Let me start by saying this is not the first arisoft gun i've owned, and this is not the first bolt action sniper rifle i've ever used and become familiar with.
This gun is an absolute beast. I took this thing out on a 2-day airsoft event with guys i've never played with before, who have been playing longer then i have. this weapon successfully put the fear of god into anybody on the receiving end of the muzzle. in 2 days i had over 24 comfirmed kills and had died less then 12 times. I will note that i was the only person on the field carrying any kind of sniper rifle, yet alone a spring sniper rifle. I put a 3x9x40mm scope on mine.
For a quick stats confirm. when i chronoed at the field my low ball with .20g bbs (anything bigger and the hop up cant compensate) was 538 fps my high ball was 578 fps. I made confirmed kills with this gun at scoped distance of 250 ft. i also made some no scope kills with it at between 200 and 250ft.
Last note before pros and cons. with a scope the bipod and a lite weight sling mine comes in at a whoping 10lbs. if you buy this you will be forced to learn to be a good sniper or you will get killed.
This gun has a lot of huge cons.
First accurate with .20g bbs up to about 250ft out.
Second it has enough fps to punch through thick brush to take out targets.
Third even if you miss your target the sound rounds make coming out of this gun literally make guys duck their hands down in fear.
This gun really does have cons.
First another guy at the game had a non upgraded version of the UTG MK96, which is the base platform for this gun. his bolt froze so it could no longer operate. the bright side is it was fixable. i took the screw out of the back of the bolt and took it apart. it turned out that if you take out the 2 springs and brass pins inside the gun, it resumed functioning perfectly fine.
Second the hop up is a little hard to get ajusted correctly. the best setting i could get causes my rounds to climb slightly the entire time. now the upside of that is it made it easier to adjust my scope to be on target.
Third if your not use to counting your shots this gun will take getting used to. i have yet to really find a good way of keeping track of how many rounds ive fired.
Fourth the bolt pull is very stiff. this is what gives it power but it also slows your raet of fire. now i turn a wrench for a living so i can throw this bolt rapid firing accurately, but ive handed it to buddys and they have a hard time pulling it back, so small warning you need to have strong arms to operate this sniper rifle.
