    I am buying a g&g cm16 raider long from evike, from my knowledge the longer barrel makes it more accurate correct? To increase the fps could I put a m110 or m120 to give it that fps boost or should I get a new motor if I am going to get a new spring? Any help for internal upgrades increasing accuracy or fps will be grateful I don't mind rps.

    Oh should I get it from evike or airsoftgi which will least likely give me a lemon or which would be better condition

    If you get a lemon, it likely isn't the distributors fault.. It'll be a lemon because its a CM.
    At any rate, if you want to increase range, any length over 455mm is redundant. Range and accuracy comes more from a tuned hop up, a quality barrel, and good bb's. Yes, fps does effect range.. It's a proven fact and anyone who insists otherwise needs to do some homework. The difference may be negligible, but there is indeed a difference.
    If you want a fps boost, the cheapest ways would be to fix all/any airseal leaks, getting a tighter barrel, and dropping in a fresh spring. The motors in the CM's are pretty weak (like everything else inside..), so I wouldn't push anything over a m120

    Do you have any recommended guns I could get with same price range as CM?

    So about $180 and under?
    It really depends. I would look for JG m4's or g36, CYMA AK's, ICS sportlines, King Arms m4's, or maybe a matrix/echo1 rebrand. I've never had that great of experience with any of the 3 CM's I've owned.

    a guy on my team has the Raider and loves it. I have run it once at an event and its was great. Hit past 150 ft with a 6.03 factory legnth barrel, high torque motor and m110 spring... the internals have held up for a year so far without a problem with those upgrades

    with a high torque motor and m110-120 spring with a reshim and AOE correction and TBB will be perfect for any environment

    Do you recommend I get it from evike? Or another site, I don't want to get it at a local store because they all are like $215 with blow back, where on evike it is $150 without blowback. I don't want blowback I have heard that it isn't worth it.

    its really not worth it. I have spent well over $1000 with evike without a problem... I recommend them over ASGI any day... ASGI customer service is the worst

    I have looked up the matrix, long type magnum 3000 I am seeing a lot of people saying the pinion gear breaks fast. I will look at more :p what do you think of the amp t5000l high torque?
