The VFC PDW is very nice. The internals are the same for deluxe and non deluxe as far as I can tell though , and if you're serious about your internals you'll mostly gut them (piston , gears, motor in particular), so focus on the overall quality of the brand as a base for jumping off to projects . In that regard, VFC is quite good. Not perfect, but easier (than G&P) to recommend to someone new who isn't into gearboxes yet. That's the trouble with G&P. I can recommend them to experienced players and techs, but new folks are just asking for a headache . You'll be happy with a VFC whether it's deluxe or not.
