Hk416 .. Which one to buy ?

Hi!
I want to buy my first airsoft, and i dont know which one i should get between the
- G&G t418 light
- vfc hk416 ( umarex cooperation )
- or maybe an other ? ( i like the m4 platform too .. )

I am looking for something in the 400$ range...

Your suggestions and comments will be very appreciated !


Thanks
Marc-andré

Get AV'd thatll help alot. But if your like me and love the 416 id say go for it. The JG 416 is decent and cheap. The Umarex/VFC is prolly the nicest 416 on the market today.
Also there is a HurricanE 416 kit (its discontinued and hard to find) but there is one on the classifieds but the kit alone ranges from 400-800 bucks. The kne here is 500 snd youll still need to buy a gearbox and a few other bits to build a working gun out of it.
Also if you get AV'd i may have a cheap 416 for you but dont ask till yer AV'd.

(mods lemme know if this is a violation and ill edit my post.)

if you're dropping the amount you would on the g&g, I'd get the vfc instead. If you want to save money, the jg and dboys are not bad options.... just keep in mind it won't be as 'premium' as the vfc.

TM EBB is the top of the electric 416 heap.

I've had nothing but problems with my dboys hk416. Read the reviews. Mag problems and cheap internals.

GET AV'D you are not going to get information on where to buy guns until you have been Age Verified.

We have. To recap
VFC/Umarex numba 1
JG decent for the cash mid grade
DBoys okay looking. Cheap but you get what you pay for and there are known comlatability and reliability issues.

Not much more to say beyond that. The GandG isnt really a 416 so id just avoid it if a 416 is what your after. Also for the money the VFC is beter

I have a VFC 416 that's like a jewel but it's five years old and if I was buying today I would have the TM, and I'd do whatever it took to get one.

I may still get one anyways and have 2 416s in the quiver.

Yes thanks for the 416. The vfc is clearly a better choice,
But if i go with a classic m4 platform..? Still vfc or it has a better choice in the 400$ range?

I have seen in person / gamed all of the following HK416s. (I haven't seen the TM HK416 but I shot the TM M4 SOPMOD which uses the same system).

Out of G&G, TM, VFC, SRC, the internals and parts of the SRC is the best.

If you want the best durability and performance, go for the SRC HK416 Gen III Pro (I know it sucks that the markings are IN-correct though).

VFC on the other hand is the best in terms of externals, trades, finish, and their bodies are ROCK solid.

TM 's 416 is great because it has the shoot and recoil engine (awesomeness) but they are very difficult to find here, and expensive, and only 300fps.

G&G's 416 isn't really a HK416, and they are overpriced in my opinion.

[size=4]Bottom line is: If I wanted a HK416 for myself, I would get the VFC, and put in SRC guts to make it bullet proof inside and out.[size]

Note: none of these are really around the $400 CAD price range unless you go for used.... sorry bud.

100% hands down VFC 416 man. It was by far the best AEG I have ever owned. You won't be sorry buying one if you do.
