Been wanting another since i sold my rage A1 and now i finally got one again. As close to new in box as you can get, previous owner shot less then a case through it. Has new 3 piece eye covers, full angel barrel kit (6 backs, two fronts), tool kit, 10 spare detents, spare arms for 3piece eyes, misc other spare parts.

Gun feel really nice with magna on there, I already got it synced.

I got 3500 psi and 6 pods of paint from playing pump half the day last time so video with paint will be up sometime tomorrow.

Nice.

Does anybody have any information on the A2's? Or are they a myth?

Its A1 fly, it has 3 piece eye covers stock, new internals that include magnetic valve, new milling....thats all the is known for now.

New internals will fit in the A1's and are expected to come out soon.

Welcome back to the family Bro, let me know when your ready to part w/the accent kit :praying: and honestly I like the this one over your rage considering everything you got w/it. The rage's just have a lot of eye-candy, that's all.

Agreed, rage was just eye candy since it was just milling and anno that were different. I think I actually like the stock milling better in person anyway. Plus the breach actually closes easy on this one, I think there was a defect in the rage i had, I had to close it and then hit the bolt with a allen wrench to make it fall into the ram slot, very annoying.

I plan on keeping this for the whole 08 season, I have said it before but its easier to keep when there almost brand new and has everything i need.

I would like to point out that I had an A1 before it was the cool thing to do... :p

Nice gun man I loved mine.

You Da Man, After talking w/you and Durrell I decided to pick mine up. Just wish I could have got mine for what there going for now, not that D didn't hook me up w/a great deal. Now that the used prices have come down you see all kinds of people picking them up.

Why does everyone get Angels with 45 grips?

An A1 with a vert frame would be very uncomfortable because of how small the marker is. I love vert frames on other angels I had one on my G7. Muddy, dont tell Dan that, because he will... Dan you can come inside now...

Matt telling him to come inside via computer is useless.. he is outside already.

Looks like a very nice gun Muddums. Good grouping too.

how do you like the angels? my dad is looking at one of those and i was just wondering how yall think they would do?

did you really need the 100 piece barrel kit?

That all depends if you want to listen to the Angel-Haters or those that have experience with them. Let's put it this way, considering that you can find them ranging from $400 to $600 used (and I highly recommend you don't jump on the cheapest one out there, because you'll probably end up with somebody's wore out/messed up marker) he won't be disappointed.

did you really need the 100 piece barrel kit?
It's only 8 pieces. If you want to maximize efficiency and acuracy, then yeah that smaller barrel kit is kinda needed considering that .691 (smallest back w/stock barrel kit) is oversized for most tourny grade paints out there.

I can't be the only one wondering this... when does it go for anno? ;)

It will never make that big of a difference. It's not like the entire bag is going to be within .002 inches. Just pick a medium bore close to .690 and shoot draxxus. At most you need 3 bores, small (evil on a dry day), medium (everything else), and large (that paint you left in your pod for 3 months).

.001,.003, .005 are all negligible. call it a day at .691 barrel kits aren't very useful on anything that's open bolt.

Your absolutely right, unfortunately like I said above the stock barrel kit that comes with the A1 Only has the larger sized backs, to get the small and medium sized backs the expanded kit has them and you can't purchase them individually, unless you find them used. Now you can buy non-Angel barrels to meet the above mentioned but long run cost wise it doesn't save you much and the Angel barrels are on par w/or arguably better than other barrels available. This is all mute considering it was part of the trade and as usual Taco got a killer deal.

A large bore isn't going to shoot that bad in most cases. I would have stuck with just stock.

Still... it's his gun... his choice.

I personally like to have different bore sizes.
