Basically i'm new to Airsoft and I apologize to Mod's if this is in the wrong catergory,

For a long time i've loved guns and actually used to be very good at air rifling to the point that i was coming first in city competitions, sorry about the back story, i just want people to know i'm serious about buying and not just for back garden plinking. (Saves confusion.)

Basically i found lots of sites that sell airsoft snipers (what i'm interested in) for about $100 but as soon as i find the on UK sites their about 150, anyone know a place where i can get one with scope, bipod is prefered but not nesercery, hopefully under 150. i would like a spring, :0 gas seems like to much of an effort. :P I kinda had my eyes set on this

if you order from china it will be cheaper they havent included postage until you actually get to the checkout working a tad cheaper then if you ordered from the UK however if you weigh up tax from customs and delivery time its far easier ordering from the uk anyway!

besides they are not allowed to 2 tone it for you im afraid so the UK you have to order it from.

if your a keen sniper then i would do some research, there are plenty of articling explaining how to get the perfect shot / zeroing in and modding your rifle so you get perfect accuracy!

good luck.

Sorry, should've read up first,
Okay well i'm guessing a good place to start is by getting a license. Thanks for the help everyone.

Snipers are NOT good starter guns for airsoft

Go for a good AEG :)

or (had you read and understood teh VCRA) go to 3 games and get a lincense. you will probably be renting AEG's and will reaslise they are LOADS better for a beginner.
