The Angel 4 is the most accurate paintball marker of all time…
Power without control is worthless. The Angel 4 is the straightest shooting gun on earth. Its low pressure operation and soft-touch bolt offer minimal kick and a super-flat trajectory. Combine this with the superior firing platform of the patented Space frame and adhesive Skin grip and you get incredible accuracy, combined with incredible rates of fire. You will make shots you never made before. The 4 will change your perception of what is possible, what you are capable of.
The Angel 4 is the fastest paintball marker ever…
The Angel 4 will cycle (that’s feed and fire) 31 balls per second. There is no other paintball marker on earth that can match this. The incredible firepower is delivered with style, refinement and all the features you need. There has never been a more user friendly Paintball Marker. Set your trigger up to your own exacting standards with the twin Vernier wheels, which offer an incredible range of trigger positions to suit any user. 12 modes of fire are available with the Angel 4, including Full-Auto, Semi, Ramp, burst and user programmable options.
The new Angel 4 is the smallest, lightest Angel ever…
The Angel 4 is a full half inch shorter and lower, and 20% lighter than its predecessors. The addition of a twist-lock gated feed and low profile operating pressure gauge have added additional comforts and information to the user. The sleek body-shaping is made possible through WDP’s range of state of the art laser guided CNC machines, which are constantly updated to deliver the latest cutting edge styling.
The Angel 4 is the smartest paintball marker ever…
The Angel 4 has all the muscle, but it also has the brains to back this up. The 4’s insane feed rate is made possible through the Sensi LDS (Load Detection System), which monitors the load capacity of your loader and adjusts the maximum rate of fire to match it, ensuring the maximum bps (balls per second) possible. It is also equipped with an ez- read LCD split-menu interface with access to game timer, vibes alarms, Infra-red options, and a host of other features.
The Angel 4 is the lowest pressure Angel ever.…
The Angel 4 will operate at pressures lower than 200psi. Out of the box your Angel will operate at around 350psi. A 3Sum Volumiser pack is included with the marker, comprising of 3 different volume chambers. The largest of these chambers will drop your operating pressure down to around 175psi (operating pressures may vary depending on barrel and gas source). This incredibly low pressure, together with the 4’s new ‘Soft-touch’ bolt, make this new Angel the most paint friendly marker on earth.
The WDP Angel 4 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
dust blue, large volumizer, dye ultralight, crossfire LP, ev 2 eggy, and magnetic trigger
magnetic trigger, new barrel DYE
Easy to fire-
This is by far the best angel to date. Yes even better then the fly because it's so ugly and all u get is an upgraded barrel and anti-chop eye. Okay here is the whole story. Kick ass gun easy to rip on when u get a magnetic trigger. Alot more accurate then the timmy or cocker.
Stock Angel 4, Halo B loader, Crossfire 88ci 45k Low pressure tank
maybe a new barrel, IE Dye Ultralite other than that not much yet..
weight. milling, and back end cut another half inch. Very easy to operate.
this marker so far has no weaknesses from itself.
after playing one day with this marker i had many chops. In the manual it says shoot 10 balls to calibrate. It doesnt not state to turn the sensi on to calibrate so myself and others I know of thought it was calibrated when you turned it on, and shot 10 rds.
Not untill some fourm threads I read that you need to turn on sensi so the led blinks red then you can calibrate. This past sunday I calibrated it correctly and shot 1k rds in speedball all day and DIDNT have 1 ball break.
WDP has come a long way making this marker, which is basically upgrading and tweaking, moddifying a good marker to be GREAT!
If you have 1k$ to spend on a marker, you will like this marker. It shoots great and reliable, that is almost the only reason you need because that is just about all you do in paintball. the rest is you the player. I would give it a 9.5 if i could. reason being it is not a perfect maker but is pretty close. it has all the features I want. does what I want.
Graphite Angle 4
CP One Piece Barrel
CP Micro Drop
Air America 68/4500 Armageddon
Smoke Halo B
Slayer Trigger and Good Barrel
The combination of speed, accuracy, distance of shots, and weight combined into this marker.
Read the manual before you play with the gun.
