If you're going to go to the considerable trouble and expense to have the existing holes patched, then you might as well do it up right and have it MT modded. That will actually help cosmetically as well since the eye cover plates will cover up most of the patched area.

IMO, it'd be easier and cheaper to just wait around for a better Ironman to come along. By the time you get through filling the holes, having a proper eye job done, and getting it reanodized you're going to be probably $500 or more just into fixes on the gun. I'd probably be inclined to grab a pair of Eblade covers, remove that Shoe Goo, drill and tap holes to mount the Eblade covers, keep the current eye system, and flip it for a better offer.

That's awesome. I haven't seen a Dye Angel with a MT eyes before. I love it. If you're going to put eyes on a blind Angel, you may as well do it right the first time. Non of that JB weld garbage. I cringe every time I see a JB weld eye job.

Honestly, anyone can spend a lot on a gun in good condition and call it their own. It's more rewarding bringing a gun back from the dead. The downside is that the sentimental feeling won't increase the value drastically. I say go all in and keep it forever.

I don't think any AngelOwner in their right mind will send their markers to Ballers Inc., I think they did real damage to their anodizing side of their business by letting that marker go out in that condition!!

That all sounds good, and give Doc some time, right now he's one of the few to last machine shop that will actually mill paintball markers. hell if I have the money right now, I would you open a machine shop just for the custom milling and repair of paintball markers, because I know there will be money to be made there.
