Yes. All the time. I still think most of these guns nowadays won’t reach the status that the Angel once was. Someone start a crowdfund to buy WDP.

I feel there is no variety in markers anymore. I mean I know the sport fell off but now they all even look the same. I would kill for a new version of the g7 fly and A1.

They would not be able to compete against the market share planet eclipse already owns.

Move on, it's not going to happen.

It doesn’t matter if P.E. has a huge market share.

They still sell AutoMags but barely anyone buys them.

I’m sure that a lot more people would be interested in Angels than some other markers that are already on the market.

The more companies that are in Paintball the better it is for the sport.

Lost of people have already said that they would love to see WDP back and making modernized Angels. At least according to this Poll Thread:

*Deep voice*
Yeah.



It’s true. People still buy mags, cockers, axe’s, pumps of every kind. Doesn’t mean that the people don’t want variation. ALL the guns these days look and feel the same. Maybe it’s time for variation

Well good luck with your wishes.

Don't hold your breath.

AGD is still in business.

The aftermarket AGD parts community is very alive and well.

No comparison at all to WDP, not even close.

its better left as a fond memory of greatness rather than a revived mediocre product dumb'ed down for the masses to reach a price point and a sales quota.

Haha good point. There was just something different about the way angels were made and felt. I know it’s personal preference but still. Hell I’d even be happy just asking for another open bolt gun.

Here's the problem with asking people in paintball basically anything:

We'd all love to see (insert whatever item) happen. Polls and discussions support that. Everyone would love to see (item) be a thing!

Someone steps up. It's going to happen. (Price) is exactly how much it's going to cost, even if the company doing it loses money making it happen. Everyone's excited. Much hype ensues.

Time to put money into it.

Nobody knows why anyone would bother. What a terrible business decision. Gee, I'd really like it if it didn't cost (exactly what we were told it'd cost).

yeah, that as well.

like when youre on a car forum and everyone is asking for a turbo kit... some one pieces together a kit, does the r&d, and formulates a price.

and then its all crickets. no one buys it since the kit is the same price you paid for the base model saturn in the 1st place. lol

**** I remember the first time I walked on the field with an A1 not long after they came out and a bunch of people were asking what it was.

I remember when anything cool or fast-looking was assumed to be an Angel. Someone back in the day thought my Rainmaker was maybe an Angel. Hard no on that one, although it was a stepping stone to my love for Angels.

Ha! A rainmaker an angel? That’s funny. Every rainmaker I’ve seen couldn’t shoot nearly as fast as an angel. I remember them having clunky triggers for an electro.

Hell of a unique sound to them, too. And you're right, nowhere near as fast an my Angels.

Still kind of want one again. The Rainmaker was cool in a funky sort of way.

If By unique sound, You mean the sound of metal slamming into hard plastic? Because thatís what they sounded like to me.
