Best SOUNDING Sniper rifle.

It's one thing to have a nifty 'looking' rifle, but it drives me insane to find one that I like and then find out after Binding it to me that it sounds like the muffler of a 1973 Pinto.

Anyone got any decent 'sounding' rifles? Maybe something with a traditional Star Wars sound rather than 'boom'? I'd particularly enjoy a sniper-style silencer-equipped rifle..

Any suggestions?

My issue is that I get great looking ones that sound very off. More like air leaking out of a balloon than a Pinto

Also had great sounding ones, but that looked like they were cobbled together from spare Pinto parts.

Maybe I'm picky - but I'd really like one with a more authentic *crack* Would it be asking to much to "laserize" a 30-06 or .308 shot sound effect?

The best I've found is the J-21 Rotary Sniper Rifle, from The Foundry.

To me, it sounds similar to the guns on the Slave 1.

It does, I used it for awhile but I didn't really like the look of it.

I love the way this sounds when Series of Shots goes off. Sounds like a shotgun.
It's been my only rifle since as far back as I can remember.

I keep looking at the fancy new rifles like the gree one, but I ultimately just stick with my old reliable. it matches my outfit - although with dyeing in 2.1, that could change

I use the cartel SR (the pack ones that come in 3 styles) in the Aurek style and that sounds decent. The thing about SR's is that Snipe and ambush have their own sounds. so if your playing Sharpshooter your hearing 40% of the time a special sound effect.
