Exclamation Dillema over buying an angel NEED HELP!

Ok here is my dillema, i am purchasing an angel very soon but the guy who i was supposed to be buying the gun from is taking forever and i dont know if i want to wait. The gun comes with an ss4500, intellifeed hopper, ti boomy, couple of extra parts and stuff.

I have a few questions I would like help with.

1. Should I buy the used gun or should I spend more money and get a new angel?

2. I can either buy an angel for quite cheap from one shop, but another shop sells the gun for like 300 more but I get a lifetime warranty on labor and he is wdp certified. Which should I do? Is a lifetime warranty on labor worth an extra 300 bucks?

3. If i buy a new gun I will be buying a new tank with it and i am considering a mega reg. What are your experiences with it? My other choice would be an angel air which I know preforms amazingly, but im not sure if I want to spend the extra cash.

4. I have the same question as number 2 for the angel air, I can get it cheap at one store, but the other store is wdp certified. Is a lifetime warranty on labor worth the extra cash?

Sorry for all the questions but I would like some help.

Thanks for any help you can give.

1. I find I am happier with a new gun, i just more comfterable.
2. If you buy it new anywhere from one store or the other... isnt it still under wdp warrenty? For $300... seems a little steep for warrenty and labor.. but you definatly want it.
3. Never used a megareg.. but my previous ND tank was nice )sorry, hehe)
4. Same as #2

Goodluck man... i know these are had decisions

well thanks for the offer akaflawless but if i go used im gettin my friends gun

and as far as the tank i did look at the geddon and conquest and while they are nice tanks ive had good experiences with nitroduck tanks so far so i decided on either the mega reg or the air.

Part of the reason im considering the mega reg is the built in on off and the fact that i can easily switch bottles as i am gettin a 68 cu in but latter down on the road may get a 90/88 cu in tank due to the fact that i play middle to back and shoot alot of paint

The Mega Regs are really nice tanks but they are a pain to find a good dropforward for them and the tanks are very pricey. If you want a tank that screws off go for a Geddon. They are much cheaper and still a great system.

Go with a conquest tank man. You can change the bottles on them as well... They are sweet tanks.

I'm not sure about this, but if you buy an angel aren't wdp certified techs required by wdp to service them? Maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, I bought both of mine used. The led I was less than satisfied with because it never performed as well as it should. I can't say about the lcd because I sent it to adrenalin almost immediately to be reanoed. Buying used can be good thing, but it is a risk. ND tanks are very good, but I hate the not being able to use rail mount df's with them. With tanks it's all about price vs performance. The angel airs are very nice, but I wouldn't pay 550 for one. There are just too many other good systems for a lot less out there. Just pick the one that meets your needs and budget. I personally prefer air americas. Serious though, check into what wdp's service policy regarding us techs and shops. I hope this helps.
