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.

The Most Xtreme of Combat Shirts

The Tru-Spec Xtreme Combat Shirt is the perfect combination of the protection of a highly durable BDU top and the comfort and lightweight feeling of a long sleeve base layer. The sleeves of the Xtreme combat shirt are similar to those of a standard BDU top, with the zippered Velcro pockets that are angled forward, raid-style, for a more aggressive look and easier access. The sleeves also have textured elbow sections that can be opened up to house an elbow pad if necessary. The left sleeve features an extra map pocket down near the wrist area while the right has a section meant to hold pens, knives, or other small tools that can be clipped on. The body of the Tru-Spec Combat shirt consists of a nylon/cotton blend base layer, which unlike a regular BDU, is very breathable, light and is able to wick away moisture almost 3 times faster then cotton. It features a thick collar made of the same material as the sleeves providing some extra neck protection, as well as a zipper extending to the center of the chest allowing for easy changing of the shirt as well as some extra breathability.

The Xtreme Combat Shirt is very similar to Tru-Spec’s standard combat shirt in that it has the same nylon/cotton body and BDU-style sleeves, but the two are not the same. Whereas the standard combat shirt features reinforced padded elbow sections, the textured elbows on the Xtreme shirt can be opened to insert hard elbow pads for even more protection. The collar on the Xteme shirt is also different from that of the standard combat shirt in that it is taller, thicker, and made of the same material as the sleeves, and it can be zipped open similar to the buttons on a polo shirt. Finally, the pockets on the sleeves of the Xtreme shirt are angled forward raid-style while those on the standard shirt are vertical, and the standard shirt does not have the added map pocket or the section for clipping on extra tools.
