Well mb07?

Alright, so I'm not what you would call an airsoft "veteran," but I am fairly experienced in most guns. I've been playing for about 3-4 years and I currently own a Echo 1 Phantom (AUG), a UTG Shadow Ops sniper, a G&G Combat Machine, and a SOCOM Gear R700.

I love sniping and the UTG is great, but too powerful for field use, so I got the R700 and have lost liking for it ever since I got it. Its alright, but the springs seem to be a little weak and the whole feel of it doesn't suit me the greatest. So I came up with an idea...

I want to sell my R700 for $105 (due to my custom paint job and bipod and bipod mount), and then use that money to buy a WELL MB07. I was looking into the WELL MB07 with the fake wood and the fluted barrel and such. Here's a link to a picture http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_inf...oducts_id=8372 .

Anyway, I was wondering what you guys think of the swap in terms of the differences between the two, good and bad. I've heard bad things about the MB07 on a few sites and they say things such as there's too much lubricant in the trigger and mag and piston that its gums it up, that the mag has lots of problems, one person said they received their gun and it was in a plastic sealed bag full of dirt, and a couple people say that the piston and O-rings degrade and mess up quite often. But I would like to hear from your guy's opinion also.

Thanks, Renegade Blade

Well you could always swap out for a stronger spring, a better piston, and a metal spring guide. Thats what I did for my Echo 1 ASR and it turned out great. It is a very easy upgrade and I am sure there are plenty of parts and DIY guides online.

Then start using heavier bbs in your upgraded R700 and you will have an accurate sniper. If you want to take it even further, you could change the hop up and barrel to make it even better.

I would prefer to not keep the R700. It just doesn't suit me, I realize that the MB07 is very similar, but I feel it would just feel better to me. Don't ask why, just my intuition i suppose.

Have you tried looking into gas snipers or a semi-auto sniper system?

Sorry mate, but there's no way I'd ever put any money into a gas sniper, and I'm not very keen on the semi-auto thing either. I have looked around but I like the bolt-action systems a lot better.

I have a UTG l96, which is nearly the same thing as the shadow ops. If you have ever tore yours all the way down to work on it you (hopefully) should know its REALLY easy to pull the bolt out of the rear of the gun.
This makes it incredibly easy to change the spring in it. I haven't changed the spring like this for a few years now, but when I played in Tulsa i did for different games.
If you sell the R700 and buy a weaker spring for the UTG, you will bu up some $$, instead of buying another gun.

In reply to Gopher, I don't want a MB03. Thanks for the offer anyway.

In reply to hotballz87, I'm asking about whether or not this is a fair trade. I love the Shadow Ops, but I'm not going to put in a lesser powered spring and I want two snipers. I consider the Shadow Ops to be a support sniper in the same category as the Barrets due to its heavy, long nature. I want another one thats lighter and more versatile so that I can combat snipe along with being able to have some decent accuracy at around 150+ ft.

the m700 is one I liked as a smaller, but still dead on basr. I never owned one my self, but have used one, with a shorter barrel on it. the gun was about the leingth of an m4 with the stock extended and a 6" silencer on the front, and that's not too bad imo.
what I would do if I was in your shoes would be to find the look you want, then find the brand that parts are easiest to find. that's why I bought my utg.
