Ive been asked if airsoft sniper rifles could be used for HFT? I assume this would not be allowed?
Well, they're not legal for FT because of the ammo, and i think for the same reasons they would be for HFT... i doubt they'd take a target down unless close, but even if they did ricochets would be a night mare forcing everyone to wear glasses at least... but im sure someone jump in with something catagoric.
Thanks Rob. I think the richocet is the main problem. There are some cracking looking airsoft rifles out there. Its a shame spring gun manufacturers couldnt make the odd L96 lookalike or at least sniper-ish lol.
Hmmm now theres a thing
He said "Sniperish" Chris not Paddle like
I would have though a negative reason would be the mess they leave behind!
having been a sniper in a airsoft team i can honestly say they would be useless in any sort of target shooting my rifle was custom built it pushed out 490 -500 fps but as they only have a hop rubber and a smooth bore they aint very accurate , it may group at 40 - 50 mm at 25 yards but at 45 with wind even with a heavy bb would be impossible lol there good for man sized targets and thats about it .............. il stick with my steyr thanks lol
it would be interesting to see how much energy it still had at 45 yards can any1 calculate it ? a .20g bb at 500 fps ?
I wonder if some guns are like dogs, they seem to have something in common with their owners
Now that made me laugh!!!
