Methodcaptains Angels and 'Cockers.

I'll start off with my current collection of Angels. If I can find some pictures of the angels I have owned in the past, I will include those as well.

I have owned over 100 different angels, and only god knows how many other markers I have owned through my 15 years of playing.

We will start of with one of my newest:

Westwood A1 fly
Anodizing was done by Bazookaboy here on PBN. His work exceeded my expectations. Marker was disassembled and re-assmbled by me. This angel gets the most compliments and turns the most heads when I play with it. People are amazed by the work that Bazookaboy did, as they should be.

I have 6 barrel backs, two fronts, two triggers, and loads of other parts matched to this. I get extra breech knobs and regulator endcaps just in case they get too scratched up from play. Yes, I use everything that I own.

Angel A1 SLY fly
Newst to my collection: One of only 30 available to the US. The only TRUE Private label Angel A1 fly made.

One of these days I'll have t hunt down one of the sly carbon fiber triggers if I can. That is the only thing missing. Well, that and I need to find a 16inch diesel tip for it.

No, I won't sell the SLY grips (I think I've had about 15 messages asking me lol).

Joy Division Angel A1 fly

How can you not like a Joy Division Angel? Out of all the angels I have had over the years, I always enjoyed the Joy series. Black and gold always looks great. I wish they would have done the fades/tatoos like the A4fly/G7 series. That would have been amazing.

Blue/Silver Angel A1 fly

Mostly stock. This is my favorite color scheme that Angel offered on a stock fly. The blue is electric.

Custom "Eclipse" Style Splash A1 fly. Everything possible matched!

Pictures do not do this justice. It's sooooo polished that it is hard to get good shots of it.

This was originally one of the unlasered cobras that Angel was selling before the SB hit the market. I picked it up with the idea of this anno scheme from day one. This was anodized by Preston of 125 customs, and he did exactly what I wanted. It took alot longer that I wanted, but I am happy with the end product.

I have all 6 barrel backs, two tips (14in and 16in), cobra trigger, and other small parts such as breech knobs matched as well.

TBD - Project "x"

Not sure how I am going to re-anodize this project. I'm thinking dust orange!

This was assmembled from parts. I had an angel 1 body that I decided to put all fly parts on to it. I think this would look good all dust since most of my other angels are all gloss. I know that stock A1's aren't the best looking as far as milling, but I think it looks cool with the fly parts.

Polished light blue/black CCM T-2: Perhaps one of the funnest markers to shoot. I'd like to thank my Friend Jacky for letting me shoot his. I was hooked instantly.

Not your average Superbolt. Most people turned these into pumps. I decided to keep mine mechanical. This performs just like any other finely tuned autococker. I shoot this one alot.

Custom one-of-a-kind mechanical Karnivor Autococker. Anodizing was again done by Bazookaboy here on PBnation. Everything is matched that I could get anodized. This is a favorite!

Here are a few reasons why this one is unique.
-The body is all polished, there are no more lines in the milling on the top or the bottom.
-Custom low profile clamping feedneck.
-Custom high flow/Low pressure porting through the valve, body and bolt
-Custom tuned springs (The stock karni springs didn't give me the smooth mechanical trigger feel I wanted)
-Custom shortened shocktech beavertail (about half an inch shorter than stock
-All pneumatics match anodized
-Angel A1 fly regulator with d-lite internals used.
-Shocktech SFL 2009 frame, because I thought it matched the marker nicely. The trigger took some work, but it is extremely smooth.

Custom Blue Ripper '99 Autococker.

This thing is amazing. I'm lucky to have this one in my hands!

I think I do need to turn this into a convertible at some point. It also needs a clamping feed neck. I absoloutely love the color of blue on this. It is blue, but it shows off the milling nicely. That is why it is hard for me to get it milled right now.

Thanks to Vegard for this one as well. It took awhile to get this from across the pond, but it was worth it!

Custom "bonzai" Green splash Eclipse Mechanical Autococker. This one is a rarity. I even have a matching slider frame for it. Some parts were matched by Bazookaboy. If you can't tell, I'm not telling lol.

The Classic - KAPP pre-production '98 Autococker in gloss black. One of only 3 made without the "K" logo laser engraved from the factory. I actually sold this gun in 2002, and found it again last year in 2011. Lucky to have it back!

Reserved for my Late Father's Angel LED

This was his favorite angel. He had angels all the way up to the A4 fly series, but this was "old reliable".

Basically a stock LED. Stainless steel AKA hammer, DEZign bolt, Some Dye volumizers, and a Kapp lowrise. Internals are all otherwise original and stock.

I also attached pictues of the 99 SE LED I just picked up. This one is in great shape, so It should be a fun project. It works great, and I even made a soft face LED bolt for it.

Reserved for my Father's Custom one-of-a-kind VM-68!

My father LOVED VM-68's. I think it was because the first one he owned was one of the VM-68 magnums with a car stock that looked like and AR-15. It was heavy, loud but it shot amazingly accurate.

He went through a bunch of VM's through the years, but this was his constant project. If there was something new for the VM, this had it at one time. I still have his parts trays of Sheridan, Paintball Dave's, Proteam and many many other manufacturers. He probably put more money into this than I'd care to think about lol.

Nethertheless, here it is. The only things stock are the body, and trigger. pro-team 45 frame, sigh rail, screw kit. It has a rare Pro-comp v-3 internal kit which is all delrin. much lighter than stock, and runs at about 350psi. Thats really low for a blowback, but it works just fine. I have a copy of the invoice from Airgun Dynamics that shows this as the first order for the kit on the market (invoice 0001)

He had Palmer's make a special high flow valve,m which uses a check-it autococker cup seal. The front ASA has been capped off, and it uses a DYE minicocker ASA for a VRA. The Angel Mini reg is from an A4 series angel, and works great.

The BoA Barrel has been Eliptically honed by palmers, as well as having custom sears and springs in the trigger group.

The body can be either right feed or centerfeed. He had a stock feedmount milled down, and a matrix clamping feedneck mounted. It was actually a pretty clever idea on his part, and required only two new holes for the block to be mounted for vertical feed.

I know its not much to look at, but it is truely one a kind marker.
