UTG MK96 Shadow Ops Spring Airsoft Sniper Rifle Black

$159.99

5 out of 5- Dont be fooled!,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

This is the UTG MK96! My goodness this gun is a monster. This is truley a sniper, amazing FPS and longer barrel than the M324. When buying consider these things:

PROS
This is a UTG gun not the one of the dozens of other guns that only look like this
Real like weight
Amazing FPS
Sturdy and well built
Good Acuraccy
Comes with neccsary Bi-pod
Easy ajustable hop-up

CONS
No iron sights
Does not come with scope

Please Remember that other websites are selling similiar models of this gun that are cheaper but they are not UTG. Also many of those websites dont have the extra mag and bi-pod so Shortys is still the best deal.

For the customer, buy this plus:
1X bag of KSC .25g bbs
1X bag of KSC .3g bbs
Scope (doesnt need to be super fancy)
Side arm (If you dont have one)

Use one mag for .25 bbs and the other mag for .3 bbs. Coordinate the bb weight with the hop-up system to perfect each shot

For Shortys, please try to:
Lower the price of the UTG M324 if possible
Bring back the ghillie suit
Sell extra mags if they come out

Pistol Rail Interface System

5 out of 5- Uh... Now I can mount a scope on a pistol?,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

Well I guess I cant give this a bad review even if I think this is not that great of a idea. This rail system lets you put everything on your pistol... EVERYTHING! But seriously, how huch stuff can you put on a pistol? Well with this you can deck out your pistol if that your kinda thing. Like I said its personal, some people think this makes your gun "totally cool" or "dumb looking" Eh, this gets the job done. Also like everyone else says, if you put this and a bunch of stuff, you wont be able to fit it in your holster. Whats a side arm that you cant store? If you use this your pistol will have to be your primary.

Modify S110 High Performance Upgrade Spring For AEG

5 out of 5- I like this more than the M120 spring ,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

I know everyone wants the strongest gun possibe, but when upgrading FPS you can decrease RPM and lower the lifespan of the gun. The M110 Spring is great for guns like the CA SAR TAKTIK in which you would not want to sacrfice RPM. The M110 is a perfect balance and I think that this is more practical.

Super Power Upgrade Spring Atoz Armaments Dragunov SVD

$4.99

5 out of 5- Well your friends shouldnt be too suprised ,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

Okay if your interested in this upgrade you are A: A GOOD sniper and B: Have Draganuv. The Draganuv is a great gun very powerful and accurate beacause it is an elite sniper. Back in the day the Draganuv was the the most powerful gun ON shortys. 515 FPS was unmatched by any unupgraded gun. Now Shortys has stocked up on KJW Mk.1s and HFC C96's. These gas guns are just as powerful and gas powered so can be more deadly than the Draganuv at some times. Well this upgrade seems to bring the Draganuv back king of snipers on Shortys. If you are considering buying this upgrade, make sure you are playing against people with guns just as good. If for some reason you are the rich kid on your street who brings this baby in against UTG guns then you are a JERK! If you are playing against great upgraded AEGS like CA,Tm and ICS then go ahead upgrade your gun, you are a sniper so use a sniper!

UTG M324 Gen 5 Spring Airsoft Sniper Rifle Black

$114.99

4 out of 6 people found the following review helpful:

5 out of 5- Still good even with the new Super 9 causing chaos ,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

When the UTG M324 first came out it was a shocker. The gun was extremely sturdy and blew away the sniper compition that was in its class. The Super 9 V2.0 (unupgraded) could not stand up to the M324 unless in the hands of a professional. With 325 FPS this sniper really rained supreme against the Super 9 (Unupgraded). As a starter gun I would not recomend this entirly unless you want to snipe. Yes this is a very good gun but not in a small backyard. Any UTG M87 Shotgun would destroy a sniper at close range with its intimidation and high rate of fire in a close range attack. Now with UHC preupgrading their Super 9s to an amazing 380 FPS the compition becomes very close. If you have a hard time choosing between the two use this refrence chart.

