Umarex's Full Metal HK 417 is the first of airsoft AEG of it's kind to hit the market. It is very similar to the HK 416 except that it's real steel counterpart uses 7.62 caliber rounds so the magazine and lower receiver is larger than the HK 416.
It is of a full metal construction and has been engraved with HK Trademarks as it is licensed by H&K. The ergonomic pistol grip is made out of nylon fiber and is very comfortable to grasp. The 6 position adjustable crane stock is also made of nylon fiber and has very authentic H&K markings as it should. The butt pad itself is made of rubber which is very comfortable when applied against the shoulder.
The HK 417 features a solid, CNC Aluminium, free float rail system and two sling attachment points are mounted at the front and at the back. The internals are of exceptional quality as from VFC with self shimming gears which makes for a very smooth operating system.
Another new feature of the HK 417 is that that the version 2 gearbox has now been upgraded to a V2.2 gearbox. The new features consists of the motor being at a steeper angle which allows the use of traditional pistol grips and anything that will come out in the future. The top part of the gearbox is a little thinner as well so the receiver of the HK 417 can be thinner in comparison to what you're used to seeing on a traditional M4/SR25 AEG.
It shoots at a very consistent 360 fps and consistency is what you look for. It's great for most CQB areas but if it's still too high or too low for you, we can change that!
