or if everyone chips in and shows what they have in there rifle then it would probably grow even faster.
I believe Paul is in the process of doing something simmilar to that, but with his APS, using different springs and sniper bb's. Its a long process but it is worth the work in the end, we will have to wait and see the results....damm winter :-(

The M4 can be used as a counter-sniper weapon, do you plan on upgrading the M4? a BA is best for the shooter within the sniper team, I will not get into details now, it will be covered later.

I fall into this category and would very much like to see a Sniper's Section for this very reason. I've been looking into switching roles and I'm just waiting for this to take off.

Having our section would be awesome. Should it be restrain to snipers only? I usually go on Arnie's sniper perch but have one here would be nice. I totally support the idea!

Mu honest opinion, shouldn be restricted, because im just thinking.. for the time when i actually start playing, which hopefully is only a little over a year away, i would possibly walk in here to get info on sniping. and if yo merely restrict posting, it means others have to go through all the problems of pm'ing

If I wanted to get a gas airsoft bolt action sniper rifle, it'd have to be in the tanaka lines, whereas adjusting the velocity is an option.

Tanaka M24, ACIS, or M40A1 would be my choices. Then I won't have to worry about velocity limits in different fields, I can just adjust and adopt to it.
I dunt think the KJW gas sniper rifles are adjustable.

Then again, spring sniper rifles are good too. ahhh decisions decisions.

The m700 is adjustable since it's a tanaka clone.
I'd like to know if it's cloned close enough to take the aics stock though.

I'd like to have a separate section as well. Make it easier to fill in the void of real airsoft sniper info. If I want advice or info, I never look for in on ASC cuz not enough knowledge around, or wildly varying info when there should be only one answer. I just go to Airsoft Retreat Snipers Perch and mostly get what I need there.

I like the idea of a sniper's section but here's my issues with it. It's like the sniper clinic and sniper coaurse that Sha Do runs. One of the things he asks of attendees is to keep the information between the sniper crowd. This is not to create anamosity between airsoft snipers and assaulters. The point of it being that to snipe in airsoft (and be effective) is very difficult. The lessons learned on the coarse are to give the airsoft sniper an edge at acheiving proficiency. If everyone has access to that, you take away that edge. I feel the same way about a forum. If the forum discusses subjects such as basic ways to upgrade your BA and pros and cons of different sniper platforms and such, that's great. The problem I see is revealing all the information in one convenient place for everyone. Many airsoft snipers have taken the time to research real sniping techniques and training and figuring out what works for airsoft. If it gets posted up, everyone sees it and then the edge is taken away. I'm not trying to be elitest or anything like that so please don't take it that way. I'm just following the lead that Sha Do started with the clinics and courses.
