UTG M324 Magnum Gen 3

  • The UTG M324 Magnum Gen 3, I believe it also goes by another name, yeah the M50, You can buy it at Evike, ShortyUSA (got mine from here), Airsplat, and even Hobbytron.

    -First Impressions
    When i opened up the box, it looked exactly like it did online, it was very very, being my 2nd airsoft gun, and my first sniper, I didn't know what to expect. The Barrel Assembly is a tough black metal, with an RIS attached to it. The scope I ordered with it was made out of the same metal the barrel was, and the body was a strong durable plastic, Assembly was easy, just insert one onto the other at tighten 3 screws with an Alan Key it came with.

    -Appearance
    With its bipod and scope on, this gun looks very intimidating, a classic bolt action sniper that you can see many places, first person shooters and movies, its a classic sniper that can be seen anywhere. Its very long and the buttstock is solid, which comes with 3 attachable buttstock extenders.

    -Feel
    This thing is heavy! At least that's what i thought compared to my MP5SD6. I'm not sure of the exact weight but I'd definitely say 7+ pounds. It hurts to wear on your back with the sling it can with, between the pointy scope, and the unbearable weight it puts on your shoulder, i dont think this could work in an airsoft battle without being your main weapon.

    -Performance
    This thing works amazing! Cocking it is fun for the first few times, adjusting the scope though, is a different story, its hard, especially on a windy day. Shooting the gun, it's quite, probably quieter than opening up a soda can. Accuracy is amazing, so curving with .2's for the first 15 feet, but after that you start to see it go up, i would recommend .25's or .30's, I'm not sure. This thing is slick, I'd hate to be running in an airsoft field and see someone with this in a bush pointed at me.

    -Accessories
    Ordering this from ShortyUSA, it comes with a free bipod, full metal, and I chose to get a 4x32 scope with it. The scope is nice, adjusting it is a bit hard though, the bipod works fine, no movement at all.

    -Modifications
    Definitely modifiable, it comes with a built in RIS on the barrel, so a scope, laser, red dot sight, anything could fit here. There's also an RIS in the front of the stock, where you can fit a bipod, laser, flashlight, or grip here.

    -Overall
    Overall this is a great gun, heavy, powerful, smooth, and has that "fear factor" in it, everything I love in sniper is here. Assembly is easy, shooting is fun, and hitting a target is satisfying. I'd give it a 9/10, the only thing i dont like is that sometimes, the magazine needs to be slammed into the sniper so that it will feed correctly, but that's just cause I'm not used to slamming magazines.

    -Recommendation
    I would easily recommend this gun to anyone looking for an all around good sniper rifle. Its cheap, comes with a bipod, and looks and feels amazing when holding it. Good job UTG!
