UTG GEN 5 COMPETITION MASTER

Postby Auram » Mon Apr 14, 2014 4:53 pm

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and somewhat new to airsoft, I have been playing for a few months and own an AEG but I have recently decided to start building a sniper to play around with, I am having some trouble deciding on a base gun to go with. I know that the BAR 10 / L96 clones are pretty standard to start with as they are very upgradeable, however I was looking at the UTG gen 5 competition master and I sort of like the looks of it, only problem is I can't find any information on the gun as far as upgrades go. I am sort of on a budget so whatever gun I decide on will have to be upgraded piece by piece over time, with that being said the base gun will need to be able to shoot at least half way decent out of the box and have upgrades available. I have already done a pretty decent amount of research on the 96's and the VSR/BAR10's so I have a pretty good idea of what will need to be done there, I just need some opinions on this particular gun, or maybe one I don't even know about yet haha, now, enlighten me airsoft masters.

btw here is a link to the gun I mentioned

There are two basic kinds of upgrade platforms for spring sniper rifles. Maruzen APS2 (L96 style models) & TM VSR-10 (M700 Style Models). Now, not every manufacturer builds it exactly the same as the APS2 or VSR-10, meaning that just because they look the part, doesn't mean they can actually take the upgrade.

In the case of UTG / Leapers, Their MK96 model should be completely APS2 compatible.
