FN Herstal Full Metal SCAR Light 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.

"Fantastic AEG, shoots great for a stock gun
.Externals are top notch
.internally decent (Not as bad as people say)
.Stock motor is.....terrible, replace right away (Not hard to do at all) I recommend a matrix 3000 motor for torque
.battery space (not bad though, just buy like 2 small 1000mah lipos)
. bought mine before it went down in price by 120$ XD XD XD XD+
.you dont have this sexy beast yet because ur reading this review
.Will steal your attention away from yo gurl
"OMG, this perrrrrty baby is just sooo oh special to gaze upon. The Scar is perfect on the outside, with decent internals to cover her. If you have a decent amount of money to spend, and love the Scar, then there is no other brand of Scar to buy other than the VFC model.
"I bought mine, and it came in a few days and all i can say is wow. The externals are absolutely precise, the upper receiver is full metal and the rails are extremely sharp. All of the trades are there, even the unfortunate made in taiwan 6mm, but im not complaining; they hardly stand out amongst the fn hernstal logo. The rest of the gun is made from a very nice polymer and the comes with the typical scar features (ambi selector switch & mag release, funtional bolt catch that locks for hop up adjustment, and folding 6-postion rear stock). To my surprise, it came with an additional scar l STD barrel extension. The stock, despite many reviews of not a lot of space, has fit a number of sized stick lipo's. I would not run anything larger 129mm length batteries. I personally ran a 11.1 1300 mah firefox lipo with no issue, including the crappy car fuse that is factory wired. I did, however, cut it out, and soldered deans in. I will say doing that is probably preferred if you want to maximize room in there and because i did that, I run my GATE MERF 3.2 burst mosfet with my said lipo; and yes it all fits in the stock fully collapsed(who needs the fuse when the merf is regulating voltage).
Now for performance the gun did shoot well straight out of the box, however i was not able to test rof or fps with the stock motor, because as soon as i ensured that it worked i swapped in my lonex titan a2 motor. I can say with the additional upgrades that is shot 393 out of the box. The only complaint i have is the hop up unit. It's proprietary and many buckings will not work; which sucks because the hop was tuned all the way down and I had to deal with a shot drop after about 100ft because of it, so with that I recommend R-hop. R-hop was a challenging install more so than your usual m4 style install. i would recommend the m nub in addition because changing one without the other is rather cumbersome and you should do it all at once considering taking this gun apart is not fun nor quick.
All in all the weapon is excellent and will be my last platform purchase
Pros: excellent quality externals
internals are lipo ready in my experience
great ROF and FPS
CONS: Proprietary hop up unit
picky and bucking solutions
Crappy made in taiwan 6mm Trademark
