    Our take:  The all-new DE Shadow Ops AWP MK96 bolt action sniper rifle with a full metal tight bore barrel is one of the nicest bolt actions on the market for under $150.  It is rock solid with full metal construction on the barrel, bolt, and trigger assembly, combined with a super durable polymer body and stock to keep weight down while maximizing reliability.  This is easily one of the most durable bolt-action snipers on the market, with performance that dominates the competition.

    The body is nicely finished and most importantly, it shoots extremely hard and extremely accurately.  With adjustable hop up and an extremely long, tight-bore sniper barrel, power and accuracy are ensured.  Being that this is the newest production run model, DE has enhanced this rifle's internals from the factory, upgrading the spring and bolt action assembly for maximum power without compromising reliability.  The tight bore barrel increases the range of this sniper by more than 25% over its predecessor, and allows you to hit your targets with pinpoint accuracy.

    The bolt's action is crisp and confident, the shots are fired off with ease and precision, and the rear stock is both comfortable and sturdy.  With all of the factory-made enhancements, this MK96 tops out at OVER 450 FPS with 0.20gBBs while being able to shoot tight groupings at over 100 feet out.  

    This kind of performance, coupled with the DE MK96's market-leading price tag means there is no better time than now to experience the sheer performance of this sniper rifle for yourself.

    "Very good rifle. Got it today and was able to test fire it a bit before a meet I have tomorrow. Used .23g GBs and it fires hard and accurately. My only problem is that the clip sucks, and you need a special speed loader to actually load the BBs (the one they give you doesn't really work well). Otherwise, I couldn't be happier."

    "I purchased this rifle a week ago. I can only say this is my second purchase of one. But i can see many more in the future. The quality of service here is super!!! And as for the rifle, It came so accurate just out of the box. Even my son who is more into the electric guns loves it. Now if you don't think airsoft isn't for families, I am 60 years old and can't wait to get out and pop a shot into a young un. :) As for you young ones use some sense. Never shoot at anyone close range. If they are your friends they won't be long. Happy sniping to all."

    "i got this gun like 5 days ago and its a dandy! the only cons is the clip, its really hard to load it, a speed reloader dont work with it. the other thing is it dont come with a bipod or scope, and the bolt action is hard to pull back but it gets easier with wear on it. Other than that this gun is amazing!"

    "Dont even think about it, just buy it. Bolt action is FREAKISH and accuracy/FPS are beast. a pain to sight in, but once u do it is spot on every time. Pros; Accuracy durability weight bolt action FPS Cons: Rear strap ring is on the to so u cant use a strap easily safety trigger sometimes gets jamed bolt alittle hard but you'll get use to it The mag capacity is amazing for a sniper, and the gun is gret once mounted. but i would defintely suggest an electric secondary since you have to stay discreet oh and 1 more thing dont order with the Triology tactical hunting grad optic 3-9X32 if u expect getting it cuz i got the diamond tactical scope instead but its k i actually wantid that 1 but i needed 1 dollar more 4 free shipping. congratulations You have read the Entire REVIEW thanks $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$"

    "Accurate? Yes/ Rang? Yes/ Durability?Good / This has been a good gun for me. Only a few issues with the plastic parts, but other wise great. Shoots really hard and accurate with .30 BBs a top choice but not a must."

    "I got this gun about one year ago. It is the most reliable, hard-hitting sniper I've ever had! The whole body is strong and solid and I shot a can from 80 yards (with a scope, of course) and it fell on the first time it made impact. Awesome gun!"

    Kick Butt Sniper!

