Yes,Ive been searching forum for a while and havent found the final conclusion-which one is better,including all attachments possible at level 13.
Obviously,I want to buy one of them permanently,and M95 is out,as I often prefer quick sniping and being relatively close to the heat of the battle.Still,I often find myself at greater distances from target,and get bonus more than 100 if I hit it (I dont know how else I would describe the distance).
I ve played with both of them and had good experience with both...so it didnt help much.
No,I cant wait for L9.
Sorry for my english.

GOL's damage in not enough (IMHO).
M24 is the right choice.

Get m24, if absolute rang is bothering you, get precision barrel, and dont forget at least soft point ammo for ALWAYS 1 headshot kill Big Grin (GOL has a chance to fail agaisnt 110 hp targets, even with mags)

Yes,I did use comparison tool,but I wanted to hear what are the experiences of other people before spending my funds forever (I got 3000 on 21 june and I am not planning to buy any more).
And numbers and reality are often different.
Chronox.,I cant buy precision barrel,I am lv 12. and cant really wait...although,I will get to the needed level once.

Ok, first of all:
http://bfp4f.alchemical.ch/en/_/4901ad1d...09de4f98ae
As you can see, comparing to damage, number of bullets, rate of fire GOL is nerfed M24. Any difference between them is that GOL has a little bit better bullet drop. But, learn with M24 and it's bullet drop and you will be 'pro' with all other rifles. In short - harder start means easier end.

And don't listen all those idiots "oh my god GOL is so epic it can take frag on 378 range", yeah cool, but we all know that most of those "350+ uber pro headshots" are made on friend (hey dude don't move for 5 mins), of afkers in base (shot from crane to spawn point A in Oman).

IMHO M24 all the way till rank 24 and then L96. Peace.

Then take M24. Seriously. Lack of damage on GOL and lack of funds in your account, imo M24 would be the best.

I prefer GOL because my aggressive play style demands a lack of bullet drop as I don't have time to calculate. But it is only useful at medium range. The M24 is probably a better choice.

go with the m24. I bought the GOL and well it was a mistake. I hate getting head shots and only getting 98 damage -_-. Once level 24 get l96a1 best sniper in the game Big Grin

not really, precision barrel is 5k to unlock or so and you better get dev set for that and use viper mags.
replace the M95 with a M24 and you got a beast that is really good until lvl 24

98 damage headshot = A couple of tracers and bye bye

m24 lacks in dammage but has the most bullet drop so i would still say m24 because you say your short range sniper so m24.

OK there seems to be a bit of bad info going around...
M24 has higher damage, and can, by default, instakill a 100HP at any range.
ONLY get the GOL, if you can accompany it with viper mags (which will give it the same affect).
The recon devkit will give you the precision barrel (which is vital to all bolt actions anyway) and the vipers for the GOL for 5k funds.
The reason GOL is a lot better is because it only has about 10% more bullet drop than the m95, whilst m24 has about 80% more.
GOL and m24 both have the same ROF.
So basically, GOL is the way to go unless you are unable to get vipers, in which case the m24 is better.

I would tell him to use m24 because hes a close range sniper and m24 has less time before shots versus gol but if the was long range i would say gol but i still use m24 for ranged sniping

Simple- GOL has better ballistics and slightly more scope zoom, M24 deals more damage and has more rounds per mag.

Overall the M24 is more workable. Its ballistics disadvantage can be made up for via the precision barrel. With the right ammo mods its minimum damage rises high enough to completely assure headshot lethality. Unfortunately, the same simply cannot be said for the GOL. With even the best damage-increasing mods, its minimum headshot damage falls to 108. Against a distant enemy with 110 HP, those two hit points will be the bane of your existence.

Damn shame really, if the GOL's minimum damage were only 2 points higher it would be a pretty competitive option. Naturally it would still be overshadowed by the L96, but then again same could be said of every other recon weapon.

Even with viper mags the GOL is not a guaranteed 1shot kill to the head at all ranges. I guess I'm lucky that I own the GOL +3 because the GOL +3 with viper mags is a 1shot kill to the head at all ranges.
