VFC 416 GBB Upgrades

Hi all!
I'm about to take the plunge and get the VFC 416 GBBR. What parts should I up grade first and where to get them. I understand that most of them have a charging handle issue. Which brand makes a better one that will git it? Does anyone make a NPAS for the VFC? What barrel would you recomend and also what hop up rubber would you recomend?
Any and all help would and will be greatly appreciated!

NPAS aren't available, but a velocity reduction valve is now available, which will take the power down to <350fps.

I haven't had any charging handle issues in my 416C.

Barrel, I have a Prometheus 6.03 barrel waiting to be installed, along with an A+ hop up rubber.

Had it for about a half year now.

The only major problem I've had with it, is that loading nozzle didn't feed a round properly, so it ended up jamming against the nozzle of the bolt... that ended up damaging the nozzle tip. Replacement is easy to find (I bought 5 of them, just for future replacement if it happens again), but it's apparently a known issue. I got the v3 nozzle, which is apparently much better, and I haven't had another failure to feed or jam since then, so I may not even need all 5 of these spares, now.

Other than that, I haven't used this gun as much as I'd like to.

Is it the vfc hk416c u have? Or the G&P custom 416c?
I like this gbbr sooo much but I haven't buy it since the review are so bad on this rifle,
I heard even though u have the v3 nozzle install it, the ROF is still very low on full auto is that true?

VFC 416C.

The ROF is more than acceptable (to me) on it. I can get you an ROF reading if you'd like, but I don't see anybody needing more than 700rpm.

Yes, there is. I have a few in stock. Hit me by PM. If you've already done that... in which case, I'm sorry I haven't replied yet. Been extremely busy with work and have been falling behind on PM's. I'll get to your PM soon.
