Seems like the VFC 416 AEG was briefly back in stock at some HK retail spots like UNCo at the start of Feb.
The factory could have just been clearing some old product to make room for the new GBB 416 model. That will be an interesting item to see.
In the meantime one will turn up for sale in the classifieds every couple months. You just have to be patient.
