If you dont mind im gonna go "off-topic" and say that I have never fired GBB anything, so idk.

I do like aeg's, although ive never used a sniper.

My friend has a spring sniper that his dad found in the apartment he was cleaning out, and the landlady said he could keep it. I havnt been hit with it yet, but it fires well over 390, but the guy was using it with .12s :evil:

I put my .20s in it and that gun(That came with a VERY NICE scope, worthy of a RS) is deadly accurate. Im not sure of its full range, but i liked it

all in all spring all day every day. unless we're talking SOCOM gear BARRETT :lol:
Primary: JG M4 S-System Enhanced (Working a sick battery mod!!)
Secondary: H&K USP45 CO2 NBB (Broken now :evil: )

My opinion: gas is the funnest, spring is the most consistent and simple and aeg is too expensive and complicated (but can be as accurate as spring) where it doesn't need to be (unless you're a dmr type roll)

Necro but IDGAF.

Sprin'g sweet to start with. Easy to f*ck with, easy to use, cheap.
Downsides are noise (depending, but usually louder than gas)
Rate of fire (One shot one kill is nice, but if there's two guys it gets tricky...)

Gas is cool in theory. Incredibly high (to the point of ballistic instability) fps, quieter, and simple.
Downsides are cost (hpa is pricey but the best option)
Cooldown (expanding gas makes sh*t cold and the doesn't expand as well and can blow seals)
Inconsistency (unless HPA your pressure drops every shot and changes your trajectory)

AEG is bad in theory. Expensive, battery life can be short, longevity of internal components, cylinder volume is small, loud, and getting a velocity high enough can be pretty hard, options can be limited.
Upsides:
Buy a Realsword and none of those things are a problem and you're now on par with every spring and gas gun you'll come across, but with a higher ROF, more stable (compared to gas) velocity, no cooldown, higher mag capacity, and you're cool as sh*t.

Legitimately.
AEG<Gas<Spring<Gas<Realsword

Compatibility between platforms is another factor

Gas snipers are fairly specific and in case of the Ares DMP (hit man sniper) requires a shed load of time to make it take standard parts

Electric is a more reliable option then gas at a equal or lower price (Barret 50. not included)

Spring opens up compatibility unless its the old maruzen APS2 which is also in the "echo 1 ASR"= A S### Rifle

Though you also get hybrids which are slightly more expensive then spring but not by much.

The Swiss Arms VSR10 has the uber compatible vsr spring parts as well as a co2 bolt for when performance is needed more then the reliability and longer run time of spring.

In the end of your looking for a certain model that isn't an L96, VSR or Druganov then it won't be cheap but is available in most preferences

JAW M24 is all APS2.

Pretty easy to build a gas rifle for <$700 that'll do pretty good. An AEG equivalent will usually cost around that or a little more. Gas has more upkeep.

My gas-ram guns dont loose veloicty compared to my spring guns.The spring guns take time to warm up in the sub freezing weather.

Interesting. I actually just finished my material strengths homework and it talked about how steel has a higher youngs modulus at lower temperatures. I guess even though it stores more energy for the same distance it's compressed it still expands slower. Metal's complicated.

I still would guess gas would have more energy loss in cold temperatures; lower temperatures in a constant volume system result in decreased relative pressure. Should expand slower and take more gas/shot.
