Hey guys, my name is Trent, I'm 13 years old, and I'm new to both airsoft and sniping!

I started playing about a month ago after my cousin gave me his Sig P226 because he was heading off to Basic Training and he wanted to give away all of his airsoft guns. (BTW, he finished a couple weeks ago and they had a giant pillow fight on base :p)

Right now I have a G&G GR-15 Raider, but I felt it lacking range, so tomorrow I'm going to some guys house and buying his CA SR25 for a great deal. Also I got my Sig as I just said.

I use Woodland Marine Marpat with just a black backpack to carry mags, speed loaders, and some ammo.

I'm from California and I'm happy one of my friends didn't bring me into paintball! :p

P.S. I'm proud that I don't need my parents to buy all my gear for me, I've saved up and worked. :D

Welcome to the forum. Saving up is the best way to go. Although it's also why I have a tiny budget. Be sure to read all the stickies because a lot of them have very good info on being an airsoft sniper. By the way, you said you felt your gun id lacking range. The max range you will probably ever get with an airsoft gun is a little over 300ft for your level of airsoft tech, so don't go thinking you will have much of a range advantage over other players. It's not like real life sniping where we have a ludacris amoun of range compared to other guns. We learn to do without long range, but we are always looking for ways to increase it anyway.

Well, I got my SR25 today, but I'm still waiting for the battery to charge up. And Masterjuggler, what I meant by lacking range is that my GR-15 is even lacking range for an airsoft gun, I know that I won't be going super long range.

Anyway, I broke the bipod that I got with it already because I thought I just had to force the legs... I must've accidentally pushed the little button on one of them when I closed it so when I tried the other, I snapped the leg...

Anyway, thanks for the greetings guys!

Went on a bit of a rant before LOL, sorry. Well how much range do you get with your gr15?

No idea the range, but it only shoots 315 fps :/ Basically it's cqb now.

In other words, the SR25 is wonderful, but I want to get it chronoed, maybe it's because I've never shot anything like it, but I'm not sure if it's really 430 fps. It does have much more power that the gr15 though, so I'm happy.
(It also looks amazing...)

No upgrade plans yet, apparently the piston has been beefed up though and the gears have been replaced from the guy who sold me the gun, and also, I just don't need anything right now. I am going to probably add some camo wrap tape type thing though and see how it looks.

I'll try to get some pics for you too!

I'm not sure what you've seen on other forums, but fps does not equate to accuracy in any way shape or form. I've actually been considering bringing my bar10 down to 350fps. That 315fps you have with your gr25 will get you exactly the same accuracy and range you would get if you were shotting 600fps. The only thing it affects is hoe fast the bb gets to your target. The thing that matters most when trying to get better accuracy is hopup. The more stable your hopup is, the better range and accuracy you will get. --rant over

However doesn't the FPS effect how fast the round will drop? Thats probably the biggest problem when I say that the GR-15 is inaccurate. I suppose that was the wrong choice of words, but yes, it does need things like a tight-bore barrel and a new hop-up.
