I am a total newbie airsoft sniper. Been playing for a couple years, but this is my first sniper rifle. (aside from a UTG....but that doesnt count)

I recently got a Bar-10 in a trade, loving it so far. The guy says he had the following installed:

-laylax 6.03x430mm inner tightbore barrel
-laylax barrel spacers
-nineball bucking
-PDI piston sear
-PDI set pin
-PDI trigger sear
-PDI BaRiKaRu compo piston
-PDI 9mm spring guide
-PDI 140% spring

Being a total newbie to airsoft sniper rifles, and almost a total newbie to internals in general, I am not even sure what all of that does.

After sighting in the rifle to the best of my ability, I hit a regular sized cereal box at ~170 feet 2/4 times. Is that decent performance for an airsoft rifle? The two off shots hit close enough that a 2-3 inch increase in the size of the box in each direction would have made it 4/4, most likely.

This was with G&G .28s. Would using better BBs allow me to make that shot consistently? Would that be decent performance for my rifle? I think I want to try out BB King .32s next.....

I would assume the performance of my rifle being "good" is entirely relative to the performance of everyone else's guns that I am playing with. How much more effective range should I be having over them to have a "good" rifle? Obviously one could not give a set number, but an idea, example, or educated guess would be awesome.

Any info for a newbie airsoft sniper is welcome here as well.


Oh, and here is a picture of my new rifle.

Congrats on the new rifle!
Yes that is great performance, but try to get some Bioval BBBmax's or some madbull heavyweights.
Yes they will increase accuracy and consistency.
