Honestly I'd recommend starting out with an aeg, you can get a sharp shooter style rifle still and mount a scope ect, Such as an m14 or sr25 variant. Bolt actions often dont work perfectly out of the box, not saying all aegs do either. And it takes a lot of upgrades and $$$. Also how you play the game, if you are really a sniper its not about a huge kill count, if someone with an aeg finds your position and is with in 100 ft or less it can be tough. It could get frustrating. Ill let some of the other guys on this forum give your their advise, such as hectic and some other snipers out there.
