, because they are so close to the real steel, whereas when you paint parts of it in a bright colour it becomes an IF aka Imitation Firearm. The reason being that the bright colours make it look less realistic to the public, and therefor less likely to be mistaken as real, were it to be used for any other purpose than airsoft.
When you order a gun from us you will need to add your defence details in the comments section of the cart. If you do not have a defence you will need to write the colour that you wish to be used for two toning your airsoft weapon.
Here is what's stated in the VCRA (Violent Crime Reduction) Act:
For airsoft skirmishing, the Association of British Airsoft is putting in place arrangements to allow retailers to check that individual purchasers are members of a genuine skirmishing club or site. The key elements of these arrangements are:
1. new players must play at least 3 (three) times in a period of not less than two months before being offered membership
2. membership cards with a photograph and recognised format will be issued for production to retailers
3. A central database will be set up for retailers to cross-check a purchaser’s details
4. member’s entry on the database will be deleted if unused for 12 months.
The defence for airsoft skirmishing can apply to individual players because their purchase of realistic imitation firearms for this purpose is considered part of the “holding” of a skirmishing event.
