Product Information:
I just picked this gun up about a week ago. So far im in love! The quality of the exterior seems sturdy and well made. The internals are all upgraded from the previous version of this gun, and are sturdy, plus the aftermarket upgrades for the gun are plenty!
The magazine's are really well made as long as you take really good care of them (oil lots and properly prepare for storage). Shoots really hard and the recoil is very realistic and feels like shooting a fully auto 22. Over all the gun is great!

If your looking for a gbbr that's near perfect out of the box, a ton of fun and good for a intermediate or advanced player this truly is your gun!


Looks great and just like the real thing!
Shoots better than all my AEG's
Perfect weight and realistic recoil.
Super steller GBBR

Nothing so far as long as you are willing to take care of the gun and constantly tear down and clean/ oil.

Product Information:
The WE scar l is a fun gun, but has many issues. If you can get the right parts in it though, it is a beast. I'd say it's worth the money.

The upper is made from a quality metal.
The lower is made out of a very high quality polymer.
It comes with a metal flash hider, but is glued on.
Very strong recoil, this ends up being a problem over time.
It is almost completely ambidextrous.
It weights very close to a real scar l.
It is mostly accurate, but looses accuracy at around 150-175 feet.

The air nozzle breaks, a lot.
My trigger mech broke, I have only used it a few times.
The magazines are expensive and usually end up leaking.
The bolt carrier chipped in the rear.
The stock does not like to stay closed all of the time if you fold it.
The bolts and screws come lose frequently, but are held in by springs so you won't lose them.

Product Information:
Very cool and very iconic for first person shooters out there. This model of the Mk.16 is a very nice gun and it is great for milsim. It is a good gun but I just could not run with it. The disassembly is very simplistic and it is VERY ambidexterous which is a plus in my book.

Very nice to have in a collection
small and compact( can be pro or con)
Easy to clean

The cooldown is terrible if not on semi
very loud clanking sound and gives away position
parts tend to break
the allen wrench can be easily lost

Product Information:
This is my first GBBR, great built on par with the VFC AEG version.
It shoots around 350-360fps at 52 degree outdoor & quite accurate with the iron sights within 20ft. This rifle gives pretty good recoil, and the trigger respond time is instant (gas operated) compare to an AEG.
Very nice!

Good quality with great details.
Don't have to deal with gearbox anymore.
Very fun gun, and I WILL never look back to AEG again.

Very heavy even without a gearbox.
Pistol grip is weak to carry the weight of the gun.
Expensive magazine.

Product Information:
Overall, this is a very fun gun. It has a few flaws that will cost you some time and money before you make it to the field, but if you like the look, and feel, it is definitely worth it.

Great looks, great feel, sounds mean, has nice iron sights, the telescoping stock is sturdy, sturdy exterior construction, plenty of rail-estate, shoots great.

When this gun is working, it works well. Also, I think cool-down failure is a myth. Yes, as you fire, the gun gets cold and therefore works less efficiently and that is exacerbated by cold weather, but will you ever experience failures in cold weather? Doubtful. If it is cold enough to stop this gun from working it is also cold enough to sap the performance of batteries as well, so the point is moot.

The magazines are the weakest part of this gun. Mine literally fell apart. First the main seal went out and then the metal body broke in half. So now I'm running leaky mags held together with electrical tape. Not fun.

The other concern I have with this gun is parts breakage. The cast metal parts of this gun are laughably flimsy. My bolt carrier broke in half after running a handful of mags, and several screws stripped out after only a few field strips. I was able to get new parts shipped out at no charge, but I would still rather it had not happened.

an absolutely amazing gun!! i love most everything about it! I say most because i really dont care for the iron sights at all. i replaced then with some HK 416 iron sights and not only does it look badass, but i feel it just works a lot better. my only complaints are there were some parts in the gun that didnt seem to work properly, like the bolt catch for example didnt work, and the stock didnt work properly. but i just took them apart, its really easy to do if you have common sense and it comes with directions, then put them back together, now everything works just like it should. my mag did leak but thats an easy fix

-the weight of the gun and he kick just make you feel badass
-easy to take apart and put back together
-very versatile
-its kinda loud but i like that

-some parts didnt work properly but after taking apart the gun and just putting it back together everything works great
-mag leaks but its an easy fix
-dont really care for the iron sights but thats my preference

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I've owned this gun now for about 3 months and have been in around 5 games in it and its absolutely amazing. Its loud enough to create some fear in cqb and fast enough to put up a fight in the field (rof wise, possibly fps). The only thing I recommend would be getting a npas valve the same for we pistols to control the fps. I wouldn't recommend this to beginners though, i've had a lot of the internals break on me so you definitely need to check on them after everygame. As well the mags tend to leak until you reseal them. Im giving this a 4/5 though because of the trouble you might have to go through before the gun is completely reliable.

Cost effective Gbbr
Can control the fps if you get a npas
FN trademarks
Your own unique serial number
Much more reliable then the awss
Doesnt really need upgrading

Mags are expensive, and may leak
externals tend to fall off you if you dont tighten or glue some parts
Internals are hard to find sometimes, and as well are kinda expensive when they break
