"This was the second AEG I've bought. And it is the second best one I've had(The first being my Tokyo Marui RECCE carbine) And I have to say. This thing is worth every penny you pay for it. Even considering that its market down $70 compared to other sites that sell it. Performance is good, it's definitely lipo ready. Now let's get to the pros and cons.

Pros:
Good ROF. Especially on am 11.1v (Thanks captain obvious)
Accurate up to and slightly past 120 feet. (using .2s)
Top of the line finish. As expected from VFC.
Solid. Absolutely no wobble whatsoever. Not even the butt stock.
Full travel mock bolt w/ bolt catch. Because it looks cool and feels natural when you rack it. Although it doesn't have any effect on the performance it's great.
Unique, it's an HK417. One of the few 7.62 AR designs on the market.

Cons:
Large buttstock and buffer tube. This makes it nearly impossible to find a aftermarket buttstock replacent and buffer tube sling mount. (I used zip-ties instead). Amd the large stock is a little cumbersome. Even IF you are a large person.

That's about it. Great gun. It's literally a steal if you buy it here than from any other site or store.

"This is my favorite gun no matter what I say but I'm gonna go deeper into the problems i ran into while getting this gun. Still its a perfect gun.

I got this gun and packaging is great, quality is great, metal is perfect, no feeding problems or internal problems blah blah blah five stars.

Please note if you are getting this gun that there is no compatibility with this gun. There are no specified mag pouches unless you get the really expensive blue force gear ones. The mags itself are really expensive. You cannot customize stocks because of the bigger buffer tube, and if you break this gun or want to upgrade, some parts are only made for the hk417's size so parts will be hard to find. You must get a molle vest to attach the mag pouches since no m4 mag pouch can hold it.

Please if you get this gun, get a G3 mag holder. Its cheap and probably can fit it. Condor makes a nice one. Overall, superb gun quality and parts but know the effects of getting such a unique gun.

"Let me start off by just saying wow I love this thing. I have have several different airsoft aeg platforms over my time playing airsoft and this one just destroys them all. The 417 is a amazing rifle in the real world and this airsoft replica live's up to the real thing in every way is can. The rate of fire is insane, I had a M60E3 for a long time and this rifle puts it to shame and that is using the same size battery I used with the M60. I recommend this to anyone look for compact modern battle rifle for field use the magazine's are large but the 500 round high caps will do everything you need any more.
