Raptors are really old, so you won't really be able to mod it. It's very hard to find parts for them and when you do, they will probably be expensive.

I would say just go for a new gun that is more common, and won't cost nearly as much to be modded.

Go to the B/S/T and see if anyone will buy it for like, $50. They could probably use it for something, I dont know. Maybe a target to shoot at.

You could use it to shoot anything you can find. For example: grapes, marbles, anything that you wouldn't shoot out of a good marker.

Medatron, I'm gonna have to give you some bad news...

Nobody would really buy your gun. The players here mostly use higher-end guns. And when it comes to BE, I guess you can consider Kingman a higher-end gun as well.

BST is Buy/Sell/Trade. It's towards the bottom of the forum.

You wont get much for that unless you sell it to a friend who knows sh!t about paintball.

The raptor uses F1 threads, which means it can also use about 90% of the Spyder barrels out there. The only problem is that it means you have to TEST them before you buy. (which kinda elliminates online places like Ebay).

The Raptor is actually a clean ripoff of the old F1. I suspect Brass Eagle actually bought the rights. Not a bad gun at all. Very "burly".

They have more metal on them then your typical spyder, which means you could have some really creative machine work done if money was burning a hole in your pocket.

It might make for a neat cocker or timmy conversion. Or, you could get one of those old backspin bolts. They still make them.

Or... just sell it on Ebay. Make sure you put "Sniper", and "custom" in the title.

yea man, you have to sell it on ebay. And when you do you have to put many different names in it so more people will look at it like:

Custom Sniper Paintball Gun Marker Brass Eagle Raptor Not autococker Matrix Bushmaster DM4 Viewloader

That way when people look up those particular names your marker pops up

Just keep it for a spare gun.. It's always fun to have a gun or two laying around. We keep a couple BE original Stingrays around if friends want to play or anything. The raptor just ain't worth the sell.
