Vtwin Double Barreled Angel - Introducing Abaddon

I wanted to share my entry for the 2016 Angel Build-off we are holding over on Facebook.



Abaddon, one of the twin Angels of the Apocalypse (seemed appropriate), translates to "The Destroyer".

tl;dr
1. Machinist - Doc Nickel from Doc's Machine
2. Anodizer - Danillo Masuelli of Stained Works/NorCal Anodizing
3. Owner (lucky me) - Jeff Pace of Enoch Paintball

Ok heres the meat.

This beauty began life as two badly mismatched junk yard 2k1 WDP Angel Lcds in need of rescuing. They were living in a pile on my workbench, always destined for more. Enter the 2016 Angel Build-off and a crazy idea.

Doc Nickel is basically the only machinist in the paintball world crazy enough to even attempt this, let alone make it successfully on the first try. So i wrote him my crazy idea. The triple tube design on the angel just seemed to lend itself to marrying together, especially since one tube is essentially empty holding nothing but a battery. The original idea was to do two vertical, but this was the conceptual diagram that came back



And I was sold. Worked in both warp and hopper configs, and fit better. So off the parts went to Alaska.

Final machine work:
1. Remove Battery Tube off one angel
2. Mill second angel to fit
3. Custom rail to do air transfer
4. Custom VAA
5. Custom trigger frame work
6. Add Eyes to each side with custom eye covers
7. Doc's custom detents
8. Flip on breech to make butterfly breeches
9. Custom backplate

Obviously that is a gross understatement of the massive amount of work that went into this, so pictures show it best.

At the machine Shop









Arrived









Back From Ano. Danillo recommended a busy blue/black acid wash with white spider to cover up the seams and he was right, the ano really works perfect with it and makes it pop.







And fully assembled in warp config






And in dual hopper config

For the nerds:

2. Stock rams, solenoids, valves, and lprs in each side
3. Independent dual eye system
4. Custom Arduino Enoch Paintball board, with OLED, Bluetooth, dual noid connectors, dual warp connectors, and dual eye connectors

5. 7.4V li-ion stick battery in one empty tube
6. 11.1V lipos in each warp feed with on/off switch added
7. Dual 3mm DM style eyes with custom eye covers
8. Matched Angel Air
9. Custom Machined hand fitted breech
10. Dual Butterfly breeches (one side flipped from stock)
11. Sequential firing with independent eye readings (each side fires in succession, if one side gets blocked the other will keep firing on every other pull).
12. Fully Loaded with dual warps she is over 18pounds
13. Dual Doc's custom freak backs

If you have any other questions, please feel to post and I try to add to the specs page

Still to do:

At full speed it sees alot of shootdown. I need to up the input pressure and fiddle with to LPRs to get it up and firing at higher BPS

One of the coolest fabrications I've seen. Have you thought of instead of having both bolts stay in the back position, having the one that just fired stay closed to act as a counterbalancer? Thus smoothing out the action. That way they would just switch, like a horizontally opposed 2 cylinder engine.

Thats an interesting thought. Its already a little unbalanced due to the rams being in the center and left tubes instead of left and right.

Keeping a bolt forward would cause a valve the stay open, so I dont think thats going to work

This is damn cool. Bummer about the shootdown. I bet you can get it dialed in though to get a decent BPS without though.

Could you try to open up one of the valves by putting an A4 or G7 lpr in the one good battery tube?

That may help, just a thinking out loud.
