I doubt there’s a person out there who wouldn’t love to spend a few hours sniping in an airsoft war. Getting up close and personal is fun but camping in a bush? That’s also fun but immersive.
If you’re thinking of getting your hands on an airsoft sniper rifle, it’s important to purchase the right one. Trust me, you don’t want to spend $100 on a bad sniper rifle, I’ve had that experience before. These weapons tend to be a tad more expensive than other weapons but if you look in the right place, you can get an effective weapon for a low price.
This list will look at the top 10 best airsoft sniper rifles. Of course, there are rifles worth a thousand dollars that are better than any on this list but I’ll be taking cost effectiveness into account. All of the rifles listed below will allow you to snipe beyond your wildest dreams without emptying your wallet!
Note: All rifles have an FPS number, this statistic signifies the power of the BB as it leaves the weapon. A high FPS rifle will fire BBs with great speed, allowing it to cover a higher distance (basically better range).
10. M14 Socom (Bonus: Free 2000 BBs)
Price: $37.80 (currently on sale for $18.90!)
I would only reccomend this if you need a cheap backup option, or you’re looking to get into airsoft and you need a cheap starting rifle. It has a fairly low FPS and a low rate-of-fire but honestly, the price is really good so I had to include it on this list.
9. L96 model general spring rifle
Although it has lower FPS than the previous entry, this rifle comes equipped with a scope so you don’t need to pay extra like you would for the M14 (if you want a scope anyway). It’s also quite a lot cooler, in my opinion anyway, the L96 model looks incredible!
8. Dragunov SVD-S METAL
Don’t let the fact it’s missing a scope persuade you from being interested, this rifle is cost-effective and versatile. 400 FPS isn’t insanely high but its nothing to be sniffed at, you should have no problem at medium or even slightly long ranges with the Dragunov SVD-S.
7. JG M70 Bolt Action Sniper Rifle (Fake wood)
Personally, these types of rifles are my favorite. It looks old-school but it’ll serve you well on the battlefield, bringing a decent FPS to the table as well as a comfortable and easy to use grip. Please note, the scope is not included!
