Typical "swag"-filled CODsofter with $100 to spend.

I recommend you buy a JG BAR-10.

The reason he said that is that the Bar10s usually have more upgrade parts. I would check the local retailers.

Unfortunately, there are no out of the box M40s. Only stock kits, which are hard to come by, and are generally of **** quality. The Echo1 M28 is a good clone of the M24, and is one of the few bolt action rifles that is combat-effective right out the box.

If you want to snipe in Airsoft you are going to have to spend a ton of money.

No, just buy a good radio and practice sniper skills.

I'm not posing as a stereotypical "ProSofter", it's a mere stereotype of chance. I apologize for offending you, I'm a 35F in the Army.

What unit were you in? The only way to build an M40a3 right now is the fortress stock. Which runs about $400 if you can find it. ARES is supposed to come out with a M40a3 by the end of the year. You can find a few videos of the prototype on youtube.

I would really like an M40A3 or M40A4. I'm tired of the majority of the cheaper rifles as MK.96's or M24 look a likes. It would be nice to see a DSR out there that is actually being used in the majority of the US military.

Says you were a medic/infantry on your profile. I didn't know Medics were issued the M40A3.

That's what I do hahahaha. I like being the one who has to risk his life to save another being. I can sacrifice myself so others can live.

They call that an M40A3 "Style", and what makes an A3/A5 in airsoft is a Remington style bolt action, and the McMillan A4 stock, something nearly nonexistent in airsoft. I'd say wait for the Ares, as they plan to release several different tiers of M40A3 replicas, with one for under $200. I think I remember hearing that they plan to use real McM stocks for the higher tier ones, but since the stocks retail at $500, I don't want to know what it would cost.
