Yeah, I’m not exactly sure but I think you might need the patents in order to release a marker under the Angel name.

Or possibly the patents have already expired?

I believe that they are close to expiring if they haven’t already, but like I said I am not 100% sure...

International Patent agreements last 20 years from the filing date.

Of course you could just use Taiwan and get anything you want made if you win the lottery lol...

there are a bunch of REALLY nice angels on ebay at the moment and no one seems to be jumping on them. I saw 2 A1 SB's (my personal dream marker), a COBRA, hand full of Joys (non-Fly), and a ton of A1's, and a few FLY's

how much more modern do you want? they are old, yeah, but they were so far ahead of their time back then, they can still compete...

Clamping feed neck, tool-less delrin bolt removal, on/off ASA, ball bearing trigger, hall effect micro switch, 2 piece carbon barrel, air efficient, reliable (if you take care of it and dont f-with it), easy maintenance, takes a standard 9v battery, "one and done" lpr design, and enough settings on the FLY board to keep you busy all day.

They are nice but seem fairly overpriced for untested markers....

You are right, they were ahead of their time.

I’d just shrink the height down and maybe stretch them out a little bit. Add some good laser Eyes that could be under the Roto Breech and hidden from outside. Also wireless connections would be great and possibly transducers for easy tuning if we are going to keep the LPR...

Easier said than done but I would love to take a crack at bringing the name back! Angel was my first ‘fast’ gun. Currently have 2 and they shoot very nice!

First find out who currently owns Angel Paintball Sports and what their price is.

GI Sportz owns of the infamous Smart Parts electronic patents, so how much are you willing to spend on that lawsuit ?

After that tons of money making entry and mid level markers so you can afford to build the high ends.

Start right now and maybe by 2025 you will have something to sell...

What are you talking about?!

WDP and Smart Parts were given equal rights to the use of the Patent. The judge even said in court that no one from Smart Parts was smart enough to have designed a paintball marker lol...

Unless GI buys up WDP patents too then you should have nothing to worry about.

Also, most companies start with making High-end Markers because the profit margins are far greater than mid-range or low ends.

Just because you don’t like Angels doesn’t mean you have to keep trying to rain on our parade...

I own several Angels.

FYI the cake is a lie, and there is no parade.
