"This was my first airsoft sniper rifle, and this review is based on my first day assembling and testing the gun.

Using .30g BBs this thing shoots great right out of the box. Surprisingly powerful and consistent, with the hop up adjusted (done easily simply by turning a screw located in the mag-well) I was hitting out to 150+ feet with satisfactory accuracy. This surely won't impress any hardcore airsoft snipers, but for a gun at this price right out of the box as a casual player I am pleased. The bolt action functions very well and definitely adds some fun compared to a typical AEG rifle. Assembly and accessing the internals is quick and relatively painless. The only issue I could see someone having is removing the piston head if a suitable tool is not on hand, a pair of O-ring pliers does the trick nicely.

The piston and spring guide are both plastic, and they will not fit a larger upgrade spring. I purchased this as a package with a scope and bipod, both of which perform as expected with no issues. The cheek riser, rear mono-pod, and folding stock features all work as expected. The one feature I was disappointed with was the 'adjustable' stock. Essentially you are able to unscrew the pad at the back of the stock, and remove one of the plastic spacers (effectively this stock has 2 settings). The issue I ran into was that there is also a weight glued into these pieces, which was a hassle to remove in order to adjust the stock to a smaller length. Removing the weight also reduced the balanced feel of the gun somewhat, so I would not consider this stock truly adjustable. A second minor con would be the prominent "made in china" etched into the left side of the stock.

For a casual first-time airsoft sniper this rifle met and exceeded my expectations, especially at the $170 price-point. I would recommend it to anyone looking to try out sniping.

"this gun came in about a week and a half ago and all i can say is WOW! this gun is so accurate and powerful. its heavy (good kind of heavy) for that realistic feel to it. the bolt release to the spring is fairly easy, but ajusting the hop up is another matter. it's so complex and hard. you have to take the barrel and unscrew it. the cylinder is easy though and you'll see your hop up. bolt is full metal and durable. full metal trigger. this gun is built to last! only thing you should do about this gun is change the spring to a higher quality spring. it loses fps fast. overall 9/10


accessing internals is a pain.

"This was probably the best gun I've ever had.
Great beginners sniper rifle since this gun was made by WELL as a MB08 anybody wanting to buy this gun should pay five dollars more and get the MB10 instead it shoots faster and harder and more accurate than this gun trust me The MB10 even comes with a scope and a bi pod.

Great FPS
shoots far
good rifle on the go
great with bi pod
great balanced gun

CONS: Only that
when I bought this gun the MB10 came out the next day so I was really pissed
mags in wrong spot
doesn't come with scope
and the spring really isn't upgraded only the piston is

By far this is the best rifle ive owned. Shoots about 420-430 fps with .20's, but thats easily upgradeable. I have a 3-9-40mm scope on mine and its dead accurate at 150 feet. The folding stock is a great feature because this is a very long gun but after you fold it its easy to store. If your getting this gun you should definantly look into upgrading it for better FPS i am personally going to get it shooting around 600fps with .20's. But you should adjust it to your feilds FPS limit. Overall Great gun.

Great Internals
Comes with Bipod
easily upgradeable
smooth bolt

FPS is a bit lower than i would expect

Great for any sniper, even beginners! BUY THIS GUN!

"This gun is recommended for anyone trying out sniping. Shoots more accurate than the Well Type 96 and the UTGs. Although it doesnt come with a scope and the mounts are a little hard to find, I have had absolutely no problems from it that I couldn't fix with one of the included hex screwdrivers.
Easy bolt action
Realistic metal barrel and polymer body
More accurate than UTG and Well
Comes Pre-upgraded

Scope mounts are difficult to find but just check around your local gun stores for one that fits. I use 1 inch high quad locks made by Weaver. They work perfectly.

This gun gets a 10/10

"got this gun a few days ago, sighted it in and IT IS AWSOME!!!
at 50 yards(150 feet) my grouping was abot 6 in.
I had my friend go out 150 feet and tell me how bad it hurt at he said tha it was prety bad@$$.

-foldable stoct

-metal inturnals, and a dence plastic for the body

-bolt is a little hard to pull at first but aftur a while its easier to pull
-heavy(could be a con)
-mags in the wrong spot

cant thing of any thing else.
If you are looking for sniper rifle under 200$ and good fps, range, and durable get it it is awsome!

"I've owned this rifle for almost a year now, and it's held up nicely. Over the past few months, I really haven't done any airsofting, just backyard target practice.

This thing hasn't been taken to a field to play in a large-scale game by me, because I live nowhere near a field of any type. At least not an airsoft field. Plenty of corn and bean fields.

But anyways, in a year of use, it's starting to fall apart on me. The folding stock rattles, the internals are going bad (Mainly because the piston and spring guide are both plastic) and the inner barrel has started to rattle.

Decent internals
Amazing look

Internals go to trash after around a year
The rest of the gun kind of falls apart after a long time.

If you're looking for a solid sniper rifle, this will do the job. But if you're looking for something a little more realistic, buy a Matrix Marui clone instead.

In conclusion, this is a nice rifle. It will fall apart after a long time, but that's with any other airsoft gun kept in well maintenance.

Happy airsofting!
