The JG Bar 10s are always raved about. Not sure about the other ones

My friend has the UTG L96 and it's pretty good. It's not really accurate enough to use it over an AEG. The power is good though.

Honestly, airsoft snipers are fun, but unless you upgrade them a lot, they are useless. (Heck, most AEGs with TB barrels could still get the same range as a sniper)

I agree with Stealth.

For me the airsoft "Sniper" is best served by an AEG.

I've written my opinions on this issue in detail here:

In a nutshell, my thoughts are that the bolt action sniper is only superior from a sound perspective.

Its range and accuracy can be matched by virtually any upgraded AEG and of course the AEG can provide superior ROF.

Given the limited (relatively speaking) range of airsoft, ROF MAY be more valuable a tool to have than stealth.

That said, if you've got to have the bolt action, nothing will scratch that itch other than the bolt action Wink

Well L96 = Decent Performer, but budget a Tight Bore (TB) barrel into the mix.

Good luck!

I agree with everyone. I think that an AEG will be the best sniper. I have the JG Bar 10 and I'm not impressed. I think something is messed up with my hop-up so the accuracy is horrible. The only real reason I would ever get a springer is if you live in a cold environment. Last winter, at a game, everybody's AEG's weren't working because it was too cold out. So, springers still worked so I got the sniper. Even if it was accurate, I would still prefer an AEG with a nice scope.
