Elite Alpha Trooper: See ya, Rampage!
Folks have always complained about comfort in the Raider/Rampage design. The side-mounted magazine chamber is mostly to blame for that. I also find that I enjoy the shotgun-style grip on the Alpha Trooper compared to the foregrip-style of the Raider/Rampage. And, while it's obvious that the Elite Alpha Trooper will still have a slightly lower capacity compared to the Rampage's 25-dart Drum Magazine, I still think it's even HARDER to contend with now.
Both the Rampage and Alpha Trooper lack a stock, so they're on even terms there. They both have the direct plunger system and, while they haven't been compared head-to-head just yet, will likely get the same amount of range performance. So while the Rampage will still have a few more darts than the Elite Alpha Trooper, I think the comfort level easily separates the two. To me, it's a win for the Alpha Trooper and a much harder sell for the Rampage.
