Riiiiight. Because it doesn't matter how effective it is, being a l33t sn1p@r is all about the looks.

The V2 mechbox is about one of the worst to base a sniper platform off of, especially the Armalite variants. Flawed hopup design that leaks air like a seive and unwinds on its own, flawed mechbox design incapable of handling springs over M130 for very long. But hey, it looks teh uber sex when you're sitting in the safe zone, right?

Gvanzeggelaar, if you *really* want to be a sniper, get the right tool for the job. Pick an inexpensive bolt-action like a VSR-10 (or a VSR clone) and add a few basic upgrades like a tightbore, spring and zero-trigger and you're set. However, as pointed out already, the right gun is only a small part of the puzzle.
