I wouldn't say that gun is crap. Got to play around with one today and i must say it out preformed most of the other guns here... though most guns were bone stock and/or cqc guns. BUT with a few exceptions it had the best range... GREAT accuracy BUT my JG/Kraken could take out the sniper every time with volume of fire vs his single percision shot. REALLY fun gun to shoot though. I'm planning on getting one (though i wouldn't pay that much) eventually for plinking and target shooting. Not really gameable though. If you want to do the whole sniper thing but still have fun, get a gillie and get an m16 with a tightbore. that way you have range/accuracy AND the ability to hose when required.

neither, seriously, don't buy a sniper rifle. Get age verrified, and buy a AEG over the ASC classifieds. If you are serious about sniping then buy something with some longish range ability. Maybe a M-16 or a M-14. We see many, many new players come to this site, most of them wanting to become snipers, dreamin of 100 yard perfect shots while hiding in some tree, perfectly concealed. the problem is, as skladfin put it, unless your willing to invent a few thousand dollars in your gun, all your getting is a gun thats just as accurate as a M-16, but shoots a hell of a lot slower.

But, if you really have your heart set on sniping, go to a game, ask to try out a sniper rifle, get a feel for it. maybe it is for you, but just a heads up, most game organizers dont trust strangers with potentially danerous guns, many of them require you to have completed the sniper saftey training workshop.

Oh also, bolt actions are shit when there are twigs everywhere. you NEED full auto if you are going to actually hit anything in a game. Targets are one thing, they don't hide.

some of the Snow Dragons I game with field an L96. They spent a lot of time and money on upgrades not only on the gun but on their battle gear and to them it is worth it. The L96 to them is their pride and joy and live for "one shot one kill". You may find a better deal if you get AV'd and check the classifieds where the rifles have already been accessorized and upgraded it just makes life easier then having to track down parts and upgrades and then having to install them or find someone to do it for you. Get a hold of one of the Snow Dragon snipers and i am sure they will tell you strait up what you want to know and then some.

Bottom Line is, you have one shot to get the hit. If you miss, your most likely screwed and are going to be hit. That is why new players that buy Snipers don't have a very good time. If your REALLY want a sniper, buy one down the road when you have some experience, or buy a gun like an M-16 or M-4 which are basically a Sniper and a AEG put together.

Bottom line is, why pay a few hundred dollars for a gun that can do only one thing, when you can get an AEG put a bit of money in it and have it do the same thing as a sniper rifle. If you are really interested in a sniper rifle, may I suggest a G3 SG1 with tightbore barrel.

Let's say I go with a Single-Shot sniper, (like the Ultimate - Bolt Action or the VSR-10)

It will cost me around $230 - $320 for the Gun with Scope and 2 Mags.

What upgrades will I likely need, and roughly what is the cost of each upgrade?

for that 300 bucks you can't even really get a good AEG, you defanitely wont get a good sniper rifle.

What will likely hapen is that you will ignore us, buy the sniper, and be horibly disapointed when you find you cant hit a target 50 feet away. And that target your missing isn't running at you spewing 10 bb's a second...

Definitely a good quality hopup + rubber.

I guess sorbo pads or something (not sure if those are only for AEG's though).

Tightbore.

That's all that comes off the top of my head, but I've heard of people dumping a lot of cash on their gun to make it a game worthy sniper rifle. Also chances are no ones going to let you run a hot gun on the field not knowing who you are. You have to be trusted, safety oriented, and proven, so you'll likely be running a 400 FPS gun rather than 425-450.

I guess I'll have to get AV'd and check the classified for a decent gun than, which would you recommend?

And I also don't plan on standing in an open field while a person runs at me full auto.

Man get a G&G cansoft or a JG aeg instead. You can get 20 kills at a game with an AEG or MAYBE 1 or 2 with that bolt action. Plus $300-350 for an aeg or get the bolt action, plus $50-100 for the inner barrel, and i have no idea about the hopup but i'd imagine it to be more than $30 and then you'd need the better spring (more reliable one) AND you need to install all this without breaking anything.

Try to contact a local game organizer, and see if you can go to a game.
There (if people like you) you might be able to try out a few differant guns, and find one you like.

Also, i wasn't talking about standing in an open field, i was talking about how close you would need to be to even have a chance at hitting something with a stock 300 dollar sniper rifle. And some people are good at spotting snipers

EDIT: Read this, yes, the whole post Airsoft Canada

that bolt action is actually great within 130-150 feet. Tack driver.... Though.... many aegs can get towards 200.
