APS Shotgun CAM870 has long been famous in its high degree of realism. Since 2014, APS has sold over 5000pcs of CAM870 shotgun to the market. The first generation of CAM870 (MKI) power coming from co2 stored in the shotshell. It has no limitation in firing, it depends on how many shells you bought to the field. The main firing mechanism is coming from the shells. Customer loves the design and idea very much.
However, CAM870 MKI was so real, some baddies interchange its parts with real steal Remington 870, which caused potential threat. That’s why we changed the design and made the CAM870 MKII system where gas is charged to the bolt.
After we launched the MKII system, there is still a high demand of old CAM MKI system, customer loves the old design because of its power, less mal-function, no limitation of firing rounds, which is excellent for competition, practical shooting and games.
Because of the high demand, APS is now re-launching the MKI system, we call it CAM MK3. MK3 is an improved version of CAM870 MKI, it is still using push pin system, but internal is modified to make sure no real gun parts or shotshells could be used. The body receiver and its cradle are re-designed, so that baddies can’t interchange them with real shotgun parts.
With the help of extended push pin, CAM MK3 could give you 360 ~ 380 FPS, it is more powerful than the old MKI system. CAM MK3 shotgun are 100% compatible with MKI shells and Smart Shot shells. Smart shot shells allow user to fill gas directly through the valve. With the use of either 88g cylinder adapter or paintball cylinder adapter, the filling is 3 times faster than the old MKI system.
CAM MK3 is coming in October 2018 covering all APS existing CAM870 variants.
