Currently one of the top sniper rifles in our arsenal, the WELL MK96 offers exceptional build quality and performance. Even though some competing rifles are able to produce the same amount of power, no rifle is even remotely close when it comes to the overall feel and function of MK96.
The unique stock of the MK96 is made up of two ABS plastic halves which are bolted together around an 8 inch metal bedding block which acts as a chassis for the barrel group. Weighing in at 9.5 lbs and measuring close to 4 feet long this sniper rifle is not for the weak. Most of the weight is contributed to the high metal content of this rifle. The stock also features a rear monopod and the abilities to fold the back half of the stock in for transport.
Metal parts include: barrel, receiver, bolt, bolt handle, safety switch, trigger, magazine release, magazine, front sling mount, rear sling mount, bi-pod quick release unit, monopod, bi-pod adapter, and bi-pod.
This rifles real steel counterpart was made for extreme cold weather use so you will see on this airsoft version that it has an oversized bolt handle and trigger guard for use with heavy gloves. A trigger safety as well as a thumb safety is featured on the MK96. The center section of the trigger must be depressed in order for the main trigger to be pulled. This rifle was designed to be scoped so it is not equipped with iron sights. It features a 7.5 inch weaver rail along the top of the receiver for mounting a scope or red dot sight. A nice feature is that the magazine has a spring loaded assist to help eject it upon moving the magazine release lever. It also has a bi-pod quick release adapter. This railed adapter is pushed into the opening at the front of the stock and locks into place. With this adapter you can mount the included folding bi-pod or an optional rail mounting laser or flashlight. The cheek rest is adjustable in height and the stock can be adjusted in length by removing spacers under the rubber butt pad.
The Hop Up is adjusted with an allen wrench which is inserted into the magazine well just forward of the magazine release.
This is not your average sniper rifle. With a muzzle velocity approaching 500 fps the MK96 means business! With an adjustable Hop Up system that allows you to use several different weights of high polished BBs and a precision brass inner barrel the MK96 is capable of taking out a man sized target at 200+ feet! However, even with this kind of power the action is smooth and quite easy to cock so you can rapidly cycle the next round into the chamber while keeping the rifle on target. For best accuracy we recommend using BBs weighing no less than .28g. Lighter BBs were noted to be somewhat unstable and inconsistent due to the high velocity which this rifle fires them at.
Included with the 3-9x40 scope, tri rail quick release bi-pod adapter, weaver rail bi-pod, speed loader and a sling.
: The bolt handle on this rifles action has a transfer pin which actuates the handles locking mechanism. This pin is visible on the front side of the handles base when the bolt action is back. DO NOT depress the pin when the bolt action is back as this will release the handle and the small transfer pin can fall out.
