Most preferred sniper weapon

This is obviously for the airsoft snipers out there. Question is, what is the prefered primary sniper weapon to use for sniper related missions and sharpshooter related missions (FIBUA/urban ops).

Feel free to comment the pro's and con's of particular sniper weapons for various ops.

On a side note, it is HIGHLY recomended that the sniper have a secondary weapon that shoots below 400fps. If you are shooting a hot BA/sniper weapon you must either have a secondary or a spotter that is armed with an AEG that shoots below 400fps. Remember snipers do not mercy with thier primary weapon, this is obviously a safety issue.

For sharpshooting / tactical shooters in an urban / FIBUA / MOUT environment - TM M14! Need a secondary? A full auto Glock or an MP7.

HAWT SHTUFF!

Yes the good ol M14 that i fired last year, nice piece of kit, great for counter-sniping too, given that it is upgraded.

I vouch for M24!!

Pros.... sturdy, precise... a work horse. Did I mention it's heavy!?

Con... CA crap: need to be completely upgraded.

I tried many other sniping platformes. I still prefer the M24 for it's overall feel and precision.

The APS2 is the close follower in my opinion. I just don't like the weight and the musle break.

For FIBUA and urban, I'd say it's pretty cumbersome. For field, hell ya, when upgraded properly, but for urban, I'd say something set up similar that is shorter. Unless one is engaging over 200ft through awindow, then the M24 set up properly, as well as APS2 etc. is the shit giggles are made of!

I know it's not what you'd expect, but I never, ever, had trouble sniping with my Marui AK on semi-auto. It just happens to be accurate enough and have sufficient reach.

If my new toy makes it by June 22, I'll comment on that.

Some of the most amazing shots in airsoft games I've seen came from Raven's bolt action rifle.

Me personally prefer the APS for field ops, first and foremost it will work in cold weather, thus when everyone elses AEG's crap out, theres your window of oportunity to engage at free will, and hopefully they dont have a secondary that works. As for urban ops, I prefer the M4 variant. I cant comment on stock APS's as when I got mine it was already upgraded internally, with some help i got a tightbore barrel and the tech's added an extension to the outter barrel. Ive nailed a guy over 200ft with it , luckely mother nature was on my side at the time of the shot, no wind. Once this BA is upgraded and tweeked, add good field tactics, and good ammo, it is just as effective as the M249 or an upgraded AEG, obviously far less firepower. But who says a spotter cannot be armed with a machine gun? :grin:

Theres pros and cons with BA weapons when your up against players with AEG's, but like its been mentioned before, its how you as a sniper team actually know and how to employ those tactics to be effective in the field. Hence why it is crucial that the spotter be armed with an AEG, that meets field regulations.

One doesnt have to have a BA to effectively play the sniper role, any type of AEG will do. And as it has been mentioned, AEG's work well.

this is slightly off-topic, but do the BA rifles have better accuracy than AEGs? I wouldn't think so...

Hmmm lets see sniper = kills from long distance with 1 shot....

I'd got with a nuclear missle

Pros:
1 shot several kills
Extreme Range
Can be done from inside of a secured bunker with no risk to yourself

Cons:
One hell of a mess to clean up afterwards
Possible enemy nuke comming your way.



Does this count 8) Not quite airsoft, but meh :razz:



Otherwise I'm kinda partial to the SR-25

Generally, yes.
Spring BA rifle are more concistent and precise.
The big advantage is the fact that they are quiet with a little more punch.

My longest confirmed kill is around 300feets.
I'v made a lot of kills past the 200feets marks. Lots of them are confirmed and with witness.

I'm sporting a 450fps M24 with most of the time .30g or .43g bbs.
My long shots where done with .30 if I remember right.

To give you an idea of how acurate it is. One time, I felt too short to shoot a guy advancing on a team mate. He was laying on his belly, slowly crawling in position, 90degrees to mee. I had a clear shot of him and his G36K. About 100feets. I fired at his G36k and hit the handguard. The BBs waking loudly on his gun made him stay put and than give up to go respawn. Mission accomplished.

Few AEG can do that unless upgraded to shit, and still, my position would have been reveiled by the noises.
