Yeah, its sounding pretty fun, i have to say.

I've been looking into making a ghillie suit, so that should be extra fun.

I've only used AEG's before, and i saw some of you mentioning springers. Are springers more consistent or something? Im not sure what the difference is.

PS That sniper clinic sounds pretty cool. PM me the details

Yeah, my price range is around 300 bucks. If my Ak sells, it'll be upwards of 400, but thats about it. Im just looking for something that wont give me more trouble than its worth

If your budget is 300, I wouldn't look at a sniper rifle. A fully upgraded rifle will run you upwards of 1,000 usually.

A stock TM VSR could work though... not sure about prices nowadays.

I've seen a few m14's for 300, but i was expecting it to be pricey.

Im fine with using AEG's with upgrades... just as long as im able to sneak around and all that fun stuff

E: That TM Vsr looks pretty damn good. I like that style

I thought about becoming a sniper on my team but I ended up getting a G3 and converting it into a DMR style weapon. Long range and full auto for when the "shit hits the fan" I'm really enjoying it, but I also like weapons that are fairly uncommon.

It's really fun if your good at it lol
But are you looking for just a marksman rifle, or an actual purebreed bolt action rifle?

Im fine with any type. I just kinda wanted the classic sniper rifle style so i can prone and the mag wont get in the way. That was my biggest problem with my ak. I like to lay down and slowly push, and it turned into a real annoyance.

Yeah, understandable. Games are mostly forests and brush, hence the ghillie.
One of my friends also told me about a 2-day long milsim that i was curious about. I think that the sniper would be pretty valuable in one of those.

PS. Thank you guys for helping a noobie

You could get an M16 style DMR, like a SAMR, and just use the VN mags
It'll get you closer the the ground, but if you want accuracy and repeatability, you'll need a spring rifle
