Is it worth giving the ravener two sets of sycthing talons+ Devourer to get10 ranged shots? or is it a waste of points?

For a shooting weapon on the ravenors, though I feel it's better to keep them moving into assault, I would go with spinefists. This gives you re-rolls to hit and an extra shot, at the cost of a point of strength, which I would say is worth it (average 3 hits instead of 1.5). Also the devourer has 6" more range, which could be the difference between assaulting, and sitting and getting shot, where the spinefist has equal range to the ravenor's charge, which means you aren't loosing a chance to assault if you shoot.
i agree if you have a few points to spare they wont be wasted on giving your raveners a range attack after they deep strike. as to the one i would prefer well they both give you the same # of shots the same AP the devourer has 6" more range and one more strength than the spine fists but the fists are twin linked which taking into account of the raveners sub par ballistic skill it could be argued either way effectively but i think i like the deathspitters more for the higher strength. and if used correctly with lictors assault range wont be a problem.
Um... Are you using the new codex? In either case the amount of scything talons you have doesn't effect how many shots you get I don't think.

Spinefists looks like the best choice overall. That's what I've equipped mine with, and so far it's been working rather well, I even forgot my re-rolls.
