Things I liked:This is by far, the best sniper rifle i've owned. I bought it to replace my B A R 10, & have been 110% satisfied with it. the stock is plastic, but it's none of the cheap crossman plastic you see... it's a good quality material. It's a bit on the heavy side (to run & gun with, that is), & the bipod wobbles a bit (not enough to affect accuracy though!!) the bolt is smooth, some poeple complain of it being tough to pull, well i'm quite satisfied with it!
Things I would have changed:The bipod wobble. a simple upgrade form stock will change that. Hop-Up placement, it needs pre adjustment, as it's a hassle to access while playing -I bought a package deal, with a 4x40 scope- The scope took me a good hour & a half to zero (that's why accuracy got a 4/5)
What others should know:This is one of the best -if not the #1- Sniper rifle's out there, for it's price!!

Things I liked:Size & feel.
Things I would have changed:Bought a refirb unit from Pyramyd. The thing spread a pattern of about 14" at 30 feet! Totally innaccurate. Not repeatable. Used $200 optical zoom scope and could not dial into get anything on target. Laser bore scope indicated something seriously wrong with this barrel. Sighting was off by 12" at 30 ft. This was a big mistake to buy refirb. I don't think anybody checked this one out B4 reselling it. Bipod mounting block is loose and flimsly. No good for laser mounting at all.
What others should know:Pyramyd quickly and politely refunded my purchase price & shipping. All reviews bragged about accuracy. I hope a NEW one works better! Appears to be a good gun.......if bought NEW.

    Things I liked:This gun is the BEST!!! it is: lethal accurate It can shoot with deathly silence. when fired it only produces a soft "thump" as the BB goes flying at approx. 500fps toward the target. It came with a bipod (very handy!) It came with 2 good sized clips and a speed loader ( I don't have to reload as often.) STORY TIME!!! I got this gun for my B'day a week and a half ago and my friends and I decided to have a 2-on 2 fight. I had this and an airsoft shotgun as a sidearm LOL, anyway... My team mate double crossed me and I got a clip unloaded into my back. I ran as fast as I could out of sight and jumped into a snow pile where I waited silently for revenge. To cut a long story short they began to search for me, and I began to pepper them with shots easily from at least 200 feet in the dark.(As I said accurate ) now my friends fear me and always try to either be on my team or stay out of where I can see them.
    Things I would have changed:Bipod was VERY hard to pivod at first and shakes from left to right while attached. Strap was rather weak I reccomend getting a new one
    What others should know:BUY THIS GUN YOU WON"T REGRET IT!!! and if you don't want to have to use X-tra money on a new scope just get the rifle that comes with one :)

    Things I liked:The rifle is very sturdy, and quite heavy also. This adds to the realism of the gun. I also like the bi pods quick release adapter, very handy and helpful, especially if you are shooting from a sitting position and dont want to support the extra weight of the bi pod. Magazine is built well and has not failed me, and its great that the package comes with an extra mag. I like that you can get a decent scope with the package deal, although i bought mine without it. I bought a Leapers/UTG 3-9 Full Sized AO scope (model LEPSCP-395AOMDLTS) wit red/green illumination to mount on the rifle but i also have the scope that comes with the package, so i know its a decent scope. This gun is VERY accurate, in fact it shocked me actually. I set up a 6 inch bullseye target and measured exactly 30 meters (32.8084 yards) away from where i was shooting from, and unloaded two full magazines (46 rounds) without missing a single shot. And thats only after 20 minutes of tweaking the scope. Also a very powerful gun and will shoot the fps that is stated on the items description page. i love this gun and it was definitely the best airsoft purchase i have made in a while. Perfect entry level OR for the serious airsofter like me. Also the perfect Scout Snipers choice!
    Things I would have changed:The Sling is flimsy, so get a new one. I think the gun is a little too heavy for the sling it comes with. The bi pod, although good, could be slightly better. Other than that, not a single thing wrong with it.
    What others should know:I think my above review is sufficient, but if its not , here is a few more words.... GET THIS GUN!... lol. You will not be disappointed.