Weaknesses - Sensi. The sensi is made so cheap, they break quite easily. If you are planning to use a Halo B hopper with this gun, it will break the sensi and you will spend about $25 for a new sensi. There is a fix for this, but it is a little time consuming. Remove the sensi rod, then use extra fine sandpaper to sand down the tip of the rod and around the tip sides to make sure there isn't a mushroom head on the rod. Do a little at a time. Install the rod and the grip and test the sensi. You will need to take the rod down till you barely see the rod tip in the chamber. If you sand down too much, the Angle 4 comes with an extra sensi rod in the box.
Advantages - The speed of this gun is spectacular. You can easily reach speeds of 17bps without walking the trigger. This gun has the best accuracy I have ever seen in any Angel. I was able to shoot just as far as any autococker on the field. Without any problems. The gun is light weight. The trigger is a little difficult to adjust, but when you get it perfectly comfortable it is great.
Read the manual more than once before you play with this gun.This is a great gun, a little expensive, but well worth the cash that you spend. You'll get everything that you want out of this gun. I will give this gun a 10 because the advantages totally surpass the weaknesses.

VERY NICE GUN i just got mine for xmas and picked up a freak for it. i played with it using factory setting and sensi on. at first i didnt like the rof. then i realized it was adjustable (yes im an angel noob) i took it back to the field the next week and played a game with the rof adusted and came out saying --27 bps---give me more--- i was very suprized. i could barly get 11 of the eblade cocker. the only problem i had was that the sensi was broken but i dont know if i broke it or if it came broken. i started to chop the second week i used it. but over all its a nice gun. I know ive seen noobs with nice guns but please please stay away from this gun. it beeds a very high level of maintinace. its too much for me i have too much to do so im going to send it into the angel guy every once and awhile to get it cleaned and greased.
buy it if youve proven yourself worthy. prove yourself worthy buy taking you current gun cleaning it out greasing it up tightening all the loose screws and nuts then play games with it. do that on a daily basses and you know how hard it is to keep up with this gat.
Fast, no kick, weight, look, balance, accurate, everything
Price but u get what u pay for
This, to me, is one of the best guns ever! when i bought it from my friend i was so happy to get an angle, and i went home to go play around with it and shoot some paintballs. i was shocked. i knew that all angles are great but wow! i never thought i could walk the trigger that fast, plus at the same time have no kick. at my first pratice i did the best i ever did, too bad it's wasn't a tourny. you could really do anything with this gun, play back, mid , or front it doesn't matter. that's why i think it's a great balance gun. but the thing i love best about this gun is that i bought it used and it still shoots like it's new!
If you can buy this gun without burning a hole in your pocket buy it! ONE OF THE BEAT F@!KING GUNS EVER!
Angel Speed "like the 4 except allot heavier and honestly not as fast or accurate/ Dm4 " Angel 4 holds its own easily against these/ 03 shocker "Angel 4 not as small but 20x's more efficient and faster too.
Pink Polished Angel 4 w/slayer trigger and longest volumizer
Custom Products black rail and on-off
Crossfire 70/4500psi low pressure tank
Pink Halo B "Heres the secret, buy clear shells and boil them in pink food coloring"
slayer trigger and thats it! "Oh, and a high paintball IQ, the trick to angels is having the regulators set perfect"
dead on accurate
Absolutely nothing, buy one or be dominated its that simple.
I'll make it short and sweet.
The angel 4 shoots a true 31 balls per second with dead-on accuracy/ no noise/ and no kick period.
This beast operates a 175psi and I receive 1350 shots out of a 70/4500psi tank shooting 285, 283, 285, 284fps!
Perfect gun for tape runner, "only 2.3lbs" through back man.......perfect for any position.
Super flat trajectory and no kick.
The sensi does a superb job of making sure I don't chop even after 8763 shots.
The value of this gun surpasses all others and it dominates the field.
(set the regs up perfect 177psi on high pressure reg/ and 65psi on low pressure reg/ your tank input should be 400psi.) This is what mine shoots at and im the pimp so do this and you 4 will never fail.
-Barrel kit, stock barrel is pretty nice though
-If the new JAM anti-chop bolt is all that its hyped to be, pick one up
-Magno Tigger mod -- search PBN if you don't know what this is
-Get a CP Rail, not a uni mount. Rails are much easier to deal with
-Stock trigger, I hate it. Pick up a new Master Tech trigger ASAP
This is truly the best marker on the market. It can get nearly 2000 shots out of a 68/45 with Ken Crane's settings as posted on Angel-owners.com, it is incredibly consistent with the minireg, more consistent with an average for most players of +/- 4 fps than the DM4 Hyper II reg, (Check out matrix forums at PBN if you don't believe me) and rips to all hell.
