First off I have a T9 that I love. Tiberius just came out with the T9.1 first strike and regular setup combined. Also any Lapco tip (including the Apex ready tip $20) will work on the stock T9 barrel.

Wow that T68 looks nice. You should put up a quick thread explaining it and call it "How To: Make a Cheaper T9 Longbow". :)

Here is the link to the original thread I posted regarding my T68 sniper rifle...

...a little over $200. It is quieter than my 98C M4 SOPMOD/Sniper, and more accurate.

Don't bother with sniping or even shooting at someone over 100 feet away. Even if you do manage to land a lucky hit unless you hit his marker or his mask(or something hard that won't give) it will most likely be a bounce. Even with the most expensive paint. What you want to do is get in close. You need a marker that will let you be small, quick, and light.

Barrel over 14 inches: you're doing it wrong
Steel/metal tank: you're doing it wrong
non-electro hopper: you're doing it wrong
Remote line: you're doing it wrong

Reason being is when your that close you want to be very aggressive, if you leave any openings your probably going to get shot out. A long barrel makes whipping the gun around in brush very difficult and it doesn't give you any range whether shorter or longer. (it is more efficient though, but only by a fraction, so it isn't worth the handicap it gives you.

Oh, and don't worry about noise, there is no paintball gun made that can't be heard a mile away.

I agree with the above poster minus the remote line comment. Remote lines can be useful depending on the set-up you have.

To me the best sniper is the Guy who isnt a sniper at all.

If you can help flank, rush, spot, cover fire, lead, suggest idea's, Counter flank, create a Dead zone for the opposing players, and just plain be versatile Thats be best sniper to me.

When I got my automag I sure did have dreams about turning it into a longbow sniper death set-up. but after playing with it a few times I just went with a few things.

1) A 68/4500 tank. Because it is perfect size for a 6'1 guy, and it allows me to keep air on marker so playing both sides of a bunker is doable.

2) Halo Hopper - Same reason, Versatility, I figured a 21 round mag is great ( sure would be fun) but if someones going to hit me, its not because of my hopper.

3) winchester 50 round hopper, Once again, mainly for fun and self challenge. but im not limiting my playstyle, only tweaking it. small hopper is light, which allows me to play MORE agressive becuase I can get into tight spots and still have a small target.

If you set-up your equipment to do everything. Your already a sniper.

Edit: I think someone has this as a quote on the forum at one time:

After you get everything you wanted, after you become all the wonder people want to be, after you play with your dream marker, you relise that all you need was what you started with. You come full circle. You go back to the start.

I think That applies here, Dont get a marker becuase it will make you a sniper. Make yourself a sniper and Let your marker fill in the gaps.
