Back in 2006 when the A1 debuted, the team I played for got a sponsorship from APS (WDP). The entire team got A1s and versions for $385! We were some of the first people to get these guns.

Some of the team members had markers that had issues. Mine and a few others didn't! WDP/APS was very quick to respond to the issues that the team members had. And once they were fixed, everyone loved them. The gun itself needs to be set up properly by someone that knows what they are doing. Once they are setup, they are money! The guns shoot fast and accurate. However, the original internals can be kinda gas hogs. However if you play at a field that has good fills or you have the new internals you'll be fine.

Overall, I loved my A1. One of the best markers I owned. And its sad to see such a great company fade from the sport.

Owned an Angel 1 for a little less than a year. Played several tournaments with it on a team that shot all Angel 1s. Our A1's went down constantly. Mine worked well in the beginning and soon enough started giving me too many problems and I got rid of it.

Used to be sponsored by Angel and rocked an A1 at an NPPL event in Tampa a while back. One of my teammates guns ended up with the bolt blowing forward due to excess pressure and not allowing him to shoot for the rest of the game because the inner gasket blew out.

Other than that I've loved these guns for a long while. Very temperamental but definitely worth it if you get a reliable and well used one

Overall, now its a solid pickup for a mid range low maintenance gun . However, due to lack of parts, if something screws up, youll have to pay an arm and a leg to get it. Also, they revamped the eye covers on the flys, the stock ones were terrible to get off.

Angel Paintball Sports Angel 1 Although it doesn't need more than some oil very often, maintenance (regulator rebuilds) are a royal pain. The OLED board as a stock option is amazing as well (USB updatable as well!)
