I bought this forever ago, and loved it. Fast, very fast, decently reliable marker, nothing too special. My biggest problems were lack of eyes, which I corrected by sending it up to a master tech to have them installed and they work great. I hate the stupid car charger, and ended up breaking the charger and had to replace the board with something battery operated and picked up a virtue for it. good marker, if you are looking to pick it up cheap you are getting a good buy

The Angel A4 is a solid gun, with great performance. Mine has never let me down.

Comes with: Gun, 3 volumisers, barrel, charger, manual, oil, and tool kit

Pros:

Speed - The A4 board goes up to 30bps. That being said, it is very unlikely that you will be able to get it firing that fast with the stock board, as the only mode that allows an MROF of 30bps is semi-auto. Rest assured though, it is pneumatically capable of firing faster than most loaders out there.
Efficiency - The efficiency of the A4 is pretty good, maybe slightly above average for a poppit valve marker. On average, I get about 1700 shots from a 68/4500 tank.

Kick - The marker does not have much kick at all. There is a bit, but when properly set up and tuned, not anywhere near enough to throw off accuracy.

Reliability - Overall, the gun has been very problem-free. I've never had a single leak from it. However, I bought the gun in new in 2008, and the 4 years of inactivity caused the battery to die fairly quickly. It's been very solid otherwise.

Value - I got the gun for $150, brand new. You will not find a better gun for the price. Granted, if I had bought it new in 2004, I would have given the value a 3 or 4, but that is strictly because I would personally never spend over $750 on a paintball gun.

Appearance - The gun is absolutely gorgeous. The milling is incredible, and the annodising is excellent.

Comfort - I find the gun to be incredibly comfortable. I personally love the 90 degree frame, but if you don't, you won't like the feel of the gun. It just comes down to personal preference. The stock trigger is good, but I personally bought an MT trigger for mine. It has an optoswitch, which you may or may not like - again, just personal preference.

Features - For the time, the A4 had one of the nicest stock boards available. The screen makes programming incredibly simple. You can adjust the dwell, TR (essentially debounce), and other stuff. There is a game timer, bps counter, and even a thermometer. It has a few alternate firing modes, but all are capped at 13bps. It also has intellifeed capability, meaning you can connect it to your Revvy, Halo, etc. for increased ROFs. The soft face bolt allows the A4 to shoot more fragile paint.

Ball Detection - Unlike most other guns at the time, the A4 was released with "Sensi," a ball detection system that uses a pressure pad under the feedneck that would tell the gun when a ball was present. This system got a bad rep from the relative failure of the previous COPS system in the IR3. However, I have found it to be more than effective. In the time I've had the A4, I have had MAYBE 5 chops. Plus, it can't get clogged up like eyes in the event of a chop.

Cons:

Ball Detection - I don't have any problems with Sensi, myself. However, I know many people consider it a con.

Weight - Weight of guns really doesn't bother me too much. It does seem to bother just about everyone else though, nowadays. With barrel and asa, the A4 probably weighs somewhere around 3 pounds. It's not an SL8R, but I wouldn't really say it's hard to hold up long enough to play...

Overall, the A4 is a great gun. Like many of the older guns out there, it can more than keep up with all the new stuff being released now. And for the prices you can find them for now, they're a hell of a gun for the price.

Angel Paintball Sports Angel A4 Probably the least desirable (and therefore most affordable) angel at the moment. No eyes, so many shy away from it. But a solid platform once the board is replaced.
