Go by random uninformed reviews on the retailer's website. Those are always
Yea, don't worry about anything we say. It's not like we have any experience with any of this stuff. This is Airsoft Canada after all. Oh, wait....
Now, I've actually owned
the L96 you're looking at.. the WELL version. To give you a bit of background, I play a rifleman when I play. I bought the sniper rifle simply to try out and have the occasional fun with at a game, and to do random plinking with a bolt action.
I sold it about a month after I bought it. THAT should tell you something. The tolerances were crap. The finish was crap. The bipod was crap. The scope was actually the only decent thing on it.
It's a fine gun if you're not serious about playing the sniper role (read: not having an overly effective gun). But I WOULD NOT recommend it as a first airsoft gun AT ALL. Do you know what a sear is? Do you know what a trigger box is? Read up if you buy this gun. You'll end up replacing one or the other in very short order.
