"This was my first airsoft sniper rifle and I was really impressed. Right out of the box it was shooting at over 450FPS. The bipod is very unstable when running with it but when your using it, it is fine. This gun will need a scope so buy one with it. I would recemend using .28's wit this gun. Keep in mind, it says 8 pounds and it migh not sound heavy but it is hard to hold steady while standing. Overall a great gun and definetly use the bipod."
