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.

"This replica is very aesthetically pleasing to look at and has the iconic shape to signify that you are a scar owner. The platform is solid no rattling noises.
VFC is known for the externals of the gun and this doesn't disappoint. Very well made and balanced pew pew stick. The gun is noticeably light weight for .308 replica. It has trades on the replica system, although I don't care for them they do look nice and compliments the overall flow of the system. The traditional motor grip is comfortable and is slimmer than other stock grips on the market. Selector has a positive click to know that you’re ready to go. The only external gripe I have is that I don't like on the replica is the stock, granted it has lasted a while I wouldn't put too much stress on it though. The bolt catch does work and it is the sound of divine intervention to hear it rack.
The internals are trash, to be straight with you all. For full price this gun is not competitive or durable. The self-shimming gears sounds like a good idea but it was not well thought out. I have less than 5k rounds and I am seeing metal shaving inside the external shell of the gun and it is from the gears. The hop up system is the worst hop up ever used by far. Doesn't hold adjustment the hop up arm misses the barrel window with the hop up nub. The result of this is poor range which makes this pew pew stick a $380 paper weight. Not all the internal parts are trash, the trigger, compression parts, motor and wiring are nice. The compression holds up well for stock parts. Motor gives it a snappy feel with good trigger response. Speaking of trigger, most comfortable trigger and smooth motion. But the gears and hop up to this gun is really a glaring weakness to this iteration for this replica.
Great gun to look at and admire from a far; that's all you will get unless you put time, money and effort in this pew pew stick to make it competitive. Gears will need to be replace and a huge overhaul on the hop up unit must be done to be able to play competitively. Gears can be replace and shim them the normal way. There is not simple fix for the hop up unit though you can't replace it since it is proprietary and metal one they sell on here is junk. You can get this to shoot well but it will take time to do so: good barrel, bucking, rhop, m nub, and modifying hop up unit. I spent over 14 hours just with the barrel assembly to make it shoot amazing. I love my scar but I say all these things because this will be a project gun not a good stock gun. I would not recommend this gun to a novice or someone that is not tech savvy. I hope this helps
Great build quality
Oddly comfortable trigger
Hop up unit
Price tag for a project gun
"This gun is absolute beast! VFC truly knows how to make excellent high quality AEG's.
Light weight gun
Offical trademarks make it look very cool and realistic
con for me, $$$$ price is sort of high but I bought this during the memorial day sale so...
Overall 5 stars this gun!!!!
"Owning 4 scars, I believe I've got what it takes to review at least one
Very nice FN HERSTAL trademarks
Full metal upper receiver
Working bolt catch
Adjustable cheek rest
Ok battery space(9.6 nunchuk can fit comfortably)
Signature SCAR flip up/down sights
Orange tip was beyond easy to remove in my case
Ambidextrous in just about any way
Gas block contains tool for dissassembly
More than enough rail space
Wiring for the stock is in the folding section of the stock(spare me the exact details guys)
Comes with expensive $40 hi cap (duh)
One unforgivable, unforgettable con is the Rear wiring, it utilizes a car style fuse, very outdated and takes up space
Bottom and side rails are polymer...a hard polymer but still....
Notoriously difficult hop up replacement issues, mine works fine but it may be problematic for others
EXTREMELY expensive mags, $26 midcaps and $40 hi caps
If the gun doesnt empty ur wallet then extra mags will
Hi caps are smooth and flawless fitting, midcaps are EXTREMELY tight fitting for whatever reason
Mags seem to scratch up easily too...
SCARs in general aren't easy for techs to work on, keep that in mind
I'm any case this gun is very much worth the money, VFC is a great brand and SCAR Hs especially are a very rare sight in any field
Very much recommended
