I've never been find of Novritsch as a brand, for whatever reason. I used to watch him a bit when I was younger, but it seems that most of his videos today focus on marketing his products, and often seem "faker" in value. When he started releasing his own line of products, they felt lackluster. The SSG-24, being over $500 for a rifle that was essentially a modify MOD-24, felt like a rip-off. But as Novritsch the brand has grown, it seems that he is truly branching out into more innovative development. His new SSX-303 seems especially innovative, as it is an attempt at a product that, previous to now, has not had any good representation in the airsoft market. Sure, there are conversion kits available for MK-23s, but most of them are plastic and 3d printed, being nothing of real aesthetic appeal. That being said, the idea of a lightweight, maneuverable, quiet, and efficient gas powered sniper rifle is extremely appealing. I'm thinking that I just might have to sign up for the preorder. Any other thoughts on this rifle? I know that it's been in the works for many months now, but there is little hands in testing.
