What is an Airsoft Shotgun Magazine?

Most shotguns do not use magazines but instead use shells which act as a magazine to carry BBs. There are two different types of shotgun shells for airsoft shotgun, gas, and magazine-style shells. Gas shells hold some gas and expel all the BB every shot. Whereas the magazine-style ones expel several BB at a time instead of the entire contents of the shell.

How many magazines should you carry in airsoft?

There is no right or wrong for how many shells one should carry. If your games are quick then eight or so shells could be better. Whereas in mil sim games you may need more than 12 shells! 

Types of Airsoft Shotgun Magazines?

There are two types of shotgun magazines. The first type is filled with co2 or green gas, with BB’s held in place by a soft cap. During a trigger pull all the gas escapes and push all the BB out at once! The other type is similar to a magazine but in the shape of a shell. These types release a few BB at a time every time the shotgun is fired.

There are only a handful of shotguns that use an actual magazine which is by Tokyo Marui. The AA12, Thor’s Hammer, and SGR12 all use a magazine similar to an M4.
