1. I got ripped off b4, so that's y I'm asking ya'll.
2. I need a paintball sniper rifle. Do ya'll know of any good 1s?

I know of the "Longbow", but it's 2 expensive. I also know of the Tippmann, but it's not what I'm looking 4. Any thoughts?

Longbow is nice; its an AGD Tac-One with Special Ops Paintball mods. I agree it is very expensive. A good sniper setup would be quiet and accurate and low profile. This rules out most tourney guns, they have a hge profile and are brightly colored. Therefore, a good Autococker or Automag should do you fine. The new Smart Parts Ion would be great for setting up ambushes because it is cheap and has high rate of fire. If I were you, I would stay away from Armotech, Ariakon, and Warsensor. They all have bad problems that come up a lot. You should instead get something like this : Psychoballistics Lightning (or Superbolt) Autococker, expansion chamber, and a nice barrel like a J&J Ceramic or Smart Parts Teardrop or Progressive. Never get a barrel longer than 14" as it decreases gas efficiency and accuracy. That setup should be very quiet and accurate. That particular autococker can be had for $140 new, which is really good price, but the pneumatics on it arent exactly the best. I heard from some people that theirs leaks, but some report no problems. The pneumatics can be replaced with good ones though. For another good autococker I suggest a Trilogy Competition (also called Trilogy Comp). It's around the price of a Tippmann A5 which is also nice, but pretty loud. (I have an A5)
The Trilogy Comp has a regulator for consistancy and it runs off of nice low pressure so it's quiet. I recommend getting a cheap compressed air tank and a remote.
If you dont want an autococker, try Automags. A good quiet setup would be an Automag Pro-Classic, cheap nitro ('mags are quieter on nitro) and a Qloader or something. The Qloader is a spring fed hopper that you can mount under barrel to lower your profile. It also feeds faster than any human can shoot. It's probably the best loader you can get for sniping. The Pro-Classic is $229 on the Airgun Designs website. It comes with a decent barrel too, but again I recommend a Smart Parts TearDrop or Progressive or a J&J Ceramic barrel. The Tac-One automag is probably the best mech gun ever, but it's $450 and it uses nitro/HPA only. You can always get that and add on the Longbow kit.
Another option is a pump-action. The Phantom is one of the best, and so is the WGP Sniper. They are both pump action and accurate, the WGP Sniper is the predecessor to the Autococker. It just uses a pump instead of pneumatics. Dont get a stock class phantom though, it requires you to tilt the gun every time you load a ball. the one on is fine. A regulator can also make both pump guns quieter, and you can always convert the Sniper to an autococker so it's semiauto. The Sniper comes in right feed, left feed, or vertical feed. Don't get vertical feed if you want to use a sight, if you want a sight, and you have a vert feed, you need an offset rail.
Well, that's all I can think of for right now, if you have any questions dont be afraid to ask. Remember to camoflage yourself well, and have fun balling!

TY very much!!!

Can u put up some websites 4 me 2 try? I tried 2 find some of these, but couldn't find them.

np, anytime.

What do you mean by websites? do you want like a store or a tactics site? I'm a member of the brigade and the forums on The brigade lets you keep track of your progress as a player, and the forum is just plain cool. If you sign up fo rthe brigade, the more you play, you get benefits like free gear (small things like poda and grenades). If you sign up for brigade, it also has a tactics quiz and other useful things like game locator to find local woods games, and if you sign up, it will ask you for a recruiter ID. THe recruiter ID is 6015. Otherwise, if you dont want to register for brigade, then just check out the tactics, they have lots of stuff on sniping.


you can PM me anytime.

how can the tippmann not be your thing?

tippmann 98 custom with a flatline is teh best sinper paintball gun you can get ive had one myself for 3 years and i havn't had one problem with it i could throw it off a cliff and it wouldn't break

plus it shoots farther and contrary to popular belief its acurate as anything ive ever seen as long as its not too windy

the flatline takes forever to remove and clean if you get a ball break. also, its very loud. a better sniper barrel would be a stiffi, whisper, JJ ceramic, or dye ultralight.
