VFC has really gone above and beyond in recreating what most would argue to be the best and most accurate SCAR in the airsoft industry. The upper receiver is expertly CNC machined out of a single block of high strength aluminum for exceptional durability and also features fully licensed trademarks that are beautifully laser etched into the receiver for authenticity.The controls of the rifle accurately mimics the real thing with ambi selectors, ambi magazine release, and reversible charging handle with functional bolt stop that will lock the bolt to the rear for easy access to hop-up controls. The collapsible/foldable stock features a 6 position length of pull and a 2 position cheek riser. Attention to detail has not been spared in this recreation of the rifle.
The internals feature reinforced high performance parts to ensure uncompromised reliability and performance out of the box. VFCs full metal version 2 reinforced gearboxes come standard with CNC steel gears and their spring auto-shim system that reduces the need to shim the gearbox to achieve optimum performance. The upgraded spring guide, light weight polycarbonate piston and airtight cylinder allow the gun to stand out as a solid contender amongst the best that airsoft has to offer.About the FN SCAR:
The Special Operation Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) was developed by Belgian arms manufacturer FN Herstal (FNH) as a reliable, low maintenance, modular combat rifle for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to replace the tried and true M4A1 carbine used by Special Forces units across various branches of the US Military.
The FN SCAR features ambidextrous controls such as an ambi selector and mag release as well as a reversible charging handle allowing the operator to configure the rifle to their preference. The CNC one piece upper receiver features an uninterrupted Picatinny top rail with two removable side rails and a bottom rail to mount any MIL-STD-1913/Picatinny accessories. The high strength polymer lower receiver helps cut down on the over-all weight of the rifle while still maintaining most of the controls of the already familiar M4/M16 system. The telescoping, folding stock allows the rifle to be fully adjustable for length of pull to accommodate any operator. With the stock folded, the SCAR offers a significantly lower profile than even the M4A1 allowing for easy storage and transportation.

"I have had this gun for over a year and i absolutely love it. It is very durable and has a surprisingly high rate of fire.
Just under 400 fps
good weight and very well balanced
good draw time
high fire rate for surppressive fire and lighting enemies up
great for wide open fields or CQB or any thing you can dream of
very adaptable it can be use from heavy machine gun to crude sniper
quite accurate and has flip up peep sites
reloading the battery can be difficult but if you have trouble adjust the stock and it should come out
the bolt sometimes does not catch
BBs will occasionally roll out of the barrel but all it does is make your next shot a dry fire
"Very solid very real looking very realistic to the real model not sure the performance yet. very well put in the gather no loose parts. The only part I see that would rather work that rattles around is the bolt and the stock a bit. But don't let these things that hurt you I have had less or scars before and this is by far the best one I've ever owned. I have had other ones from other manufacturers and this one beats them
"I bought this while it was on sale to save my wallet. I was sort of scared of defects because of the sale, but I figured it was nothing I couldn't fix. I read all of the reviews and did research on other Scar-L's and Scar-H's, and this is by far the best choice. It is easily upgradeable, the external body feels extremely sturdy, and it looks great. One thing I noticed out of the box was how sturdy the stock felt. Compared to my Echo 1 SR16, it feels like a tank. I went to shoot it and I was extremely unimpressed, but I charged up my battery some more, and this thing competes very well with accuracy and FPS even though the SR16 has a longer barrel. Sounds awesome in full auto.
Mags for Scar-L's are wayyy cheaper than Scar-H's
Ambidextrous controls, although selector switch is kinda crummy
Feels nice and durable
Little to no AEG whine once tuned up right
Shoots accurately with iron sights and FPS seems pretty good
Mag well is super wobbly
Echo 1 Mags do not feed properly (battery was not fully charged when I used them)
Battery compartment is TINY. I got a G&G small butterfly and it hardly fits.
Wiring feels like it could snap easily
Selector switch and bolt are finicky and do not feel right
Overall out of the box this gun is great for the price I got it for. It is more so a $300 gun than a $400 gun. I will be using it this weekend in a public match, and I will strip it down to see the internals. I will post an updated review after that.
