    So my last thread was the VFC MK18 vs G&P CQBR. But the topic turned into ranting about my leader and some people saying 416 and MK18. So which do u think (I know my leader is a jerk) and only people who know about one of the guns / own it. Please be descriptive if possible in your choice. Thanks.

    The 416 is easily the best stock AEG I've ever owned and probably in the top three or four I've ever handled. The thing is just nice.

    Mk18 in my opinion, but they are both sweet guns

    I trust Knief! You could bring a Knief to a knife-fight and Knief would win! The VFC is the gun in existence that I'd love to have over most guns

    I wouldn't even consider the 416. I'd look at the mk18 or sr15e3 iws. Such beautiful guns.

    I own the 416, and am thrilled with it. The performance is second to none, and the externals are amazing. I love everything about mine. I can easily use it as a field or cqb gun

    Its a toss up. One sweet looking gun for another. In my opinion If your okay with proprietary mags I would buy the 417. I don't think anyone on this fourm has one yet, its ONLY 470$?

    Yeah, I probably would have picked up the 417 if it were out when I got the 416. Getting pouches and mags would have been on the obnoxious side, but doable. Would have been a hot gun. Maybe I'll start a little HK AR collection as they start coming out.

    I bet M14 double stack mag pouches would work. If you wait long enough they will have 417 pouches out.

    I say mk18 but that's only because when I owned the 416 I had bad experiences with it, I traded it for a CA MK16 upgraded.

    There are mag pouches out for the real deal gear manufacturers if I remember right.

    I say the VFC 416 because it's awesome. I wish I had one. Lol.

    Mine shoots about 340 FPS with .2s, with .25s I'm getting about (estimated) 150-200 feet. Farther than I was expecting for a CQB gun.
