That's an interesting point, kwerty, but it is slightly counter-balanced in the slinger case by the fact that >100% accuracy (basically an inevitability due to quantized gear) and, more significantly, Illegal Mods substantially favor gunslingers over snipers. I doubt it's as much as the 204 vs 198 differences in the basic attack scaling, but it's there. On even gear footing, gunslingers should always out-parse snipers on average over time.
