Hey FJ, I came here for help, I tried 4chan but no one knew what to do. Sorry, I'll post something funny later but I really need the help. I just recently got a L96 Airsoft Sniper off my friend for free and I've never owned a sniper before. I tried sighting it in but every time it just hits the target at completely random places every time. Here's some background info on it. The barrel twists a little even when in place, maybe the threads are stripped i dunno. The rail was loose and i tightened it until it was solid the the frame. The spring was upgraded to go to 550fps, noting else was changed. There was a ******** of dirty grease in it (maybe he was using the wrong bolt oil) but even after I cleaned that AND the barrel it still shot ****** up. Can anyone help me with this? Do I need a new inner barrel? Where should I go and who should I ask for help?

1. buy a real l96
2. remove or paint orange tip (crucial)
3. kidnap random people and lock them in a warehouse
4. attack triggers to 2 buttons and line the 2 snipers on both sides pointing at victims head
5. tell victim one will leave a very small welt, and the other will leave bigger one
6. ??????
or you could just post this on an airsoft forum but whatever man

Spring or gas? Either there is no gas or the spring is old and ****** . But seriously, next time check google or airsoft forums. Not FUNNY junk.

It's a spring and yes I already apologized for that lack of humor in the description, I tried google forums already and nothing, I tried airsoft forums, even 4chan, this was kinda my last option so can you cut me some slack bro?

The barrel isn't riffled so there's no spin on the BB when it's fired, so it loses accuracy. Like older muskets from the Revolutionary war. Yah dig?

Hmm this could be why, I'm thinking possibly the spring is too powerful for the internal components because nothing else was changed. When I looked through the barrel after cleaning it I didn't see it was riffled, I may need a new inner barrel but what about the threading making the barrel twist and wobble?

That was the first place I looked dude... Nothing helped :/ Then I tried 4chan and now I'm trying here and seriously my gun is Olive Drab, not Black, it doesn't have aids.

If you're using light BB's then try heavier ones (.20g or so)
I have an airsoft sniper too and heavy BB's make a huge difference

you could try [url deleted] for help/parts if you do need a new barrel. if the gun has hop-ups try adjusting it to the proper settings. but remember that its an airsoft gun that shouts round bullets, they will curve a little if you far away.

I was sighting it in from like 6 meters, and the url was deleted :/ I adjusted the hop-up too. still off. it shoots completely randomly.

theres probably a reason he gave it to you for free...maybe because its a hunk of **** ?
User avatar #18 to #10 - Sirdorova (03/06/2011) [-]
It was a trade off, I gave him my Tippmann 98 custom Platinum. It's not a piece of **** , my friend has the exact same sniper and his works gloriously though he got his brand-new. Maybe the former owner of mine just ****** **** up. It has potential I just need to fix it up.

The barrel should have a locking ring (kinda like a nut that you twist againist the upper reciever) if not try getting a large hose clamp and putting it around the barrel and the body stock and tighten until the barrel is firmly in place. Get a rifled barrel for increased accuracy, otherwise its like throwing a knuckleball and it drops quickly and any amount of wind will throw it off. Follow the basic fundementals of shooting: sight picture the same everytime (put a regular bb on the stock with tape so you put you cheek in the same place every time) steady aim, trigger squeeze and breathing. These two work together, as you let your breath out slowly squeeze the trigger and it should be a surpise when it fires do NOT pull the trigger.USARMY
