VFC KAC PDW Review

Recommended Posts

Just got word from EbayBanned that there will be a "China made KAC PDW". Had to happen sooner or later I guess. I'm still getting a VFC one over the ACM version.

Awesome set up, going to be rocking it on Jan 4th? More sbr all around. Cameron with his m7a1, you with your kac pdw.

 

Gonna be using it this sunday the 14th. I need to get it field legal though. I still have not got the chance to snip some coils off the spring. The ROF is scary fast. Its actually unnerving.

Here are some pics of the "completed" gun.

Here are some pictures of the battery/PEQ setup. I attached paracord to the battery so it could be removed easily without damage. I also removed the deans plugs and used these super tiny bullet connectors found here..

They are great for tight places and are gold plated.

The mosfet and battery was a tight fit but its in there...

Ukau, thanks a ton of the pictures man.

 

If you dont mind, keep them coming, im really digging the setup with the PEQ-15, looks incredible.

 

How much room was there for the wiring btw? Was it a tight fit for the extra mm or two the signal wire for the fet takes up?

 

Some guns are stupidly tight in that area ie most ar15 variants.

why battery sling it when he has the battery in the peq 15?

Larger capacity battery. Although, when it comes to Lipos, I find that a 1300mah lipo lasts as long as a 2200mah NiMh/NiCd battery. Strange.

 

Personally, I'll either leave the PEQ-15 on the left side so that it won't be noticeable to anyone looking at it, or if I like the look enough, put it on the top rail with a Aimpoint M3 with a KAC Cantilever Mount sighting over it.

 

Good pics Ukau!

Everything is tight in the PEQ unit, but it fits. IMO a mosfet is mandatory with a lipo. I played with the PDW for 1 day without the mosfet and there is significant wear on the trigger switch. The trigger response is crisp"er" with a mosfet and the active breaking prevents alot of wear and tear on the gearbox. It took a few hours to get everything nice and secure but its worth it.

VFC just came out with a Uncle Mike's Push Button QD style mount: QD VFC Tactial Swivel Mount ( Short Type )

 

This is specifically for the VFC KAC PDW's lower receiver attachment points but will probably work for any Push Button QD Mount. So instead of butchering a real QD Push Button Mount, you can just buy one of these.

 

I'm kinda disappointed that they didn't think to include that with the VFC KAC PDW by default... but then again, for only US$10 at least they made sure to keep it inexpensive.

 

Also available separately:

* VFC PDW Grip

* VFC PDW Folding Front Sight

* VFC PDW Silencer

Another one from RA-TECH

 

I may just have to go with lipo now.

I wonder if they had to modify the inside of the PDW to make enough space for the battery? I'm not entirely sure how else they could have achieved that result without doing so. :huh:
