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.
