mosin said:I started using the UTG M324 when I converted from Paintball to Airsoft. Right away I knew the idea of patiently waiting for my targets was for me, then I saved up some coin, did a few odd jobs, and picked up an insane ROF M41FS offizier. After a few upgrades and tweeks, I've made mine be able to outshoot just about any UTG sniper out there, and almost be in comparison with the higher upgraded ones, full auto is soon to be disenguaged, and I'm going to drop maybe a 300% spring into it, because I want to be shooting just as far as the snipers out there. But I just did gradual modifications to my gun, so that I could know for sure that sniping was what I wanted, and at most for an upgrade I would spend maybe $20, so it wasn't the biggest deal to toss it if need be.
Enjoy your UTG though, if you find that your getting a lot of kills with it and enjoying the moment, keep shooting that until you have enough for a Maruzen, and shoot a PM to either Livonia or Tex. They have a lot of experience with sniper rifles and they can tell you just about anything that you'd need to know.
Thanks man, I converted from paintball to airsoft also and had 5 years on the semi pro level, just got boring after a while and with speedball there are no tactics and what not and with hoping to get a job as SWAT, I like the tactics side of things. If I like sniping as much as I think I will then I will shoot for a SWAT Marksman.
I actually talked to Livonia already about the two guns (UTG & Maruzen) and he suggested to do exactly what im doing and start with something smaller and work my way up, I dont plan on shooting the UTG for a real long period of time.
I had the Maruzen in the shopping cart ready to put in the credit card information and I thought id hit up Livonia and see what he suggests. I hope I like sniping, it appeals to me before I even pick up the rifle and put on the ghillie.
