"My reliable back up platform.
Off the bat, the build of this weapons is great, exceptionally solid and feels great to handle. The pistol grip is very large and feels perfect in my hands and all the trades you could want... probably more than you'd want (looking at you, magwell). The compact stock is a great solution for those who have trouble shouldering your weapon on a plate carrier, but it maybe too short if you play with a regular M4 type stock extended.
As far as performance, this is a perfect CQB gun. One thing you need to be weary of is that shooting in semi-auto in quick succession or for prolonged periods of time tends to seize up the gear box and you can't pull the trigger anymore. Switching to full auto corrects it every time, but it's something to be noted. However, you should be using this in full auto anyways because it shoots laser beams in full auto with a nice tight groping until you pass it's maximum effective range.
You can use the PEQ box that it comes with, but I personally found it too small and very cheap in feel.
-Perfect, solid body
- light and strong
-Highly accurate in full auto CQB fire fights (remember what this gun is designed for)
Not semi friendly, but that's about it.
8/10, solid weapon for CQB "BEST GUN YOU WILL EVER OWN! Super quality, tight, awesome finish and detail. Best out there. As mentioned in earlier review, the buffer tube and wire stock are weak. If you fall on it, plan on replacing. There are after market ones. I replaced mine after second game with a short M4 slide stock. There is no room in the RIS for any type of battery. There are some RC car very small Lipo batteries that will fit into the stock buffer tube. Have to rear wire and make some adjustments.
Out of the box, this beast shoots a constant 350ish. Very accurate. Hop up responds well to changes and easy to adjust. Gun comes with a 6.04 barrel. Have not cracked the gear box, but if like my previous 416, all quality and well put together.
Gun is eye catching to all on the field. Overall, a 10/10. Would not hesitate to buy again. "BigRed here! Took this to an outdoor field and I must say this is the best stock gun I've purchased. Crono was 345 on the dot. Out of the box this shoots close to 25rps with just a 7.4 lipo. Sling adaptor in the back is perfect for Condor slings, one or two point. Places for both on both sides. Plenty of rail space for optics and grips. Even with a smaller barrel and being stock this was putting down Polarstar users consistently at an outdoor field. Very proud with HK and how well crafted this is. The metal used for the externals is insanely sturdy. No worrying about rough Milsims or getting down in the dirt.
Elite force- Will not gravity fall out when reloading, but is secure and has no wobble.
WE Hi-caps- Fit perfectly and fall flawlessly when reloading
(Will be looking into G&P High Rps mags)
On a side note KWA K120 mid-caps "Do NOT fit." The rubber grip is too thick.
Magpul anything fits. Moe stocks and rail attachments. No worries about compatibility so far with any parts, etc...
Remember your threads! Match + to + and - to -
I do suggest rail ladder covers. helps you grip a lot easier.
Hope this helps. Good luck out there fellow airsofters. "This gun is a Great gun 100% stock right out of the box. With a 9.6v it will run well but trigger is just a tiny bit spongy. Almost if for fraction of a second it doesn't respond. ( highly doubt you'll notice in a game). With a 11.1v lipo the gun is amazing but your full auto is way high. I use .28gram bbs and with those its range and accuracy on both 9.6 and 11.1v battery the gun is surprisingly really good. Almost the same as my old Kwa SR12 rifle. Only downside I can think of is the buffer tube I guess you call it is not very thick metal and hollow. The first rifle I got I had to return during shipping the tube cracked and when I unboxed the gun it split open. Despite that I highly recommend this gun it's very much worth every penny. From my experience using it don't use anything less then a 9.6v NiMH. The works just fine with 9.6 but personally it just seems to run bests with a 10.8v or lipo is used.
Runs great stock
There is NO Battery space
(If you don't like PEQ boxes or eletrical taped battery on to hand guard don't get this gun)
Weak stock tube
(If you drop the gun while stock extended on its stock it's probly gunna break
Umearex should cover it if you break the stock past evikes warranty) "Words cannot describe the quality and attention to detail from VFC, I have the hard to find GBB version of this C model..just awsome ! I own the 417 350 as well, I will keep buying anything they put out, the cost is high but so are Ferraris. "One of the best quality airsoft guns I have used/own
Better quality versus G&Gs 416 (I own both and really love the g&g one as well) No barrel wobble, this thing is solid!
The rate of fire with a 7.4 Lipo is amazing, im almost afraid to put a 3 cell into it! Superior ROF and trigger response with the same battery versus G&Gs model.
The build quality and finish on the metal is superb.
Mags- works with E-Mags, G&G mids, Elite Force mags, wont work with p-mags just like any other 416.
The included high cap is great looking...but you wouldnt want to take that small winding tool with you, also high caps are stupid baby rattles anyway. However, for not liking high caps, especially ones without the wheel, I was actually impressed with the function of the mag.
the PEQ box is an unfortunate way to mount the battery but it is probably necessary (wish there was a way to fit the battery in the fore grip, maybe there is?)
The stock is short (duh) but I think its comfortable. People with super long arms might not like it. If they made a butt plate that added about an inch to it, id be even happier, but its not a big deal for a cqb weapon. If you extend your average m4 stock to the first or second or so click, its like that.
Im a sucker for trade marks, they did a good job with these. Displaying
