but just to add my 2 cents on the Raider. I bought mine around mid-2010, I got the clear version, and now I'm selling it off to my friend (minus stock and drum mag)
This gun's been quite frustrating because it jams with 6 round clips - it's fine with the drum mag, but not with the mags from my LS and Recon. Secondly once I modded it, slam firing became a lot difficult due to jamming issues.
Finally, this is probably because I'm a noob modder, but I didn't feel that all the time and effort I spent making my Raider better was as rewarding as modifying my LS, NF or my friend's Furyfire. I got the AR out, but the faux barrel still made the ranges a crap shoot. You can saw it off but it'll look ugly as hell, and unbalanced weight wise
I did a range test of all my guns, and the Longshot front gun and Secret Strike was achieving very similar ranges to a gun that cost me 59 bucks.
In all I'm happy I got a nice stock, 35 streamlines and a drum mag out of it. Screw the gun.
