Hello. I'm new to airsoft. I own a bunch of the budget low end pistols/rifles. I'm looking specifically for a sniper rifle that can hit the bullseye consistently at 30-40 feet (1 inch groupings) which is the usual range I'll be shooting at. Ideally one that could have a 1-3 inch spread at 100 feet for when I have a chance to shoot longer range. Id like to stay around the 100 dollar range but up to 200 is fine. If there's something that fits my description and costs more please tell me about that One and recommend a cheaper version. One that is easy to replace parts on and has readily available replacement parts is a must for when things inevitably wear out. .25 gram bbs would be great but overall weight of bbs is the least of my concern. Accuracy first. Easy to work on for maintenance second. And if possible something I can order on amazon because I know they'll reimburse me if it's a lemon. I look forward to hearing from you guys because I know this hobby gets deep and I know I've only scratched the surface and don't want to buy a gun that wont for my needs. Thanks in advance :)

The Action Army T11 is pretty good, but for this kind of thing you just want a $50 Daisy 880 pellet gun.
Pellets and rifling will always be more accurate than airsoft BBs, so you'd better go for that.

Thanks i have TONS of bb/pellet guns. I need a airsoft rifle. Neighbors/cops don't care about those. I'll check out T11. Thank you.

The Novritsch SSG10 is a great beginner choice, although it’s $300 new. Worth the extra money IMO.

I have talked to the Fox Airsoft team, and they highly recommend the Action Army, so that may be something work looking into.

You won’t be able to hit a small bullseye constantly, but you should get pretty dang close. ;)

You could buy a Diana chaser pellet pistol that has a really good suppressor if you want to be quiet and under $100.
Airsoft will require lots of work to get even near that, as I am still struggling with a couple guns.

Look into the CYMA701C, insane price value for the gun, if you do not plan to play and instead just shoot targets.

I guess you could get any old bolt action rifle that's VSR/APS-2 compatible, but you will need to fix it sooner or later.

But why on earth use an airsoft gun for target shooting if you don't plan to actually play the game?
Like I said before, airsoft will absolutely NEVER beat a pellet gun as they were designed to be shot at people without seriously injuring the person, therefore they have many severe drawbacks.
And, the majority of airsoft guns are as loud or louder than a C02 or air powered pellet gun with a diy or purchased suppressor, so your whole neighbor thing doesn't really make sense.
Also, don't shoot at animals unless you know you can instantly kill them with one shot, as that is quite cruel to not do that, if that was your intent.

Also, in many areas it is illegal to not kill animals like foxes, squirrels or rats instantly (when killing/hunting them that is).

Action Army T11, A&K m24, or CYMA VSR-10 (or any VSR-10 for that matter)

I am not giving you Amazon links as Amazon is pretty shit for airsoft guns. (Their policies concerning airsoft guns are pretty ass, and you will likely NOT get a refund and you have to pay restocking fees usually. I should know, dealt with that 7 times.) Their selection is pretty bad too.

I HIGHLY doubt that, cops care way more about airsoft guns, as they look like the real thing. Most people are too stupid to look for the orange tip, and most people tend to remove those anyway.

Yes, are you going to be using this for hunting? Or just target practice?

So first, thank you to the people who provided links. Now to answer several things. First at no point did I say i was hunting or shooting animals with these. Must have missed the i have TONS of pellet/by guns part. I would use those of that was my intention. Also I know the neighbors i have and the cops in my area care less about airsoft then they do pellet guns. Much like I know the laws regarding both in my area. So please don't jump to uneducated assumptions. These will mainly be used for plinking and target practice. Thank you to the people who took the question at face value and provided suggestions of rifled to get for my intended use:)

And I went with the krytac trident mk II spr. Seems like it will be usable for multiple roles for me. Thanks again.
