For: Combat Machine M4 Raider Shorty w/ Polymer RIS Airsoft Gun (Tan/CQB) (Battery and Charger Package)Product Information:
Possibly the best rifle I have ever purchased. Although the body is made of plastic, this is by far no cheap plastic. It is strong and very very sturdy. The mag it came with has a very realistic feel and weight to it. I prefer the added weight and tend to stay away from anything light when it comes to airsoft. This rifle has some pretty good distance, and has a great kick to it, but of course GBB is the best in kicks.
Battery is very good, lasts for about 4 hours (3.8)
All in all, if you want a rifle that is sturdy, has a very nice and balanced weight to it, with very high reliability to it, this is it. I highly recommend this rifle.
NOTE: For some reason people have a very hard time removing the flash hider in the Raider's, here is how I did mine.
1) On the flash hider, there is a black screw embedded in there, you cant miss it. Take a knife or something very sharp and just carve the area around the screw to the point where you can take a pair of small pliers or tweezers and take it out.
2) Take a very high powered blow dryer, set it on high, and place it literally next to the flash hider and go around in circles. Do this for about 5 minutes (being that it is a good blow dryer). Make sure you evenly spread the head around the flash hider.
3) Take a sturdy cloth and place it around the flash hider, and with your choice of pliers or hands (I used my hands) I twisted it off. If it still gives you resistance, continue with step 2 and repeat.
Suppressor: This Rifle needs a 14mm CCW (counter clockwise). If you want a cheap, but very realistic suppressor I recommend the MadBull Gemtech "Blackside" Barrel Extension (TAN) or your choice of color. The Black looks good on it. Basically anything that has CCW is good. However, the "OutBack" suppressor by MadBull is really for a pistol (it says so on the bag it came in -_-) but it can also be used with this rifle, though, it is very small (about the size of a standard pen) but still looks good, but not as realistic.
Very VERY well made
Mag feels realistic with excellent weight
Best CQB I have ever had
Mag "wiggles" just a bit while locked in(not a problem for me, just listing it)
Thats it, performance is excellent.
