    Electric sniper rifles are called DMRs and only use semi auto I believe.

    Usually you have to buy a gun then upgrade it. Also if you want it to be good it will cost you both time and lots of money

    Well, if i get a DMR it will primarily be my secondary gun. So im not looking for something extreme. But I will definetly do my research before any purchase. What features should i be looking for while searching for a DMR?

    Umm.. I'm not very experienced with DMR's so I won't be much help but basic things are long (quality) barrel, strong spring, good gears, basically every part of the gearbox gets upgraded when people go all out. But hopefully somebody else has better input because I really don't know which are most important

    Not a DMR. It just has the aesthetics of one. Won't perform very well in the DMR role stock either.

    Airsoft GI customs are crappy. Op can I ask why you will be using a DMR as a secondary?

    I already have a very nice full metal thompson that i spent too much money on that I will be using as a primary gun. Id also like a secondary and I really thought it would be cool to have an electric sniper which i found out is called a DMR.
