best out of the box sniper rifle

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good Springer sniper rifle that's great out if the box. No need to upgrade, just slap on a scope.

 

Or am I asking the impossible?

From what I've heard the best out of box is the TM VSR G-Spec. They're the best out of box however require further upgrades for their best performance. UTJ has one and I believe he can help you with what to buy if you decide to go down the TM route.

Probably asking the impossible,especially for a springer. TM Gspec is good out of the box but only in a country with the 1J limit- Upgrades are needed to bring it up to snuff for use in the UK,for example the hop up does not really like anything heavier than .28s without mods. And the FPS is very low,280 on .20s stock but it's pretty consistant. The low FPS really 'kicks in' when you use .30s or up,it's noticeably worse than with .28s and added to that the stock hop does not lift .30s well past 30m.

 

Another thing,on ALL VSRs and clones is that the stock sear set and piston WILL grenade themselves. It's only a matter of time when. You need to get a new steel sear set and piston with a steel catch for reliable use up to a 120 spring. With a 130 and up bolt pull & return will feel bad with the stock sears and reliability is out the window so you need to cough up for a 90 degree mech and piston.

 

Another thins is that as per usual for TM,prices are inflated outside of Japan,but the VSR 10 pro is often reasonably priced (ProAirsoftSupplies have them for 170 quid which is okay,only 70 quid more than the price w/ out shipping from Echigoya)

 

Chinese clones like the JG BAR 10 which is quite good are hard to come by in the UK and in other shops sell like hotcakes so they are wee bit iffy to get (used market has plenty)

 

If you want a good 'OOTB' springer try find a good pre upgraded one for sale,stock guns always need some work to be usable.

 

If you want a good OOTB usable sniper weapon than the RealSword SVD is your best bet. it could also be better but it's one of if not the best out of the box AEG DMRs,in that it actually performs to meet the standards of a DMR. But,it's VERY expensive because it's full steel and most of it's CNC to boot.
