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 spring action airsoft gun. Spring-powered gun is straightforward, simple to use and can be very fun to shoot. (For more on 5 types of air rifles you need to know before buying, see this post.)
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 of when you yank it back. To prevent this from happening make sure you slide your fingers undereath the bolt’s outer piece, then you can pull it back without the threat of handle coming off.
The Wellfire APS SR-2 has full metal, tight bore barrel so it can deliver longrange shooting and last for years to come. It features small orange tip at the end to differentiate airsoft gun with 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 metal and adjustable bipod which is easily removable. This bipod allows user to stand the rifle against virtually any surface for steady shots and it can be fold 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 milimetter. 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 side-mounted adjustment screw and the scope comes with its own metal mount and scope rings so it attaches to rifle’s base mount without any problem. This scope significantly improves accuracy, especially long distance target, and is extremely functional as a effective tool during target acquisition process. You should know that the scope alone is worth $40 to $60 when buying separately so you get 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 scope from one gun the another and use different scope 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.

The price for Wellfire APS SR-2 sniper rifle is about 100 dollars. Its price is a little bit high in my opinion, but the quality of this gun is worth the money.
There are couples of different listings with different prices but the listing I found with the lowest price is even lower than the prices on other e-commercial sites.
The WellFire APS SR-2 is the great gun for kids and teenagers. It will make your children happy if you buy this for them as Christmas gift or birthday present.