    "I wanted a good sniper rifle for around 100 bucks and this gun was my answered prayer. A little bit of a pain to get hop up just right but once you do its awesomely accurate. I play alot with my friends and now they all fear me. The bolt can be pretty hard to pull back sometimes so if you dont have muscles then get the jg bar 10 which my friend has. You'll probably want a good scope eventually for it since it doesnt have sights but its not that hard to aim once you get used to it. Awesome Gun!!!! "

    "I got this gun about 1 month ago and its amazing! I took it out of the box and got some goldenball 25s and shot at a box and was getting three inch groupings at about 25 feet away. When i took it to its firsts airsoft war hit my freind at 50 feet away right is the shoulder and he screamed in pain. Then while he was shouting my other friend tried to get away and and i hit him in the back while he was running! he had a big welt. this gun hurts no mag problems and no jams overall a very good sniper!!!(ps i dont have a scope but its not nececssary once you get used to shooting down the barrel) five out of five stars."

    GREAT GUN!
    17/12/10
    By: got the gun in five days

    "This is a great gun with amazing accuracy. If you are playing a long distance game (130 ft plus) i would recommend .2 because they have longer range and pretty good accuracy. If you are playing shorter distance i would recommend .25, .28 or .3. They are heavier and have more accuracy and less range. Get a scope in the pre owned section because its cheaper and you NEED a scope since there is no aiming sights. When you put the magizine in the gun make sure the barrel is facing the sky or it wont go in.(I dont know why). There is a hole for a bipod(not a rail). I tried to cover everything so i could help your experiece with this gun as fun and stress free as possible. You will own the battle field with this gun, buy it!"

    By: airsoft master

    "This is the best gun in the world and definetly the best sniper i have ever used. This l96 is better than all the other ones without a doubt. get this gun now and use .2gram bb's becuase they are fast and accurate. i have had this gun for a while now and it is very durable. the only problem is that the hop up is inside the gun. Get a $30 scope and you will have great accuracy. this gun shoots far and i mean FAR!"

    "This is an incredible gun and for its price as well. get it while you can. i was working miracles with .2g bbs but .25bbs will give you that extra umph. Pros nice heavy feeling to it (not too heavy) Metal Barrel Easy assembly About 160 ft range with .25s durable Cons This is just a cosmetic worry, this gun gets scratches really easy but nothing that effects the performance."

    I love the L96!
    11/03/10
    By: Nas'd

    "I love the L96. it's reliable and sturdy with amazing accuracy and even more amazing power. Most guns you have to upgrade to get 500fps+. This comes out of the box with the power most players can only dream there guns will ever have. Now most of you guys probably noticed that it doesnt come with a scope or bipod. Well reason being is because 1. this makes it so that you can pay for the scope and bipod and 2. it leaves you, the buyer, the responsibility of choosing the scope you feel is right for you. Cause lets be honest, Every one has different eyes so 1 standard scope is not going to work perfectly for every one (besides, you would have bought a different scope even if it did come with a scope. you know and I know it). As for the bipod you can buy a great bipod here at ASMS cheap. All in all, this gun is awesome. But you don't have to take my word for it. Buy it yourself. Get .28 bbs, go to a game, and own. You'll be amazed what an L96 can do for you. =) Snipers rule."

    DE M57 good...but...
    09/05/14
    By: Will

    "Not a bad rifle for the price. DE cloned the Maruzen type 96 to compete with Wellfire and UTG. Unfortunately, the DE M57 is not 100% compatible with internal upgrades made for Well/UTG. I found out the hard way. 1. trigger sear is 45 degrees vs 90. If upgrading pistons, you'll also have to upgrade trigger box to 90 degree sear. 2. Hop up chamber and bucking is slightly different design. You can install a tightbore barrel designed for Maruzen style, but you'll also need to install a stock UTG bucking due to DE changing the inner barrel cut. 3. Aftermarket aluminum hop up lever arm not compatible with DE chamber. 4. Outer barrel does not thread into receiver like Well/UTG. 5. Orange muzzle is pined in place vs threaded like Well/UTG. 6. Outer barrel is larger ID, meaning PDI aftermarket chamber will not install without modification. Good rifle, but if you plan to add upgrades, get the Well MB01 or UTG. You'll run into a bunch of headaches trying to upgrade the DE M57. Only giving 3 stars due to headaches trying to upgrade, otherwise it's 4 or 5 stars in stock form."
