Lol my apologies, I didn't see any from recently. I was kind of looking to get as many opinions I could and maybe start a little comparison and discussion about why maybe some of the older or newer models were better equipped so to speak

new to old
sb/ark - very desirable, high price, parts non-existent
a1 - stock had leak issues, mango etc fixed most of that. parts available
g7fly/gat/06speed - great platform, barrels hard to come by
g7 - uses old thread barrels so cheap, parts pretty easy to come by, boards hard to find (for these and any older)
a4/a4fly/5speed - parts still available. Alot of people prefer this body style. Can be found pretty cheap
3speed/4speed - probably the least popular era. No eyes
ir3/lcd - parts super cheap (buy project guns). Heavy but cheap and fun. Retro cool.
led - hard platform to maintain (wiring harness) unless you know what you are doing. Cheaper to buy a couple guns and cobble together.

just my opinion

LED-G7 use old threads
G7FLY/06speed/GAT use new thread with longer shank
A1/SB use newest thread (Compatible with GAT but shorter shank).

fixed in my post.

lol i guess thats one way to answer it, but i was more looking for something like "the ir3 has a crappy ram, but its better than the magno ram because of ....."
then somebody else disagrees, more looking for a conversation starter
lol or is that basically how the angel public feels?

I'm a fan of the LCD I like simplicity- and they are tanks.

I like the g7 fly series because they are smooth and quiet.

The Sb was WDP crown jewel. Fast gun and smooth. Light and closed bolt!! Damn.

Idk buddy. Theres a plenty saying the speed 06 "the gat" was one of the best markers. Either way. The a4 fly and up had the eyes. Lcds are always fun. Especially with the pmr mod. Makes it a super fast blind gun

The an was wdp last stand.



This was mine and it was super soft and fast. Their best effort before going down swinging.

No breech opening - just a smooth bodied triple tube piece if art.
