I have recently been looking into airgun target shooting competitions.

I read through the rules an apparently they allow 4-6mm spring and shoot at targets with a 1mm wide dot for the 10 ring.

If anyone has any info on the events or recommendations for a gas rifle and why I would appreciate it.

I'm thinking tanaka right now, but that is not set in stone. I am looking for accuracy not range. My APS2SV I use on the field would work, but I like the excuse to build another sniper, as well as wanting a gas rifle.

Thanks in advance,
Hackett

What Mosin meant to say was that you are looking to build a sniper rifle, not a sniper. Which is of course, a person.

Sounds interesting, I would think you would want something very, very consistent. So a gas rifle seems out of reach. You would also like something that is comfortable when shooting, so choose a rifle with a stock that you like the hold of.

Are these hosted by the NRA?

Ive herd of some RS snipers using .177 BB guns and the plastic army men to practice long range shooting, never heard of a competition with paper though. Sounds cool. Does anyone here know what the ratio of target, to BB size, to range is for airsoft? I would really like to do something like this with airsoft.

good luck with the gun

Yeah they are hosted by the NRA. A regulated gas system can be relatively consistant if the temps are consistant. wereas most of these competitions are indoors it shouldn't be a problem. I just don't want to use my field gun for this. I know this is a sniper forum so this may be a little seperate from this, but remember Charles Hathcock II started off as a marine corp long range target shooter champ before there were military trained snipers. And the term sniping comes from the challenging sport of snipe shooting.
And by all means understand I swear by spring power on the field.

Does anyone have any experience or advice about their gas rifles as far as accuracy/upgrades for such? Well, besides the obvious tightbore and what not.

My goal is to build a gun that can shoot a US Quarter at 100 feet.

I bet if you where able to get an HPA rig to fit on a Star AW338, then you would probably have one of the best shooters around, I know little on gas rifles, and the Star is no exception. So I would go have a look at Arnies, and ASCUK for more knowledgeable people.

yea hpa will probably be the best,
Gas guns really are verrryy inconsistent. I had a fully upgraded tanaka m24 and had trouble with consistent shots, often times different shots being 10 fps lower or higher. There are so many factors that i would have to get into that affect gas guns that i really dont have the time right now. Basically lets just say i love spring guns for the consistency and accuracy, but if u must go with a gas gun, rig it on hpa. You can rig a kjw m700 on hpa, and upgrade it with various other parts for under $500 and have it amazingly accurate and consistent. I would never want this in the field though, it would be a pain carrying around that tank when crawling.

Well I can do a regulated system off of the 3oz. CO2 bottles so I'm not worried about the FPS so much as the pin point consistant accuracy.

Thanks for all the info thus far everyone!

Thanks Oakey! I was just letting everyone know wher emy phocus was. And I am still undecided on what platform to start from. I am thinking the tanaka M700 pre-ban for this task!
