VFC MK16 / MK17 Line

VFC ( Vega Force Company ) is a well known airsoft manufacturer in the industry. VFC has proven their name through performance and durability. One of VFC’s original line of performance airsoft guns is their SCAR line. The Special Operations Forces Combat Asault Rifle ( SCAR ) is a modular rifle designed by FN Herstal for U.S. SOCOM. The FN SCAR consisted of two main types. One chambered in 5.56x45mm ( MK16 / SCAR-L ) as well as one chambered for the bigger round 7.62x51mm ( MK17 / SCAR-H ).

VFC has done a great job in designing and creating a precise replica of the SCAR. VFC had originally created the MK16 line but had later created their line for the MK17 rifle. These rifles have gone through a major improvement over the past few years. Similar to the real firearm variant, the VFC Scar contains an aluminum upper receiver and polymer lower frame, stock, and pistol grip. Externally, the VFC MK16 / MK17 contain similar parts such as a monolithic upper rail, left and right rail segments for flashlights, lasers, etc. Like most airsoft SCAR variants on the market, the folding stock makes it easier when transporting your airsoft gun as well as exiting vehicles during a training scenario. The ambidextrous fire selector and magazine release serve a great purpose for left handed shooters especially when transitioning around corners, in buildings, etc. One thing that sets the VFC SCAR line from others is the folding stock, no wires are exposed when stock is folded over. VFC uses a unique hinge system. The gold plated contacts are built in the hinge making the VFC SCAR a more realistic airsoft gun. Although the VFC MK16 and MK17 are one of the more popular SCAR variant airsoft assault rifles on the airsoft field, the VFC MK17 SSR serves a great role for the long range shooter.

The VFC Sniper Support Rifle ( SSR ) is based off of the MK17. Unlike the MK16 and MK17, some of the more noticeable differences is the longer upper receiver as well as the longer barrel. Having a longer inner / outer barrel, allows the user to engage targets in the distance quickly and accurately. The longer monolithic upper rail allows the user to mount their preferred optic(s) at the preferred eye relief in order to adapt to the mission. The extended lower rail will allow the user to not only mount a bipod for stabilized long range shots but for mounting additional vertical grips for more control and comfort at mid range engagements. The VFC MK16 / MK17 has been well known to perform exceptionally well especially in stock form.

Internally, the VFC SCAR line contains simliar components. VFC’s pre-upgraded version 2 gearbox contains reinforced, self shimming, steel gears. Having reinforced drive train components alleviates the worry of parts breaking during operation on the field. Unlike other gearboxes, VFC is equipped with 8mm steel bushings which provide stability and longevity over plastic, copper, and brass bushings. The self shimming system allows the gears to be more stable during rotation. The polycarbonate piston is much stronger yet lighter for durability and longevity. The compression components such as the piston head, cylinder head, cylinder, and air nozzle provide superb air seal even over time. Having a great air seal provides a more consistent velocity output. Less deviation between shots.

Overall, the VFC continues to strive ahead in the airsoft industry by providing one of the best if not the best airsoft guns on the market. The externals are made out of the strongest materials while maintaining a slim and lightweight design. The external finish is exquisite and the internals are by superb. The entire airsoft The MK16 / MK17 line of airsoft guns by VFC are surely designed to impress the average airsoft player or collector.

Tactical Universal Clip – No Need for Slings?

Tactical Universal Clip (Patent Pending) is a holster for a long gun or shotgun. The device comprises a clip that is attached to the butt stock of the rifle or shotgun, and a chest plate that attaches to a military style Molle vest, police tactical vest, police officer’s duty vest, or a chest harness by means of Velcro straps. This enables the user to carry the rifle or shotgun without the use of a sling or strap. For years, a sling or strap has been accepted as the standard way to carry a rifle or shotgun. The TAC System is an innovative design that will revolutionize the carrying of long guns. It’s simple, easy to use, practical and “makes sense”.
