Velocity Arms HK 416 or G&G HK 416 CAS

Alright I'm in need of a little advice. I would like to know which one of these guns are of better quality and which one would you personally suggest.

Thanks for any help and advice you can give.

well if you are after a 416 look, the buy arsoft isn't the right choice for the principle reason that it ISN'T a 416. while the VA one is off a bit with regards to looks (minor things), its really damn close. that and their plastic recievers are actually a polymer. there is a video around here of the VA guy hitting the plastic receiver with a hammer and nothing happened to it.

My budget is definately under $400, I just started university and I have a lousy paying job. Anyway the velocity arms 416 is produced by JG is it not? So would you be suggesting that one over the G&G thing(apparently it isn't a 416)?

Well the VA one is a JG but with a polycarb lower. So if his budget is as he says under 400 the VA would be his best choice of these.

The JG HK416 (full black) is apparently the best 416 you can get for the price (yeah ok VFC is better). There is a huge review made by T7 in the reviews section.

I agree. I'll be getting the VK416 myself. Buyairsoft also isn't the best idea to get one...

The VFC 416 AEG is out of production right now so finding one could be a trial. VFC does have a gas blowback 416 on the coming soone list.

Folks who have the Dboys version say it's a really nice copy of the VFC.

There was a VFC one on the classifieds not too long ago.
It was listed at 800 I believe.

The G&G one is not a real HK416 don't take anything CAS or BuyAirsoft has seriously because they don't have the first clue about airsoft, they are just running a business that's it.

The Jing Gong HK416s are close but not 100% but since you are on a budget the VelocityArms one would be your best choice, Jing Gong has a good reputation.

If you can find a VFC that'd be a good choice but there's also the DBOYS HK416 which is a clone of the VFC HK416DX version, unfortunately that's out of your price range. They go for about $500.

Save up and get this baby!! Anyone got one of these or know anyone? Just wondering if they are as good as they look?

CA 416BB


I think I would like to have one in my armory.
If the US adopts it I will probably try to get one of these, they seem to be the best:

8 mm bearing bushings,
blow back action,
serial number,
CNC quad rail.

I don't know what it would cost up here. Approximately $650? Comments?

How much is it in the US? Seeing as it's Classic Army and new, I'm gonna go with 2.5 - 3x as much as the US cost. Which I doubt will be below $400USD.

I'm placing a value of roughly $550-$650. It's CA and not cheap. I'd get this, but any release date on it?

It also looks like it doesn't have "HK" anywhere on the receiver.
