Isolate your target and shoot with precision using the Sniper Rifle for Wii. This plastic sniper rifle possesses a very life-like mold, yet its white plastic color prevents it from being mistaken for an actual rifle. To operate, place the Wii Remote (with or without Wii MotionPlus adapter connected) in the top cradle of the gun and the Wii Nunchuk in its outer stock. After attaching the controllers, manage the wires by using the cable slot and close the top covers. On the front piece of the magazine are buttons marked C and Z that allow you to simultaneously press the corresponding buttons on the Wii Nunchuk. Pull the trigger and you’ll press the B button located under the Wii Remote. For added effect, a sniper scope and front barrel stand attaches to the rifle for pure cosmetic appeal, not for actual gaming accuracy. Building on the “coolness-factor” of its appearance is the aesthetic possibilities created by the inter-changeable barrel / magazine tube and stock. Take off the stock and sport the “sawed off” look ala Terminator 2 or remove the front barrel and you’ll have a compact blaster. Loaded to the teeth with these features, this heavy-duty piece of video game artillery is ready to wreak vicious obliteration! Compatible with the following Nintendo Wii Games: • Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 • Medal of Honor: Vanguard • Resident Evil 4 • Ghost Squad • Ultimate Duck Hunting

I think so based on the amount of fun I will have with it.
Is it perfect - no. It does give you the sensation of using a rifle while playing. All the games I've tried recognize it as Wii zapper, as its just a physical case for the Wiimote and Nunchuck.
Reality/short comings. It has that cute scope on top, can't use it, would have been fun. The "cabella orange rifle" I am guessing has the same limitation. Since you cant calibrate its view and that of the onscreen "sight" its just for looks. I tried with my sensor bar above and below, no luck on having onscreen site appear within my field of view.
The front barrel pulls out, and you'll probably need to do that, it does affect if the sensor bar is below the TV.
The Wiimote sits a bit back, and sees through a window, narrowing the viewing field. Might have been nice if some way to raise or lower the back of the Wiimote, because if you aim gun at center of screen, that is not where the onscreen "site appears", its below or above.
The trigger is a bit narrow, so after a bit of game play, your trigger finger will get sensitive, or I'm just a wuss.
Easy to take Wiimote in and out, nunchuck, not the same ease, but I leave my chuck in the most of the time so far.
I haven't seen a Wii stand alone rifle in stores, so the free shipping, no sales tax and door step delivery - I found worth it.
The second flaw is the design of the grip + trigger. The grip is too wide and squared off, I'm not sure who's hand they had in mind when designing it but how many grips are completely squared off? Not very comfortable at all.
3rd issue is the trigger distance from the grip. It's so far from the grip that my hand strains to squeeze the trigger causing pain after prolonged use.
I'm returning my unit to amazon tomorrow as the Nun-chuck didn't fit right within the unit ( defective ). I'm going to look for another one to get as I need a gun that utilizes the front trigger on the wii controller to be able to play house of the dead.
Objective: Approximate 1:1 accuracy via simple line-of-sight aiming.
- Minimum 10 feet between the Wii Remote and the Wii's sensor bar (maximum about 15 feet). TV, sensor bar, and player should be centered precisely. Don't step away from this centered firing position.
- Remove any accessory/extensions from the rifle that may obstruct the Wii Remote's view of the sensor bar. There shouldn't be any unusual problems with existing Wii Pointer tracking in the first place.
- `Ghost Squad` and `The House of the Dead 2&3 Return` are the ONLY two shooting games on Wii that calibrate properly, easily, and reliably. You will not get good results in other games due to their limited design, options, and/or their technical shortcomings.
- Be calm and aim carefully. Wii knows how much you twitch, and there's always a slight delay between your movement and the final shot/cursor location.
4/5 stars because the handle is poorly designed, difficult to grasp, and makes the Nunchuk harder to reach (I thought the Sure Shot Rifle had a good handle, but a poor trigger mechanism), and the thinner diameter in the middle of the scope reduces direct visibility. The trigger works much better than the previous Sure Shot Rifle and Buzz Shotgun designs, and the C/Z buttons have better placement. In the end, the product is a strong match with Ghost Squad's weapon selection, but clearly has room for improvement. On the software side, the applications for any "good" Wii gun accessory are very limited -- for now, "arcade gameplay" is their rightful place. Frankly, gun accessories shouldn't be used with FPS's (and similar action games) until the games are properly designed to take advantage of the accessories. As many users have pointed out, they've tried it and wasted their time/money.
My workaround for the handle is: I don't use it -- my thumb rests on the side while my middle finger supports the ring under the trigger. Holding the foregrip, which holds the rifle against my shoulder, actually does most of the hard work. For practical purposes, the rear "lens" of the scope should've included some kind of printed sight posts to aid sighting in conjunction with the front crosshair (I just used a marker to paint a dot in the center of my lens).