Trigger adjustments are super easy with the new wheels, runs at 55 psi with Ken Crane's settings, zero kick, and is ridiculously fast even with my slow fingers. It is very low maintence, uses a comfy space frame, and also has a great useer friendly LCD screen. A child could use this LCD menu, it was my first and I didn't even need to manual to figure it out.
About the charger -- The car charger is the ONLY universal outlet. REMEMBER, this marker is made in Britain that uses different wall sockets and WDP didn't just want to screw the customer and give Americans the British plug or vice versa.
The minireg readout is very easy to see and is placed where it is, so it won't ever takea direct hit from a paintball. I don't know what people are complaining about. Its smart engineering and you will never have to replace it.
Accuracy -- ACCURACY IS 90% PAINT TO BARREL MATCH AS QUOTED FROM TOM KAYE! Think about it. How can one gun move its bolt forward any more accuratly than another? Now that thats clear, kick and consistency DO come from the gun making up the other 10%. There is no kick due to the extremely low operating pressure and the consistency is the best there is anywhere. A perfect paint/barrel match will make this thing shoot ball on ball easy. It's absolutely dead accurate with a good p/b match even at super high rates of fire that this thing achieves.
The best marker on the market right now. Beats the hell out of the Alias and DM4.
This marker is amazing. It is a tournament players dream. it is soo accurate and fast its like shooting full auto the whole game. So light . Amazing. awesome looking.(chick magnet) GET ONE. Never have Any problems with my baby. Never leaks . Manual is good, very helpfull. Shoots streams of paint into other players bunkers. This thing dominates.
I highly reccomend ths marker to anybody with a good amount of experience. If u hate whn u have problems that are hard to fix. GET THIS GUN 10
10 out of 10

Dragon Timmy- This gun is awesome but,....... There were some minor annoyances.
Spyde.... Na not even close except they both shoot paint
Angel A4 Black to Blue Dust Fade
Angel AIR 68/45 (I don't care what you say, it is good but I have never tried a maxflow. This is my first high end air system)
Egg II Z-board
DYE 12" Ti Boomstick
DYE Ti Boomstick
Angel Air (The pressure of this air system is really good for angels.
Egg II or Envy but with the Envy it only holds 140 but feeds at 27bps (So View Loader claims.)
-FIREPOWER (Up to 31bps but I can't reach that high.)
-Looks of the milling
-Maybe the trigger .
The Angel A4 is one of the best angels so far. It is so much better than the IR3 and LCD because you can rip with this trigger. When the package first arrived, I tore it open. I saw the manual first with all its color pictures I sat down and read the manual because it is my first angel. Then I was off to shoot it.
-Shooting the Angel
I first gassed it up then started to calibrate the sensi like the manual says. Nowhere in the manual says there is a 13bps cap but on certain forums I read there is a 13bps cap. I had the medium volumizer and set the pressure to 225 psi. I fired with one finger at first but then I started walking the trigger. There was no kick as I shot the A4. I was reaching insane rates of fire!! I was using an Envy and I reached insane rates of fire. Then after firing the LCD says things like "I want your hopper"The A4 IMO is the same in performance with the dragon timmy but was a little easier to maintain. During this time of shooting I didn't chop one ball even though I probably went through 600 balls. One of the great things about this angel is that by the time someone says "hit" you will have hit them about twenty times!! Also the trigger on mine was bad at first, because I would pull the trigger and there would be like a second delay. Then I made the trigger longer and the problem just went away.
IMO the Angel A4 is one of the greatest guns you can get today. It is about the same as a dragon timmy though IMO.
eggy II w / yboard
like any other marker I would recomend a barrel system
soft face bolt
I am trying to hard to think........nope, I dont know of any
I got my angel about 3 months ago and I have put it through some pretty rugged paces.
the a4 passed the mud test. where my ecocker would have definatly gone down. not as quite as a trix but lighter. I have shot more then 5 cases of paint and I have had to use a battle swab 3 times. I am using the middle volumizer and I am getting over 1500 shots per fill. not really sure exactlly how many due to the fact that I refill when I get down to 1k. I am getting pretty good rates of fire. somewhere between 15 and 22 bps with paint. accuracy seems to be dead on. over all a great marker.
if you need to shoot alot of pait. and you have a grand to spend then dont pass up the
