Our take: The NEW VFC/ Elite Force HK417 embodies the evolution of the modern battle rifle, combining the versatility and maneuverability of an M4 carbine with the power and accuracy of a precision marksman's rifle. The HK417, developed by Heckler & Koch, was designed to fill the demand for a higher caliber rifle in an easy to wield size, allowing the operator to quickly send more powerful and accurate suppressive fire down range. The Elite Force HK417, manufactured by VFC and licensed by Umarex, perfectly replicates the look, feel, and action of the real steel compact battle rifle, right down to the authentic pistol grip and crane stock.
Unlike the HK416, the HK417 is designed to fire a larger 7.62 caliber bullet, which is why the magazine, receiver, and buffer tube have been enlarged. VFC has flawlessly recreated the external shape and size of the modern HK417 battle rifle, making this one of the most realistic and high quality AEG that we carry. However, this AEG is not just about external design, the HK417 features VFC's renowned CNC machined gearbox paired with a factory installed tight bore inner barrel giving this AEG unparalleled power and accuracy. Whether you are an avid airsoft collector or a serious airsoft marksman looking for the next best rifle on the market, the VFC/ Elite Force HK417 is sure to surpass your expectations!
Fully licensed Heckler & Koch trademarks are prominently displayed on the upper and lower receiver of the HK417 AEG, giving it a nearly identical look to the real steel battle rifle. The buffer tube is an exact replica of an actual 7.62 Mil-Spec buffer tube, and is fully compatible with most aftermarket .308/ 7.62 caliber buffer tube mounted stocks. VFC took pains to make certain that every component o their NEW HK417 AEG perfectly matched the Heckler & Koch battle rifle, including the re-designed HK417 ergonomic nylon fiber pistol grip and crane stock. The battery compartment, located within the crane stock, is extremely easy to access and features a large amount of room for nunchuck or buffer tube size batteries.
Unlike traditional battle rifles, the VFC HK417 is compact and relatively lightweight making it much easier to maneuver in both close quarters and outdoor environments. Its retractable stock and twelve inch barrel make it one of the most versatile and compact DMRs (designated marksman rifles) on the market! Adding to the overall realism of the HK417 is the CNC machined aluminum rail system, featuring over forty inches of rail space for all types of tactical accessories. Another hyper realistic feature of the VFC HK417 is the functional charging handle and bolt catch, which allows you to easily make adjustments to your hop-up chamber. Pressing the bolt release button slams the mock bolt home with a realistic "snap".

Battery Charger Recommendation: Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging), but more importantly, also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
