If anyone is wanting to buy a raider or raiders for the drum I would be interested in going halves... Im not so impressed with the drum and the raider has just the right look for one of my imagined projects.

This would be a great gun for a plunger replacement. Basically if you could fit an LS plunger in there it would work well.

Why not take the drum mag and put it in an LS?

Even if you fit the LS plunger tube in and got it to catch correctly on the new plunger rod, you wouldn't have slam fire anymore.

I wonder if you can add e-tape to the plunger to compress the spring more? That could give you decent ranges.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

What?

Like you would do to a Recon. Since the design is like the Recon, it could be possible. Like this.

I think I might get this as an alternate to my "fugly 47" (a 70' Magstrike with ugly modding). Also, the firing looks rather unreliable.

Just like the Longshot and the Recon, I believe that you could possibly mod the Raider to fire any kind of dart. Correct?

So Ice, you really haven't had any problems with jamming? I didn't notice any at all in the video which I was immensely impressed with as you can barely load a clip off with a Recon without it jamming...

Yes, it moves very smoothly indeed. No jams to date. I made a petg barrel for it, and it increased accuracy imensly, but the range dropped by 15-20'... So I took it out.

I don't like that bar at all. Maybe fiberglass composite around it? Ice, do you think there would be room in the shell for most of the bar to have a couple layers of fiberglass around it?


Try carbon fiber rods, you can get them at hobby stores, the type that sell model airplanes and trians, not hobby lobby. They come in different sizes in solid or hollow tubes. With any luck you'll find something that works

Just a question... I have never angel breached a Longshot nor do I have a sufficient amount of experience with either the LS or the Recon, so please keep that in mind when reading this question. Anyway, could you angel breach the Raider and then do a straw mod to help eliminate dead space? Would this not work?

Ice, what was the final price you paid for the gun?

I will definitely be getting this when it comes out because I play indoor wars and this would be perfect for H vs Z inside the building.

How does it look unreliable? He cocked it and then fired it. What went wrong?

The distances were rather spread out. I'm not sure I like that in a gun

That is with stock steamlines, unless you will be using stock darts with your raider I think you're good. If you are using steamlines do what I do, cut off the rubber tips and then give them a hotglue dome then trim them down about 1/8-1/4". I did that to my streamlines and I am getting consistent fire from my LS.
Slightly off topic and for people living in Philly: Is Five Guys really that great? My sister loves it but I have never gone there.

There was no need to quote his entire post and all the images. Quote specifically what you are referring to. And in this case, you were referring to absolutely nothing of use.

Look this isn't much of a range gun its more of an indoor/"fun gun" this gun has just about the moding potential of a Recon.
However it does have the 35 shot MAGAZINE witch might be helpful in a Longshot.
