For: VFC FN Herstal SCAR-H MK17 CQC AEG Airsoft Gun (TAN)Product Information:
I purchased this SCAR-H a few days and received it on time with the discounted 3-day select shipping. It came to my house with a 392 fps QC paper. I'm skirmishing this rifle tomorrow, but I've put a couple mags through it plinking and it's fantastic. The hicap VFC mag fits perfectly and feeds great. Basically for me, everything on this gun is fantastic. I'm a left-handed shooter, so the ambidextrous features are perfect for me. I'm basically writing this review to be another person to confirm a couple of gripes that everyone else has as well that each VFC SCAR owner will have to deal with.
The quality is insane.
Pretty much everything.
You have enough hop-up adjustability that you're not maxed out with .25s.
The proprietary VFC hicaps are pretty good.
13-15 RPS with 8.4v mini.
Feels great in your hand. Only weighs a little over 6 pounds.
Extremely balanced feel.
It's just fantastic, because it's VFC.
-The ambidextrous selector switch is laggy on the right side of the gun. This doesn't affect the function, but takes away from the coolness of the ambidextrous switch, since it seems to be a more positive click if you use the traditional M4 style left side switch.
-The handle for the bolt is slightly loose and at rest doesn't close the bolt cover 100% completely, but has a millimeter of it open, and rattles a bit. If there is some way to tighten that, please let me know.
-The wires in the stock. Everyone has the same complaint and so do I. The wires are small gauge, but they're heat shrunk to stay together and it has an automotive style blade fuse. I couldn't get a 9.6v mini in there, but I didn't try very hard because I didn't want to screw up any polymer material in my brand new $400 rifle. This rifle is not a fan of battery space, as expected. I would recommend to get a small 7.4v lipo and an 8.4v mini as a backup. Some people get 9.6v minis in there, but you'll be able to slip a 7.4v lipo in there super easy.
