WDP :: Angel 1 Series Officially Released

by on Jun.29, 2006, under Articles, Markers, News, Press Releases

Angel One – the most advanced paintball marker in the world.

The Angel 1’s main pneumatic advancements have been made possible by the deletion of the rechargeable battery, allowing the Angel development team to completely re-zone the Angels classic 3-bore design in to a unique hybrid chamber operating system.

The front third of the 2 lower bores have been merged in to 1 chamber, to increase the volume of gas held in the exhaust valve chamber by 65%, which significantly lowers the pressure of gas used to propel the paintball, whilst substantially improving shot to shot consistency and accuracy.

The LPR has been fully re-designed and relocated from the front to the back of the main body. The LPR chamber is 80% larger and now sits directly beneath the Angel 1’s all new custom made 3volt solenoid, to allow direct air injection of the low pressure gas into the solenoid itself.

The custom solenoid then feeds this low pressure gas directly into the Angel 1’s super smooth ram, deleting the use of gas galleries and avoiding the use of small bore hoses, that restrict the flow of gas between the LPR, Solenoid and Ram.

These 3 core advancements in layout and design deliver, sub 200 psi shot pressure, faster recharge rates and an ultra consistent cycle pressure of 55psi.

The Angel 1’s electronic control system has been re-designed to maximize its performance advantages, whilst offering the most user friendly navigation system available on any paintball marker to date. The new Angel board is packed with more features and adjustability than any aftermarket offerings, whilst it’s intuitive blackberry style navigation system and multi coloured, crystal clear OLED display, make it incredibly easy to operate. In addition to semi auto, full auto and all major tournament modes , the Angel 1 comes with a host of user programmable ramp and breakout modes as well as a self diagnostic system that ensures you are always kept informed. The board also features a USB port, for easy at home software upgrades to conveniently keep your Angel 1 current with any software changes or updates.

These major pneumatic and electronic changes combined with Angels legendary build quality and an array of parts included as standard such as clamping feed neck, centrally ported easy bleed ASA, 3 bore size 2 piece barrel kit, 3 finger 45 frame with integrated mounting rail and comprehensive tool kit, sets the new benchmark for today’s high end tournament ready paintball markers.

Electronics

The Angel 1 comes with a host of user programmable ramp and breakout modes as well as a self diagnostic system that ensures you are always kept informed. The board also features a USB port, for easy ‘at home’ software upgrades that allows you to conveniently keep your Angel 1 current with any software changes or updates.

Electronics interface

The Angel 1’s electronic control system has been designed to maximize its performance advantages, whilst offering the most user friendly navigation system available on any paintball marker to date. The new Angel board is packed with more features and adjustability than any aftermarket offerings, whilst it’s intuitive blackberry style navigation system and multi coloured, crystal clear OLED display, make it incredibly easy to operate.

Advanced Eye logic

The Angel 1 incorporates advanced eye logic that is not only able to distinguish between a paintball and a blockage, but also has the ability to detect if the blockage or malfunction has been cleared and reactivate the eyes if necessary.

Modular Eye Construction

The Lazer-eye ribbons have been separated out into two modular components. The emitter side of the break beam system is surface mounted on a custom ribbon track, while the receiver is surface mounted on another separate custom ribbon track. Should one of these components fail it can be replaced individually, reducing maintenance costs.

Pneumatics/Internals

Internally the Angel 1 has undergone a total overhaul.

The new ‘Direct-fed’ LPR, Solenoid and Ram assembly will redefine player’s expectations of high performance markers. This re-designed pneumatic engine has allowed the Angel 1 to benefit from significantly bigger – high and low pressure chambers which result in even better consistency and accuracy.

The Low pressure chamber is 80% bigger than in the G7.

The High pressure chamber is 65% bigger than in the G7.

