I need a good sniping gun, something powerful, but not too heavy. Does anybody know where to get one, preferably not too expensive? (I'm not rich, y'know...)

P.S. Also, I saw a new CPS 2500 going for around £60 on Ebay, and also a best offer Monster... Was I stupid to let them go?

:crazy: :goofy: :wacko: :cps3000:

Welcome! Ebay is probably your best bet here. You can find many old water guns there and probably just what you need if you wait long enough.

That monster you saw, are you sure it was a Monster or a Monster XL? Monsters are more sought after than monster XLs for some reason.

The only really good one in stores is the WW Blazer. You can get it online at amazon.com as well.

Only if the price was a buy-it-now, I'm sure it would have sky-rocketed anyway.

There's a section on the site about the best guns for different types of positions.

I have to agree w/ Stencil. As a cps 1200 ethusiast, I have to say that that gun is a sniper's choice, especially if k-modded.

£60,- for a CPS2500 is way to much, judging from the £-designation, you probably found the auction of the seller "Super Soaker Store". I would not suggest bidding on those, as the seller has quite a high minimum sales price. I consider it a bit of a rip off, as the seller actually bought them for a fraction of that price... but I guess that is commerce :suspicious:. In any case patience is your best bet here, as those guns are generally a lot cheaper in the autumn/winter. I also saw a couple of CPS2500s currently being offered in the US. Depending on where you live, this may or may not be interesting. Whether or not a CPS1200 is suitable I do not know, as I do not own, or have used, this gun. However, the shape of the cps 1200 does at first glace appear to make it a bit less suitable for effective aiming (somewhat similar design as the CPS1500/1700, which are also not ideal for direct aiming). Straight barrel guns are far better suited for sniping, however they are generally more expensive than a CPS1200 (in the case of a CPS2000, a whole lot) and harder to get. Judging from the review of ZOCCOZ of the CPS1200, it packs more power than was generally assumed, more in any case than its successor, the CPS2100. The CPS2100 still packs a far bigger punch than today's soakers though, so depending what you want in a gun, this might also be suitable. So if you want a reasonably priced effective gun, the CPS1200 or CPS2100 might fit the bill. If, however, you were willing to spend a bit more on more powerful guns, I would recommend the CPS2500 as an all-round high performance gun. :cps2500:

The CPS 2500 is too big.

CPS 1200 is the perfect size.

Rarely do many people have the exact same idea of which gun is a perfect size for them. My perfect size happens to be, ironically at that, ~CPS 2500 sized. Please make sure that when you state your opinion on a certain gun that you make sure you state that it is your own personal opinion and not an end-all fact. Because that just annoys people, especially if they've seen plenty of users who do that.

You realize that the 1000 and 1200 are essentially are the same thing, right? They'd both be very well suited. Just making sure.
