Best Sniping/ Most Power

I'll be completely honest, i know nothing about airsoft rifles. What i do know is that i have a unlimited budget (being reasonable) and a desire to own something that can reach out and touch someone at long distance and with as much power as possible.

Now i know that you guys are the proper educated ones so please educate me as to what is best for my current situation. I work in the military in england as a marksman but am looking for something that i can take with me well visiting in canada to shoot and keep in practice.

many thanks in advance for your help.

A heavily upgraded and professionally custom built Tokyo Marui VSR-10 G-SPEC is your best bet for what you are looking for. You will not realistically be able to bring this weapon back and forth with you from the UK to Canada with any ease due to importation laws without thorough knowledge and preparation with customs laws and procedures.

The power of your rifle will be limited and capped by the game/club/field rules that you choose to play with if you intend to shoot it at other people. Most have a similar limit for sniper rifles as regular weapons and so you may simply not have the advantage that you imagine you would have. Sniping dynamics in airsoft are very different from those of a real firearm and will likely not give you what you desire. If you are simply seeking power and range and will not be shooting at human beings, then you are in the wrong place and you are looking for an airgun/pellet rifle.

If you work in the military in England, then consult the local UK airsoft groups as they have much more open access to airsoft weapons due to the UK's liberal airsoft laws and also lower prices. Airsoft importation is neither cheap nor simple in Canada.

Realistically i would like to be able to buy something in canada, the thing is that i simply do not want ot fall out of practice. As for travelling with the gun i plan on keeping it in canada as i'm recently married to a Canadian and plan on coming back to Canada quite frequently. In reality, it simply comes down to me wanting to keep my ability to calculate vectoring and the effect of wind on a bullet. I find the best way to do that is to be able to take a shot, otherwise i get tired of the maths.

Many thanks with the help on this by the way. I apologize for my inexperience.

pellet guns are better than airsoft for target shooting. and more accessible.

as for airsoft, i'd recommend for bang/buck a jg bar-10. though this is mostly china garbage, swap out the hopup/barrel for the marui set and the cylinder head to anything else then clean/lube and you have a great sniper rifle. personally i've also installed a pdi trigger group package and entire cylinder set (laylax cylinder head though, it's better) and it's been the best and cheapest sniper rifle i've owned or come against in my 7 years of airsoft. that said, it's still not as good as a pellet gun :P

heavily upgraded CA M24?
should run you about 800-1.2k if someone else built it already, or about 1.5-1.7k if you build it yourself.
and there is your remington 700 feel.

Why are you looking at airsoft then? And not simply purchasing a real firearm? Airsoft dynamics are completely different from that of a real firearm or even an average pellet/air gun.

If you are practicing for playing actual airsoft games, then go with what I previously recommended.

An airsoft rifle will not help your marksmanship. Even a slight breeze will easily blow a plastic bb off your intended vector and realistically, 200-250 feet is the most you can expect out of range.

My experience in Canadian law is limited, If a pellet gun would work better i am more than up for it but i'm leaving for canada in a week and do not have time to apply for a proper license for a firearm. I will be able to fire proper rifles at canadian bases but i would still like to be able to practice on my own.

Then you should be looking at a pellet gun for your needs. You should be on this website. Pellet guns require no liscenses in general.

I realize that due to a variety of factors airsoft will never be able to compensate for actually being able to shoot a real firearm but i still find it boring to do the maths without being able to fire something. I would much rather have a actual firearm but i dont think that is feasible in my timeframe.

Again thank you.

I would go with an airgun/pellet gun. Go ask about them at the airgunforum.ca site. They are more akin to real firearms, have much more power and range.

Also airguns are completely legal in Canada whereas Airsoft exists in a grey area and are much more different to aquire and consequently much more expensive.

Thanks for your help.

This website is extremely difficult to put the correct digits through the confirmation code, any tricks?
