A non-upgraded spring sniper? You'd be better off throwing BBs at people. I had a similar issue so I bought a couple extra AEGs, they are a much better loaner and backup. I've a had a fully upgraded TM L96, total cost would've put me at over $1,400 and it still wasn't precision enough to be worth my time. They are only fun if they are crack accurate and you want to be in the top 1% on the field for distance.
If you're set on buying a cheap one, then get one that is 100% TM VSR compatible. At least later on you can tinker with it and make it viable.
