Scopes and bipods are cool looking but not useful. They just add weight to your marker. Consider a 12-14 inch J&J or Lapco barrel. Some of the members here will also recommend Apex tips on barrels.  Anyone of the barrels or tips I mentioned start around $30.  Consider spending the money you had saved from not buying a scope and bipod on a HPA tank.
Innocence proves nothing
FUAC!!!!!

If you're looking to upgrade your marker to the 'sniper' setup for looks- there's any number of sites out there that will have what you need. Don't expect these aesthetic upgrades to make your marker the super-accurate sniper rifle that you may be imagining. Keep in mind, that even with an excellent aftermarket barrel (like the J&J mentioned above) you're still shooting a lightweight, liquid-filled projectile from a smooth bore, which doesn't lend itself to great accuracy at distance.
Some guys swear by the apex barrels and flatlines for greater distances, but I've seen the videos they post online claiming to 'snipe' their opponents, and I've had the same amount of success without them. Develop skills, don't rely on equipment to get your distances.

With that being said, a scope is great to look at, but it isn't going to be a very useful piece of equipment. There are tons of options out there for red-dot sights, and whatnot which will do all you need them to.

I have no experience with putting a bipod on a marker, I never sat still long enough for it to be necessary or useful.

Again, if you're looking for 'the look' then shop around a bit online, there's tons of retailers out there who will help you out.
