Okay, so Im crazy into WWII rifles, like Mosin-Nagants and Mausers, but the ones I find are all realy low fps or easily breakable. Is there a retailer that sells this type of weapon, That meet the conditions of an auctual battle? (Not counting the Thompsons that are at every Mc sports in michigan) Somthing usable as a sniper, please. Thanks guys

Tanaka produces the K98k and Gewehr 33/44, Zeta Labs is known for their Mosin Nagant rifles, and you should know about Marushin's M1 Garand and M2 Carbine. I heard somewhere that a Marushin M1 Carbine exsisted, but I haven't seen it.
I also saw a picture of upcoming WWII rifles that ARES is supposed to be released in the future that includes a few varients of the Nagant, M1 series, and Thompson. I'll be really surprised if ARES follows through with those releases.
It seems like a handful of airsoft companies have been taking interest in the WWII airsoft community, which I'm glad to see (seeing as I've been in it off and on).
Edit- G&G also has their K98k that they just released. It's supposed to be awesome.

Yea WW2 Airsoft weapons are pretty limited as far as springers go. The Zeta Labs Mosin Nagants seem decent. They don't take standard parts though. The hop up is custom I believe and so is the bolt. The loading mechanism is also finicky.
The Dboys Kar98 is pretty much useless.
The Tanaka K98 is your best option for a rifle though it is gas and hard to find as it is no longer produced.
I make custom Kar98s using BAR-10 internals from time to time. I don't have any available right now though.
