Hi everyone, I have a UTG L96 and a ghillie suit and I own a sniper with like 10 clips....


... Just kidding!

I'm Gunny87, the name is Kevin, and I also frequently visit and contribute on ASF, MIA, and a few other forums! I'd like to say hello to my MIA bretheren and also to everyone else here!

There seems to be a lot of great content on this forum dealing with the lethal art of being a sniper. And I figured I would join and learn a little more about it.

Figured I would join because I've always prefered playing the role, not soo much in using a bolt action, and wearing a ghillie suit in the traditional sense, but in how I play. Which is usually taking careful consideration of my surroundings and finding the most ideal spot for concealment, range, and cover.

I also usually prefer to stay in cover longer and ambush people rather than run around alot. I've even stayed in some spots during games for up to an hour or longer (if my location wasn't compromised) just to get a nice kill or two.

I've owned a TM VSR-10, and a KJW M700 in the past, but seem to prefer using a DMR. Personally I always favored having that quick follow up shot that an AEG DMR can provide.

I know some of you might say well "one shot-one kill" kind of thing that bolt actions may provide, but for playing airsoft we don't have that luxury that a real steel rifle can provide, although it's more than possible and I'm sure some of you really good snipers can do it!

Anyways I've been in the sport off and on since like 99 when I was a wee little lad and got my first springer, but I'm amazed how the sport has progressed over that last decade.

Well figured that's about enough, hope to have the opportunity to be able to contribute as well as absorbing a lot of the information many of you have provided and continue to provide on here!

Gunny

I own a utg l96, but hey I love the sense of humor. :) Glad to have you on the forums. You seem like the modest type who is eager to learn some things here. I know I have.

Haha I meant no harm against any UTG L96 users! Actually they are great base platforms. I even considered buying the UTG Shadow OPS L96 at one point for a build...

Thank you for the welcome! Yeah I'm an easygoing guy and enjoy just discussing airsoft with anyone.

I'm running with a fully upgraded Tokyo Marui Steyr Aug.



The black one in the middle.

Upgrades are...

- King Arms Phantom Kit.
- harris bipod
- Guarder M120
- Systema Metal Bushings.
- Systema Precision Shim Set.
- Guarder Infinite Torque-Up Gear Set.
- G&P High performance Metal Hop-Up.
- Guarder Infinite Torque-Up Magnum Short Type.
- Systema PolyCarb Area 1000 Piston Head.
- Systema New Version Polycarbonate Piston.
- Guarder Stanless Steel Cylinder Header.
- KM Teflon Cylinder for 550+ inner barrel.
- Systema 650mm 6.04 Inner Barrel.

When I bought it, it had a PDI 260% spring and was shooting just over 500fps, but I had it downgraded to a 120, and it only shoots 400fps, but it has an effective range of probably a little over 250ft and can hit a man size target 4 out of 5 shots with .30's.

I love it because it's pretty light and is pretty compact for the range and accuracy it gets

Nice collection man.

Been trying to get my hands on a nice PSG-1 for a while now... but can't seem to find one that will be around the same price as the M4 I am trying to sell.

If you have any questions or anything just ask, after the search of course.

Always great to have new blood on the forums.

Thanks! Yeah actually, pending a sale my PSG-1 will no longer be mine possibly as of today... :(

Why would you want to sell the PSG when most of us here would sell our granny to get hold of one? :-/
Haha honestly I really don't want to sell it and I don't have to, but I'm looking to purchase a motorcycle in a month or two and yeah while I love my PSG-1, it's basically a wall hanger at this point. And any money that I can put toward the purchase of a bike would help!
