I just got this gun today and had some time to shoot it for quite a while. Since this is a cqb weapon your not going to get insane range but you will get some decent range up 100 feet, making it perfect for cqb. The build quality on this gun is amazing for 150 bucks. The lower and upper reciever is polymer as well as the RIS system. Polymer is much stronger and much more durable than regular ABS plastic found on most echo 1's and JG's. Performance is surprisingly good for a gun thats under 200 dollars. I own a KWA KM4 as my primary feild weapon and I bought this for a backup/cqb weapon, but do to the performance of this gun, you could use this as you primary. The trigger responce is pretty fast on semi auto, perfect for cqb. G&G makes a very good high cap as well, but I recommend some mid caps for best performance.
My only gripe for this gun is the crane stock battery compartment. G&G should have taken a little more time to make puting in the battery a little easier for the user. When you open the stock, there are four different parts that come out, a cap, a tri-hole battery spacer, a butt-stock lock and the rubber butt plate. The spacer you don't need if your using a butterfly type battery so discard this. When it's all said and done, your left with a cramped space to out you wireing in the stock. So you have to cram it all in in hopes that you don't pinch the wireing which I already did.
All gripes asside, for 150 bucks, you can't go wrong with a G&G cm16 raider as a backup gun or as a primary cqb weapon.
Very fast trigger responce
Very light gun
335-350 fps, perfect cqb velocity
High strength polymer
Nice G&G high cap
Slight mag wobble
limited range(good enough for cqb)
good luck getting that orange flashider off.
Cramped wireing space in stock.
Not as good as my KWA KM4, duh.
