I use real steel scope, mainly because I want a parallax free lens. I use a Vortex because of the life time warranty – I still use scope protectors, but the no question asked life time warranty gives me a lot of peace of mind. You do pay a premium for it ($130 to way too much).
I was told utg scope (~$80 to $100) is a good budget real steel scope, but I never had personal experience.
If you want to go lower on the budget scope since you're new, Pinty (~$30 to $50). It is my belief that one of their scope is the OEM one that Novritsch sells and used in his earlier years. Perhaps someone can confirm this?
I have several JG vsr10 fully upgraded and I picked up a ssg10 in the Black Friday sale, the SSG10 should s pretty good out of the box, just going to improve it a bit, I did buy it really for the parts.I have shot a few SSG 24 and find the vsr all together better in weight, mag capacity if using AA mags and the plethora of upgrades available
That’s really nothing. Only issue with an improper stock for airsoft I feel is looking through your optic. Adjustable stock is a cool feature but just move your scope if needed. Thousands of people use a standard vsr so in that sense you’ll be fine!
I'd say SSG10. It's essentially a VSR so unless you are already well versed in sniping or just wanted an M24 for whatever reason, the SSG10 is both cheaper and easier to acquire (Novritsch seems to have stopped buying 24 stock for now).
Be beware of quality issues however as that still seems to be a reoccurring issue here and there.
