Here's without the silencer on :P lol

Edit: since you're gonna be sniping... Want protectors for your scope?

I made myself one that sits in the lense cover thing that it came with Click the link in my sig if you're interested.. Just trying to generate enough cash so I can get myself a fully equiped lexan shop (able to do bending, cutting, shaping, ect ect.)

I agree - The overall quality of the scope is okay. 3-9x40 is awesome for this rifle, though I personally would want more clarity from the scope. *It's definitely not "unclear", just a little fuzzy around the edges when you zoom in a lot* though that doesn't at all take away from the effectiveness of the weapon.

Keep in mind that it's pretty rare that you'll ACTUALLY be zoomed in fully when using this gun. Most people keep it at 3x and leave it.

nice review.

I've been wanting to get a bolt action sniper for a while, just so I have options when I go to games. I've been looking at the JG bar 10 and the l96 that you have just reviewed. So the bar 10 is marui compatible, and just like the marui, should be upgraded for best use and higher FPS, BUT the l96 seems very strong right from the box. I don't know if the l96 will be a better investment, or if the JG bar 10 will be because of it being a good platform for upgrades.

The L96 is strong out of the box, but it is not accurate.

Strength =/= accuracy.

Update:

Seems the L96 that mark sells is not 100% compatible with the maruzen stuff, I bought a silencer adapter only to find out that the Clone L96's threading is the opposite way than the adapter made for the maruzen... This was a really easy fix though, all it took was about 5 minutes of dremeling off the threads of the adapter, then securing it on with some JB weld. Simple.

Newbie's FYI Research

Saw that similar model of the Mauser L96 at http://www.pyramydair.com/cgi-bin/mo...?model_id=1488 and it is said to be made by UTG.

To NDAS you should check out www.airsoftretreat.com/reviews/ for the JG Bar-10 and they also reviewed both UTG and AGM versions of the L96. With the teflon mod and shortening of the air brake for JG Bar-10, the reviewer got close to 500fps for a stock rifle.

Hey DNE2, (stupid question but) did you check your email to activate your account first. Cause I also had the same problem of not seeing the prices and Mark of A&A answered was my account had previleges to see the prices; just sign-in first then all prices are shown to you. My problem was with IE6 which shifted all the items way down on the page when logged-on. If you still can't get the price for L96; it is $368 include GST but, not shipping which is another $30-40.

Sorry, I don't and yea it is kind of odd that you can't see the prices and add anything into your cart. I logged-on and added something into my cart, it was working fine so, your best option is to email Mark Anderson at A&A about your account, his response is usually in 24hours.

Hey!

Does anybody know if the Well L96 sold from BuyAirsoft.ca is the Version 1 or the Version 2?

Another question: Should I care if it is the Version 1 or Version 2?

Thanks Guys!

They're product info is old and pretty sure is version 1 but, this is a new shipment for them cause i got a notice of they're arrival. Since this a new shipment it might be version 2 so, best thing to do is email them.

The only major difference while surfing for info between 1(around 450fps) and 2(closer to 500fps) is in fps but, hopefully with stronger internals for version 2 cause of increase in fps.

UPDATE: www.Buyairsoft.ca has changed the profile and price of Well L96; now it's $301 and comes with a scope + 2 mags but, NO BIPOD.

I just want to share a photo of my Well L96 (Warrior 1)
Out of the box, this baby chronoed at 460fps with .25g bb. I already fired over 2,000 rounds in this rifle. I'll chrono this again to check its current fps.
The suppressor is a DIY, made out of several layers of PVC pipes and a small amount of sound absorbing material (foam)

Mine comes in black... I did a little paint job to give it a different look. I'm planning to give it a tune-up. After that, I'll be painting the whole receiver and scope mount with the same "grassland" pattern.

Question about this. Apparently the Maruzen one has something that indicates when you've loaded the last round from the magazine? Does this thing have that as well?

EDIT:

Ok, after some digging, it does appear that this gun has the empty mag indicator, but it's assembled wrong and needs some modifucking to get working.
