I just sold this gun due to sponsorship but this gun was great the whole 2007 year for me. I purchased this gun the first of the year and played with it all year long. The gun's main feature is the ability to shoot crazy brittle paint, this is a huge advantage when it comes to tournaments. I did have one problem with my A1, I put an HP tank on the gun and it damaged the internals. I know there is a mod for making your A1 HP ready, but I would rather but a LP tank. After I got that problem fixed, I never had another problem with it. The gun shot great. There is hardly any kick, but to compared to a spool gun, it is noticeable. I do have a couple of complaints about the gun, first the eye covers have been the worst part of the gun since they came out. I think WDP could think of something better. Angel only gives you the option of the optical switch gun, I think they could make an micro switch option for those who prefer it over the optical board. Besides those complaints, it was a great gun!

First time i held this gun i actually thought it was too small for me.
Being tall and having long arms felt akward, until i got instructions from
members of Stockholm Joy Division, after that it has been great!
The design is great, thou i feel the backplate annoy some, scratching the
googles if setup is too tight.
Out of the box this gun is great, only thing i feel is needed for it could be
a smaller bore <.691 to match the fragile Hellfire paint we used.
I only shot this gun using a Velocity and that i had upgraded with a gangstar chip to keep up,
and allow for setting stack tension.
Before i got this gun broken in it was somewhat of a airhog,
but after 4-5 cases it got alot better.
In cons i said the ram was negative part, well, not everyone have problems
with it, i havent, but after all you cant take it apart and grease/swap
orings correctly so i had to put it in the cons list.
I've done 2 real services on my marker and now it has almost 50.ooo.
Love this gun and going to keep it forever!

Hey guys,

I was one of the first testers of the Angel 1, and I was drastically disappointed with Angel on this one.

The angel 1 shot like crap. The gun had a spread over the chrono that was ridiculous, and it was blending more balls then it actually fired.

The angel 1 felt very uncomfortable and bunched up.

Big disappointment. I have not owned an Angel since.

I've had my A1 for a few months now.

First off, it was a great marker to make the jump from Mechanical to Electro. Lots of fun to shoot most of the time (when it works!). The barrels they give you are too large of bore, but you can pickup the extended kit for a good price and all together it's a pretty decent barrel kit. Performance on the marker is good, but I found it skipping some balls every now and then...even with a fast Vlocity w/gangstar feeding it.

The ram is totally faulty...mine just hisses air now and my gun is not usable. Of course I can send it in for warranty service, which takes a month, and have it fixed, but I haven't as of yet. Also, the first generation eye covers are probably the worst design ever. You MUST buy the 3-piece covers if you buy the marker. Also, the ribbon eyes are extremely fragile...so becareful.


If you are looking for a high-end electro marker with decent features at a good price, this is a good start! I would totally buy this over an Etek2 or something like that.

Wait till the Fly kit comes out and they fix the stupid ram/covers.

I picked this up new, and got a nice discount back in 2007.

This was the worst high end marker I have ever owned. In 2012 I highly recommend you stay away from angel markers.

A.There are way too few angel techs and the marker is overly complex
a. Angel is out of business
b. The LPR requires disassembley of the marker to tinker
c. Your roto breach will loosen pretty easily
d. harsh on paint with nobody to help you tune!

If you want an angel to be OG, try something from the G7/G7 fly platform, A4's shot fine too.
