What SLR for a more aggressive recon play style?

So far the only one I specd is the Model 8, and I'm not really a fan due to the slow reload. I kinda dig the RSC, but much like the Model 8, it has a 3HK at longer ranges which sucks. I can see that the ZH29 is always a 2HK and has a detachable mag plus decent specs, but it fires the slowest out of all of them. I'm not really in a position to just try guns out with specs as my only source atm are daily orders.

Model 8 has the highest RoF (with spec, which is the obvious choice), while the RSC is basically a Model 8 with an extra round and detachable mags, at the cost of some rate of fire.

The S1906 has exactly the same relationship to the ZH-29, in that the latter gets an extra round and detachable mags at the cost of RoF.

I find the best to be the 1906 with the 2x scope. Easy to aim with, recoil not as obnoxious as the Model 8, quick reload while retaining good aim, and decently fast.

Yeah what the others say is defintiely true. I do think there are a lot arguments that can be made for the three contestants. The Model 8 has the highest ROF, which is good to creep into the midrange largely dominated by the semi-autos. The RSC has one bullet more which can be a huge advantage in some cases. Also the Selbstlader's 2x scope is something to be considered if it has a faster draw time, than the 3x scopes. You could also make a point for iron-sights though as they give you a 1,5x zoom and are fastest to draw.

Personally I would go for the Model 8 with ironsights I guess.

The lack of scope glint on the 2x scope is also something to consider; I really like the 2x scopes.

Well, unless you are shooting at long range, scope glint doesn't matter. So here it doesn't matter for an aggressive playstyle. Tbh I prefer model 8 with iron sight, those weapons have bad hipfire accuracy so you need to ADS really fast.
