Bravo BV7 Sniper Rifle
This is my first airsoft sniper rifle. I ordered it with an Airsoft GI 3-9x40 scope (awesome scope by the way). Let me just say that I am very impressed. This rifle is very nice. It's barrel is larger (thicker) that it looks and its stock is smaller than it looks. The weight of this gun feels very good. It has a good hard bolt pull back and it's very powerful. The inner barrel of this gun starts at the magwell and ends where the muzzle break begins. The bolt of this gun is very sturdy, thick metal along with the rest of its assembly and the barrel. I love that this gun's rails are metal, I wouldn't have bought the gun if they weren't. When I bought this I slapped the scope on and took it to back yard just to make sure it shot. Somehow my reticle was already right where the bb was hitting. THis gun is accurate, powerful, and you can see the bb even if its dark green. The metal which the upper assembly is made of feels very sturdy, however the plastic of the stock is not as good as I would prefer. It isn't bad plastic, but I prefer the plastic of a G36 or similar. I do wish the plastic on this gun was textured, but it definitely is not bad. Let's look at the pros and cons of this rifle.
I would absolutely recommend this gun to anyone getting into the game of sniping. Like I said, it's my first rifle, but it meets all of my standards for an airsoft rifle. Go for it!
The stock, though it is hollow, is weighted so it feels AWESOME, not a hollow feel at all.
Bipod is nice-ish (its extremely sturdy metal, but not the most fantastic bipod. its definitely a good one for the price)
Hard bolt pull back
Great look with scope (if I didn't already mention it, this rifle certainly looks the part, and I believe it performs the part as well)
Not as good plastic for stock as I would prefer (but not bad)
Stock not textured
Plastic trigger guard (feels more like metal though)
Only one magazine, but I knew that when I bought it
This isn't really a con, but the bipod of course is not attached to the gun when you open the box, and it took me a little while to attach it to the gun because the piece between the screw and the rail was put in upside down so it was wedged extremely tightly under the screw of the bipod, and until i pried it off w/ a screwdriver and put it on right, it couldn't go onto the rail. Just be aware that that might happen with your bipod. Not a con, just a weird happening
Overall, the good of this gun far outweighs the bad which doesn't affect performance. I love the look, feel and performance of this rifle!
