I'm not sure I understand the issue on the Alpha Trooper exactly, but I am curious why it's getting a tepid review.

The more I see the clear N-Strike series, the less I like them. WM had a clear Maverick last year that looked nice, it had smoked plastic I think, but the new one looks boring. It's kinda sad to see all the empty space in these things.

My Raider doesn't have any trouble cocking, it's just the rapid-fire doesn't work for crap, it does 1 or 2 shots then the darts just dribble out and get all mashed up, misfiring against each other.

Stupid Target employees set up the Stampede with the 6-shot clip instead of the 18.

Well, it's done, I have finally split this discussion into its own thread.
