New Sniper and Rifle

Hey guys!

Im new to the sniper spot on a team and im trying to learn as much as I can. I read through all the tips players have posted on these forums and they helped a lot! If anyone has any tips (tactics, ghillie crafting, ect.) for a new sniper please let me know by a post or pm!

Im currently using our teams Mauser SR Pro Tactical rifle, the bucking on it was torn in half before I had a chance to use it, so its a little hard for me to take full advantage of the pros that come with being a sniper. So im forced to keep my G36C on me when a situation turns really bad.

Now to the reason Im making this post in this section.
Im looking into buying my own sniper rifle and I have done a ton of research, but due to the fact im new to these types of guns I have probally over looked something. My budget is roughly $200. I plan on spending $100 on the rifle and $100 on the upgrades.

Heres what Ive came up with:
JG BAR-10 w/Bi-Pod
$110 Sniper-JG-BAR10-Std
I really like the look of this rifle, the reviews and upgrades for this gun seem outstanding!

VSR 10 Angel Custom Piston & Trigger Sear Set
$40 AC-VSR-01
VSR 10 Angel Custom Spring Guide*
$25 AC-VSR-02
VSR 10 Angel Custom Adv Piston*
$45 AC-VSR-10
VSR 10 Angel Custom SP170 spring (480-550)*
$15 AC-VSR-SP170

*I may swap out the spring guide, piston, and spring for this Angel Custom tune up kit to cut down the price. (so my wife dosent kill me)
VSR 10 Angeul Custom SP150 Tune Up Kit
$50 AC-VSR10-KIT01

Other variations of inital upgrades include a sear set, spring, tightbore barrel, and bucking.
Im thinking of using 0.36 BBs for long range, and it will keep my fps down. (Our teams field is 500 fps limit for sniper rifles)

Any suggestions please let me know!

Alright man, you have convinced me lol. You have been more than helpful with everything and I can't thank you enough.

There is one thing I'm not fully grasping, the RHop. I've read a lot about it and I have watched plenty of videos, I see how it works and how to install it but what material is everyone making these fitted pieces out of? Until I get a 100% confidence in installing a R Hop correctly, I'll just have to stick with a regular hop up bucking with an open window.

As for the barrel, the length is 430mm I believe. It's gonna be a 6.03, yet I have not decided on a brand, I'm still searching around for a decent price.

I won't be able to get all the upgrades I want at once, I'm still holding out for a ztrig set and setting up a RHop. But I'll just have something to look forward too!
For the barrel get a prommy, nineball, or laylax 6.03. Those barrels all come out of the same factpry and are exactly the same. They also have a decent price. For the r-hop, you don't make it, you buy it from hunterseeker armories (find it at the bottom of the page on Cheese's website). I was the same way about it how I wouldn't get the r-hop until I knew absolutely everything about it. One thing you will need to do if you get it is get a new nub for your hopup arm. The reason being you need to distribute all of the pressure from the arm evenly along the r-hop patch. I have been using nerf dart foam as wide as the arm and as long as the patch centered directly over the patch. You could also get the specialized m-nub from hunterseeker armories, but it does the same thing as nerf dart foam.

Alright, well that RHop Im still going to learn more about. Now I know I dont have to make that piece it makes things a lot easier. But all the information you gave me helps, and from the looks of the RHop it can really increase accuracy much more than a regular bucking. For now im just gonna stick with the Nine Ball Bucking and Laylax 6.03 430mm barrel for some great accuracy.
Together plus shipping on those is gonna cost $102.43 from Redwolfairsoft.
By the way, that Laylax barrel is tough to find, its out of stock everywhere!! Luckily Redwolf had it in stock and slightly cheaper. =]

Other than that from Evike im grabbing the JG Bar-10 plus bi-pod($140), an extra magazine ($8), a sweet flash hider ($38), some 0.28g BBs ($10), and shipping ($21). Got my 20% off coupon in there (code is BIGGEREVIKE), it makes the total $179.03.

So all in all I spent $281.46 which is very close to what I was shooting for.
I was going to buy an Angel Custom Tune Up Kit, but I think I will go ahead and buy the more expensive better brand parts one at a time so I know the quality will be the best.
