"So I just bought 2 of these and they got here today. Both had a lower receiver crack behind the selector switch. Both seem almost brand new so as a precaution I've taped and ziptied the guns to prevent anymore cracking. I've searched online for replacement lowers but the only place I can find is overseas and out of stock. I may try to jb weld the receivers and if that works then all should be good. Chronographed them both with .28 BBS and one was at 340 while the other was at 347. Giving it a 4/5 due to both having the same issue and no replacement part is available, but the price is decent.
"A $440 gun for less than half the price? It's certainly a steal! Mine functions about as well as one might expect a VFC-made gun to function, which is, in a word, "Impeccably". They didn't skimp on the externals, either- Fairly high-grade metal, decked out in plenty of trademarks, and sure to turn heads. However, keep in mind that this being a boneyard gun may mean that whatever you get may have a couple flaws- The most common one among boneyard 417s seems to be a small crack in the lower receiver just behind the selector switch, as the metal there is thin and it seems to be a somewhat serious stress point, a flaw that isn't wasted on the one I received. Still, replacement receivers, while not exactly cheap, are available from certain retailers (Google is your friend!)- Replacement lowers are about $110, replacement uppers are about $60. In the end, it's likely you'll get a perfectly serviceable gun with a fixable purely-cosmetic flaw, and one that, if you opt to fix, you'll still be saving money on over a completely new 417. Needless to say, I'm incredibly pleased with mine.
