Got it for $150 at my local paintball store.  I basically picked it up off the shelf and walked out.  Critiques please.

I wouldn't have spent 150 on it...  It will cost 2-3 times that just to make it "cometitive" with some of todays cheaper "mid-ends."  If you really want to be a BAMF, get TAG to install Predator Lasers, Board, etc.  Get a new freaking feedneck, and throw away that maxflo. It just looks stupid on an angel.  The barrel has got to go as well.

Sorry it's harsh, but I <3 angels and had to be truthful.

I got it for more of a collection thing, but I don't like the feedneck either, so I'm with you on that one, but it really doesn't need any upgrading, it already shoots about 17 to 19 bps.  It's just a fun gun and I've never owned an Angel.

That's what I thought at first as well, but I don't know if WDP released an "03 speed" or it's equivelant. It's certainly NOT an Ir3, but it coul possibly be an early year predecessor.  The bodies are hard to tell with older angels, but the frame DOES look like an older style.

That's nice looking. I think it would look better with a 90* frame

Yeah, Dale Ford's 2k1 LCD has the same frame and trigger....

If that is a 2k3 body, it probably was reannoed to match with the frame.
