Like the appearance of the sniper and was excited to use it. After a couple of times, I was frustrated because it's not up to where it should be or the price. Not smooth enough, handles are hard, pump handles are small and useless. Needs widen for more comfort.

THIS GUN IS JUNK. It looks good the second I can saw it I fell in love. I finally got my hands on one and took it to the field. First game I was chopping paint bad. I took it home and looked in to it. The hammer would lock in before the bolt was all the way back. The other thing I found when I was looking at is was the bolt didnít travel all the way forward to seat the ball in the barrel. I tried to wrench on it and still couldnít get it lined up. I like my cheep Kaos pump over the Empire. Itís kind of sad as Iím an Empire fan, I have an Axe, pants, jersey, mask, and tank but I wonít be shooting an Empire Sniper Pump.

Empire Sniper Decided to go with the sniper as my first pump. A great gun for its price range and I really enjoy playing woodsball with it

So far after 3 games with the sniper i'm loving it the first day i got it i was testing out the auto trigger with my prophecy on top and the last ball chopped in the barrel probably my fault but o well :p, the gun is light i ended up getting 4 other guys to play pump with me and they all went the cheaper rout of autocockers with pump kits ($100) after waiting for 2 months from ans to get my red sniper, let me tell you they are jelious they love the hitman and the autotrigger not to mention the lightness,

i've also noticed how consistent it is +/- 5 with crappy paint thanks mostly to the barrel kit probably which matches the gun awesomely great product it makes me want to try the ccm greats now as well as i'm very new to pump paintball

i sold my sniper after using it for a day. it is nice and light, very consistant over the chrono and comes with a great barrel kit.

but,

for the money all you get are extras. the marker itself needs a lot of tuning in my opinion. it has an extremely stiff pump which makes the autotrigger and hitman mod pretty much useless IMHO. maybe it's because i've already been blessed with having a ccm marker in the past and this thing doesn't come close to it as far as feel and smoothness are concerned.

I love this gun. I think it was a great buy for 330. I enjoy the fact that it comes with the 10 round feed, so I purchased a CO2 bucket and get to play stock class. If you are looking into pump play I would recommend this gun, its really cheap for what you get and its a really good gun.

I'm relatively new to pumps but owned a CCM S6 and an Empire Sniper back to back and absolutely loved both. The Sniper though for the price is an absolute steal. Barrel kit is by far my favorite barrel kit out due to longer insert type barrel backs and the hitman mod, 45 degree reg macro fitting, and stock class feed addon are all perks Empire didn't have to include. Highly recommend this marker!

There is lots of value in the box. Not only do you get the gun, but you get a nice barrel kit, a parts kit, a full allen key set, a spring tube feed, and a barrel cover. All of this comes in a nice box with foam for protection.
This gun shoots great and is all around an awesome gun.
Don't hesitate to buy one.

Great overall gun, especially for the price. Took about a case through it before I really loved it. Out of the box the velocity is all over the place, but after that case, it shot beautifully. I would recommend this gun to anyone who wants to get into pump, or as a tournament level pump gun.
