Just as the title says, I'm trying to figure out what gearboxes will fit in the VFC 416?
I picked up a P* package and the FE was sitting in a 416 shell. I'm not a huge fan of 416's and the stock gearbox wasn't included, so I'm trying to figure out what I can drop in to make it work. I have a KWA gearbox laying around, but I don't think that will fit.
Do I have any other options? I don't exactly want to pay the astronomical price for a VFC 416 gearbox..
The relatively new KWA gearboxes (2GX or 3GX) will not fit in other brand guns, even if they are version 2 also. This is because KWA puts extra reinforcements on their gearbox shells which makes them bigger than a standard V2. I don't know about their older gearboxes though.
Airsoft isn't about being the fastest guy on the field, a guy with 99and1 kill ratio, or a being the dude with 1000's of dollars worth of guns and equipment on the field. It's all about having fun shooting other dudes who want to shoot you.

Kind of depends. If you want to keep the whole bolt catch ability you'd have to use a V2 that has that. Off the top of my head I can only think of VFC with that ability built into their gearboxes. I put a JG gearbox into a VFC 416 at one point and it was ridiculously tight on the upper receiver.
