UTG M4 90 Airsoft Shotgun Review | Multi Shot Triple Burst Fun

This is the golden standard for pump action spring tri-burst shotguns.

The market is flooded with countless airsoft guns but only a few are worth buying. There are even fewer which are not only affordable but will meet your expectations too. One of them is the UTG M4/90 Airsoft Shotgun, which is a solid base for anyone interested in using a multi shot tri burst shotgun.

This is a popular choice, for the most part, because of the low cost and tri-burst function. This spring pump action shotgun will sling 3 bbs in a single trigger pull.

UTG M4/90’s Features and Design

Velocity and Accuracy

We at Airsoft Core think the UTG M4/90 is the absolute baseline a tri burst shotgun needs to be for your airsoft needs. The gun has great accuracy, even at distance, with the non-adjustable hop up triple barrel system.


This pump action shotgun is part metal and part ABS plastic, making it durable and lightweight. The fixed stock, of all the shotgun offerings, is the most sturdy available seeing as how it is a no nonsense single piece.

Magazine Capacity

Here the UTG M4/90 Airsoft Shotgun utilizes a fun mock shell magazine system. 30 rounds are carried in each fake shot shell and inserted underneath like a magazine. Once you go empty you can remove the shell to insert another. The nice thing here is that extra shells are easy to find on the market and there are even specific loadouts you can consider if you’re thinking of running only the shotgun (do it – it’s a lot of fun!)

The fixed stock is why this is the top choice

We’ve fired all sorts of spring shotguns. What we’ve discovered that is that we had the most fun with the fixed stock variants, and the reason for that is simple. It is way easier on our upper body to pump the action.

This is because, as opposed to the real steel, there is a lot of resistance when attempting to rack the action. Having that fixed stock to brace onto your shoulder makes for a WORLD of difference after the 50th time you’ve needed to rack the gun.

We’ve found ourselves being able to use this shotgun all day nonstop because of the fixed stock – whereas with the other models we’ve needed to take a break between some rounds to rest our arms.

Now, we’re certainly no bodybuilders, but we do hit the gym rather regularly and one of us does wrestling and brazilian jiujitsu eveyr week, so we know what it means to be tired.

Almost all of the spring action pump shotguns in our best airsoft shotgun list feature some sort of stock. So, save yourself the arm ache and go with the fixed stock variants for these shotguns. Your arms (and wallet) will thank us.

Sturdy design and feel

Though most of the gun is made of plastic there is no compromise with the quality. The design is great and the metal barrel makes it sturdy and worth choosing. With a pistol style grip and 1:1 authentic design, the shotgun looks very similar to M4 tactical shot gun.
