"Got this gun in March's "Box of Awesomeness" only not so awesome...
Hoping to have scored something other than a sniper rifle, I wanted to sell the KA Blaser R93 LRS1 so I brought it to our local indoor field where it was assembled by a tech and FPS tested in a controlled environment to maximize resale value. The Tech, potential buyers and myself were huddled around as we carefully bench tested accuracy and FPS.
PRO: Shot 450 fps w/.20 out of the box precisely 4 times.
CON: Spring guide broke on 5th attempt
The gun has weight, and build quality seemed high on the outside. However, after catastrophic failure, we disassembled the gun only to find the internals, were so cheaply made, there is no way the manufacturer could claim that the gun could endure anything like an airsoft event. That is precisely why a reinforced trigger assembly and valve body are offered for sale. Sadly, without them, the gun is at best "unreliable" at worst "a waste of any amount you pay for it."
As lemons go, there is no lemonade to be made from this gun unless you are willing to pay nearly $200 for what the manufacturer should have included in the original build. NOTE: We got a King Arms SEAL M-4 in a previous BOA, which is beast w/11.1v lipo, so we had high hopes for this King Arms product...It is in fact a relabeled product, so no ding on other King Arms products, but they need to re-evaluate their corporate merchandising strategy. "Has great range out of the box but the cheap plastic internals will break so expect to pay up to an extra 70$ on necessary upgrades. "I can only say a few negative things about the gun. I have had it for about 7 months now and it still works and looks great. People that I play with fear this sniper because of its looks and accuracy. Here are some out of the box pros.
Very sturdy gun- I wouldn't really call it light though. It is a bit heavy.
Accuracy- Very superior! BUT YOU MUST USE THE RIGHT BBs! Only use 32 gram is my advice. Don't exaggerate on using heavier bbs and definitely don't go any lighter. 32s work perfectly.
Range- pretty decent too. I have nailed so many targets from about 50yds away. Of course I had to "lead" the target but I still nailed them.
All in all, very worth the price of originaly $200 last I saw. I believe most Airsoft fields will accept this sniper.
Now for the negatives
It is a free floating barrel so you must me careful. I live where it snows a lot in the winter. I've sliped so many times and ended up banging this gun on the ground but I've been very lucky to not snap the barrel in half. NOT THAT THE BARREL IS WEAK but I still suggest you not drop it of course!
FPS- the FPS is a little low for my liking but the gun still has awesome range and accuracy (with the right bbs like I said)
HOP-UP- the Hop Up is under the barrel. It is very plasticy and a bit hard to adjust. So don't force it because it is weak.
Huge orange tip- The orange tip is of course for everyone's safety so that can't really be counted as a true negative but it really does give you away.
Upgrades- there are a few upgrades for this gun but they are so expensive! You practically pay for the gun again. I'm still staying with this gun as stock because it works very well.
So wrapping all this up, I believe I paid every worth cent for it. It performs well if you use it right and truly like the sniper role. I really have a ton of fun with this thing! I would recommend this gun to all serious snipers who would like a long range spring powered sniper. Read More Reviews Write a Review

*Scope and bipod in images not included King Arms Blaser R93 LRS1 Tactical Airsoft Sniper Rifle
The Blaser R93 LRS1 (Long Range Sporter 1) is a spring action sniper rifle. It has a straight-pull bolt action design which user can load the rifle in no time. Official licensed full Blaser trademarks are engraved on the Nylon Fiber lower receiver. The buttpad, cheek piece and trail spade on the Nylon Fiber stock are all adjustable. The Aluminum fluted outer barrel is CNC machined to reduce weight and maintain high quality finishing. There is a build-in top rail for magnification scope mounting. Package comes with a BB loader, a bipod adaptor and a 50 rounds magazine.
The LSR1 is a version of the Blaser R93 designed for snipers. More than 150,000 rifles have been sold worldwide since its release date in 1993. The R93 uses a unique system of straight pull mechanism instead of the old rotary system well known from the Mauser. This mechanism removes the action to lift up and push down the cocking handle. The biggest gain of the straight pull system is the short time needed to reload, and the capability of the shooter to stay aligned on the target, also it can be used by both right and left hand.
The Blaser R93 is used by numerous police department in the world, including France with the Paris Brigade Intervention (BI), but also in Germany, Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Holland, Malaysia, the United States, Slovenia and Ukraine.
