Choice of Replica sniper design.

Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Mon Jun 11, 2007 1:20 am

Hi all,

I am just about ready to start on my new project.. A pneumatiuc gun based on a sniper.
Inspire by FreakyShotGlass 's "Ultimate Aussie Plinker" I hope to have this done before i go to Sweden (in two weeks today).

I am about to start to make the furniture of the rifle and i have narrowed the replica down to 4 sniper rifles in use today.

Since you didn't put the Walther WA-2000 on the list, I had to go for the Awp ;-). .338 Lap is an AMAZING caliber. Good to 1,200 yards or so....

What are you going to make the stock out of?

Keep a build log posted!

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

why not replicate a more tubular design more suited to spudgun style construction like most 50 calibre rifles?

steyr

falcon

In my biased opinion, definitely the scout... that gun is simple and designed to do its job. No bells and whistles.

Mine is roughly based on the AWP(technically the AWM), but I would have loved to do either a TPG-1( My favorite rifle) or a Parker Hale M85. But I think that making wooden furniture based on a polymer rifle doesn't look as good as making furniture designed for wood.

My favorite sniper rifles are the psg-1 and te walter wa-2000, but from your choice of your guns the best is british police rifle.

Its hard to choose between the Scout and the AI Arctic Warfare. I am more interested in how you are going to make the guts of it. I hope you do finish it before you go away, it will look pretty sweet when finished.

thanks shud_b_rite.

By the Way i am gong to use this at about 30-40 metres away from my target.I am roughly basing the action on FreakyShotGlass's Ultimate Aussie Plinker.I am going to use compressed air but maybe there is a more powerful gas for this? or a more capacity gas?
