No, I don't believe you can consistently cock neither of those, but if you change the spring to m100-m120 you should be able to do it, it's not a hard job to change a spring from a vsr clone, all you need to do is to take 2 screws from bottom, pull spring guide stopper down, pull the cylinder out, unscrew the cylinder head and change the spring.

If you plan on shooting more than 200ft, you'll need to upgrade your rifle which can cost quite a bit at your age (may have to use birthday/christmas money).

But, at a young age the TK Twist barrel would probably be a good set up as it requires fps around the 350 mark.

Hope I helped.

I agree, do a low FPS set-up with a TK Twist Barrel. You'll be able to cock the rifle and usually most fields have age limits for snipers, which shouldn't be a problem with a low FPS set-up. As you get older, you could upgrade the rifle ;)

I concur about the low fps rifle, especialy at your age, you'll learn the craft quicker than if you rely on huge fps and long range contacts.... fact!!

You might even struggle to cock a 120 spring though, as I know my 11 1/2 year old son and a team mates 12 1/2 year old son cant cock my 350fps VSR, although I do have a cut 150 spring in that :-/

Yes, starting with a weaker rifle is a good idea. It will also mean your sears wont wear down as easily and you wont need to replace them very soon.
Honestly, a rifle at around 320fps with a TK Twist barrel and heavy ammo will do you perfectly.
Maybe next time you're airsofting and someone has a rifle, see if you can cock it?
