Our take: The NEW SCAR-L MK16 AEG by Classic Army is officially licensed by FN Herstal and is an incredible deal, considering VFC and G&G SCARs can cost upwards of $350 to $450! Complete with an FN Herstal emblem on the upper receiver, this rifle serves as the perfect platform for left and right handed shooters thanks to its ambidextrous fire selector switch, magazine release button and reciprocal charging handle!
The SCAR MK16, which FN Herstal designed for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM), is a modular assault rifle that Classic Army has adapted into a Sportline SCAR-L AEG. This airsoft gun is designed with CQB capabilities and comes equipped with a full metal Version 2 gearbox, allowing it to easily shoot between 370 and 380 feet per second (with 0.20g BBs) and making it an ideal AEG for outdoor fields. This SCAR-L is equipped with a precision inner barrel and full metal outer barrel that is covered by a one-piece polymer upper receiver. With the real steel SCAR-L having a polymer lower receiver and metal upper, Classic Army decided to equip this Sportline SCAR-L with a full polymer body to make it more lightweight and CQB friendly. The metal hop-up can easily be adjusted, ensuring that your rounds reach your targets. This AEG is wired to the rear and accepts 8.4V mini type batteries in the stock.
With over 36 inches of rail space, this assault rifle is compatible with a slew of aftermarket accessories, including tactical foregrips, flashlights and laser units. A wide variety of sights and scopes can also be attached onto the monolithic top rail that runs 16 inches long. You also can use the flip-up front and rear iron sights adjustable for windage and elevation. For close quarters combat, the rear stock can easily be folded and locked to the side, allowing you to corner tight spaces and take out targets at close range. The foldable stock can be retracted into three positions and comes with an adjustable cheek rest, improving the overall ergonomics of this rifle. For spare magazines, don’t forget to pick up a few 450-round M4/M16 tan G&G magazines.
This perfectly assembled SCAR-L by Classic Army is truly amazing with its integrated ambidextrous features, high performance specs and modular capabilities. It is incredibly lightweight for an assault rifle and can easily be upgraded with a tight bore barrel for precision shooting and increased FPS. Airsoft players looking for a versatile assault rifle will find this FN Herstal licensed SCAR-L MK16 rifle as the perfect AEG!
NOTE: This AEG now includes a programmable Swiss Arms Electronic Power Booster. This burst MOSFET unit offers 1- to 15-round burst and active braking for semi-automatic shooting. Other features include high voltage protection and low battery shutoff. This plug-and-play unit, which also prevents arching between trigger contacts, requires no disassembly of your AEG.
