Contrary to some opinion the clone L96 that are available are worth the money you pay, around $320ish with a decent scope, and it shoots over 400fps with .20bb. However this is not enough of an advantage over an AEG to make it worth it, AEG's have a single fire mode, you can mount a scope and turn an AEG into a "sniper rifle". I've spent an additional $350ish on parts to make my L96 into what I would consider a relevant sniper rifle, and there are game restrictions on a rifle that shoots "hot".
Save yourself the hassle and money (unless you have lots $$ then go crazy) and pick up a good AEG like a G&G for around $300. The final range's out of the box are pretty much the same, and you'll be good to play any type of game with that.
