Is this considered a Sniper or a LMG?

Recommended Posts

Just in case the link doesn't work here is the full name of the rifle 


6mmProShop M82 Gen 2 Custom Long Range Airsoft AEG Sniper Rifle


You can find it in the heavy weapons section or in sniper rifles under 6mmproshop on Evike.

Looking at the ruleset, this would be problematic to say the least..


1. If by “sniper†you mean the bolt/single action with 100ft MED...then no, it wouldn’t qualify with AMS (it’s not a single action). It’s real-world application is a sniper rifle, so unless AMS changes the rules to allow semi-auto (see point 3 for more on that) sniper rifles...it would be out.


2. It’s for sure it would never come close to a LMG/SSW...no box mag, it’s real world application doesn’t support full-auto and your not going to find anywhere where this would be considered one (airsoft hi-cap mags do not mean a thing).


3. This may be able to used as a DMR if you meet the FPS...if you make it mechanically incapable of full-auto (i.e. putting a set screw on the selector switch) and if your able to get approval to run a hi-cap as an exception due to the type of mag and avalabilty for mid-caps (which I don’t think they make) and if you get approval to run what should be a long-range sniper as a DMR...which in real world application is a conflict.


4. You mag be able to use this a standard rifle if you meet the FPS and get an exception made on the hi-cap mag.


So going strictly by the ruleset...you couldn’t use this without having some sort of exception being made on one thing or another.
