customising cm16 raider

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a g&g cm16 raider short, satisfied with the internals at the moment and am looking to upgrade it externally, my preferred build would be a 10" outer barrel with a flash suppressor and a 10" free float rail, i have found some parts already, just wanted some advice/alternatives that you guys suggest :)

Can't seem to find any decent priced outer barrels in the uk....so any pointers there would be good,

i found this for the rail:

any advice/feedback is appreciated

:)

in short be careful about bothering to upgrade the outer barrel n such....

the Raider is like a 3 piece outer barrel but yup you can rip that out....

yes you can put in a slightly longer metal ris if you wish too

 

I presume at some point you will fit a longer inner barrel too

 

so probably £50 for ris and outer maybe just over

add in a longer inner barrel - say £20 perhaps - looking at maybe £70

 

or flog short Raider and buy a CM18 or something like that

 

yes it can be done - just pointing out maybe keep/sell short Raider option

any idea where to get an outer barrel for? i know most barrels will be compatible with the receiver

CM18 is 23cm rail with 2cm connector to upper receiver.

Outer barrel and inner barrel is 1cm longer than rail.

here's some specs of gun's inner barrels for those unsure of what is what

 

Raider's come as short or long
really need to have a medium imho but anyway inner barrel lengths:

Raider S = 233mm
Raider L = 357mm
Carbine is 357mm
but a short or light Carbine exists @ 275mm I think

CM18's = 275mm inner barrel
GC16's = 330mm

G26's are 260mm

so this sort of 233 to 357 on Raider plus 275 on other guns
is why they didn't make a mid Raider ???

SR Range

SRS = 205mm
SRL = 260mm - not exactly that long
SRXL = 330mm

300BOT - 205mm - why is called the friggin 300 then ???

 

FireHawk is like 120mm

 

The easiest option if you you wanna go up a slightly bit longer is an outer barrel extension

normally 2" or 4" - anything inbetween can be hidden inside flash hider or suppressor

 

All I was trying to point out the cost in putting on a metal ris, new outer and still it being a raider

you can change and alter what you like but it is still a raider....

It is your gun so do what you want but tbh me thinks you might wanna consider as is

or upgrade to CM18 or SRL or something might be easiest option that was all

save a couple of quid

 

outer barrel - well you "could" just attack the thing with a dremmel cutting off the front sight and grinding away

so the barrel will sit inside the ris

 

plop on a £10 suppressor 100x35ish and she should like nice

I say 35mm but you might need a 30mm diameter suppressor to fit just inside the ris

 

same gun cheap easy new looking front end - you will have lost front sight but either a cheapo set of flips

or other fancy 552 or whatever floats your boat

yeah, hopefully it looks good when it all comes together

 

Sorry about my previously reply, I'm too cheap (poor) to replace parts to personalise my gun, I just bought these from FMA:
