UTG Shadow Ops Black Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle
I like this bad boy,, easy to shoot and the weight is great in my opinion.
shoots well with heavier bbs get .36 in my opinion too. .28 are good indoors and with no air blowing outdoors.
I'm getting really good shots at 30 yards, again really fun sniper with a decent scope and we shot over 1,200 bbs and got only one jam (easy fix anyways) nothing to worry about when parting it (really easy to put together and part when needed.
HAVE FUN (put on some eye protection)
Prosfun easy to deal with shoots well with good bbs
Consno storage! flimsy tripod holder thingy design tripod itself is flimsy too but gets the job done

Best Sniper for the Money
I have owned this sniper rifle for years now and I it has never malfunctioned. It is very accurate with the heavier ammo (.2 and higher) and extremely powerful for an airsoft gun. The scope makes for a very accurate shot and adds to its great look and feel. The bipod is easily removed or attached and very stable. The clips are speed loadable and look/feel very realistic. The gun is slightly heavy due to all the quality metal parts, but it is easy to cock.
ProsLots of quality metal parts, speed loadable, incredibly realistic, high capacity mags, bipod, scope, quiet shots, accurate, powerful
ConsSlightly heavy

Worth It
Well this gun is great. I ordered it on a Friday and got it in a week. The Pros to this gun far outweigh the Cons.

- Strong Sturdy Material
- Very Accurate while maintaining Power and Range
- Bolt slides very smoothly

- Hard to Load during a battle

Conclusion- I would recommend this gun to any airsoft enthusiast.

bad wind
hey its me again my friends Jack and Aidin had a 2 on 3 war and i learnd not to find a snipping post in the middle of a war. i stuck my head out and sniped, but the wind blew the projectile to the right. Aidin was in my tree house and heared the nois so i duced behind my tree. i was about 50 ft. away and stuck my head out and he hit me with his 400 fps. shoot gun. over all don't have an airsoft war in wind. a grate gun at a great price. if your lucky and get it, get the scope on the accessories list. best sniper in my opinion. GOOD LUCK AND PLAY SAFE!

Best Sniper Rifle
If you are looking for a airsoft sniper, this is the one to get. Despite the price, this gun is amazing. Has the longest range of any of the airsoft guns I've seen.

"Stopping Power"- 400 FPS!

This gun is so amazing. I just got it and it shoots great. Although I only have .20g bbs, Im getting .28g to make my gun more accurate. Cant wait to practice shooting some more. Although its heavy, it feels nice, looks really nice, and I love it. Great gun. Anyone who has the money to get it I suggest it.

i think a snipers job to be a sarp shooter and the eyes of the force so to do that you need a good gun and this one fits your need i have this gun and it is very good and if you do not mind the price get it

Just ok
when first day i received this gun, i was so pissed off by incredible worst accuracy. After check, i found the red cap barricade muzzle of barrel!! So, BB will hit the cap and go no where. Once i removed the cap, this gun restores the accuracy it should have. In a word, nice gun, bad manufacture!!

nice gun
this gun is amazing and i trief to shout out on my porch and it bounced off of fence 55 yards anway and came back at me. it broke the skin and it hurts all of my friends.
January 8, 2010
this gun is awsome i got it last week and last night i wanted to test it so i put up a thick blanket and shot it from about 10 yards away and it left a nickle size ring where i hit it but YOU NEED A SCOPE!this DOES NOT COME WITH A SCOPE SO BUY ONE.the only bad thing is you have to put it together when you get it.
By Sam
December 10, 2009
Hay guys, I was just out shooting my gun. It was not that accurate with .2s. Suggest .3 or higher. you will lose range but who cares. If you try to it a guy from 100yards miss now he know were you are and rushes you. 50 yard miss and if you miss agian then he on top of you with a aeg.:( dead but if you hit him before can reach u becouse u have a bb thast goes straight u will be alive to make the next shot.

This gun is great. The sniper scope that you can buy which is the leapers one is ok. This sounds weird but i highly reccomend putting a red dot for short to medium range NOT LONG RANGE. It is extremely accurate even more accurate then the leapers.

This gun is amazing
me and some friends were having a 4 vs. 4 airsoft war and i shot a coke can out of my friends hand from 90 yards with .25 gram bbs it went through the can and welted his hand so bad he dropped his 300 dollar JG!

NIce Gun
OK,i agree with everyone else on the good stuff. SO i am going to tell u the bad stuff. 1st the clips get stuck every once in a while. So far i have found it helps to make sure your hand is not blocking the clip from coming out. 2nd The bolt is kind of hard to pull back. 3rd this could be good and bad it is extremly heavy. I do suggest getting the scope. without it the gun is still goo but not as good. Also this gun is a sniper riffle so when u are shooting it out with your friend u might want to keep your distance. U might want to bye extra clips to. I did and have found them useful. Just a tip DONT SHOOT ANYTHING OF YOUR MOMS CLOSE UP. IT WILL GO SRAIGHT THROUGH IT. I shot a flag. Now that flag has a bullet hole through it. Enjoy the gun!!! Hope this helps. (just becouse this is all nagative does not mean i dont like it....I love it great gun!!!!)

Very Sick
I was in a large 8 v 8 airsoft battle... Me with my utg vs. their guy with echo 1 M4 carbine... who won... me. He poked his head out at around 250 feet away and i hit him right between the eyes. It broke skin and he still has a scar to this day. With .30 gram bbs it is more accurate than my 250 dollar pellet gun. It is amazing!

This Gun Rocks
This gun is just amazing for any snipers it has the accuracy and power you want from a sniper i shot my friend from 320ft ad it still broke skin its amazing in battle but i highly recomend getting a leapers true strength 4x32mm scope and a scropian for a side arm overal its great go buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't taken it into a battle yet but I will this weekend. From where I can tell it has awsome power so much that .20 gram BB's dont work not even .25. I have ordered 30 gram. I have my hop up turned all the way down and the BB's are still flying high and to the right. I noticed a large improvement from the .20 to the .25 so I hope the .30 will be even better. So far I am in love with it and can't wait to shoot somebody.

Best of the best
If you want a semi-cheap, professional grade rifle I extremely recommend this gun. It is definitely worth the price. It's perfect for long range shots with .20 gram bb's and very powerful. This is definitely the best gun I have!

very nice
This gun kicks but!, the only troubles im having with it right now is that the clips keep getting jammed, so its hard to put in the gun also some of the bolts get loose which make the gun unusable untill you screw them tight again but other wise i given my friends some huge welts!

By Marko M. from Chicago, Illinois on April 29, 2012
What about the range of this rifle? How far does it shoot?
By Chris from Charlotte, North Carolina on May 2, 2012

This guns range is great! I can easily hit a body size target at 100 ft with .30 g bb's, and thats with the hop-up all the way down. I suggest the recommended scope and nothing lower than .25 g bb's. It's a great gun for the price.

By Marko M. from Chicago, Illinois on April 29, 2012
Does it come with a scope? And if not, what kind should I get? This is my first time trying out an Airsoft sniper and I've got no idea what's the deal with a scope. Thanks.

By ryan from ny on February 21, 2012
does this gun come with a scope or do you have to buy it seprate?

By Staff on February 28, 2012
