How to Build a Cheap Paintball Sniper Rifle

While it may be easier to buy a designed paintball sniper rifle, it may be cheaper to build your own. Once you have basics of the gun and then attach some accessories, you can have the rewarding experience of building your very own custom paintball sniper rifle. The marker, a sniper barrel, and a long range scope make up the basic necessities. Several upgrades can be added such as a bi pod, a hopper or magazine to hold the ammo, and even some camouflage.

The first and most crucial part of the gun is the marker (the actual gun itself). As long as your choice is a dependable, upgradeable, and within your budget then it will work. Once this choice is made 7.62×39 ammo for sale , or if you are modifying your current gun, then add a compatible barrel. Barrels can be anywhere from 14″ to over 22″. I like staying in the middle around 18″. A long range scope should be next. Just get one that fits your marker and is comfortable to you. Now you are almost done. Well you can be completely done as your gun is now usable after you add the air to propel the paintballs but upgrades can be both aesthetically pleasing but very useful to the sniper.

The first things to add that help with the look and are functional to the paintball sniper are a bi pod and a buttstock. The bi pod helps with aiming and in holding the weapon steady for long periods of time. A magazine is usually included with your marker but you can carry extras or attach a hopper. The extra mags can be used to carry additional ammo but a hopper can keep from doing that by holding as many as 200 paintballs. A red dot scope can also come in very handy if you find yourself in some close quarters combat. If the scenario complies or if you just want to then you can also get some type of camouflage. The possibilities are endless and can be customized by you. Just remember that those upgrades cost and will increase your total price.

If you are involved in the sport it is important to know about the main paintball gun parts. You need to understand the components of your marker to ensure its successful working and to facilitate its cleaning and upgrading. Beginners can be over whelmed by terms such as: bottom line adaptors, quick disconnect feed necks, CP micro drops and magic regulators. Essentially, most paintball gun parts will fall into one of the following main categories; body; hopper; tank or barrel.

The largest of the paintball gun parts is the main body of the marker. This comprises the bolt and the trigger frame. Bolts help to reduce the ammo breakage caused by a slow feed. The body parts can be detached from one another to incorporate upgrades and accessories. Best not to attempt this until you have become familiar with your weapon.

The body of the gun is fairly standard across the models. The main difference is in the placement of the trigger. The further forward the trigger is placed, the easier the marker is to handle with one hand and the lower the profile of the body. Guns with lower profiles are more successful in the field; markers with large bodies provide a bigger target.
