Review: I bought my Angel from my local store around three months ago. To make this review easier to read, I will categorize the strengths and weaknesses.

STRENGHS

Speed- This gun is insanely fast. I customized my settings according to Ken Crane's reccommeded A4 settings on angel-owners.com. This gun throws ropes of paint. The slayer trigger is really nice and it is easy for me to keep up good rates of fire.

Looks- My A4 is drop dead gorgeous. The milling is smooth, and the fade is great. You can tell WDP put alot of effort into the creation of this gun.

Accuracy- While not as "accurate" as my old cocker, a good paint to bore fit on my Angel still is pretty accurate. I would say it is better than a Timmy.

Vernier Wheels- The vernier wheel trigger adjusters make it a very simple process to adjust the travel of your trigger. Just have the right allen wrench, loosen the screw, then use the wheels to adjust the travel distance. Tighten when done.

Volumizer Kit- WDP includes a volumizer kit with the newer Angels. They can reduce the operating pressure down to 175psi. Three volumizers are included. The smallest reduces the operating pressure the least, the largest the most.

Reliability- I have had no problems with my A4 except caused by myself. (When I first bought it, I used a HPA instead of a LPA tank. Off seated a few o-rings.) Just make sure that if you chop paint, stop shooting and squeegee it out or else the valve will stay open and you will lose all of your air.

Customizable- VERY CUSTOMIZABLE. You can set anything from the dwell to a custom text that appears when you switch it to live. (Factory is ANGEL LIVE.)

The Manual- By far the best manual I have ever seen. Extremely detailed and has lots of pictures and diagrams. Actually made for an A4. (Alot of Timmy manuals are dated from 2002.)

Sensi- Pretty good anti-chop system, I have not had many breaks at all, maybe two out of two thousand. I would get Angel Eyes later.

Maintenance- Barely anything. Use some love juice on the square o-ring on the bolt hatch and on any moving parts visible moving parts other than the bolt when you open the hatch.

WEAKNESSES

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!
Conclusion: This is the best paintball gun I have ever used. I would never sell this gun for any other. Its around $300 cheaper than the fly, and they are very close to being the same gun with milling and board/eye differences. GO BUY ONE TODAY!!!
