Im gana repost this from pbnation so we can have one on fly fourms alot of FAQ anserable question get asked make this a sticky please
-Are Angel's inaccurate?
+Angel's are is accurate as the user makes it. A properly tuned Angel with a tight paint to barrel match and a consistent airflow running into the gun will be as accurate as a machine slinging a spherical glob of vegetable oil at 200 miles per hour can be.
-Do Angel's have bad range?
+Thanks to physics, Angel's have as much range as any paintball marker excluding the flat line barrel system. A paintball leaving the breach of a Autococker at 280 FPS will shoot just the same distance as a angel given the same tilt, weight of the paintball, humidity, FPS, wind, stillness of the gun, tight paint to barrel match, and so on. Now, 10 feet might be the difference, but you can't keep all those variables consistent. Also, those variables can work with or against any paintball marker.
-How many shots will the battery last?
+ 75,000 shots is a safe number to say it will last too. Not all batteries are the same, so some might get more, some might get less. This is true with ALL batteries.
+MROF stands for Maximum Rate Of Fire. Its job is to limit the solenoid to X number shots per second (X is the number displayed). Always set this 2 BPS lower than what your loader can feed.
-Where can I get a manual?
+www.angel-owners.com has online manuals on the site. You can order one from www.theangelguy.com

Back is the LCD display with full menu options, and a host of new performance features are included. The Bolt, 14 way, Ram, and trigger have all been modified to deliver awesome firepower with incredible accuracy. (Taken from www.MosPaintball.com)
This may NOT be a complete list.
-Does the shot count matter?
+No. First, It doesn't matter how many shots it has as long as it shoots and feels great. Second, if you are interested in buying a used Angel, it takes very little effort to make the shot count go from 500000 to 000000.
-What does the Data Link do?
+The datalink is made for the LCD. It allows you to alter board configurations and change settings such as dwell and MROF via computer. It carries a hefty 80 dollar price tag however.
-What does the Sexy Angel program do?
+The Sexy Angel Program is used in conjunction with the datalink. It allows you to change pin, shot counter, and ID numbers.
-How do I access The mini-reg?
+Accessing the mini-reg is actually quite easy. Do NOT continue past this point unless you have a pair of Ci-Clip pliers. First, take the pliers and take the ci-clip out. Place it on a sheet of paper on the topside. Next, turn the reg upside down and basically tap it against the table or any level hard surface until the big piston comes out. Be careful of those shims (little metal concave rings) and don't change the order. Place the piston under the ci-clip. Turn the reg upside down again and tap it a little harder on the surface, hitting it pretty hard if need be until a small piston and a ball bearing come out. Place that under the large piston, and now to put everything back, just work your way from the bottom to the top of the piece of paper.
-How do I service the min-reg?
+ Refer above to Accessing the mini-reg and as the final step before putting it back, inspect each thing for gashes, deep cuts, or scuffs. Then, inspect the o-rings for breaks or cuts. With a dry paper towel, dry off all the grease and re-apply with new grease. Then, re-assemble.
