This was my first Airsoft sniper rifle, and at first, I was really disappointed. When I took it out of the box, I was really impressed. The weight is really nice, the plastic feels solid, the bolt isn't too hard to pull, and it looks really nice overall. Mine didn't have missing screws for the other guy, so he must have gotten a lemon, mine was solid right out of the box. It shoots hard, but not 500 like it says on the site. Mine was chronoed at 460 before it was sent to me, according to a little slip of paper.
Then I brought it out and shot around with it a bit, and this thing was not accurate at all. I was using .25 because I really didn't have any other BBs, but even with lighter BBs, the accuracy was terrible. After cleaning the barrel it still shot horribly, then suddenly out of no where, just about a week ago, it started shooting amazingly accurate, even with .25s. I screwed around with the hop up a bit and now I can hit trees in my neighbors backyard from my roof (about 350 feet). It's been shooting awesome ever since.
Bolt is easy to pull
Shot HORRIBLY out of the box
Doesn't shoot 500 fps like the site says
I feel like this gun is a hit or miss, either the guy before me got a lemon or I got really lucky. If you want to risk it, get this gun, though I wouldn't recommend it for a first sniper, I was getting ready to sell it because of how horribly it shot. If I wasn't so determined on accepting the gun as a good gun, I would have sent it back right away.
