Hey guys,

Well ever since I was a wee lad I have loved snipers and sniper rifles. Now I'm playing alot of airsoft I want to try my hand at it ;)

So my question is this, What sniper rifle do I get? I've been looking at Marui VSR-10 G-Spec or Marui L96. Anyone recommend any other type of sniper, about the same price range, cheers ;)

First off all.... The easyiest way of tring sniping out is to load out one of your guns with low caps or real steel cap mags and a scope, keep it in semi and go and play a couple of games.... if you still find it easy to "rack up the kills" then snipeing would be alright for you

However if your finding it hard to then snipeing simply isnt for you.... Its a cheaper way then handing over 200 odd and finding out you dont liek it?

Well, I kinda cheated, I used one of my mates sniper rifles for a few games and loved it :) why I want to get one, I wouldn't just jump into the pool with out first testing the water :)

Finally, someone sensible who want to be a sniper!!! Not some noob who want to be one "cos theur like welll good a' it on COD", god ###### they annoy me! :angry:

Anyway, if you like it and youve tried it, go for it! :D My mate (dave the mod on here) bought a Drag, used it a few times but hasnt been used since, i used it once or twice but didnt like it either, would much rather keep my automaticness (yes that is a word) :lol:

not just It isnt for me, the hop up on it is completely buggered, so negating the usefulness of the dragunov somewhat.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

ok guys, i picked up my Well L96 today. So far the only thing wrong with it is the bullstop is loss but thats a two second fix! But looks like a very nice gun got a bit more weight behind it compaired to the VSR i was looking at.
