It look (and is) very solid.
Manufacturing is great.
Easy to strip (you just get the bolt out and run a squeegie through the whole thing. Take 5 seconds). Not sure if this can damage the ball retainer though!?
Trigger is one-fingered and with quite sharp edges. Your triggerfinger can get sore.
I like it. Great for someone who is new to the game and wants a reliable gun. Used a lot as a rental gun (in Europe).
The 9 is for the trigger.
BTW It is definitely made by Arrow Precision, but the distributer for the US must be someone else.
I have the top of the range model. the Terminator and I can honestly say "it's Great!" Living in England with our notoriously bad weather I love it when I hear Angel owners complain when it starts raining. My gun kicks ass in the wet! It shoots fast, accurately and can easily hold it's own against any other marker.
If you run it on CO2 make sure you've got an anti-syphon tube plus, get a new barrel asap, not that there's anything wrong with the stock one, it's just not as good as the marker deserves.
I wasn't sure how the marker would perform when I first got it. I haven't been dissapointed with it yet. I got a diffuser bolt and a new barrel, and that's all the upgrades it has needed, but you can quite easily play with it straight out of the box and go up against people with far more expensive pieces of kit and not be out-gunned.
this is a good gun because it is very accurate and has good shot speed I shot about 10 shot on it and that is as fast as my finger can go. The stock barrel is ok but not the best. I bought the beefed up version of this gun called the Heat and i bought it for $180 which is a good price for this gun.
there is not much that is bad about this gun except the stock barrel and that this gun can only be upgraded only a couple of times so that is also bad.
this is just a good gun overall this gun has given me the best accuracy of all the guns ive ever tried(even pirranhas).
This gun is very accurate, and shoots extremely fast. The overall feel of this gun is great. This gun is accurate stock, and even more accurate with my aci zero gravity barrel. I have very few breaks even using brass eagle paintballs. I love this gun!
I have no complaints.
This gun is an excellent gun especially for the price. I will definately be retiring my spyder TL. This gun is unbelievable. I love it!!
FAST trigger (out shot my 9v rev) decent stock barrel,
small compact size, great consistancy, and reliablility
Eh, stock barrel, I don't know how it runs on co2, but it
ran great on HPA
I loved this gun, can be had online for as little as 135
and for a stock marker i loved it. May
end up getting one to backup my automag. I give it a 9
because its still an open bolt blow back and has the normal
shortcomings associated with that operation, but its a
9 out of 10

inferno t3 center feed and doubble triger and drop forward with bottom line and advanced expantion chamber with an all american 14" barrel 20oz co2 and vl200 with x board
buy the t3 it has all the mods you need but make sure it has the double trigger as the single is uncomfortable to use. and you will need a vl rev to keep the feed up or its chop city. if you have the money then but the e trigger for it it is light and responsive even a newbe could get 14 rounds a second with the e trigger.
This gun is seariousley fast for a blow back it is light well built and accurate when paired with a good barrel, it is also simple to clean on feild typicaly 30 seconds from start to shooting again without de gasing.
none relay as long as you get the t3 with double trigger, you must remember to fit the winter valve when playing in the cold as it will chop 1 in 10 balls without it (comes as part of the kit)
this is a good all round gun and can put up a good fight against the best electro guns on the market and defiantly one for the beginner and tourney player alike
