Buffalo - get it from demon hunter quest. It's nasty and powerful but lacks a scope. You get used to it. My personal favorite.
Muckamuck - it's a random drop/chest item. The Skookum variety has crazy damage but I like the Tumtum. Get crit hits and you're doling out stupid, stupid damage.
Hawkeye - 120 seraph crystals at the hunter's lodge. Awesome crit bonus and decent stability.
Fremington's Edge - drops from third assassin in southpaw. Decent stats, comes in all elements, but has the best zoom in the game. Makes it even easier for crits.

Is it obvious I really, really like Jacobs snipers? Dahl burst first and Vladof rapid fire snipers waste ammo. Hyperion with their stability issues make them almost always useless. Maliwan is okay if you like elemental guns. I prefer just aiming for the critical zones and laying them out in one or two shots. Just some opinions. Have fun. Sniping is a blast in this game.

There's no "best rifle in game", there's a best rifle for each especific situation. If you wanna be a marksman in this game, you're gonna need a complete set.

I use:

- Lyuda when i'm in heat, "no time to think" situation.
- Tumtum skulmasher for medium and close distance. The buffalo is an option.
- Skookum hawk eye (best then tumtum, tested) for extreme long distance with easy critical hit foes. For tricky critical hit enemies, a tumtum diaub (I don't have a tumtum muckamuck).
- Dooby moloco (eletrical) to take down shields
- Elefant gun, firing from the hip in the last second of deception, close quarter (just for fun, is awsome).

IMO the best sniper is the Pitchfork, I use that thing almost all the time.

I forget which one I have, but I've also got a crazy-good E-Tech sniper rifle on my Mechromancer. The bullets ricochet, but with her "Close Enough" skill, the richochets generally hit an enemy. It also has a high rate of fire.
