I am looking for a "budget" sniper rifle. I think I have narrowed down the choides to the UTG L96, or the Echo-1 M28. The UTG uses VSR parts, while the E1 uses APS2, parts(mostly). Which would be the bigger bang for the buck, both in stock form, and also full blown upgrade form. I am open to suggestions that are not those too. My main reason for chooding the L96 is because it has a good upgrade selection, and my main reason for choosing the M28 it because it does not look as cumbersome when sneaking through woods. I would like a US armed forces gun, because it fits my gear loadout. also, if i get the M28, what would be cost effective Upgrades? I have looked on Evike, and have seen cylinder, piston, and spring kits. I do know that the L96 can use aftermarket trigger mechs, and the E1 cannot.

The Type 96 uses APS2 parts, not VSR. Go with the Type 96 because it can be made into a pretty good shooter without really doing much to it in regards of upgrades. Mainly just a barrel, bucking, and hop-up unit will do it for that rifle.

The M28 has a crappy trigger unit that is proprietary, I think.

If you're wanting a US rifle, a VSR-10 would probably be the closest spring rifle that would work.

Here are some upgrades that i would do to the M28. I really like the look of the rifle. I wonder if it can use(with persuasion) a VSR-10 Trigger? Hinit,Hint.

For the clylinder, should I get 300% or 500% powerup? I want to run 450FPS with .40-.43 (YES, I know about and respect MED's)

Also, should I get a hard or soft bucking?
