Picked this up as a replacement at the in-person store for my old SRC and the J&G Stubby I'd picked up for CQB. It looked great in the store, looked even better when I got it home and put on a couple of rail protectors, a fore-grip, and a fold-up MBUIS. Remember to pick up a battery though, mine is currently running great on a 9.6V 1400mAH that they had in the store.
The body is a great piece of work - the trademarks look beautiful on the gun, the grip is one of the nicer I've felt, and the crane stock feels damned solid. It isn't full metal, but I don't give a damn about that, as long as it holds up - and judging by the ravings I've heard from other people who have other affordable G&G's, the do quite nicely.
The FPS is respectable - I don't do much outdoor play, and I usually need my guns at 350 or lower. With this, I'm in the range of 330-340 most of the time, and shooting accurately out to 80ft. I know it can go further, but that's all I was able to track it when I was trying to zero the MBUIS I threw on the rear.
The only complaint I had was getting the battery into the crane stock. It's rather hard to get the buttplate off of the gun and I actually had trouble pulling the wire so I could connect my battery. It's eased up over time though, and as long as you have a flat-head screw-driver handy, you won't really have any worries.
All-in-all, I can say I'm happy with this gun. If I ever get to the point where it breaks down and can't be repaired again, I'll be in line to grab another one of the Raider M4s.
-Very solid, nothing creaks or feels cheap
-Blowback is very fun - it doesn't move the gun around, but seeing the bolt click back with every shot is a very satisfying feeling
-Crane stock doesn't feel like it's going to collapse - EVER
-Body doesn't feel cheap at all, but it's not metal
-450 round high-cap included - real nice for CQB combat
-Trigger is very responsive
-Buttplate - again, not a problem if you've got a flat-head screwdriver handy, but still a bit of a nuisance at first