M324
Mags- Cheap and easy to load 25rds (can use mags for different BBs)
Amount of metal- 1/2 metal unbeleivably sturdy
Sights- Just about none(just rails for a scope but I dont use one just aim!)
Weight- Compared to many other airsoft guns this is pretty heavy 6.5 lbs!
Upgrades- I think there is only a teflon Mod but I dont know if that does much
Acurracy- Its accurate but dont expect to pop people from 200 ft away
FPS-325 is above average and hurts too!
Price- 100$ is good comes with 2 mags, sling and okay bipod also is on sale some times
Super 9 V2.5
Mages- 25 rds works but not easy to reload SHELLS=hours of fun but impractical
Amount of metal- Sadly not much but comes with a long full metal barrel
Sights-Very good (MUST take out the back part)
Weight- Very light 4.5 lbs good for aiming but not for realism or durabilty
Uprgrades- I know there are a lot but I cant name much
Accuracy-This gun is a little more acurate than the M324
FPS- When UHC pumped this gun up to 380 I had to buy it- HURTS ALOT!
Price: 80$ Very good deal-comes with stick mage,10 shells and rotary mag!

Overall the UTG M324 is a amazing gun and you will not be disapointed. At one time this sniper was unmatched yet now UHC has upped the competion. Personally I have both and perfer the Super 9 but only by a little bit. Also a important peice of inside info-When I went to the acutal Shorty's warehouse they said that they showed UTG the new Super 9 so I wouldnt be suprised if UTG brings out another masterpiece

5 out of 5- I just saved a lot of money,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

I bought a CA Tactical M16 recently and these are a necessity. I was considering the S.P.C version but settled with the Tactcal version because of looks and price. Now I can put rails for a cheaper price at any time I want. Now I can put accesories when I want to and take them off when I want a more stream-lined hand guard

Spare 20 rd Mag UHC MP5-SD3 Spring

$1.99

4 out of 5- Gah! These Mags Are Annoying ,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

These magazines are okay, if you put the rubber band around the magazine they stay in place. Here are the Pros and Cons

Pros
1. When in the gun, these mags load very well
2. You get 40 rds Uh... 40>20
3. Mags slide in very nice (not much of a Pro)
4. On the side you can see how much ammo you have (The loading spring)
5. Okay price

Cons
1. No BB stopper
2. NEED rubber bands or tape (Rubber bands are better)
3. Cant take out the mag while loaded (BBS spray everywhere)
4. Mags are all plastic but what do you expect its a spring gun so not really a con

Overall these mags are okay. If you rig it with the rubber bands you will be set. I guess 8$ for a mag is okay but for this quality it should be 5$ in my opinion

5 out of 5- You dont need KSC in a low quality gun ,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

Well KSC makes great BBs. I use their .2 for all my AEGS and snipers. KSC makes their BBs less likley to jam up and are more accurate. One thing I do not understand is why you would want to buy expensive BBs for a low class electric. If the gun is below average why bother to put expensive BBs. Well I guess these do help a lot...

Spare 22 rd Mag UHC M9 Spring

4 out of 5- Yeah its 15 rds more ,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

Yeah these mags work great but they dont hold as much as the original mag in the UHC M9. If you intend on buying a spring pistol with good spare mags, consider the UHC 1911 which sells great 22rd spare mags.

5 out of 5- Like a box of chocolates you dont know what you will get,
Reviewer: treade from scotch plains, NJ

Ive held this gun before and yes if is a monster. The ABS is VERY tough and there is alot of metal in this gun. I like this gun because it has amazing power. No really its is POWERFUL. With green gas you ARE going to reach 500 FPS. If thats too powerful then use 134a gas then you have 350 FPS. If for some reason you want more power use red gas and you will get FPS up to 600 and higher. I love the fact that you can pretty much choose how much FPS you want out of your gun by selecting the right gas. If you want to go all out get the HFC C96 which has a more solid build than this. Here are my PROS and CONS

PROS
High and above average FPS (depending on gas)
Light weight
Only $100
Very sturdy body
Has rails
Nice and compact
Amazing effective range 180!!

CONS
The HFC C96 has real wood and all metal for only $50 more with the same stats
Very short barrel
Can be over power-ful with the corrrect gas
Some people might not like the look but thats all personal

If you want a Gas sniper with a more traditional sniper look, consider the KJW M700 take-down sniper. It has almost the same FPS and looks like every other spring sniper but gas powered. I recently went to the actual Shortys walk-in store and I saw that sniper there so they might start to sell it!
