    APS CAM870 Impressions

    Anyone know if these are skirmishable in the uk with the standard setup? (ie no crazy rubber balls )

    VFC MP7A1 Navy GBB

    I was under the impression that the stock valve could be shimmed to reduce fps. Is this not the case?

    I've just ordered 5 amg high output valves from ehobby. Slightly cheaper at 15 bucks and I've seen the performance created by them which is astonishing frankly. Ups the fps though so will need to shim the flute valve.

    Silly question for everyone. A mate of mine wants to buy one but he one he has found is an "Asia edition". What does that mean? Full trades?

    VFC HK417 GBBR

    Thanks for the info. Shame vfc can't invest in decent hop rubbers. Not a huge issue though just seems a bit silly to put a *suitcase* hop rubber in a such a rif. Saying that new vfc gbbrs do, in my opinion, come out of the box dripping in lube so that may be the main issue.

    Nice one cheers. What don't you like about the hop unit? Any idea what it chronos at? What gas were you using? What's it like in FA? /end of Spanish Inquisition
  9. Sorry to be pedantic but 150ft is just over 45m. I know you said approx but that's not even close.

    That was the early gen models only anyway. The new gen models are pretty good.

    The switch on the top of the mag is to disable the bolt catch right?

    Kwa is 160 but falls a bit short so there is a bit of extra room in there. Plus the vfc is a flash hider length longer than the kwa.

    VFC MP7A1 Navy GBB

    Can't wait! Can you do me a favour and measure the length of the inner please? I'm tempted to use a 200mm orga wide bore but I'm not sure if that's too long.

    Vfc is nicer externally but the tm outperforms it in every way IMO.

    VFC MP7A1 Navy GBB

    Weird that mine did. I'm pretty sure it'll rub off anyway. Yeah hope so mate. A lot of money for a can and flash hider though when I've only got one mag.

    Cheers. The 6mm marking is on the underside of the receiver at the rear. The review was copied and pasted from a private forum. I'm sorry I forgot to change it on here to say it was you that helped me hugely. Sorry man. PS my kwa flashider fits the vfc perfectly. It's just a little thinner.

