If you click on the Ultimate Sticky and scroll down, the 3rd or 4th post is a brief description of the differences from generation to generation of Angel. The reason you probably aren't finding much by way of comparison between those 4 guns is because they are all mechanically identical. The main differences are:

The G7 uses old Angel barrel threads, where the G7 Fly introduced an updated barrel thread that is shorter and finer. The G7 Fly also dropped one of the vernier adjustment wheels, using a set screw for the forward travel and forward magnetic tension adjustment. Other than that, the differences are cosmetic - the Fly features a different milling pattern and anodizing colors.

The 06 Speed is a G7 Fly that features a stripped down LED board that uses a standard 9 volt batter instead of the LCD board and internal rechargeable battery of the G7 Fly. Also features a different milling pattern.

The Gat is an 06 Speed that was customized by CheckIt products and the Master Techs to include a color-matching CheckIt feedneck and ASA, Dye Ultralight barrel, and special milling/anodizing.

Internally, all 4 models are exactly identical.

i really appreciate it. so all would operate at the same pressures and shoot the same? it basically comes down to whichone i think looks the best?

The Flys and I believe the 06 Speeds included the MT valve by default, which gives improved efficiency over the stock valve, but that aside, yes. Same working pressures, they will all shoot more or less the same.

ok interesting. i personally like the look of the g7 fly, but the gat is lighter. the gat and 06 speed came out after g7/fly? just read how parts are hard to come by.

Correct - the 06 Speed came out after the G7 Fly. Parts are indeed getting a little harder to come by as time goes on.

All Gats had the MT Valve. At least the 14 I have owned over the years all did
