Not all air rifles are created equal.
Some are better than others.
Air guns for kids are no exception.
Some are fun to shoot and children-friendly while others are more or less than cheap toys.
Let’s find out if the WellFire APS SR-2 sniper rifle is the good, the bad, or the ugly in this review.
WellFire APS SR-2 Sniper Rifle – Guntype
This is a spring-action airsoft gun.
The spring-powered gun is straightforward, simple to use, and can be very fun to shoot.
This gun is a bolt-action gun.
The bolt is surprisingly easy to operate but there is one small problem with the bolt:
Should you pull it backward with your fingers holding the bolt’s top, you will cause the bolt’s handle to fall off when you yank it back.
To prevent this from happening make sure you slide your fingers underneath the bolt’s outer piece,
Then you can pull it back without the threat of the handle coming off.
The Welfare APS SR-2 has full metal, tight bore barrel so it can deliver long-range shooting and last for years to come.
It features a small orange tip at the end to differentiate the airsoft gun from the real firearm.
The stock is made of synthetic in an ergonomic and stylish design.
It’s lightweight and can be adjusted to the best position for your head and neck’s comfort to snipe effectively.
Besides, it has the typical M4 grip (or pistol grip) you find in the real firearm.
Pistol grip orients the hand in a vertical way, similar to the position one would take with a conventional pistol,
So it gives you comfortable and natural holding of the gun.
This gun has a metal and an adjustable bipod which is easily removable.
This bipod allows the user to stand the rifle against virtually any surface for steady shots
And it can be folded away when you need to carry the gun in motion.
This gun comes with a high-quality 3-9x 32 zooming scope.
32 is the diameter of the front lens, measured in millimeters .
3-9 is the magnification power of the scope: it means that the picture you see through the scope can be adjusted 3 to 9 times bigger than the image you see without it.
Elevation and windage are also adjustable via a side-mounted adjustment screw
And the scope comes with its own metal mount and scope rings so it attaches to the rifle’s base mount without any problem.
This scope significantly improves accuracy, especially long-distance targets, and is extremely functional as an effective tool during the target acquisition process.
You should know that the scope alone is worth $40 to $60 when buying separately so you get a great deal with this rifle.
WellFire made the optic rail in the Picatinny style.
A Picatinny rail is almost identical to the weaver rail, except it has a series of ridges located in precise intervals along the rail.
This type of rail gives you lots of benefits: You have more mounting options
And you can swap scopes from one gun the another and use the different scopes in one rifle as well.
And yes, no more worrying about tube length, eye relief, etc since you can place scope rings at any place you want.
