World’s First Practical Mass-Produced GBB Machine Gun – The VFC M249
We all have been waiting for this gun to finally hit the stores right! It seems that the time is now. VFC just launched the official website for the M249 GBB and here’s a teaser to what to expect from the gun. Asia based airsoft players are able to enjoy the gun already as it’s out there the rest of the world,… well let’s hope it will take not so long to get it!
Enjoy the quick read and head right over to the main page afterwards.
VFC positioned the M249 as the world first practical mass-produced GBB machine gun which not only improved the lightweight features, but also added many unique new designs, especially the new BB and gas supply design. Players can enjoy the fun of playing, and experience many practical functions too.
VFC’s M249 GBB utilizes aluminum alloy for the main structure, which greatly reduces the weight of the whole product. This provides a weight reduction from almost 10 kg (if manufactured using full steel material) to about 4 kg with the VFC aluminum design.
Internally, all key components are still made from steel, so durability is retained where it matters most! This design not only reduces the weight, but also maintains the structural strength of the M249 platform.
