Foot in the Door

What are everyone's thoughts on a good beginner sniper rifle? I prefer long range and accuracy obviously but I don't want to break the bank just in case I don't enjoy sniping as much as I think I am going to. All responses are welcome!

Stay Frosty y'all,
Ghost

Try your luck with a second hand VSR series gun. May get one with some upgrades already and for a decent price.

I own a UTG L96, but listen to the vets and get the VSR platform guns. Its a superior platform that has more aftermarket support than an APS platform or the other types of snipers out there.

Superior is subjective honestly, I find the L96 more comfortable to hold especially for long periods of time. There's plenty of support for the Type 96s. However, I would get the Well instead of the UTG if going with the Type 96 platform.

Bar-10 will have the most upgrades, and possibly be slightly more affordable, but a Type 96 compatible gun is still a great starter, as is an APS2 compatible gun

As mentioned either the Jing Gong Bar10 or the WELL L96 (as long as the mag is in the wrong place. This means it is a copy of the Maruzen L96 which is a good gun. The TM copy is not a great rifle)
The Bar10 is lighter and has a slightly bigger cylinder but only just. So upgradeability, they are pretty similar.

I'm 100% with KillerDad on this one.

Bar-10 + Maple Leaf hop arm + Maple Leaf Autobot bucking, and you'll have a really decently performing rifle for little money
