"i received this gun about four months ago ,first i just have to say that this gun is extremely accurate to begin with.the hop up is very strong and easily reachable with an allen wrench that is given with the sniper,the hop up can send .43 bb in the air and also because the high fps 420-450 fps.the bi-pod that is given with the gun is alright for being full metal,its really easy to take of and but it already comes with an full meta trigger box so getting the UTG upgrade kit would be perfect for the next step in upgrading.overall this gun is well worth the money and without any upgrades you can hit targets up to 250ft accurately which i did have done with my gun.

pro:high quiality body and internals
high fps
extremely accurate
heavy (not to heavy but good for realism)
easy to pull the bolt back
comes with full meta gear box

cons:havent found any yet

"This is a great gun, I would not change anything, it's great. A couple of days ago I was going to play airsoft, and I felt the barrel was loose, it was an easy fix, what happened there was a screw loose on the bottom of the gun. It's still a great gun

Medal mag
Medal barrel & bolt
Easy to pull the bolt back

Plastic outer (that doesn't effect anything)

"overall a very good sniper for someone who knows how to be paitent and take their time on a target.
-nice full metal mag

-hard to pull the bolt at first
-very difficult to zero in your scope unless you are experienced
-bbs that it comes with arent good
-bipod is not very good

"I bought this gun a few weeks ago, and I've put about 1,000 rounds through it. I really, really like it. It shoots hard, fast, and accurately. I made the mistake of not getting the bipod, and when I got it I quickly realized how useful it would've been. The plastic stock is very strong and sturdy, you won't have to worry about it breaking unless you're bashing it against something on purpose. The piece behind the bolt on mine got a small piece of metal stuck between it and the rest of the bolt, but that was easily fixed. My recommendation is that if you're going to buy this gun (Worth more than what you pay for it, trust me), Make sure to get the bipod and a good scope.

"I ordered this rifle a while ago off of evike, and i love it. Great fps and power, i'd recommend some serious bbs with it however as even with hop up all the way down the .25s still curve up. Easy to operate, but as others have said this is not a run-and-gun sniper, this is a sit-in-a-tower-and-pick-off-the-slow-ones sniper. The bolt mechanism is so smooth, even my 9 year old little sister can do it with ease. Overall a great weapon for the money.

My only caveat is this: this is not the same as an aps2, not all the aps2 parts will fit on it (like the sillencer adaptor)

"This gun is one of the best guns I have ever owned. I recomend getting the scope because it can be hard to aim without sometimes. The sling broke the week after i got it but that is a very minor setback for this gun. Overall this gun is beast!!!

"one of the best guns i own great range very high power if your looking for a great bolt action sniper this is the one for you 5 stars
by Murray W. on 02/15/2009

I ordered this gun because I have seen this Gun in action...
This gun, Is AMAZING.

Great Bolt Lock
Great FPS and Range
Great Bipod and Scope matchup
Can take a beating (but do not try to give it one)
The Spring is mostly amazing...

It weighs a bit (but it is very good)

Really the only way to break this gun is if you are not using it right or you
are trying to break it... This gun is very reliable... and it has great FPS.

*On this gun you have to switch the hop-up to low!*
*On high the bullets tend to go up,*
*on low the bullets go straight and go down at the last 4-8 FPS*

I highly recommend it

"This Sniper Is Amazing...
Nothing is Bad about it,
The only thing that I find a little Uncomplationet,
Is that The Hop-Up...
You have to change the Hop-Up to low to make it a
Straight Kill. If you do not have it on Low then the
bullets seem to go Up and when it is on low, the bullets go down. (after awhile)

Overal A great gun (5/5)..

"dude this gun is AMAZING!!!! if you are thinking about getting a cheap but affective sniper rifle than this is the one for you. its powerful and best of all very accurate at longer distances. this gun will definitely serve you well in the field! i am on a traveling team from VA and the only kind of weather that will affect it just as any gun...the wind. so if you need a great weapon to snipe with this is for you

"My friend got this gun a few months ago at an airsoft and paintball store. The pros would be: accurate to at least 100ft (not sure about 200ft, sry), really cheap, tough and reliable (never seen it jam or loose power like I've seen UTG M24s), a great base to put a scope, bipod, etc. on, cool mags that don't make you loose bbs when you pull them out, and, it's very powerful. It'll make you bleed from 30ft away if aimed at exposed skin. A few cons are: not a quick action (probably due to the powerful spring) so aim well, cause, at closer ranges you may get only one shot before return fire gets you before you can cock it, and it's not an 'on the move sniper rifle', the L96 design is good at steadying the rifle for carefully aimed accurate shots, not for running around and engaging targets willy nilly. Overall I'd give it a 5 out of 5; powerful and not easily broken make this accurate weapon a formidable advisary. Hope this helped.

"what is the best size bb for this gun?
i know above .20g, but what is the best.

Webmaster: For its high power, Matrix 0.25g, 0.28g or 0.30g works best. (Matrix because it is the highest quality bb in the market today and affordable price.)
by Andres I. on 12/23/2008
"yes this gun is great. its only jammed on me once but that was my mistake. very accurate up to at least about 150 feet and it hurts like a son-of-a.... anyway i would recomend this gun if you were to get a sniper. best on the market
