    I'm looking for an affordable M24 sniper rifle that is either green gas, red gas, or CO2. I'm looking for something for under $250, but I'm willing to stretch to $300. Does anybody know of where I can find one? And how much it costs.

    Why gas? Why not just find a Classic Army M24 (spring powered) and be happy with an awesome rifle?

    For most gas guns to become effective you'll have to rig it up to HPA, and that can cost some money. While with the Classic Army Spring M24 you really only need a few things in order to make it a solid performing rifle (bucking, barrel, spring if you desire more FPS).

    I already own an HPA from a previous gas gun that I sold, and a few upgraded spring rifles. I prefer to have the realistic feel of a gas rifle and I would like to have one in my arsenal. If I end up not liking it, I'll just customize it, and sell it for a profit.

    It's a good thing you have the HPA rig, that will save you some grief.

    You could still get a CA M24 and a Gas bolt, but I'm not sure how you would rig the bolt to HPA...

    Another cheaper option would be to pick up a KJW M700 then try to find a M24 stock.

    You would probably have to search the classifieds for the Classic Army. Then you would also have to search for the gas bolt.

    http://airsoft.tiger111hk.com/Airso....html?osCsid=953bee1c8c111294b05b28cb4f8af30e

    These guys carry it, however its currently out of stock.

    Then a KJW M700 can be found on nearly any airsoft website (evike, GI, etc.).
    Now finding a M24 stock, that might be tricky... You may be able to find a used stock in the classifieds, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to attach to the M700 receiver. It might require some work.

    Thanks, I'll check it out. If it doesn't work out, what would be a good gas sniper with a decent fps that would stay within field limits?

    That would still be the KJW M700. Very budget friendly, and very upgradeable.

    Your probably not super familiar with BASR's but the takedown version of the KJW is largely avoided by people. This is because, at the takedown point, the gun tends to leak pretty bad thus giving you even worse airseal and consistency.

    Just wondering, what is the difference between the M700 and the M24 stocks? Is it just the adjustable butt plate?

    Anyhoo, the KJW can be a GREAT gun. You just need to upgrade it.

    It's that and traditionally Remington 700's (the gun that the M700 is replicating) have a stock like this,



    ForumRunner_20130107_222432.jpg

    Where the stock narrows near the barrel. And the M24,



    ForumRunner_20130107_222539.jpg

    Stays relatively the same thickness until the barrel.

    The KJW M700 however has the front portion similar to that of a M24 while lacking the adjustable butt plate.

    Ok, thanks.

    Also, I've heard from people that actually have the takedown version that it doesn't leak nearly as badly as everyone says. But why would you need to get the takedown anyway? What would you use it for?

    I almost put a bullet through my head

    Don't get the gas bolt....................................

    Pick up a KJ M700 or you can get the Tanaka

    Ya, unfortunately I haven't heard much about the gas bolt, but the upside of it all is he would still have a CA M24 (Win/lose situation I guess, but more of a win :D). I was just thinking of options in the price range, and unfortunately the Tanaka rifles are out of his budget, otherwise that would have been my first suggestion.

    Ya, I figured because of that HPAing it would be a hassle, therefore makeing it inconsistent.
