would not be terribly surprised... after all the JG 416 is a massive hit and for it's price it's hard to compete.

You really can't compare the exterior build quality of the VFC meticulously crafted and CNCD from aluminum billet to JG the plastic bodied HK 416. The VFC doesn’t just look like a weapon but also feels and handles like one as well. It does not feel like a toy and if you didn’t know it was Airsoft you would think you were holding the real thing.

Yes, but you could buy a JG for much less, fit it with aftermarket externals and still be paying far less than if you bought a VFC right off the bat.

What options for externals are there other than the Hurricane kit?

PTW with real 416 upper, custom CNC'd lower? You'd have the most expensive AR-variant airsoft gun around...

I think the Hurricane kit is 300 bucks by itself

BTNP the point is that the JG model wouldn't effect the VFC in sale they are in two different market segments. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the JG as well. Its qualities are just different than the VFC version.

On UNCo the Huricane kit lists at $490 USD vs. $450 for the plain VFC 416, or $120 for the JG 416.
