FN Herstal Full Metal SCAR Heavy STD 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. VFCs 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 rifle is Worth it. Every gun is going to have some cons.
like my buddy always says "Take care of your guns and they will last."
"This weapon, as to no surprise being from VFC, is absolutely amazing, inside and out. The build is super sturdy. I have taken it apart and put it back together several times and it is no less sturdy than it was out of the box. Everything that's metal on the real steel is metal, and everything that is polymer on the real steel is polymer on this. And it is some heck of hard polymer. Even harder than low quality metals. It doesn't teeth at all when pulling and pushing pins in and out of it. It also looks exactly like a real SCAR and I've held the real steel version. It looks so sexy with my Eotech sight, rail covers, and angled grip I put on it.
I have had this gun for 8 months now and have had very few issues with it. It's accurate, has a great range, the fps is around 360-380 which is good for field and CQB, plus it is easy to take apart and upgrade. But very few will be needed, maybe a tight bore, a new bucking and nub, or a higher power spring for field. Otherwise internally, it's top notch. There are also no wires showing when the stock is folded like the DBOYs and CA versions. It's all wired in through little conducting washers in the stock crease. The cycle rate on this thing is INSANE out of the box. On a 9.6 it sounds like a buzz saw. On an 11.1 volt lipo...it sounds like you have angered god.
The only issue I have had are the wires in the stock and how the stock itself adjusts with a battery inside. With certain batteries, the stock can only be collapsed to the level of the battery inside. The bigger, the worse this effect is. The wiring however, that connects to the fuse and battery in the rear, ripped on me not once, but twice in the same set. Electrical tape only temporarily fixes this problem, until the recoil shakes the tape off. I had to buy a whole new scar wiring set for it to work flawlessly again. Might have been a fluke, but don't force the wires in when plugging your battery in.
Also, the mags are CRAZY expensive. 40$ for a hi-cap and mid-caps are only a little less. The VFC mags do work and look the best, but there are cheaper mags you can buy that look a little less pleasing and are a tighter fit, but they still work fine.
Overall, for any airsofter, This is a great gun. Pretty much a grab and go AEG sure to please both in performance and looks. The price tag is a little high, but trust me, you get much more than you pay for. There are many other high end guns like this that cost hundreds more, but don't perform nearly as well.
Overall, 4.8/5. Because nothing is perfect, although this is pretty close.
"this gun is amazing shoots far and true! i love everything about it, its solid, good internals, fully licensed very cool.
only issue i had was when they package got here it was pretty haggard. im pretty sure ups dropped the package resulting in the outer barrel being loose and they bolt catch as well. both easy fixes but i would prefer if i never had to deal with it.
great gun highly suggested 5 out of 5 10 out of 10 whatever buy this gun.... like yesterday!!!
