Thoughts on KJW Mk2 Carbine?

Nope. Not worth it anymore. Poor accuracy, fixed hopup (I believe), long/hard (no comments :p) trigger pull, and crazy high FPS. Not a sniper rifle. More like...A pistol on steroids and Viagra.
If you really want it, there was a post on ASR [quite] a while back which described making the gun usable. Mostly using parts which are now unavailable.
If you don't want to do the research, just don't buy it. You'll be disappointed. In fact, you'll be hard-pressed to find a reliable/consistent gas airsoft sniper rifle.
You may want to look into spring sniper rifles. They'll let you test the "waters" of sniping.

Marui Detonics - 2lbs
Marui FN5.7 - 2lbs
KWC Python - single action 2lbs/ double action 7lbs
Tanaka S&W .500 - single action 1.5lbs/ double action 5lbs
KJW MkII - 11lbs and that's with the trigger bar and hammer already polished and lubed for smoothness. I remember measuring it before the trigger job and it was something around 13-14lbs.
Bottom line, the MkII has a horrible trigger and unsuitable for precision work. I've seen people who have tried it for sniping work though but unless you hold the rifle well down with the supporting hand and clench both butt cheeks you're gonna have a hard time hitting something past 50 yards.

Also the KJW 10/22 GBB. Top scores on everything and still smaller than usual carbines. Also significantly more expensive but still cheaper than most any other GBB rifle.
Other than those there's always the prospect of making a sniping handgun (Tanaka S&W .500, Marui Mk23 SOCOM, Marushin Super Blackhawk etc.)
