Step 4: Sniper

To be a sniper you must be patient, steathy and accurate. the word sniper means close precision engagment. you must have good aim. you must also have good contact with your other team members. the gear you need:
-Sniper rifle
-Camoflauge Clothing
-Side Arm
-Spare Mags

If you bought all of this gear all at once it would cost you $75-$950 Don't be afraid, your wallet will not burn, just try to find the cheapest prices.
Wait a minute... How exactly is an AEG most realistic? I thought that would be GBB.
A lot of GBB's don't have full metal components because it uses more parts for more movements. It would be unrealistically bulky an ddifficult to use. Almost all high-end AEG's are full metal, since the only moving parts ar einside of the gearbox. And actually AEG's have a suprising regularity of burst fire capabilities , that is if you build your own gun using an airsofting website that builds customs. They may cost a bit more but they pay for themselves in the field. And even if you use green gas guns, it can really burn holes in your pockets. At my local stores it cost $9 usd for 5 canisters. I don't recall their gram size but they are the small ones that fit inside of the pistols grip stock.
Actually, most high-end GBBs are full metal, and have real recoil. But yes, they use a bunch of gas, AKA money. But they look awesome doing it.
Well aeg can have the semi automatic and full/3-shot burst as well and gas autos are exspencive and use gas like crazy
Most GBB rifles have semi-auto. As for burst fire, they have it about as often as an AEG does, which isn't very often.
OK. Thanks for the clarification!
this guide is the only one on this site with any really useful information.
Thanks much
also walkie talkies dont hurt
unless they will get you discovered, or limit your ability to tell if someone is coming near you.

GO&nbsp;TO&nbsp;EVIKE.COM!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i bought a gas powered m16 and gas m1911 with 10,00 bbs and co2 they sent me spring m14 5,000 bbs and and a gas powered p30 with no co2
Don't forget A.S.G.I. Best reviews in the business and one of the best-designed websites on the net.
Amen. Evike is awesome. By far the best in prices and customer service and custom guns and variety and prices and discounts and prices. Point made?
Evike is very good and have some hard to find stuff there. The only downside is if your not in America shipping is a bomb.
yah but i preorderd a gun from evike and 4 months later after the eta it still didnt come in i had to cancle. <br />
Preorder usually is far past ETA on most sites anyhow. They can't control when shipments get in. Still, I feel your pain. I didn't preorder a gun, but a pretty sweet part. Took forever. Still is taking forever. :(
i know it rocks fogot to put it ittl be up soon!<br />
Loved it
Great instructable!
I totally agree. I bought an aeg from hobbytron for $80. It turned out to be plastic, inside and out. It accually performs pretty well, with an above average ROF for about 80% of the battery life, and about 300 fps. It could hold up for quite a long time as long as I don't do anything stupid to it. But I have seen some other unfortunate souls who paid 25% off and got 0% of what they paid for.
I,m more of a marksman and CQB guy
Just to inform you,a decent sniper setup will run around $400+ for just the gun. For a serious sniper expect $1000 for just the gun. For backyard wars...well a $100 gun will work, just don't take it to a pro game and expect to survive.(this post is from research and experience)
Try www.airrattle.com they have awesome prices!
it may have 500fps but the intervention m200 is way beter (with me shooting)
the beta intervention is a whole lot cheaper and common ($600). <br>they made only 100 Socom Barrett's!!! and cost about $1000
airsoft1017, good guide, but my team uses defenders, special ops, shock troopers, storm troopers, snipers, scouts, &amp; engineers. This is a good guide, though. If you'd like to use stuff of my airsoft guide, i support it (My basic airsoft battlefieldguide).
Would anyone know if theres a FN-FAL airsoft rifle?
I love hobbytron airsplat is awful megastore is all right but the rest are good<br>
Ha ha, first thought in my head when i saw that picture was, Teh sasquatch gang!
i have an mp5k actually 2 of them but theyve never been used in action, does anyone know if i should get a diffrent one or just use the one i got.
I have 2 mp5k's. One with a tactical setup with stock, silencer, and laser with scope, and the other is a cqcb with no stock or silencer shoulderstrap and red dot sight. They perform excellently in the field or in the urban zone combat. I recomend these for beginners or intermediates. Once you get really good I would consider buying a full custom gun from a reputable site like evike.com. They are full metal casings and gears and you chose the guns setup.
hobbytron is epic everyone cshould go to it and by a gun there<br>
its funny i have a m86 2 spare mags with folding stock and the L96a1 sniper rifle and as a secondary none yet because i dont know whats a better magnum spring or gas. can someone help with the last one?
I wouldn't get a magnum, but anyway that's me. <br>Spring would be cheaper but wouldn't go as far.<br>Gas may cost significantly more, plus you'll spend money for green gas, but it'll pay off a lot! You will need to take care of it more, including more maintenance and lubing it everything.<br><br>Personally if it was set in stone it had to be a magnum, I would get a gas magnum.
great instructable! i do have a great airsoft tip-if u hav a hot glue gun bottle rockets bbs and a bottle u can make a 6mm rpg by puting bbs around the bottle rocket using the hot glue...once dried point aim and fire
It's not recommended that you go into airsoft as a sniper.
nether do i
and why would that be? maybe if you do not know the surroundings, but in close quarters you still should have sidearm. and with a gillie suit that is suited to the area it can be very good, and you can make shots at them before they can even get to you even if they notice you.
because sniper is an advanced position <br>
who knows were to get a good sniper rifle at a good price? (54$ - 145$)
well airsplat.com has a nice sniper rifle on sale now for 99.99, and they even ship to california. it is the well mb10 and it is very good for the price it comes with scope and bipod.<br>
i just started airsofting and have a night prowler urban ausalt camo ( AEG) 355 fps with a 200 fps p36 and i have a 325 fps pistol ( i forgot the name) what would these guns combined be best for
probably feild or cqb that is the best for those types of guns <br>
awesome instructable i am yet to make one as good<br>
I make my own full body armor lol im gonna make a halo one
Awesome looking paintball gun. And yes, it is definitely a paintball gun. Airsoft guns have a more realistic body. Find the differences yourself.
