SRS Sport model or not...

I recently ordered the Silverback SRS A1 sport w/ the 20" from Evike cuz, 1. the descriptions on the website are pretty much identical to the covert, which had been my first choice. 2. When I called to ask about it, I was told the same thing by the Evike Customer Service. Also, it saved me $100, which I figured could just about buy me the WASP kit upgrade.
Upon further research, IE., reading online, the differences are, no adjustable trigger, no monopod, and some kind of difference in the outer barrel, and 1 rail section instead of 3.
My first sniper is an SSG 24 that I bought cuz I was new to airsoft and had zero teching experience and wanted something I could just go out and play with outta the box, but now I am ready to craft a gun tailored to my preferences and the Silverback seamed like a good way to go. My question is, is there a real performance or quality related reason I should not have gotten the Sport, VS the covert? Thanks for your time and knowledge!

No, not unless you care about the things you already know aren't included. You can also always get a diff rail and outer barrel and convert it to a covert style model.

A shorter inner barrel will benefit you more for joule creep and air brake usage, but the volume in the SRS cylinder is so high the latter is never really an issue.

I have a covert, and I regret not getting the sport.
I removed the monopod, never used it so it's dead weight.
Sport inner barrel is just as stable as the covert, sport comes with 3 spacers if i recall correctly.
Only use one rail for a foregrip.

Plus, you don't need an adapter to moukt silverbacks dummy silencer, which look sick imo. (You do however need an adapter if you want to mount a normal 14mm ccw silencer).
Plus (again) you'll have higher J with the longer barrel, or, easier bolt pull for same J compared to the covert.

Right now Redwolf is selling them at some insane killer prices, I would suggest you to give Redwolf a visit first and see how the price compares.

As for the quality differences, it's something that has been repeated a thousand of times, but here we go.

Sport:
- 20" (509mm) bull barrel is internally hollow and uses barrel spacers to fix the inner barrel in place
- Uses a one stage trigger (aka a single piece) but trigger box design is identical to other SRS variants
- No monopod in the stock
- Has an inferior stock end piece (rigid and short, not a deal killer but does not feel comfortable)

Covert:
- 18" (455mm) barrel which supports the inner barrel all the way, nice and tight
- two stage adjustable trigger piece
- has a monopod

For a starting rifle the Sport is definitely good - the monopod is useless for 99% of the time (is only useful if it's a real steel), trigger piece difference is not important, and outer barrel, while tempting, isn't that different in practice either.

The only real issue is the rubber stock piece which can also be individually bought and end up cheaper than the Covert.

Funny you mentioned the barrel since I converted my outer from a sport to a covert exactly because of mounting issues…… lel
Since I am using a Crazy Jet, using that .303 silencer actually makes the gun more audible by giving a can opening "pop" noise, so the silencer isn't exactly useful either and makes the rifle uneccesarily long

I got the sport version as well because it was cheaper and the extras never really made sense to me. The gun is already quiet as it is (can't hear anything besides the BB flying by within 35 feet of the gun stock) so honestly unless you are going complete mouse fart silence the sport version is more than enough. I would recommend getting the VMP however and just upgrading to the air break cap so that way you can offset the cylinder volume by messing more with the spring and piston weight, and it will come in cheaper than the WASP system as well.

I tech on my cousins SSG and I can tell you the guns are night and day difference, but you definitely need to watch the SRS because there are more pieces to the puzzle and you essentially have to put that puzzle together yourself. The hop up is probably going to be where you spend about 90% of your time trying to min max it to make it that much better.
