Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum. I've been into the sport for about 2 and a half years now, and I'm finally leaning into the sniper role. Now I'm looking for my first airsoft sniper rifle.

I want something on a budget, that is decent externally, and although being upgrade-able, I need it to perform decently out of the box, as I'm not planning to upgrade everything right from the beginning.
I like both M24 and L96 platforms (M40 too, but I haven't found anything interesting), and my options right now are, as mentioned in the title, JG BAR 10 (non G spec) and Well mb08.

The mb08 I have found (in Taiwangun.com - https://www.taiwangun.com/en/spring/mb08-olive-well ) appears to be pre-upgraded internally, with some sort of reinforced set, that can make it withstand a stronger spring. I looked that up a little and found it (in Gunfire.com - https://gunfire.com/en/products/mb08a-upv-sniper-rifle-replica-1152204755.html ) mentioned as Well MB08A UPV, which is said to be "equipped with reinforced inner parts made of metal: piston, spring guide and trigger set".

The reason I mentioned the specs of this mb08 version, is because I've read reviews about the normal version having crappy/total junk internals, which bothers me since I don't plan on upgrading right on, as I said. Hence the JG Bar 10 alternative.

I've researched both guns and seen that there are plenty of upgrades on the market for either, and that each can make a good base. However, which of these can perform the best or at least decently out of the box? I'll be glad to read your thoughts and suggestions.

This is definitely the best VSR-10 base imo, very durable, and it's just nice overall.
I will suggest a couple upgrades anyways though, but nothing to expensive.
9Ball soft bucking

PTFE grease

Good BBs

When you first get the gun, remove the trigger unit, cylinder, hop chamber, barrel, and receiver.
Proceed to disassemble the cylinder, hop chamber, and then clean them with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel,
Then clean the barrel, install that bucking or the old one, make more barrel spacers out of tape, and re-grease the cylinder internals with some of that PTFE grease.
After all of that, reassemble, and do little diy mods here and there.
That gun should last for at least 10,000 shots as mine lasted for 13,000 as well as 900 on a MUCH tougher spring.
If something happens, come back here and you will probably have the thing fixed in no time.

Thanks for the detailed reply, SiliconeSword, but unfortunately I cannot order from Evike since I'm based in the EU and the import laws forbid such parcels. I can order from shops inside the EU, and my best options are 1) Taiwangun and 2) Gunfire. But I appreciate the modding tips, those may come in handy !

You can most definitely find those parts and that gun where you are, the gun is probably less on taiwangun come to think of it, never ordered from them though, they don't ship to America lol
