What is the best angel.

Ok guys I'm looking at purchasing an angel. I'm a big joy division fan so if I could find one of those that would be a plus. But having never owned an angel, just cockers/Timmy's, what is the best year/model what parts should I avoid what shoots the best. What do I need to look for when purchasing one.
Any ideas would help.

Best is a term no one will ever agree on. Many will tell you the last great angel gen was the A4. I personally love the new Flies and SB's. Same angel feel with efficiency about to over a case. Can't go wrong. Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder....

Truth: I love how the a4 platform shoots. But man does the g7 series just feel like soft buttery tits. Sbs.......virgin beef curtains.

Unless you're looking for something vintage or nostalgic or you want to get into collecting, I'd recommend going for something A4 Fly or newer. The A4 Fly generation marks the beginning of the "modern" era of Angels - low pressure operation, eyes, dual detents, soft face bolt, etc. Past that, each gun has a different feel and unique advantages, so it's really a matter of personal taste.

I'd agree that the A4 generation is actually amazing.

Very reliable (built like tanks), fast, not too heavy, and pretty efficient.

If I wasn't loving the A1 platform so much, I'd still be shooting A4 flys.

The 05 speed fits in the category as well, and are probably a little easier to find. the 05 speed used 9 volt batteries, which is a plus as well.

I found a 2k LCD I like has a virtue pmr board or something in it and uses a 9v instead of a charger. Would that be something only like 80$ and has the bad *** old school wings on the top behind bolt hatch

Grab it. I've done 12 of those conversions- great combo.

One of my favorite guns is my G7 fly with The Force board. The speeds however are easier to come by so for some one looking to pick up a cheap fun Angel? That said the thread starter should have long ago jumped on the G7 Joy with the virtue board its perfect.

I have owned every plateform, and Best is never an Easy thing..

I loved them all, but if i had to put an order...

G7/G7 fly is on top, only cause it was the last group that had alot of PL milling

then its a tie between the A1 and LCD plateforms

A4 and IR3 were last... the IR3 had some great millings also...
