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 :)

Ummm... are you hunting squirrels or something?

Or are you just plinking.
If your just plinking, I would get a gas pistol as it will be a lot more fun.

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).
