Buyers guide

airsoft sniper rifle

How to choose the best Airsoft sniper rifle for me?

Before choosing the Airsoft sniper rifle, you must be clear what you expect from your Airsoft rifle. Individual to individual, the best Airsoft sniper rifle varies. A sniper rifle that might be great for professional Airsofters, but certainly not great for a beginner like you. So the best Airsoft sniper rifle depends on an individual’s need.

 

What are the key factors in choosing an Airsoft Sniper rifle?

 

  • Powerplant
  • Upgradability
  • Weight
  • Optics or scope
  • Accessorizing
  • Velocity

 

Powerplant

They are mainly two principal power-plants, gas and spring. These are generally considered as being real sniper rifles in the Airsoft Sniper world

Gas-powered

A gas-powered sniper rifle is very powerful compared to spring power. The gas-powered rifle offers a semi-automatic option. A gas-powered gun gives you more velocity and overall range. This kind of rifle tends to have better triggers.

The downside 
  • Gas-powered sniper rifles do not function well in cold weather, which can be a significant factor for Airsofters dwelling in a cold country.
  • The consistency of the rifle decrease, as the gas empties.
  • Once you finish gas, you have to reload both gas and BBs.
  • Gas-powered rifles are more expensive compared to a spring rifle.

 

Spring powerairsoft rifle

Spring power rifle is sometimes called bolt-action rifle. Real-life sniper rifles are also powered by spring. So, a spring-powered rifle gives you a more authentic feeling.

A spring-powered sniper rifle is much cheaper than gas-powered. Bolt-action rifle shot one fire at a time, then you have to reload this. Unlike gas-powered rifle bolt-action, sniper rifle function in both cold and hot with.

Downside

Bolt-action rifle has less velocity than gas-powered. You may have to upgrade this rifle to tune for long-range and accuracy, so you may have to spend some money additionally on it.

 

Upgradability

airsoft rifleSniper rifle out of the box is great, but most professionals and great snipers believe that upgradability is key.

Upgrading a sniper rifle improved accuracy, range, and speed. So, while buying a rifle you have to keep in mind with the rifle is easily upgradable or not.

 

  • A tighter bore improves the accuracy of your rifle. 
  • Sears and triggers need to be upgraded to handle more powerful piston, spring, and spring guide.

 

Weight

Usually, the sniper rifle is heavy and long. And this makes them difficult to carry around easily, while an intense match going on.

A Sniper have to move around or crawl around through delegate, narrow, and dirty places. So, you being a sniper will not choose a rifle that is too heavy and long.

Also, keep in mind, the lightest sniper rifle may be easy to carry around, but might not be accurate. So, I would buy a sniper rifle with the highest quality, average lightest sniper rifle available.

 

Optics

airsoft rifle scopeNo matter what happens, you cannot ignore this factor. Optics is one of the significant parts of the sniper rifle. Without a good scope, you will never be an excellent sniper.

The actual question is how much space is there to mount an optic. If not, what optic is compatible with it.

A quality magnified scope allows you to easily shoot the opponents accurately. Moreover, it helps you find other players and more importantly opponent sniper.

 

Accessorizing 

You must see if you can easily accessories your sniper rifle. Whether there are good rails to mount bipod, laser, and other accessories. Does the rifle have a hook to accessorize it sling? A sling can help the Snipers to hang rifles by the shoulder. Bipod plays a prominent part to help you fire steadily from a specific place. So, you must spend on a great metal bipod.

 

Velocity 

airsoft sniper rifleVelocity is not an important factor. Just be sure you do not go for a rifle with high fps (greater than 500 fps) or a rifle something with very low FPS. Some fields ban Airsofter with rifle velocity over 500 feet per second.

F A Q - about airsoft sniper rifle

What is the best Airsoft sniper rifle?

There is no best Airsoft sniper rifle. This answer actually varies from person to person.

If you are a beginner, then go for double Eagle fields mark or BBTAC m62.

 

For professionalgo for CYMA VSR 10.

 

And if you are a very young lad, go for some cheap rifles like CQB P1402 OR l96.

 

Does Airsoft sniper rifle hurt?

Again, the answer depends on the rifle. Usually, it does not hurt much. But if fired from a high FPS rifle, it can make substantial damage. Always wear goggles, vest and other safety kits, while experimenting with airsoft rifles.

 

Is spring Airsoft rifle good?

Quick answer yes, but not as good as a gas-powered or electric rifle.

 

What weight of BBs is best?

Definitely, BBs weighing greater than 0.25 g is best for accuracy. But you have to keep in mind whether your rifle is capable of shooting 0.25 g BBs accurately.

 

How far does Airsoft sniper rifle shoot?

A great or expensive sniper rifle shoots over 250 feet, accurately. The average price rifle does not shoot over 200 feet. Even if they shoot more than 200 feet accuracy is very questionable.

 

Can the Airsoft rifle kill a squirrel?

Though the great sniper rifle has capability of killing or hurting a squirrel or moles, but still a lot depends on the rifle and shooting distance.

 

What FPS is allowed in the Airsoft rifle field?

Generally, up to 500 feet per second is easily allowed but still answer may vary from field to field. The smaller field will not allow a high FPS rifle, as high FPS might hurt players.

 

Does getting shot with a BB gun hurt?

Short answer yes. Long answer-it depends on rifle power and the distance of shooting.

 

How accurate is an Airsoft rifle?

Accuracy contingent upon the two factors. One who is shooting and second on the sniper rifle. Expensive good quality rifles are very much accurate compared to cheaper plastic ones.
