Tsd l96 Sniper rifle?

So ive already got a jg m16 that i enjoy quite a bit and was thinking about upgrading it and making it better. Someone i know is selling there tsd l96 sniper with and upgraded plastic trigger box to a metal one and also an upgraded bolt. comes with a bipod and 3-9x40 scope.

Now i posted before wanting a sniper and alot of people ripped me apart saying how a sniper is a bad choice for a first gun, without putting a ton of money into a good starter sniper. But im really thinking about picking this up for $250.

Are they really not worth getting unless you put a ton of money into them?
Whats your opinion on the gun?

First: It's a sniper RIFLE (a sniper is a person)

Second: TSD is a cheap chinese Knock off and, even with an upgraded trigger box, will be out performed by many AEGs.

Third: 250$ for a use TSD that probably has a 50$ trigger box is too high, it's not a deal.

I like this one




Ok, this one was harsh...(but you got to admit it's funny)

You really need to read, there is tons of thread about the L96 and its clones. There's a new one every week (sometimes everyday). And when we say "Don't get a sniper rifle as your first gun" we don't mean "get one as soon as you bought your first AEG". You should play a few games and see what's out there.

To put it short.

A stock, clone, peice of shit sniper rifle will never hold up in a game.

250 isn't an investment, its being cheap.

Get an AEG, accuracy through volume will benefit you more than a rifle that can't hold compression worth a damn.

Whats your opinion on the gun?
The role of a person running a bolt action is not as glorious as it seems. Often it can be amazingly slow paced and sometimes boring, well as boring as you are willing to make it. It can be equally fun and exciting if you let it.

Perhaps contact this person who is selling said rifle and maybe toss them 25 dollars to "rent it out" for a game to see if you like the play style. At least that way you will know if its something that you will enjoy or even use, before committing to something only to have it rot away in your closet in the basement untouched and unloved....much like that tread mill I bought that sits collecting dust in the corner of my basement.

The play style is considerably different, you have to be incredibly adaptive and observant. You will have slightly more range on your targets than some however with upgrades these days you could very well be just as equally matched or even outmatched by someone with an AEG or bolt action. The airsoft gun itself is only a part of the equation. Although it does factor significantly. A lower end product may not perform as well and you may not find it as aesthetically pleasing due to its lower tolerances in comparison to a higher end product. This differences could leave a sour taste in your mouth.

At $250.00CAD that seems a like a minor commitment ( it could be extravagant or modest. I have no idea what your income is), although it does have upgrades. Although you didnt state the brand of upgrades so I cannot comment on that.

One things for certain though, you draw fire like you wouldnt believe. Most people perceive people with bolt action rifles to be a threat. You will get peppered, it will suck...a lot. That is part of the game though.

To summarize my long winded post. Try it, then buy it, but only if you like it.

You'll be outmatched by someone tossing BBs at you :P
Usually can't engage within 100ft and too inaccurate for greater distances.

Some people make me wonder. A cheap gun shooting at 450fps with the hop up tuned correctly, will shoot just as far as an expensive tm rifle at the same speed. There guns don't deny the laws of physics! There the same guys that will tell you that there 2000$ guns are the best thing they have ever bought. And everything else is a p.o.s.

Let me rewrite that for you

A shitty cheap gun filled with shitty cheap parts, including shitty hop up will NOT shoot as far or as accurately as a correctly tuned TM compatible rifle with the correct upgrades.

Do not give out bullshit information.
