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 bought this because my brother had one as well and I loved it. I wanted to upgrade it so mine would be better than his but this gun does NOT like to be upgraded.
First I changed the to full aluminum piston with adjustable FPS (SAT VVD), M135 and SHS Motor.
After firing it in my backyard a couple of hundred rounds the plastic cylinder head broke. Upgraded to Brass then.
Then the VFC sector gear broke. Sheered the first tooth of clean off and the piston's last tooth got punched into the piston cracking it inward.
Bought KWA gears and new piston. Reshimmed and tested again. Second piston broke off. Replaced that one and tried correcting Angle Of Engagment (AOE) and tested again. Third piston broke and gearbox got cracked. Motor set screw got lost and battery + wires overheat when firing +/- 80 rounds. And finally clear plastic saftely selector plate broke.
I really wanted an upgraded SCAR-L VFC because of how easy it is to disassemble for the adjustable piston. This all totaled to another $500 plus dollars now in trying to get this upgraded. To this day it's still not working and now I'm paying someone to help me fix it and upgrade it. Call me stubborn but I really want this particular SCAR-L as my main gun that's all suped up.
So word of caution do not upgrade this gun unless you are a extremely (and I mean EXTREMELY) experienced in upgrading airsoft rifles. And even then it still might not work due to either wires being to small a gauge, gearbox bushings (instead of bearings), VFC self shimming gears, spring rod being too long (I had to sand that down 5mm to get it to clear the sector gear with the new piston), supposedly weak gearbox frame. All in all I expected a lot more from a $400 dollar gun.
So unless your satisfied shooting 380 FPS (w/ .20g) or shooting 350 (w/ .25G) then just leave it stock. If it's stock indoor arenas should be great but large outdoor arenas you'll probably be at the mercy of people with better more upgraded AEGs. I'd imagine those people will have higher FPS and heavier BBs to shoot farther and straighter even in breezy conditions.
3 Stars cause it's great when it's stock, but upgrading it will probably cause it to break...
"Ok so i have had several airsoft weapons over the course of 7 years, and by far, this is one of the most disappointing ones i have gotten yet. Now do note that this weapon is not total garbage, but rather, it does not give you *bang* for your buck. The External build quality of this airsoft firearm blew me out of the water. I mean this feels like my real steel MK 16, and breaks down mostly in the same manner. So what makes or breaks this bb shooting firearm?
Well internally, it performs like a 150$ Lancer Tactical... or so I thought. Out of the package, my barrel came bent, making my shots drop off and deviate. Also to note; the barrel is pretty much a wide bore so a tbb is a must have. I have since then slapped a tbb in it, and it shoots like a beauty, if it weren't for its mediocre trigger response. If this weapon wasn't near 400$, i would cut some slack, but i will reiterate, its almost 400$ (same price bracket would be EMG and Krytac) if you don't have time or money to tech, go with a Krytac or EMG for this price range, but if you just LOVE the SCAR platform like myself, and dont mind giving a little TLC, this is a must have, for it is the best one on the market. After i fixed the barrel with an Angel Customs 6.01 tbb, this is my favourite weapon and it makes my team look all the more awesome.
pros: Build Quality is top notch and unmatched
Tan has a beautiful bronze finish
According to most other people, it is extremely accurate, mine was it because of
a bent barrel
Insane rate of fire.
Cons: OK out of box trigger response
"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
