Push bolt With the push bolt version, the spring is compressed while pushing the bolt forward. This version uses a steel cylinder, a monolythic steel bolt head, an aluminium piston with a silent AEG piston head (with thrust bearing) and a steel piston end. This push forward bolt uses AEG springs (with a compressed length strictly inferior to 46mm and an inside diameter strictly superior to 11mm), and the air volume is 28 cc. Customers can request bellow 2 or bellow 1 Joule muzzle kinetic energy. This version allows a quick and realistic disassembly of the bolt from the receiver.

Pull bolt With the pull bolt version, the spring is compressed while pulling the bolt backward. This version uses a steel cylinder, a monolythic steel bolt head, an aluminium piston with a silent piston head and a steel piston end. This pull back bolt uses APS 13 mm springs, and the air volume is 41 cc. Customers can request bellow 2 or bellow 1 Joule muzzle kinetic energy.

The prices vary so much from country to country and retailer to retailer that there's not a lot of point.

But...the Sport is the budget option.

Difference...outer barrel requires spacers for the inner barrel and it has no monopod.

Crazy Barrel Length

The are several barrel lengths. Does buying the longest one affect accuracy or is it just personal preference/looks?

For those of you looking at purchasing one of these, I highly suggest you do not. They look cool but they are definitely not user friendly and they are not a great sniper rifle.
I was looking at purchasing one until I tried a friends one a month ago and it was not a great rifle. The bolt handle when pulled back is extra close to your shoulder making it feel awkward. It was very heavy. Also, the worst thing was that you could not change the mags with one hand. It is amazing how ridiculous the mag change is. Also, the mag is ridiculously massive and this limits how many you can carry.
The person who owned the gun liked it for looks but he admitted that it does have a lot of design flaws.
So if you want a cool wall hanger, then get one of these. Otherwise try another rifle.

So actually, if i'm right, you only suggest/promote the VSR-10?

Currently the VSR10 is still the best sniper platform. I have owned many rifles.
L96's, SSG and the new Action Army T10 are all good too but they are heavier than the vsr.

The barrel length will only affect the maximum velocity you can reach, but the shortest one already fits a 420mm inner barrel which is plenty.

To 1tonne's point though, those are all quirks of it being a bullpup sniper rifle. Anyone that is purchasing this platform should be well aware of the odd ergonomics before buying it. I think the point I agree with the most is the awkward mag change. I didn't like how far back the button was, and though my fingers were long enough to reload with a single hand, it's not comfortable. I also only used the platform with the mancraft kit inside of it (I did two installs for a few friends of mine) so the bolt cycle was maybe an inch and I never really had problems with pulling the bolt back so far. As far as weight, I didn't find it too bad, 3kg isn't that heavy in my opinion (I've only used the short one).

To me, the biggest appeal to the gun is that it's compact (again, talking about the short version). Even with a mock suppressor on it, it's short. But to those of you who are going with the spring version, I hope you are comfortable with taking the gun off of your shoulder and racking it braced against your hip or something. I really don't think the gun itself is as bad as 1tonne is making it out to sound. The performance can be raised up to point, just be ready to deal with some of the gun's quirks... Now if you're talking price vs performance, well then this gun isn't going to match up so well. It already costs more than an upgraded vsr :P

Not everybody cares about the weight of a sniper. Like you pointed out earlier, the SSG is heavier than the VSR, so are more snipers aswell. But what is the point in having a sniper that is light? For that tiny bit of speed you gain by having a lighter sniper? It is simply just not worth it.

Even though we are talking about a little bit of weight difference, weight should not hold you back to buy a gun.

Kind of offtopic: for me it does. For example, when an E&L is heavier than the real deal, I will surely buy a CYMA.

For anyone else who wanted to know cylinder-barrel ratios of the different models:

16" 420mmx6.05mm 12.07cc Push=2.32x Pull=3.4x
20" 510mmx6.05mm 14.66cc Push=1.91x Pull=2.8x
22" 578mmx6.05mm 16.62cc Push=1.68x Pull=2.47x
26" 680mmx6.05mm 19.55cc Push=1.43x Pull=2.1x

I used 28cc volume for push bolt (from the entry post) and 41cc for pull bolt (from the specs page of silverback)
