"Gun shoots great out of the box looks fantastic as well.
All the parts are made to last except the piston. After buying it and using it for a while i learned that the included piston isn't too great and mine is already stripped and being fixed as we speak. A fairly inexpensive fix, but the fact of the matter being that I didn't expect that too be a problem. Besides that, this gun is superb in all areas looks feel everything. Well worth the price tag especially when you add on the accessories (AFG Holo etc)
And DO NOT WORRY ABOUT BATTERY SPACE. I guess people don't think this through. Get a strap on pouch to mount on the side of the stock and it will fit any battery. And it also adds some BAMF looks to the gun. It's like a $5-$10 fix and is always overlooked. "I barely got this gun last week and it is AWESOME! It is the sickest looking airsoft gun I have ever seen. It will even put cool looking SAWs and M60's to shame. It is so detailed. The picture is wrong, it does not say MK17 MOD0 on the side, instead it has the FN Herstal logo, and in the top right of the left side it says SCARH 7.62x51, then the serial number. Mine shoots around 360 fps with .2's. If you are concerned that the colors don't blend well like they don't in the last few pictures, don't worry. The colors blend well and they look absolutely awesome.
Great FPS for CQB, con if you want to play field
Doesn't really look like the first picture tan, it is more dark earth, which looks really cool.
Comes with a long heavy flashider
Folding, ergonomic stock
looks better than the light version
7.62x51 mags hold 500 bb's.
Very limited battery space ( you can use a stick type battery, it will fit)
EXTRA PRO: the flashider works as a tuning fork. Just tap it on metal "Had this gun for a few months now and i still love it. I haven't had any problems whatsoever. Also has the cool factor. Not the rarest gun out there but definately not as common as an m4 so its something different
-no wiring exposed when stock is folded
-functional bolt catch
-authentic FN Herstal trademarks
-tan looks wicked
-as realistic as it gets
-superb rof on 9.6
-nice weight (feels durable)
-performs awesome to date
-breaks down like a real scar (not necessary but just cool)
-Sights are slightly off
-came with a couple deep scrates (1-2cm long, 1/2 -1 cm wide and deep enough it took the paint off)
-fps is a little lower than i'd like (around 350fps good for cqb but i play field)
-having a 9.6 small type battery in the stock only lets it close to the second shortest position (positon 1-5 are usable, position 6 is not)
-my biggest problem is that the sling points are too small to be able to fit a 1-point sling in (mine anyway) and the sling points are plastic with no metal replacements
overall the cons are pretty minor annoyances that ive found and the pros definately outweigh the cons. i would definately buy it again. Read More Reviews Write a Review

FN Herstal Full Metal SCAR Heavy CQC Airsoft AEG Rifle by VFC - Dark Earth
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. VFC’s 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.
