The BBTac is a powerful airsoft gun with a 400+ FPS which allows you to fire 0.20 BBs, while it will fire a 350 FPS with 0.25 BB’s. You don’t need to worry about gas or batteries to operate the rifle, all you need to do cock and shoot.

As well as having a powerful shot, the rifle is also very accurate, and the cock and shot action is not too hard to pull back, making it very user friendly. While the bolt, barrel, bipod, and trigger are all made of metal, the body of the rifle is made from a durable plastic meaning the whole rifle is well made and built to last.

 

The Best Airsoft Assault Rifle: UKARMS M14 

If you’re more of an automatic rifle fan, then the UKARMS M14  could be perfect for you. This airsoft gun is a full-scale replica of the M14 automatic rifle and is compatible with 6mm BB’s. This firearm looks, feels, weighs, and functions just like a real M14 rifle, it’s just safer.

  • Includes adjustable hop-up and speedloader

Firing at a velocity of between 280 to 300 FPS, with a range of 120 feet, the M14 has a good range, while delivering a powerful shot. The rifle comes with a 37-round magazine and also with a barrel cleaning rod so you can keep the barrel maintained and clean.

We took this rifle down to the range for some target practice and found it to be very accurate. The sights are adjustable, giving you the precision you need to really hone in your target.

The only downside is that the stock is made from plastic that feels a little cheap, but other than that, it’s a well-made, durable M14 replica.

The GameFace 52004 sniper carbine  is a spring-powered single-shot action airsoft rifle. The rifle is well-made from the highest quality materials. The rifle is easy to load, and its magazine holds up to 29 rounds giving you plenty of firepower and shots before you’ll need to reload.

Spring Bolt Action Well m187d 

The Spring Bolt Action Well m187d  is as the name suggests a spring-bolt action airsoft sniper rifle. The Sniper RIfle fires at an impressive 500 FPS, with 0.20g BB’s. The rifle comes with a scope and a bipod, so you don’t have to worry about buying these things separately.

We like the fact that you can upgrade/downgrade the rifle to how powerful you want it. If the 500 FPS is too high you can put in a weaker spring. For upgrading, it’s recommended that you upgrade the trigger box to a better one, so you have stronger springs to prevent it from breaking. You may also want to consider upgrading the cylinder, piston head as well to prevent the spring from breaking.

The accuracy of the shot is impressive, we tested it at 100 feet, and the shot was deadly accurate. For a sniper rifle replica, it’s quite lightweight and small, which makes it easy to move around with, giving you lots of flexibility with where you want to use the firearm.

The rifle is a good weight, meaning you can maneuver it easily and fire it in a host of different locations. The shot hits hard and accurately, so it’s perfect for taking out and practicing with.

Comfort and style are the standout features of the Well MB4411MG, and if these are things you look for in an airsoft rifle, the Well MB4411Mg could be perfect for you.

 

AGS McMillian Sportline M40A3 

The AGS McMillian Sportline M40A3 Sniper Airsoft Rifle  is a bolt action spring rifle. The rifle will fire at around 420 FPS, which is a pretty powerful shot. You can use 0.20 bbs with this rifle, and the bolt action is very smooth but does have a certain level of resistance to it.

We noticed that the rifle is far more accurate when there’s little to no wind present, but this makes sense, so consider using the rifle on still days if you can.

The rifle is a formidable sniper, it is quite heavy, so this may deter beginners, but it does give the rifle a very solid feel. The rifle will fire 10 bolt action shots before a reload is needed, this isn’t a super high-capacity but is sufficient.

The rifle has a range of about 40 meters, but the rifle doesn’t come with a scope, so you will have to buy one separately.

 

The Most Authentic Airsoft Sniper Rifle: BBTac Airsoft Sniper Rifle M62

It’s a great option for beginners and not hard to change the spring should you need to. The rifle is made from plastic, but it’s tough plastic, so the rifle is tough and built to last. The rifle does come with a scope, it’s not the best, so you may want to upgrade, but it’s good to get started with.

