Need help choosing first spring sniper rifle.

Postby visor61 » Wed Jan 16, 2013 11:18 am

As the topic says, I am looking to get a spring sniper rifle. My budget is around $150. I have been looking at the UTG MK96 and the JG BAR 10. Could anyone please give me their opinion on these guns or other suggestions?

Both are very good choices since they're both highly upgradable with aftermarket parts (other than that MK96 parts seem to be cheaper than VSR/BAR parts). As for which is better the only major differences that could possibly affect performance is that MK96 uses a much better hop up mechanism since it's applying straight down pressure unlike the BAR which uses a lever on the side giving uneven pressure causing a curve in your BB (this can be solved). And the different sear degrees, the BAR uses a 45 degree and the MK96 uses a 90 degree. Be aware the MK96 is large, heavy and bulky while the BAR is very very light and much easier to move about with.

Weight may not be that bad. I will likely get a sling for the rifle since I will be running with my Tavor as a back-up if I am caught in a close range engagement.

Good luck carrying two full sized rifles around. It's certainly doable, but its a pain in the a$$. You're better off with a handgun for close range engagements

I understand that having two full rifles in my load out may be difficult. That is however getting off topic. I would really appreciate getting your opinion as to what a good sniper rifle would be within my price range.

I just gave you information about what rifle to get, are you looking for $150 l33t sniper? or a stock $150 sniper?

Pinguicula, I am not sure what you mean by a L33T sniper. I am simply looking for a good sniper that will require little to no upgrading.

Right Hook Mantis- $1200
Real Sword Type 85- $580
That's if you can find them. If you don't upgrade your sniper rifle you may as well stick with an AEG

EDIT: Correction, the Mantis is $2200, not $1200 :D

You're really not going to get any stock gun that's going to out perform AEGs on the field, Unless you go to Apo's suggestions... If you want something that will need minimal upgrade to be affective again your choice in what you want (BAR/MK96), drop in a new TBB and since you want little upgrading that will be it. If your going to purchase a spring rifle and expect it to perform well you don't have a budget of $200, My VSR is at the $800 mark and it can still be better.

Well for that much money I may as well go and buy a real rifle. I am not a pro airsofter. The most I play is a backyard game on 3-4 acres. I don't need a gun that will cost me several hundred dollars for casual play.
