I was about to pull the trigger on a new VFC Avalon when someone offered me one of the classic army MK 18 rifles currently being sold on airsoft GI for a better price.

Iíd like to save the $170 if I can so my question here is this: I know classic Army has improved recently however is it enough that they could be used for a primary without significant upgrade? I know they have a mosfet and a 6.03 barrel now but I donít know much about the other internals. Those of you who have experience with the new classic army line do you consider them good enough to have good longevity as well as performance or are they still middle tier at best?

Whatís your recommendation here?  Iím not finding a ton online so iím coming here to the place I trust most.
King Arms 'CQB' M4 -- King Arms 20" DMR -- King Arms 16" Rifle.
M81, Digital Marpat and Multicam.

I hope someone will have some good info, myself I haven't had any hands on time with the current stuff only the old stuff. And of course the old stuff has it's fair share of issues BUT I'll say they are still a favorite of mine gun wise. Great guns once you fix them up;)

I can't stop singing praise on the Avalons, especially since I just had the chance to work on one the other day, purely for FPS tuning and deans. Avalon compared to older VFC and even Krytac, are just so much more worth it.

Quick change spring guide, basic mosfet, Neodymium magnet motor, VFC gearbox (which are more receptive to internal upgrades with much less hassle than Krytac, and plenty durable), amazing shot to shot consistency, comfortable and convenient QRS furniture (I love the stock), and all around general VFC external build quality.

All of this speaks "out of the box" and plug in a battery and it shows you it can perform.

The Avalon series are phenomenal.

I've had my krytac mk2 for about a year and a half and my Avalon for a little over a year. I can honestly say since I've picked up the Avalon it's been my go to.

It's worth the money, hands down.
