Product Information:
I started a build on this gun when the team I lead got sponsored in effort to build an impressive AEG. This rifle has been very interesting to say the least, and now that I'm familiarized with the rifle (as I should be by now), I feel that I'm in a place to provide a very in depth review. Unfortunately, like other rifles in it's class - you see a whole lot of reviews by customers who aren't very knowledgeable concerning what to expect out of what would be considered a high end AEG. First off, the externals are second-to-none. The color, trademarks, and overall look and feel of the DD 9.5" Mk18 RIS II that comes on this rifle is the selling point, and is AMAZING. The rest of the externals have their ups and downs which I intend to outline in detail in my review. This rifle is for people that are experienced both in the sport, and with working on/with AEGs. This rifle (in my opinion) is simply a great upgrading platform for those that don't wish to do external modification on their rifles. I'd like to note that if you're comparing this rifle to the Umarex 416 CQB by VFC as I was, they are internally (and in some small cases externally) the exact same rifle.

Pros:
Licensed 9.5" Daniel Defense Mk18 RIS II
Correct 10.3" Barrel
Correct Gas Block
Pistol grip is slim, and very comfortable compared to other similar rifles
Trademarks are awesome, both for the U.S. and ESPECIALLY the Overseas versions.
Working Bolt Catch (also a Con)
Tan Furniture.
Comes with Rail Covers.
SOME very decent internal parts along with those that need work.
Comes with a decent flash hider.


Cons:
Tolerances. Could be better.
QC - There were FAR TOO MANY loose screws, literally, in this rifle upon purchase. You MUST go through the rifle ENTIRELY and tighten EVERYTHING all the way down to the set screws in the two piece barrel.
Barrel is, in fact, two piece.
Method in which the buffer tube attaches to the receiver.
Stock wobble - back to tolerances.
WEAK Polycarbonate Piston - IT IS NOT A GOOD THING.
WEAK Polycarbonate Tappet Plate.
Trigger Assembly could use work.
Working Bolt Catch can make some aspects of disassembly aggravating.
Finding magazines that fit and feed correctly can be daunting.
Be ready to work on this thing.
Overall - this thing is a beautiful AEG rendition of the Mk18 Mod 1 used by virtually every Military Branch's Special Operations units, but needs some work to make it perform on the level that I required it to. It's a great gun, but don't expect it to be something Godly like what you'd expect out of Systema, or something similar. I'll be moving to a KWA LM4 soon, but this rifle isn't going anywhere. I'd give it a 3.5, but 4 will have to do.

Product Information:
The VFC Full Metal MK18 is the most well built airsoft gun I have ever owned. The Daniel Defense Rail System and full metal construction make this product incredibly solid. From the crisp trigger pull to the functioning bolt catch the externals are perfection. The internals of this gun are just as solid as the externals. The rate of fire with a 9.6v battery is fantastic, and the FPS (360-365) is great if you play on a CQB field. This is a gun you won't have to worry about upgrading for a very long time.

Pros:
Full Metal
FPS is low enough for CQB
DD Rail System
Great ROF with a 9.6v
Includes 3 rail covers and metal flashhider

Cons:
Doesn't come with the foregrip, which is fine since everyone is doing thumb over bore these days.

Product Information:
Well, it's the VFC MK18 Mod 1, modeled after the guns Spec-Ops use. Functional bolt catch and release which is awesome for adjusting hop-up, and the gun comes two-toned and with a foregrip. All you need is a battery (crane stock type or lipo stick) and you're all set! Despite the fps listed, I chrono'ed at around 360 fps with .25 gram BBs, so with .20s you should get 380-390 fps. Probably a little too hot for cqb so you'll have to change springs. Overall, I'll give this gun a 4.3-5. Why weird number? It's a great quality gun, but it's not halfway to perfect, so I got to bump it down a notch.

Pros:
Included foregrip
Rail covers
VFC quality
Good ROF with a 7.4v LiPo or 9.6v NiMH


Cons:
Price (relative to everyone, but to me 400 even would've been great)
High cap is not of the greatest quality
Semi auto locks up after 10 or so shots (shoot in full auto for a second to reset it, must be a cut off lever issue)
Crane stock (so overplayed, but gets the job done)

Product Information:
This gun is awesome, very accurate and realistic. This is the best gun I have ever owned, it is very light. but is very outperforms my elite force, king arms, and kwa.

Pros:
very cool
licensed Daniel defense ris
sights are really nice
includes 3 rail covers(mine didn't come with vertical grip)
includes kac style flashhider

Cons:
little bit of stock wobble which is normal and can be fixed with electrical tape
although the sights are nice, they are not true to a real mk18 mod 1, they are troy style but they are very nice
mine didn't include a foregrip, not really a big deal though
