My Raptor LTD 2000. For those who don't know, only 2000 of these were made. This one has alot of aftermarket love. I'll post specs as soon as I find them all.



Upgrades:
J&J Black Ceramic barrel
external rear velocity adjuster
MaD wood grips (from Mcarterbrown)
Sharkgill sight rail (unknown mfr)
black aluminum feed plug from F4 Illustrator
Anti Double feed mod
Polished internals


Not as Pretty and Fancy as msweeneygt's Black Beauty, but like all Raptors, it's a solid workhorse, and being black, great for woodsball.

Chrome Beauty. Sorry for the quality. It was really hard to get a good picture of it without the chrome creating too much glare.



The list of mods include
1.Eagle Works chrome ported barrel
2.Chrome Bob Long style expansion chamber
3.System X drop forward
4.WGP chrome on/off ASA w/. 32 Degrees gauge
5.Anti double feed mod purchased at Lowes Hardware
*Soon to come-Chroming of the gripframe, trigger guard, and vertical ASA. Hopefully get some chrome 1911 grips. Purchase a
thumb velocity adjuster. Polish internals. Purchase Low Blow delrin bolt.

Hand milled (okay, filed.) Raptor body done for an old MCB buildoff. It did fire once as it is now but I wound up breaking off a tap in the striker and I haven't had a new one since. Instead I'm going to get a lower tube fasor ram fabricated along with a stainless steel valve (mushrooming sucks.) A delrin bolt is also on the list.

That's the elusive Golden Eagle. Made around 92, give or take a year.
