im looking to buy my first speedball marker (i now have an a5) and im looking to spend about $350 on it and im buying used i have narrowed it down to a used angel a1 or a used shocker nxt or a new dpg3. now i think the a1 might be my best bet but people have told me they can be a pain if somthing goes wrong or it needs tuning (its my first speed ball marker) do u thnk it would be a good investment or should i look at the other guns????

thanx

ps i have techs near me

a1 are great, shocker arent. but the a1's are extremely difficult to take apart and are easy to screw up. you first gun should be nice and simple so the g3 would be your best bet. just be sure to have a fast hopper and hpa

I disagree that shockers are not great, my friend owns a tremor NXT that has never broken down, you just have to know how to do standard maintenance. But A1's are picky and a little harder to get parts for. I'd go with the G3 (just ordered one myself :) ) or possibly an SLG UL and save the extra $50 for a fast hopper, hpa, paint, whatever. good luck!

Does it have to be an A1 or a shocker? Do you have an open mind to options or are you kind of set on this.

Angels are not hard to take apart, at all. They are just as difficult as other high end markers. Parts only going in one place, one way. They come with manuals, easy to follow. My fly, has never broken on me.

Everyone in this thread that are bashing angels probably have never even came close to attempting to take one apart, or even shoot one.

you def have not shot a angel, a angel is like riding in that perfect car that gives you chills everytime you think about riding in it.
