So, you are suggesting an Angel just because "...they look a hell of a lot better and it is a LCD"? That would be like suggesting a moldy piece of bread over a fresh piece just because the moldy piece is more colorful and has spores.
Yes, the Excalibur is well worth the $1250.
Here is some information about the Excalibur:
How consistent is the Excalibur?
-If you go to www.akalmp.com
and check out the Excalibur page there is a video of it being shot over the chrono. It will show you that the consistency is very good, it most always has +/- 1-2 fps variations.
How efficient is the Excalibur?
-I have gotten 2000 rounds out of 3000 or so psi on an 88 ci tank. I have been told that you can get about 1500 or so shots out of a 45 ci 4500 psi tank. Any way it goes, expect to get massive shots out of it.
What pressure does the Excalibur run at?
-The LPR is set to 90 psi from AKA, but it can be lowered after the regs have been broken in. I currently have mine set at 50 psi. This low pressure lowers the chance of chopping a ball. I have gone 9 1/2 cases without a barrel break, and 10 1/2 without a chopped ball.
-The HPR is usually set at 180 or so psi to attain 285 fps. After the reg is broken in, you might be able to lower it. I have mine set at 160 psi, shooting 285-290 fps.
Is the Excalibur a quality gun?
-Unlike other gun manufacturers, AKA took the time to perfect the Excalibur as much as possible before they released it to the public. Instead of selling a great number of guns and having to update them and fix them, they released a limited number of them and made the proper modifications to the current versions before they released them to the whole public.
-There is a lifetime warranty on all AKA manufactured parts.
-There is the manufacturer's warranty on all non-AKA manufactured parts.
What kind of gas does the Excalibur run on?
-It is able to be run on Nitrogen, Compressed Air, or CO2 (it is recommended that when using CO2 an anti-siphon tube is installed and a Female Palmer's Stabilizer is used in additon to the Sidewinder).
Where can I find aftermarket barrels for the Excalibur?
-It uses standard Autococker threaded barrels, which can be found at most any shop.
When I buy an Excalibur, what all do I recieve?
-Included with the Excalibur is a Warrior Sports gun bag. The bag has 3 barrel slots on one side and a pocket on the other side. The Javelin is put into one of the slots, and the AKA Barrel Kozie and Excalibur Manual (on a 3.5" floppy disk) are put into the pocket on the opposite side.
How much does an Excalibur cost?
-You have your choice of a single or double trigger when ordering your gun, at no additonal cost. This option is not guaranteed by all shops, and you might be limited to what they have in stock.
-You have your choice of a low or high rise feed when ordering your gun, at no additonal cost. This option is not guaranteed by all shops, and you might be limited to what they have in stock.
-You have your choice of an un-milled or a milled version when ordering your gun. This option is not guaranteed by all shops, and you might be limited to what they have in stock. There is an additional charge for the milled version.
-MSRP for un-milled is $1275, milled is $1350.
What kind of battery does the Excalibur use?
-The Excalibur operates off of a standard 9-volt battery.
As you can see, it is a very good gun. There is more information that I did not include, if you would like further information just let me know.
