The construction is perfect, as expected of VFC.
They took enough attention to detail as to even get the grip angle right....unfortunately this is why it doesn't use a standard v2 gearbox
The flash hider was super easy to take off luckily, just dipped it in super hot water for a couple minutes and twisted clockwise by hand!
Awesome di-opter sights (hope i spelled that right)
Correct markings everywhere!
They even added a mock adjustable gas system just in front of, and below the front sight.
Working bolt catch.
The bad...unfortunately theres ALOT more bad.
Large x screws on the right side of the rail pretty much prevent u from putting anything there.
The gearbox....oh man, rant time, is probably the WORST variation of a V2 gearbox EVER!, you can treat that thing like a queen and it will still find a way to crack and destroy ur dreams, leaving u with the expensive options of buying another gearbox, HPA'ing it or buying the RA gearbox shell, that also happens to be off-spec!
The midcaps....oh boy, they most certainly wont fit 120 rounds, more like 50-70 and considering you'll probably be using higher gram bbs with the beast....id advise investing in hi caps.
The motor, absolutely awful, no torque or speed at all, replace it immediately.
The piston.....replace it now!, looks to be made of glass almost (exaggerating)
Ive heard the gearboxes come stock with M130 or M120 springs, way too much for an already poopy gearbox to handle.
I really do like this rifle a ton, but the internals need an overhaul....and the price of 440 is ridiculous, tha ABSOLUTE MOST these things should go for is 400, and that is already a bit much.
"To start off; I bought this rifle while in Taiwan.slight changes were that it was the 16" barrel "13 Hours" edition. 3 months later I give this fully derailed review.
The externals are fare superior than any gun out there with all the HK trades. Mechanical wise it's the complete opposite; there was a massive air leak being caused due to 1/8" gap between the hop up and gearbox anytime a mag is loaded. This resulted in low fps and 175ft max range. This can be resolved through calling umerex/elite force or the prowin mod.
Things you will want to replace is the piston, gearbox and install a mosfet. Also switch to full type cylinder.
The first month my gearbox cracked, piston shredded, and the contacts arched. Thankfully it's compatible with m4/m16 except for the gearbox, cutoff lever and, wiring harness. Also thanks to Evike for having everything I need instock.
In order to make this a phenomenal rifle to out perform, you'll need to modify the Echo1/VFC XCR gearbox to fit, inatall a gate nano ssr mosfet, and full type cylinder, and have the hop up gap resolved.
My results was a 225ft +/-10ft edefective range with a prowin and flat hop with prommy purple bucking on a ghopped stock barrel.
The internals installed were the xcr split gearbox, full cylinder, gate nano ssr mosfet, matrix 115 spring, and a we tech piston. After these changes the rifle was no longer a paper weight and shot as beautiful as it looks. These results were done using .30g Jag Precision bb.
Compatibilty with m4/m16 parts
Accuracy/range after upgrades
It's a VFC
Price spent on upgrades
Stock internal quality
Can be heavy
Mags are expensive
Midcaps only hold 51 rounds.
All in all I would buy again despite the frustrations; it was a fun build that shoots amazing. It's also unique and a great dmr platform if you have the time and funding.
"Well, had this for several months and used it maybe a dozen times....mostly back yard practice and once in the field for a game. Gear box is done already, and going to be sending it back to Evike for repair. The 45 days are up, no warranty, and it's going to cost me more $$$. Not happy at all.
