What is value? It is a quality by which a person or thing is appreciated or well regarded. This way, a player will be highly valuable if he tries his best not to let his team down in a game; or a replica will have great value to its owner if it fires like no other replica previously tested.

Avalon, VFC's older sister, launches a top-end replica. From the high-quality Crusader accessories such as the tactical body controls or the rifle strap holder, to the internal parts which include, among other, the new ECS gearbox and Maple Leaf rubber.

For the motoring world lovers we will make the same comparison this manufacturer likes to make: if VFC is a Mercedes-Benz in the airsoft world, Avalon would be the AMG range. The top of the range..


Why does it stand out?

The Avalon series is divided into two models: Carbine and CQB, which are distinguished by their length: 9" and 14.5" respectively. Although both come in rigid carrying cases. At the moment it is only available in black, but chances are it will soon be released in bronze Calibur series colour too.

The design of the muzzle is based on the Bulgarian AK74 SU Krinkov, taking advantage of its inside cone-shape to cool the gases before they are mixed with outside air. This design is intended for CQB as it reduces the flashes and recoil. Furthermore, its "crown" finish is intended to break through glass. Although these are all non-practical features in terms of airsoft and are just purely aesthetic characteristics.

The hand guard carries the M-Lok system developed by Magpul as an evolution from MOE Slot System launched in 2007. It has slots in the 4-axis where we can attach the rails without removing the hand guard.

La queue de détente droite est une option choisie par beaucoup de tireurs pour réduire le parcours du doigt. Présentant moins de résistance grâce aux réglages proposés par Avalon, ce genre de gâchette permet également d’obtenir une réponse plus rapide en jeu ce qui, comme nous le savons tous, signifie : éliminer avant d’être éliminé.

The straight triggers are an option that many shooters choose to reduce the trigger-pulling range, while it offers less resistance thanks to lightweight designs such as the one provided by this Avalon replica. This enables a faster response during game play, and we all know what this means: to eliminate the enemy or going back to respawn.


Crusader is a brand specialising in quality components. This model contains several of those components:

-M4 Ambidextrous Tactical Charging Handle Latch, an element that helps us take advantage of the functional boltcach.

-M4 extended magazine release, it is not fixed, making the anchoring system of the belt more comfortable.

-M4 Extended magazine release, it facilitates rapid and instinctive reload even with heavy gloves.