The LPR itself, has increased porting and greatly improved flow, feeding the redesigned low-pressure chamber which now sits DIRECTLY beneath the 6th generation, custom solenoid – giving even faster recharge rates. This means that the forces working on the super smooth and almost friction-free ram are reduced even more, further improving the Angels legendary gas efficiency.

Custom Built Solenoid

The Angel 1 incorporates the 6th generation of custom built Angel solenoids. Since 2001 WDP have been working with the world’s leading Solenoid manufacturers to ensure that the Angel 1 combines cutting edge performance with unsurpassed reliability. The solenoid used in the Angel 1 is by far the smallest and fastest cycling solenoid used to date and incorporates additional exhaust porting to allow gas to escape quickly, ensuring the fastest possible cycling speeds.

Low Pressure Regulator (LPR)

The LPR has been fully re-designed and relocated from the front to the back of the main body. The LPR chamber is 80% larger and now sits directly beneath the Angel 1’s all new custom made 3volt solenoid, to allow direct air injection of the low pressure gas into the solenoid itself.

Internal Volume Chamber

The Angel 1 internals have been completely re designed. The front third of the 2 lower bores have been merged in to 1 chamber, to increase the volume of gas held in the exhaust valve chamber by 65%, which significantly lowers the pressure of gas used to propel the paintball, this increase facilitates unsurpassed consistency from shot to shot as the % of gas drawn from the shot chamber on each activation is reduced. The Angel 1 literally stores 3-4 shots of pre-regulated air within the shot chamber meaning fluctuations in tank output pressure are not transmitted into the marker. This much improved consistency results in even better accuracy during high rates of fire.

In-line regulator

The Angel series 1 utilizes a high flow, in-line regulator that is housed within an ergonomically sculpted 3D fore grip. The in-line reg uses aluminum pistons to increase performance and to also save weight. The internal cartridge assembly can be easily removed from the fore grip housing for maintenance or quick replacement if required.

Rubber Detents

The Angel 1 utilizes 2 durable rubber finger detents to prevent double feeds and to help prevent force fed loaders pushing more than one ball at a time into the breach area.

New Angel Bolt – Introducing ‘Ball Kiss’ Technology

The Angel 1’s bolt has been fully redesigned and is now moulded from high grade polymer acetyl, rather than machined. This improves consistency and allows for an increase in the size of the porting and a reduction in wall thickness along the entire length of the bolt. The bolt insert has been moulded in glass re-enforced nylon rather than aluminum to further reduce weight and also improve on consistency. This bolt insert creates anti-turbulence in the gas blast to ensure the most efficient use of the gas possible.

The re-engineered materials used in the Angel 1’s bolt make it a full 50% lighter than those used in previous Angels.

The bolt also incorporates a small angled face located directly under the feed tube to aid in the reduction of ball breaks associated with clipping balls in the feed stack. This is more common with smaller sized paintballs or low quality miss shaped paintballs. The chamfered lip of the bolt gently pushes the second ball up and out of harms way so that the bolt can travel freely without the risks of clipping any additional ball that may be waiting in the feed stack.

Size and Weight

The Angel 1’s size and weight have been significantly reduced without compromising the design and performance features that discerning Angel owners have become so accustomed to.

A total design process has resulted in every single internal part being engineered to create the Angel 1‘s complete performance package.

The Angel 1’s main pneumatic advancements have been made possible by the deletion of the rechargeable battery, allowing the Angel development team to completely re-zone the Angel’s classic 3-bore design in to a unique hybrid chamber operating system.

Size

The Angel 1 is 7.2 Inches (183mm) Long and 8.6 Inches (219mm) high.

Giving it the smallest profile of any high end marker available.

Weight

The Angel 1 weighs 35 oz (990g) including battery/ASA/Regulator

and 38.8oz (1100g) with it’s ‘Feather-Lite’ 2 piece step bore ported barrel.

Every internal component has been reduced in weight. The materials used in their construction have been especially chosen to deliver maximum weight saving benefits without compromising or sacrificing any of the Angels legendary build quality or performance.