    VFC MP7A1 Navy GBB

    Here's my "review" Dear friends What follows is a review by someone who has never written a review and arguably poor at doing so do keep that in mind when reading please. Initially the VFC MP7 had terrible reviews. Atrocious cool down and misfeeds etc. Of course it looked pretty and was 1:1 scale but I'm not one for wallhangers so I forgot all about it. Recently I started trying to find any more info on them and started talking to a bloke in the uk via pm that had one and said his was awesome and perfectly skirmishable. Further research followed without any results culminating in me buying one anyway. :s I decided not to buy any spare mags until A: I knew if it actually worked or not and B: when I have actually sold stuff to pay for them. Bought a "Navy" railed version from JustCauseAirsoft on Sunday at the Ambush Compound game. Initial impressions: -It's light. Lighter than the tm or the kwa. With the mag in, the weight apparently matches the real steel so I expect vfc had to put the body on a diet to make it match as that's the kind of detail they get a stiffy for. -It's the right size!!!! So so important. As soon as it was pointed out that my trusty kwa was 0.8:1 vs RS it has bugged me ever since. -The body has a nice Matt finish and the trades are perfect too. (Apart from the hidden 6mm written on the underside. I'm hoping this will come off with some thinners) -flash hider is also bigger (read: actually to scale) than the tm or kwa so the HK suppressors I have for them don't fit. You can however buy a vfc HK suppressor designed specifically for the VFC mp7. Functions: -Selector has a really solid clunk to it. Much more so than the tm or kwa -Racking the bolt you can feel the weight of it but also the recoil spring feels a little weak for the weight of the bolt. I have been informed that the bolt's guide rails are a little rough when new so you can either wear them in or polish them a bit. I've noticed things improve already so I'll stick with the natural option. -Bolt release is actually correct! On the tm and kwa you have to push the release up whereas on the VFC you have to push down as per the RS. Initially the bolt release was very stiff but has worn in nicely now. The left hand side was loose out of the box which was disappointing but after tightening the 0.9mm grub screw it's much better. Must admit it does feel a bit flimsy though. Maybe a possible weak point?... -Stock is nice and solid with far less play than my kwa and tm ever had. Has 4 positions: closed, open and two in the middle. -Mag catch is pretty standard. Does what it says on the tin. -Iron sights....we're removed before even looking at them. -Mags seem solid as hell. You can load them directly into the beebee channel if that makes sense which makes it sooo much easier to do. Fill valve is one of the nice ones that is nice and audible when filling and stops making noise when full. -Hop up is very easily adjustable via the plastic Allen tool inserted in the hole above the flash hider. Far easier to adjust than the kwa which clicks and can be very difficult to find a "sweet spot". Performance: I was anxious about it actually being skirmishable especially when put up against the kwa and tm but so far I have been very surprised. -Chronos in at 325-330fps with 0.2g ammo on propane at room temp with hop set for 0.3s. -The recoil is incredibly strong! Needs to be felt to be understood really. To me it's a selling point on it's own as it's an absolute hoot! #middleclasslingo -Rate of fire is decent. Sounds about the same as the RS I've seen on YouTube but I won't actually be using this on FA anyway so it's not a big deal to me. -Cooldown. This was what I was most worried about. Using propane, it can do a full mag on fast semi auto without any noticeable cooldown at room temp. Pretty stoked about this as that means it's gonna be skirmishable for me for at least 6 months of the year. Decided to see how far it would go on one charge of gas so reloaded the mag (didn't re gas) and got another 40 rounds on semi with ease. It even still locked back. The shots felt noticeably weaker for the second mag but in fairness the mag was now very cold as it had done a full mags worth on fast semi about 60s ago. -Range/accuracy is decent. Effective range is about 150ft with 0.3s. My kwa is more accurate at that range. I get the feeling the vfc hop rubber isn't the best but because it uses a vsr hop it can changed for a decent quality one in future if I can be arsed haha -Feeding/stoppages. Moral of the story here is use top quality ammo. If the ammo is soft it runs the risk of getting smashed when the bolt returns causing stoppages and possible damage to the nozzle/hop/loading ramp/*insert part here. I accidentally used blaster devils once and had a stoppage after 8 shots. A round had been chopped in half causing a jam. Luckily no damage and lesson learnt. I've been using madbull "perfect" 0.3g ammo without issue. Haven't had any misfeeds so far (circa 400 rounds) although when I got the mag really f-ing cold to see how it would cope on full auto (out of interest) the odd bb would roll out of the barrel. That was when the hop wasn't really set and have since set it for 0.3s and that issue hasn't reoccurred. Again, it's not an issue for me as I won't be using FA but something to consider if you are interested in buying one. Other points of interest..... -I have learnt that the outer barrel is plastic including the threads for the flash hider. Wasn't impressed to hear this and I'm gonna have to be really careful when chairsofti.... Er I mean kicking *albatross* and taking names. -Hop and barrel setup is a vsr setup which is great as it's easy to find spares. I've got my eye on an orga widebore for the future. -Recoil spring does feel a little weak for the weight of the bolt as I have mentioned. I'm guessing this is because when the mags start to cool and the psi drops, the bolt can still fully cycle. I'm very impressed with how easily the bolt locks back so far and IMO this is probably down to the slightly too weak spring. Conclusion/summary (for those who couldn't be frigged to read the above drivel) Good *suitcase*: -Beautiful externals -1:1 sizing -surprisingly good performance -cheap (ish) at £260 -easily to adjust hop -uber recoil -decent range and gas economy -nice trades Bad *suitcase*: -mags are 50-55 quid a pop in uk although 41 bucks from HK -some of the controls feel a little flimsy -internals made out if plastic cheese (2nd hand info) -standard version doesn't come with side rails which have to be bought separately....wtf -very picky with ammo
