Will the 7.62 model work in the S&W MP10?
Yes, with a slight modification to prevent binding. The Raptor does drop right into the upper of the S&W - and cycles smoothly. However, with the bolt/bolt carrier installed, it will bind up.
The hole in the front of the Raptor is a smaller diameter than the stock S&W unit and there is a small "step" in the Raptor right near the front end where the larger trough transitions to the smaller diameter hole. This is where the problem lies.
There is no step in the trough in the S&W stock charging handle.
To mod it so it works, take a small file (chain saw file works) and make the front of the Raptor equal the trough, i.e. remove the step (see pic). Dremel to polish it, put aluminum black on if desired and PRESTO have a working Raptor in an S&W M&P10.
