    Bit random, but I'd like to know what Sniper rifle you all prefer, or like.

    Personally my favorite is the Dragunov SVD:

    Barret 50. Cal. Even though you can't aim worth sh*t after you shoot it.

    It would probably break your shoulder if you shot it standing up. :lol:

    I like the Barret M95, M40, and M20. I don't think the M14 counts as a sniper rifle, but if it does it's my favorite.

    This is by far the best and most useful sniper rifle out there in my opinion. Developed for SWAT and military as a light sniper rifle with the range and accuracy of the Barret. This is just my opinion though, the barret is a bad ass piece of hardware. On a good cold morning with no wind I am accurate to 1250 meters with this rifle and by accurate I mean I can get a bullet in the area of a paper plate sometimes:lol: that isn't an every time thing for me. And no if you are wondering I do not own this rifle I just have had the opportunity to shoot one several times, I am saving my money up for one however.

    That'll take the new[er] .338 Mag - that's a pretty impressive round - like 1700 lb/ft @ ~1750 fps out to 1000 yards (and effective s good bit beyond that).

    [edit]

    FWIW, I'm not a "gun nut" or anything :D

    There's a few folks who seem to genuinely know what they're talking about from hand-ons experience (not sure if it's private sector, LE, miltary, etc.).

    There are also quite a few people who just regurgitate specifications from Wikipedia or are speaking in the context of a videogame :lol:

    Hmm..I've always liked the .308 sniper rifle but nothing too special about it..

    The Dragonuv SVD is by far my favorite sniper rifle. It's such a beautiful weapon. Seems to me that the OP and I have something in common.

    @ DT- You're absolutely correct..A lot of people spit back info they learned off of games or Wiki. Others just instantly like other firearms like the M-16 or AK-47 because they're such commonly known guns in the world, without knowing how beautiful and powerful they actually are...I say that if you've never fired the weapon, the person really shouldn't talk much about it. Right?

    Eh...I don't know how you can base an opinion of weapons off of a video game such as COD4..Sure you can learn basic knowledge like the caliber or the range or the accuracy but what does it matter until you've pulled the trigger yourself?

    someone can know everything about a gun, the only thing pulling its trigger does is let you know how it feels when shot.

    Love me the barrett m82!!!

    One of the reasons being because it brings me back to the days I used to play America's Army. Got a hold of the gun on a bridge map & was picking people off like crazy, then I needed to make room on my computer... :(

    50 cal's arn't anything "crazy" if your use to large load guns. Specially the M82, its nasty sure, but not nearly the worst 50 cal. I've ever shot. Worst "kick" still has to be in the large load shotgun family 2 gauge and bigger. Rifles have always had a pretty clean recoil to them you just have to get use to it in the first couple. Large shotguns just kick your arse every time!

    My uncle had me try his 2 guage out when I was 10 years old had a black and blue sholder for a month! It knocked me back into him and him back into the house 4 feet behind us "290 lb man". Talk about ouch! ha ha

    Besides that no way a 50 cal for sniper rifle. Sure its got the range and power but its not used for sniping at all! Thats the gun you use to take an engine out of a truck not one target a.k.a sniping It's a scare gun and it does an excellent job at that!

    For real sniping in any form for me would be the good ole M40 .308-.338 heavy modified and when you figure in the weight, range,accuracy, not to mention it can be customized to suit your specific needs, that would be my 1st choice with what is out today. Not sure who makes the best modified sniper versions of it i've only shot the plain jane Army M24 version so far,but still would be my first choice from what I have seen of the different versions out. Good luck ever getting an invite to shoot a marine snipers gun. :lol: or any gun a marine owns for that matter

    2nd would be the in-between guns like the .408 chey or the smaller version of the 50cal barrets the .416 barret... Haven't had a chance to shoot eaither yet but seen them in action. Seem to be the differance between "overkill" and "perfect kill" still pretty heavy guns.
