The tourney RD came stock on on a LBS purchased Raleigh M20 I had a while before it got stolen, and up until it got stolen, I thought it worked great.

Hey! I took a banged up POS department store Huffy and put all XTR components on it!
I agree with operator. The tourney derailleur will do you just fine. In fact, the Tourney may well be the only Shimano rear derailleur you'll find compatible with your chain and cassette, although for a better RD Altus or Acera might also work.
To be certain, refer to Shimano's Rear drive compatibility chart, attached below. Figure out what chain and cassette you've got. For other drive-train compatibility charts, refer to Shimano's web site. If you would like SRAM after-all, they may have similar compatibility charts, but the Shimano shifter may not work with a SRAM RD, but I could very well be wrong here.
