    I usually order from evike. They have a 20% off coupon this month. (BIGGEREVIKE) Or I order from airsoftatlanta cause theyre close to me.

    Also it wouldnt be a bad idea to upgrade your l96 for more accuracy and range rather than buy a new gun. Thats just my opinion.

    Assault weapons? I have a JG G36 and its treated me well for the most part. Id personally buy a higher end brand for an aeg unless your planning on upgrading it straight from the get go.

    First off, I personally don't have a L96. But, my friend has one. He uses .2s for a combination of accuracy and speed. But, for a scope, he just uses a old hunting scope...

    You should tell your friend that using .20's in a airsoft sniper rifle is ridiculous. First off it won't be accurate at all, if he thinks its accurate with .20's he hasn't used quality gun before. Tell him to use either .28's or higher. He will be blown away by what happens next.

    .2s are NOT accurate at all for sniper rifles. That's what he's trying to say.

    A sniper rifle is supposed to be accurate and good at long distance (at least an upgraded one). With .20 gram bb's your throwing that all away. A heavier bb will travel farther and be more accurate then a .20 and this is a proven fact. Especially if your gun is shooting hard. Use .28's and higher trust me you will see a major improvment. And make sure you set your hopup properly with heavy bb's.

    Edit: thanks jelly, that in short is what I'm trying to say.

    "Upgraded L96 Sniper Rifle"
    "Uses .2s"

    You must have gotten the ASGI "upgraded" L96.

    Also what kind of upgrades did you put in the gun? Good quality ones or your basic tune up kit for like $30? Did you tune your hopup properly with heavier bb's? Because if you did it properly you wouldn't say that about .2's anymore.

    and I wouldn't even think of using anything lighter than .25s in my AEG that shoots 360...

    and what the heck is "Purple ball bucking"?

    Nine ball? Oh well if you want to use .20's go for it. Just trying to help you realize that you could be more accurate if you use heavier bb's

    This. I use .25s in a gun that shoots 350fps.
    Anything lighter than .28s in a sniper rifle is pretty dumb if you ask me.
