Wow... You really showed my compliment in a whole new light XD

It is a fantastic looking gun

 

Haha, thanks. Dont mind Trigger, he's kinda prissy when it comes to terminology (as am I, TBH :) )

Well, Taring has done an amazing job on my VSR; in fact, I think its brilliant.

Usually I would just hit 'like' and move on but damn that is beautiful, a work of art.

Nice one.

First of all it's sniper RIFLE.

It's actually a Bolt Action Rifle. If you are going to be pedantic, at least be accurate.

Eh? The important distinction is that 'sniper' is - and always has been - a role and isn't just restricted to a single type of gun. I've certainly seen posts where it gets confusing as to which people are actually referring to (even with the correct context). Call it a bolt action rifle, a rifle, a sniper rifle, a boomstick - whatever takes your fancy. Just don't call them both 'snipers' because that makes zero sense.

 

Pedantic would be someone saying 'oh actually it's a carbine and not a full-length rifle, so don't call it a rifle'. Correcting genuinely non-distinctive COD-talk like using 'sniper' as two vastly different nouns? That's not pedantic.

 

You'd look at me as though I was god damn retarded if I called my M249 'support'.

Actually I wasn't being pedantic I was just correcting the term from sniper which is the term for a human specialist who uses such a weapon.

Sniper rifle is an excepted term for that style of rifle. Look what comes up when you google TM VSR.

My post was meant in a joking fashion though where most of yours are just you trying to come off superior.

The only thing that has been burned is your baby photographs after they frightened the other kids.

Still needs trademarks engraving, a coat of paint and a scoutlight to replace the WML, but it's coming along :)

 

Back on topic, thank you :)

Looking good!

why tape the pistol grip?

 

Partly just to see how it looked and Its a fabric tape so ofers a extra grippy and slightly cushioned feel to the grips. I do wear gloves so probably makes the whole excercise pointless :P

Well, I haven't even started my VSR build yet (only ordering pieces so far) and it's already won a competition! 2nd place in a sniper (role) rifle looks competition. Feel free to check it out.

Jeez... In a good or bad way? (I won't judge, I know wood stocks aren't everyone's cuppa)

Good way! How's the weight on the VSR now? Don't suppose it'd weigh much more than the plastic stock

Or should it be a BASR, Bolt Action Sniper Rifle, as it is bolt action (obviously) and also fulfilling the sniper rifle role? :P

No clue. I haven't gotten it yet (and the gun itself is still in customs). The stock was attempted for delivery today, but I'm not home until Friday night, so I'll get it Monday.

To be really pedantic;

As the barrels on airsoft guns aren't rifled, can they really be classed as Rifles at all?

Most professional marksmen just call them "longs" and most will associate that their sniping role is an extension of their skill set. They are still infantry when things turn south.

 

Have a read of the book sniper one, it's about a British team of riflemen in Iraq, it's a great read and will break down some preconceptions of modern sniping compared to the ww2 version of sniping Hollywood and COD portrays.
