    VFC KAC PDW Review

    Sadly, the gearbox on my own PDW has decided to give up the the ghost, and now that I am getting ready to do a major replacement I am wondering if there are anythings I need to bear in mind when selecting a box. I'm toying with a Systema Revolution but, not being a tech-head, I'm open to any and all advice any owner might have.

    Magpul PTS PDR-C

    What with all the back and forth, this has been a bit of a downer for me, but I am grateful to the lads for the take-down, review and so on for saving me the money...

    VFC PDW - PMC style.

    You never know when you are going to get peckish, obviously.

    VFC PDW - PMC style.

    I've been looking for a lighter platform, since I suffered an arm injury last year - even my Recce Rifle was a bit over the top. Even with the metal receiver, this little beauty is light as a feather fully loaded and still, once the innards had been tweaked, gives me all the range I want (which is easy when all guns are restricted to 1 joule by law).

    Tokyo Marui HK416D

    I don't know about the actual numbers, I am afraid. I all know from the local distributor is that more or less everyone - even the majors - had their initial allocations pruned. Not uncommon, I know, but this has caused a flap in the retailer press - hence the mutterings about hype. I'm also hearing Mid Feb for a second lot, but again, this is based on nothing more concrete than a reading of retailer news sheets, not Marui releases. I'm way out in the woods and not well informed. Tokyo/Osaka peeps might know more.

    Tokyo Marui HK416D

    I would not worry too much. The first batch appears to have been unusually small - though whether it was down to that hiccup in production or a desire to create a little hype is neither here nor there - and the n2nd lot will be here soon enough. Our local shop got three and they vanished before the boxes hit the shelves. Though I missed out, one of my students did not. The little chap stood in the snow from 6am-11am on sale day to ensure his pick.... It is lovely, inside and out. Shoots very well and I'll certainly be digging into the second lot. Edit: Anyone down Tokyo way had hands on the M320 yet? I'm tempted, but it seems too good to be true.

    You have to keep in mind that I give not one fruitcage.... The power of awesome bears me up and makes me strong. I'm no soft lad. I might have been living the good life here, but I'm still a Sheffield lad, and that means Beef on Iron..... It is a bit of a weight, but when I am using it as a backup, I only have one spare mag with me, and the launcher primary is a featherweight itself. She's such a beauty. The extra poundage is worth the cool factor.

    That depends on the person. I like to carry it in companion to my launcher, as I find it fits very nicely down my right side on it's one-point. I could use my MP7A1, or my MAC10, or MP5K for a lighter load, but nah...... Folded up, the size is not an issue even with the longer mag, and while the weight is up there, it's not a major matter. Edit: Though, in fairness to Bankz, I never take it out with my L96, as I want something super-compact as a marksman's backup (usually my G18 or MP7)

    BBQs are never off topic! I use propane. There are no real issues with the gas here, it is just that the JP-LPG laws are a little odd (and rather unevenly levelled as each prefecture - sometimes each ward - can have their own zoning regulations for the use of Propane). Out in the country in Akita, as a non-agricultural/non-industrial client, I can not have more than 5kg at any one time (and only for external use). HOWEVER, my landlord's agricultural use liscence (the family rents a farm building) means that we have a 25kg can sat outside the kitchen, fueling not just the BBQ but the range as well. However, to keep the post at least on topic, I'd like to ask if current owners who have given the thing some hammer have noticed any strain on the V-system's main spring? I'm not a heavy user and have had no issues, but the scuttlebutt locally is about breaking springs...

    Hard to get? I suppose that depends on your location and your relationship to local LP suppliers. Out in the sticks, we have a couple of lads who use propane, and buy it openly and with the knowledge of the LPGA. Still, I don't make the switch as the missus still thinks propane filled mags = dynamite.

    I don't know where you get that idea. I've had no trouble with 134a in mine. I'm not a full auto nutter, as I don't have many mags yet (and I only play in the warm, in one way or another), but I've not had a single issue so far. Personal experiences may differ mind you...
