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.
This particular package also comes with a Diamond Tactical 3-9x32 full metal zooming scope. It features adjustable 3x - 9x optical zoom, along with a 32mm precision sniper scope lens, allowing you to zero in on your target, even from long distances. The scope is a high quality sniper scope that is build for reliability and accuracy, a perfect compliment to the DE MK96 AWP bolt action sniper. It includes weaver rail mounts, so it mounts on top of the MK96 with ease.
