Tis nice. I bet it would look even better with some more cosmetic upgrades, though, because right now it does look a bit bare.

Looks awesome, but like Hubb said, you should add more stuff, it looks a little bare. It would be nice to see some damage pictures.

I have one complaint: This gun isn't a sniper. A sniper is a person, this is a sniper rifle. :)

Semantics. It is a very nice gun, and the only thing I'd add to it would be a stock. Other than that very well done. I cant wait to see some damage pics/vids.

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

Looks good. And about the sniper thing... Don't complain... It's a sniper of the potato gun world...

Also I really like the muzzle brake...

If you're going to come down to semantics, I would point out that it is neither a rifle, nor is it ever likely to be used in a sniping capability, so it's not really a sniper rifle either.

Still looks good though.

I rifle refers to the barrel being rifled, it doesn't refer to every gun with good accuracy...

That gun looks awsome. Can you post a closer picture of the rear of the gun?

Well, even its maker doesn't call it a rifle (he uses the word "smoothbore" throughout). But in simple terms I think "pneumatic shotgun" about covers it.

While wyz2285 is free to call his launcher whatever he likes, and the accuracy he's managing is impressive, my points about the semantic correctness of calling it either a "rifle" or a "sniper rifle" stand - it is neither rifled*, nor used in a sniping capacity.

*In before Jack saying that Steyr calls the smoothbore IWS 2000 a rifle.