The trigger has a nice resistance; it’s not too tough and is easy for the user without straining the hand. We liked the fact that the rifle is quick to reload, which is great when you’re looking to fire quickly.

 

Most Accurate Airsoft Sniper Rifle: Gamo 6110017154 Varmint

Unlike the Raptor, the Gamo doesn’t have any noise dampening built-in, so it is louder than the Raptor when taking a shot. The rifle does come with a one year warranty, which is a nice addition. The 1250 FPS makes the Gamo perfect for hunting small game, pest control, and target practice.

What Is an Airsoft Sniper Rifle?

Airsoft sniper rifles are a type of airsoft gun with a powerful shot and long-distance range. They are great for those marksmen looking for a safer alternative from live firearms and are perfect for those looking to sharpen up on their shooting skills or pick up a new and enjoyable hobby.

One of the first things you’ll notice when looking at airsoft sniper rifles is that most of them are spring powered, this means that you’ll have to cock and load the sniper when you shoot it. This is good as it means you don’t have to worry about re-charging the battery or buying more gas to power the rifle.

Sniping in airsoft is a fun way to mix it up if you already have been playing with airsoft for a while, and they’re a great inexpensive way to get started in shooting. Spring-powered airsoft sniper rifles are similar to spring pistols just larger and more powerful.

Most good quality airsoft sniper rifles will shoot at least 400 FPS or more; this added power gives you a powerful shot and a slight edge in range too. These types of firearms do require some arm strength to manipulate the bolt and pull back to cock the rifle.

 

Choosing the Best Airsoft Sniper Rifle

Choosing the best airsoft sniper rifle will depend on your needs and what you’re looking for. All airsoft guns are a good option if you’re looking at getting into shooting, but airsoft sniper rifles are perfect for those looking to refine their technique and get comfortable shooting at long distances.

Airsoft sniper rifles give you the opportunity to get laser focussed on the target you want to hit, most of the rifles we looked at give you the ability to change the spring depending on how powerful you want the rifle to be. It’s worth checking the FPS before you make a purchase, as this will give you an idea of how powerful the rifle can be.

Another thing to look out for is what’s included with the rifle; some come with sights, bipods, and other accessories, while some just come as singular items. We recommend that you choose an airsoft sniper rifle that is made with durable, tough materials. Most of the time, if a rifle is made from tough metal or tough plastic, the rifle should last a long time, provided you care for it properly.

Some of the airsoft sniper rifles we looked at come with warranties that cover you should something happen. Some of them don’t, so it’s up to you whether a warranty is important to you. Most airsoft sniper rifles are very affordable which is great for those on a budget.

 

How to Buy an Airsoft Sniper Rifle

The first thing you need to establish is budget, while airsoft sniper rifles are pretty affordable it’s still worthwhile thinking how much you want to spend. You may have to factor in buying a sight, bipod, and other accessories if these accessories aren’t included with the rifle you buy.

Another important factor is to think about the skills that you’re looking to develop; if you’re looking to get better at long-range shooting, then an airsoft sniper rifle is a great idea. If you want to get into airsoft and shooting, then again, an airsoft sniper rifle is a good place to start. Think about what you want to achieve and the level you’re at before making a purchase.

 

Sharpen Your Shooting Skills

Now we’ve looked at ten of the best airsoft sniper rifles around; you should have some idea of what you need to look for.

While airsoft isn’t the same as real shooting, it’s a great alternative, particularly if you’re looking to increase your skills with a firearm without spending lots on an actual gun. Airsoft sniper rifles are particularly good if you’re looking to sharpen your skills or get comfortable with long-range shooting.

The best airsoft sniper rifle we tested and would recommend is the Raptor Whisper Air Rifle  as we explained earlier, the rifle is versatile, easy to use and very user friendly, all while delivering a powerful, accurate shot.

There’s not much more you can ask for in an airsoft sniper rifle, and whichever choice you decide to make, be sure to keep those factors in mind when you’re making a decision.