Balance

The size and weight of the Angel 1 have been dramatically reduced whilst retaining its ability to be comfortably held around the foregrip. In conjunction with its NEW slimline gripframe the Angel’s perfectly balanced and stable shooting platform has been further enhanced, giving the user ultimate control and flexibility. Whether you are laning or snap shooting with either the right or left hand, high rates of fire and accuracy can be effortlessly achieved.

Swing-out Rotobreach

One of the Angel’s instantly recognizable features is its unique Rotorbreech system. The Rotorbreech provides quick and easy access to the bolt and breech area. The Angels fully enclosed operating system keeps unwanted dirt or debris out of the firing mechanism, helping to reduce wear and tear caused by the unwanted presence of foreign bodies/debris within the mechanism, a common cause of inconsistency.

However delicate your marker may be on paint, periodically you will get 1 bad/cold/wet/swollen ball enter your marker to cause you problems. Being able to remove the bolt and gain access to the breech area for cleaning while on the field is vital, no matter what.

Triple Finger Trigger Guard

While the rest of the Angel 1 has been reduced in size, the spacious trigger guard has been retained. Players can easily fit 3 fingers into the guard if necessary, in order to achieve insane rates of fire.

QR Feed

The low rise feed on the Angel 1 incorporates an adjustable QR (quick release) clamping lever lock mechanism allowing the user to fine tune the locking mechanism to ensure a snug fit between the gun and the loader, it also ensures that the loader can be swiftly and easily removed if required no matter what brand of loader is being used.

Thinner grip frame

The standard 45 frame used on the Angel 1 has been slimmed down from 0.86” (21.95mm), to a far lighter and thinner 0.70” (17.80mm) to give the player increased comfort and control. The frame also has an integrated dove tail mounting rail as well as industry standard 10/32unf mounting holes for ultimate flexibility.

ASA

The Angel 1 comes complete with a centrally proted and fully adjustable dove-tail mounted air system adaptor (ASA). Like all things on the Angel 1 the size and weight of the ASA has been reduced as much as possible and with its central porting the Angel 1 is just as comfortable for right and left hand shooting. The ASA also functions as an easy bleed on/off.

9v Super Charged Angel Battery

By using advanced software logic and electronic components incorporating voltage stabilizers, the Angel 1 is able to achieve over 300,000 shots from a single 9v battery. The ‘Angel Power’ 9v battery comes as standard with the marker, which will exceed Duracell 9v’s in both power-output and life-span.

4 Point Trigger Adjustment

The trigger can be adjusted in 4 ways to give players maximum control over their trigger dynamic, the most personal aspect of any marker. Players can adjust the front travel and back stop positions as on most other high-end paintball markers. In addition to this, the point within the stroke at which the trigger will activate is also adjustable, as is the strength at which the trigger will return at, by controlling the attraction forces that operate within the trigger mechanism. This delivers ultimate control and infinite options when setting up the Angels trigger.

MROF

Angels have always had the reputation as being the fastest guns in town and the Angel 1 is no exception. In addition to having an adjustable MROF range from 10bps to 31bps, we now offer an unlimited MROF setting. The Angel 1’s 30+ bps performance is unmatched by any other paintball marker available. Period.

2-piece 3-bore ‘Feather-lite’ Barrel Kit

Included with the Angel 1 is the New Angel ‘Feather-lite’ 2-piece 3-bore Barrel Kit. This exceptionally light, micro- polished step -bore barrel kit includes 3 backs (.691, .693, .695) and one front end.

At last, a high quality barrel-kit that comes included with a high end marker. 14″ feather-lite barrel – weight – 110gms

Tool kit

Included with every Angel 1 is a high quality aluminum tool box complete with a set of spares and a set of quality tools for the undertaking of basic maintenance on your Angel marker.

You also get a bottle of Love Juice Gun oil and barrel bung.
