"Ok, had this gun for a while now and its time for a review.
high rate of fire
high fps(430 Fps can be a con for some)
can be upgraded(uses version 2.2 gearbox so take that in mind)
good quality build material
mid-cap mags have "dummy rounds"
heavy(could be a con for some)
easy to use(especially if you use m4/m16s)
tons of rail space
can be converted to a dmr or sniper easily
you will be the only one on your team with this gun(I've yet to see someone else with this gun on the field that I play on)
gearbox broke easily
trigger mech broke easily too(maybe bad luck I don't know)
weight can be a problem(especially if you run around for 5 hours plus hours with this thing)
replacing the gearbox once it brakes
internals not the best quality
had to sink a lot of money and man hours just to get it to work again
you don't have one
And for the people that said that this gun cant be upgraded or easily upgraded your wrong. I've upgraded this gun with the Matrix Godzilla Super High Torque Performance Airsoft AEG Motor, Modify Quantum Piston with Titanim Coated Metal Teeth, and a Lonex Aluminum Mushroom Type Silent Piston Head. I've also put the Matrix Military Grade 4x32 Range Estimating Rifle Scope and Spartan Doctrine Lightweight 40mm Airsoft Mock Silencer / Barrel Extension - (245mm) on this gun. I've also rewired it to tune down the rate of fire(made it a dmr build).
But if you take care of this gun it will take care of you. "This is an absolute gun.
The H&K 417 is perfect for those looking for the Mid range to DMR range of play.
The only thing I can tell everyone that is getting into this is
KEEP HOP UP BUSHINGS ON STAND-BY. This thing is chewing through mine, but that is just the nature of the bushings and so on and so forth.
easy battery storage
very quick access to gearbox and hopup (SO NICE)
excellent FPS(mainly for field if you don't want to go change some springs)
tons upon tons of rail space.
it is a bit on the heavy side (im not 100% sure on this modle i own the 150c which was built by a different company.)
High cap mags feed better than the mid cap mags. (odd i know)
mags are a bit difficult to store in regular holsters.
This gun chews the bucking in your hopup.
I highly recommend this gun to a seasoned player, I do not recommend this to a tech. I cannot find a reason to upgrade anything in this gun besides the inner barrel and of course buckings. The internals are great and will last. keep it lubed and youll be able to play for days :) "This was the second AEG I've bought. And it is the second best one I've had(The first being my Tokyo Marui RECCE carbine) And I have to say. This thing is worth every penny you pay for it. Even considering that its market down $70 compared to other sites that sell it. Performance is good, it's definitely lipo ready. Now let's get to the pros and cons.
Good ROF. Especially on am 11.1v (Thanks captain obvious)
Accurate up to and slightly past 120 feet. (using .2s)
Top of the line finish. As expected from VFC.
Solid. Absolutely no wobble whatsoever. Not even the butt stock.
Full travel mock bolt w/ bolt catch. Because it looks cool and feels natural when you rack it. Although it doesn't have any effect on the performance it's great.
Unique, it's an HK417. One of the few 7.62 AR designs on the market.
Large buttstock and buffer tube. This makes it nearly impossible to find a aftermarket buttstock replacent and buffer tube sling mount. (I used zip-ties instead). Amd the large stock is a little cumbersome. Even IF you are a large person.
That's about it. Great gun. It's literally a steal if you buy it here than from any other site or store. Read More Reviews Write a Review
