"This is my favorite gun. When people say it is pinpoint accurate, they are not exaggerating. With .25g bbs and a decent scope, your shot goes where you aim it. Out of the box, this shoots 315 fps with .20g bbs, but the low fps doesn't reduce the accuracy. People have told me Tokyo Marui hop-ups are amazing, and I was not disappointed. Without modding the gun at all, you can tune the hop up to make .25g bbs fly with very little arcing. This means you can shoot long range without having to aim way above the target. This alone makes it incredibly satisfying to shoot. I have also tried shooting it with .20g bbs, but they have a noticeable arc to them that .25g bbs just don't have.
The gun feels great. I like how it sits on my shoulder, the grip is simple and feels great, and the front is just the right size for my hand. Everything just naturally wants to go where it is supposed to, making it easy to make snap shots. The bolt is pretty easy to pull, and the gun is VERY quiet. If someone is not listening for it, they will probably miss it. The mock suppressor it comes with is easy to put on and take off, and doesn't affect your accuracy at all. This is a good looking gun. The entire setup is very sleek. I have gotten a lot of compliments about it and lots of people want to try shooting it. The mounting points for slings on this are fine. A lot of people don't seem to like them, but they do the job and don't get in the way.
I thought that the 30 round mags that come with this wouldn't be enough, but I rarely go through 2 whole mags in a 30 minute game. I usually go through one, and get a few shots from the second. Everything about this gun encourages and enables you to make every shot count.
Since this is a sniper rifle, I would suggest a good scope. The 3-9x40 scope in the "You may also need" section is the one shown in the picture. It works well, even if it has a couple things that annoy me, and looks great.
I only have two complaints, and they are very minor. The first is that the gun is borderline too long with the suppressor on. When I am holding it one handed to use a sidearm, I tend to tap the suppressor on the ground if I am not careful. This is when I am holding it by the grip and it is hanging down. I only hold it like that when I need to quick draw my sidearm with my left hand. I am only 5' 10 1/2", so a taller person might not have this problem.
The second issue is this gun is definitively NOT for left handed people. The bolt is designed to be pulled by the right hand, and that is supposed to be your trigger hand. I have tried shooting this left handed because I try to be ambidextrous, but I had to reach way back to pull the bolt, and the back of the bolt kept hitting my thumb. I had to move my hand to pull it back all the way. Keep in mind, this is unmodified. I don't know if you could modify it to be left handed, but I don't intend to since I am right handed anyway.
Hop-up is simply amazing. The bbs fly super straight and level, and the hop-up is easy to adjust.
The gun looks and feels great. It naturally moves to a good firing position.
A bit long with the suppressor on.
Right handed ONLY.
If you plan on being a dedicated sniper, this gun is well worth the cost.
"This gun is simply amazing
It is upgradable but you might have some problems with the cylinder head if your trying to upgrade the spring
Very durable gun
Nice magazine for a sniper rifle
All an all I would recommend this gun to anybody that plays airsoft... Definitely worth the money
"This is by far hands down the best sniper rifle I have ever owned. I have had a TSD SD 96, a shadow ops but this rifle is just on a different level of quality. From the very first moment I opened the package to my very first bolt pull I have to say I was highly impressed. The bolt pull is the lightest and smoothest ever you can't get any better than this. The rifle is one of the most silent if not the most silent when it's fired, and if you attach the silencer tokyo marui includes it's good night.
Highly accurate 100 ft
Smooth bolt pull
It's a tokyo marui
Fps needs to be upgraded to be effective
Could not really find anything wrong with this rifle apart from it's fps being way to low because of the 1 joule law in japan, but if you buy this rifle this won't be a problem because your a serious sniper and your going to upgrade it anyways. Even if you left the rifle the way it is, it is still far superior to a lot of other clone rifles out there that have a higher fps. You pay for what you get and trust me tokyo marui won't disappoint you
