UTG APS2 Type96 Shadow Op Sniper Rifle

Post by Joker on Thu Mar 26, 2009 4:54 pm

I just purchased this bad boy from evike.com. I will be going home this weekend and will be able to put it together and test it out to give a full review of the weapon afterwards. From the reviews that i have read so far on evike it seems to be a pretty solid shooting gun (not the best out there, but then it only costs $110). the following is the specs/review that evike has on their site:

Review
You are looking at the most popular sniper rifle of the year. A clone with such high quality and performance, it is better than the $400 Type96 from Tanaka or Tokyo Marui at fraction of the price. This sniper rifle comes ready with everything you need! Ergonomic grip and stock makes it steady and slick. The APS2 / TYPE96 style rifle are used all over the world in the military by professional snipers. On this sniper rifle, it is so well made we want to customize it for you. For $30 more, we will install a true sniper scope with steel precision ring onto the sniper rifle! (A 3-9 x 40 steel scope, adjustable from 3 to 9 times zoom, not just a regular sniper scope, but a true sniper scope) or a sniper bipod with mount, or both for $55! A must have for all military simulations, precision target practicing and war gaming.

Comparison between the Well/UTG and the AGM/JG type 96.

Manufacture: Both Well and AGM are big manufactures. UTG is a well known importer and AGM / JG are currently the best Japanese clone manufacture in the world.

Exterior look / Weight: They shoot at the same exact power, look almost identical and weights the same, Evike.com Inc. only carry the heavy weight model with great detail and durability.

Power output / Accuracy: Both rifle are top of the line accuracy, same barrel length and same FPS power output. (Around 450 F.P.S. on average with 0.20g bb)

Upgrade Possibility: Both Rifles are capable of mounting very nice scope and bipod. The AGM / JG model's internal is designed by Tokyo Marui so it takes all the VSR-10 upgrade parts.

Looking for upgrade advice on this particular gun, I've put about 200 rounds through it, and am currently shooting around 420 with .2's, I'm having trouble with accuracy, I don't know if its the hop or what.

I'm looking into the PDI hop up unit, but any other hints or where to get that cheaply?

Try heavier bb's... .20's are not a great idea for that high powered of a gun.

lol obviously...just measure fps with .2's, I use .3s in it atm, but am having problems with accuracy and sighting in, planning on using some DIY upgrades I found. though I may go with clay rather than the foam.

yeah my gun also has those not pin point i think its my hop up lol but im sighted in at about a 3inch circle i just took a piece of paper and put a dot in the center shot at it and adjusted accordingly although it helps to place the gun on a stand or something to take the human factor out of the picture.

I have this gun, have had it for a couple years. I just got done upgrading it and am shooting .43's at about 475 fps. with .20's it shot around 650 Sad Almost got me DQ'd from a game. But if you like I can list the upgrades I've done to it.
