||This gun is an excellent replica and sniper rifle!
First off, this gun looks and feels great. Like all Classic Army guns, it is made out of high quality metal, so it is very sturdy. Plus the silencer gives it a great look.
There are a few things you pretty much have to get along with this gun: 1) A sling (this gun can wear you down after a while) 2) A bipod, which helps alot in prone firing 3) a scope, 4 or 6 times magnification is perfect 4) .30 gram BBs are recommended, as they provide best performance
IMPORTANT!!! I would highly recommend to anyone that purchases this gun to NOT fire it on full auto. Even with the gearbox being preupgraded by CA, it is simply too powerful to hold up on full auto. The piston on mine bit the dust after around 1500 shots.
After my SR-25 broke I had it repaired and upgraded. I had the piston replaced with a stronger, more durable piston, and I also had a madbull tightbore barrel installed. For any serious airsoft players, I highly recommend getting the same installments, and possibly even upgrading the spring.
With my upgrades and .30 gram BBs I have a highly effective range of around 60 to 70 yards. I can easily pick people off at those distances with 3 to 5 shots. Anything past that and the BBs simply stray a bit more, but you can still reach people around 80 yards or more. I'm sure with a more powerful spring and even heavier BBs you could get this rifle to 90 or even 100 yard range.
1) Full Metal, Sturdy, Good looking
2) Great Overall Performance: FPS, rate of fire, and accuracy all A+
3) An incredibly dominating sniper rifle
1) Piston is almost sure to give out at some point
2) High price, but the quality of CA material is well worth it
Definitely worth getting for any serious airsoft sniper. I would simply upgrade the items I specified. I guarantee this gun is made of better materials than the A&K SR-25
