Howdy, all. Played back in high school (graduated 06) and at that time angels were the guns we dreamed of having, so needless to say when I say this fly on ebay a couple years ago for $125, I snatched that puppy up.
Sadly the first time I used it was last weekend to make sure it works for this weekend (bachelor party) ---any way, testing it out it seemed to shoot ok. I shot some old field paint I had left over from a while back and the first couple shots were fine, then the when I pulled the trigger again, it did this kind of hissing sound, not so much like a leak, but like the trigger was sticking. It would do this for about 1-2 seconds and then it sounds like the trigger "clicks" back to where i can shoot again. Im describing this as best as I can and I fould a paintball video labeled "Angel Fail" on youtube and it was this exact problem, the caption under the video said, "Bolt stuck forward on my Angel. After this day of play, I pressure tested the Angel and realized the LPR was sitting at 58psi, WAAAAAAAAAAY too low for a poppet gun"
So looking at the manual at the LPR maintenance section, it said it needs to be at 83 with the HP tank at 350 (I think?); however when I tried to disassemble to add/subtract discs (per manual each shim is 5psi) there was only 1 shim in there. I know whoever had the marker prior to me wasn't running it like this...at least I hope. Am I missing something? I ran out of pant, then did tried adjusting the trigger offset and dwell. I put it in demo mode to see if this fixed the problem and though I didn't have the same issue, it seemed I was experiencing trigger bounce as sometimes I would pull a couple times and 5 rounds would go off. I think I can fix the ladder issue, but what about this LPR nonsense? Anyone had this issue?
Sorry for the long description, but I really want this thing to work. Thanks in advance!
