New To Airsoft. Looking For Decent Sniper Rifle

Hey guys, i've never played airsoft but think it would be a great game. and quite a bit cheaper then paintball. my friends play quite a bit but i never got into it. i used to have a crossman m4 from walmart and didnt have it for long. im looking for a good sniper rifle. im just wondering if you guys could send me some links of some decent sniper rifles. i would like somthing that shoots hard. and a good distance. i dont really know how much i wanna spend, probably somewhere between like $100 and $200 but would like to find something closer to $100 if its possible. it would be greatly apreciated if you guys could help me out!

Look for an Echo1, G&G Combat Machine, CA Sportline or even JG gun. I'd advise staying away from 'sniper rifles' unless it's an M14 or something of the sort. For about $150 you can get the gun, battery, charger, and one (sometimes two) mags. What gun were you looking for? M4/M16, M14, G3 style?

If you're going to go for a single shot bolt action, prepare to lose a lot. Your range will be the same as their AEG's for the most part, except you only have one shot at a time.

Get an AEG sniper setup, something like an M14 or even the M14 EBR is badass. You'll have semi and an easily upgradeable gun plus full auto if you ever need it. Also mag capacity is completely different. Most bolt actions have a mag capacity of about 20-30, meanwhile most hicap AEG mags hold around 300.

The Echo1 Bar 10 is a good, cheap sniper rifle for the money with the potential to be upgraded to a beast of a gun.

However I echo Mango's thoughts and would say that a tuned DMR airsoft gun will preform better. Most snipers in airsoft get less then 10 kills a game and that would be having a good game. This is due to the fact that most automatic guns have the same range as the majority of snipers and they have a faster rate of fire.

Just my .02.

if you get one, get the ECHO1 M28....

but i would reccomend an m14 AEG. They accept scopes, and are just as acurate as a sniper rifle, but are semi/full auto, so you can use it for any situation

Try what i have.

TSD Type 96 bolt action

it's spring powered, very accurate, and very reliable. I got mine for 80 from a friend, but you can easily find them around for 100 - 150 bucks.

I also had an EBR which is sold as of this morning, but i can tell you a bolt action sniper rifle is much better for sniping.

100-200$ Get's you garbage tbh You can spend upwards of 1000$ making the sniper, Perfect through upgrades, if your in the states it's cheaper to start go with an Aeg, or a JG bar-10

I personally own a UTG L96 and it is awesome. Plus there are sooo many upgrades you can do whatever you need after you figure out what needs a boost in performance.

I also have an A&K SVD Dragunov, which is nice and shoots almost 500 out of the box for only 150. Its just not as user friendly for newer players and not as upgradeable. and personally i like the L96 more since it has a pull back lever bolt, and the SVD only has the charging handle.

Its not that hard to cock. If you are a little kid or small then yeah i could see you having trouble but with it against your shoulder it isnt bad. The only bad part is the handle is a little small. I wear light gloves and i havent had a problem, although if you go through about 2 mags in a game, which shouldnt happen seeing as its about a 65 round or more mag, then your hand might be a little uncomfortable

I would personally choose the L96 since it has so many upgrades available and its awesome. Only thing a LOT of people own it. The most common sniper in my area at least. But great gun and only about 125 on amazon with a bipod, black or OD green. Just search UTG L96 shadow ops on amazon

The UTG L96, and A&K SVD are both nice and in the ~150 range.

If you decide to go aeg, the G&G Combat Machine series is great for the price. ~140 for the m4 aeg, and ~180 for the blowback version..

Personally I would look at a dmr aeg. Since you can shoot semi for sniping, but still have full auto capability.

Check out airsoft gi's g4-a3 dmr. It's base gun is the combat machine blowback m4. http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_inf...oducts_id=6097

Free shipping, and use the promo code "tim" at checkout for 15% off if you decide to buy from there.
