Black Ops Tactical Sniper Air Rifle
Benefits of a gas-piston powerplant over a metal mainspring:
The manufacturer claims this gun delivers .20-inch groups (center-to-center) at 10 meters.
This is a breakbarrel air rifle, but the manufacturer has installed a bolt to give this air gun a more authentic tactical look. The bolt is non-functional.
Where most tactical shooters only launch BBs, the Black Ops Tactical Sniper is something special. Instead of a smoothbore BB rifle, this rifled gun will give you more accuracy than ever with lead pellets! Featuring and adjustable comb, you’ll have no trouble finding a comfortable hold. Each Sniper Air Rifle includes a 4x32 scope or removable fiber optic sites if you want to test your shooting skills. The adjustable bipod attaches directly to the forearm so there’s no need for awkward barrel clamps or added adaptors. Go prone, post up, and send some lead downrange!

Things I liked: Definitely has the cool factor. Plenty of power. Seems to have the 'potential' for accuracy, but it will test your shooting technique.
Things I would have changed: Barrel came exceptionally dirty. I spent at least an hour running patches through it before they were only coming out light orange...not sure if this was dried grease residue or light rust. After thorough cleaning, rifling now looks sharp and bright. Long, springy, heavy trigger pull. The WORST I have experienced in many guns of this type. Picatinny rail for the scope mount is coated with thin layer of rubberized plastic - better if this was just metal. With scope mounted, the rail and it seems the whole plastic body of the receiver flexes. I have not found a way to tighten this. That can't be great for accuracy. The bipod is heavy (all metal) and is quite wobbly. This is a fairly long and heavy rifle and to definitely takes effort to cock. The "suppressor" is for looks only and does not appear to be removable. This rifle is loud and it would benefit from a functional suppressor.
What others should know: I find the long, heavy, springy trigger pull to really take some work to get used to. I am a huge believer in the value of a good trigger and good optics and this trigger is just ridiculous. Had I known about the trigger, I would not have bought this rifle. Also, I'm having trouble getting this one to settle down and be consistent despite my best efforts. I've got a couple hundred shots through it of at least 5 different pellet types (JSB, H&N) ranging in weight from 14gr to 21 gr. In 7-10 multi-shot strings at 35 yards, I can get many to stay in a 3/4" to 1" group, but there are always several fliers that are 3/4" to 1" away from the main shot cluster. Artillery hold, bipod, no bipod, etc. and I'm still hoping to find the right trick.
Things I liked: Great looking gun! Powerful! Solid and well put together Scope is well made, quite clear but no magnification Excellent value
Things I would have changed: Make it a real silencer - this is one LOUD gun! It's taking a while to get it sighted in. Not sure if it's the gun, the scope or me... or the gun just needs to settle in. Lose the white Black Ops logos.
What others should know: You'll need to clean it and lube it and clean it again. Then the dieseling will make the thing sound like a firearm for about 15 shots. Then clean it again. Not for the faint of heart - this thing has a sound and recoil you need to be ready for. I bought the old spring .177 version refurbed from the manufacturer. I understand the new gas versions have more power... but the build quality and materials are lower - and do not have the butt length adjustment mine has - which is needed for a bipod mounted sniper weapon. Trust me, the springer has more than enough power. Holy cow, this shoots like a 22LR.
Things I liked: Awesome rifle
Things I would have changed: Like the scope
What others should know: Keep up the good business
will the CVlife 16" hunting scope fit on this
which pellet is best for hunting on the .22 cal black ops shiper rifle?
Believe it or not, at 35 yards (105 feet), using the 14.3gr Crosman hollow point, I am getting a QUARTER sized group, and often BETTER. I would like to stress that this is NOT the rifle to go outside at night to dispatch a critter going through you garbage, unless your neighbors are about 100 yards away. Close-by neighbors who do not really KNOW you and that you shoot air guns WILL end-up calling the police. How do I know? Well, let's just say "Been there. Done that." I really HATE the racoons around here_ LOL! :-)
Which is the maximum reach in yards with good accuracy?
I HAVE SEEN A VIDEO OF A MAN SHOOTING A SODA CAN AT 85YRDS.
