Hi guys, here you will find nothing new on an old subject, the WE SCAR GBBR. There are tons or reviews out there already. So I'll give my impression on it.
I had many airsoft guns since I begin. I don't play airsoft, I collect airsoft guns for the fun and realism of them. My first one was a TM M3 shotgun, after a KJW M92F Elite IA,a KWA M9ptp, a Well L96 firing (after mods) at 670fps, a Cyma akm with, after mods, nothing left from Cyma and a 575fps gearbox running on lipo. After that I tried my first GBBR, a used first gen WE M4A1. I upgraded it to last gen spec and with the Co2 noozle kit: it was doing a whooping 561fps at best and I was please. I sold it and bought a brand new WE M16A3 with steel Nato engraved outer barrel: cost me 1280$. It was the beautifulest airsoft gun I had (I'm a huge fan of the M16/AR-15) but I was disapointed by the WE quality finish of the gun. After that I began having a lot of problems with the WE mags, the Co2 ones simply not working and the propane ones leaking.
So I was left with selling it at lost (I put a 300$ Stag-Arms AR-15 receiver) because I was very tired of the WE mags lol, and since I didn't want to go back to AEG/Springer, I decided to quit the airsoft thing. But at last though, I bought a brand new WE SCAR GBBR in black. I don't care if the black color is not a RS color, I find it very better dress in black.
Since I received this gun, I felt totaly in love with it. I still find the gun ugly with the stock looking like a boot (nothing compares to the majesty of the M16), but the handling, feeling, recoil, sound etc. it's just, for me, way better then the WE M4/M16 I had! This gun just gave me the kick back to airsoft. Handling it is a charm (ligther and shorter then the M16A3). It's my first experience with a foldable stock and I love it. I placed the cocking handle on the left side wich is perfect for my feeling (I'm still right handed). There are no woobles at all, it feel like a big block of strenght. The sound of the bolt carrier moving on the rail is just superb, metal vs metal in a loud clang! The recoil feel a little bit heavier then my last M4/M16. And the best thing of all is the disassembly: it takes, seriously, 30 seconds to disassemble and 1 minutes when also unscrewing the outer barrel. There is just nothing inside :|
There are still a lot of downsides: still the same WE mags so will leak sooner or later, big lack of upgrades like the other WE GBBR (compare to WA/G&P/Inokatsu). Hum... in fact that's all I can find! The gun is too short, I would have love the H version.
I already ordered the 505mm M16A3 WE inner barrel with a 220mm silencer to hide it. After I will buy Bommer bolt carrier and Ra-Tech NPAS!
