    Don't worry, perfection can be achieved. You just need to forget about those rifles.

    Ready...

    Behold, the Classic Army M24.

    The best spring powered rifle I have ever owned/upgraded/shot.

    I think between me and EDI1st, we've recommended this rifle oh so many times. And for great reasons. Reasons that I have listed so many times, but I suppose once more won't hurt.

    So I'll begin...

    The bolt and its insides are APS2 compatible. It's stock (90 degree) sears are incredibly strong. It uses a hopup unit similar to PDI's unit and it uses AEG cut barrels. The stock is a solid chunk of polymer, the barrel and receiver are one peice and the barrel is thick (compared to a vsr or vsr clones barrel thickness).

    Now there are a few issues, but there really only minor issues. Magazines are sometimes tough to find, and when the mag is empty and the bolt is back, if you push the bolt forward you might break the magazine follower. But you'd have to really slam it, if your careful it shouldn't be an issue.

    Now, the last thing is finding them. I have only seen one US retailer that has some in stock, but I can't remember the name... Sorry. However, you can find them used and usually for a good price in the classifieds (whether it be here or somewhere else).

    Last note, the gun is great, but like every sniper rifle upgrades will be needed (I assume you know this from your OP, but I need to make sure). So if you can find one, get it, you'll be happy you did. I know I am.
