When you take off the barrel kit, the Sniper's MSRP effectively drops to about $300. Considering it's a midblock design (not something stock on any Sniper to date), dual pump armed, comes with the Hitman-style pump assist handle, autotrigger, and on/off ASA, honestly the Sniper is kind of a bargain. It's almost like buying a bunch of cool accessories and getting a gun thrown in with them.
But back to the Cocker. It really is great to see them come back out. They've been gone from the market for too long, and the playing community deserves good higher-end mechanical guns.
