As to the request like said most aeg have the same accuracy and to really reach out and touch someone at a distance require alot of upgrading and tuning to your gun. But if you want something that has good distance but you can change over to cqb play for indoor use look for an aeg with a quick change spring or cylinder. This will allow you to easily change the fps of you gun making it cqb legal at 350 fps and increasing your range for outdoor use at 400 fps. also an m4 m-16 platform would give you the option of having more than one upper receiver and barrel assembly. This would give you the advantage of having one barrel longer for ranged play and one shorter for indoor use at the removal of a pin.
This is all pretty basic stuff as i don`t know a whole lot i just don`t think we need to be so hasty in flaming people, he might be an idiot or some kid, or maybe a really cool guy.
SUCK IT!! LOL
Hope to shoot some of you soon!!!
Face palms in abundance!
AEG's are limited in range, power, or accuracy potential, as with any gun. You can make certain AEG's very quiet, and make them up for a more stealthy role. Being a sniper is difficult, expensive, and boring in airsoft, and many a new player waists their time and money with dreams of this. Get yourself a reliable assault platform first, and properly upgrade it. If you're planning on jumping from indoor to outdoor, you'll realistically need two guns, as pulling springs isn't easy or terribly worth it on most assemblies. After you have all your gear, and a reliable platform or two; this is when to "try" sniping. Most places require you to have a BA (bolt action) gun to exceed the assault FPS limits. The best platforms are the Tokyo Marui VSR family, or the Maruzen APS-2 family. If you're on a budget, check out the Classic Army M24; but avoid clones at all costs if you're taking this seriously. Expect to put several hundred dollars in high end upgrades into you sniper rifle to make it even remotely game able, or you'll be beaten up badly by all the assault platforms on the field.
A solid DMR like a Tokyo Marui M14 is great when tuned and upgraded properly, but beware of long guns; even an M16, if you're are short or inexperienced. They can be cumbersome, trip you up, and even give away your position.
Getting AV'ed is a very important part of joining the national community, and will give you access to tons of information, not just the classifieds. Plus the experienced members can tell you what to buy, where to buy, and how much to spend so you don't get swindled or talked into buying garbage by a bad retailer. You'll find crack gun doctors for every platform, and a comprehensive set of experienced posts that can answer all your questions.
