Name this Old School Gun...
Acquired this via eBay a couple weeks ago. It was the gun used by Jamin Sneed of the team "The Family." Keely Watson played on this team btw . I'm not usually a fan of guns being laser engraved, but seeing as how our team played The Family back in the day, it adds old-school value to me.
Anyways, I have had two people state this milling pattern is that of the Skyball LED Angel - the prize package for the Skyball tournament back in the late 90s early 2000s. I've had one other person say it was just a rare mill like the YingYang or Infinity Angel LED. I don't believe it was a private garage mill either.
It is definitely NOT one of the following:
Here are pictures of the gun in question:
I went through just about every picture on warpig from 1998-2001 and came up with these action shots of the gun. Granted it took countless hours to go through them all and scrutinize the mill types... it was an old-school vacation of sorts Btw, I called the owner of WarPig and asked him if he had any pictures from Skyball that he never posted and he said no. It was worth a shot though - real cool guy.
Any help regarding this gun would be much appreciated.

I don't know anything about the gun, but it sure looks pretty.
Is that a bushland camo headwrap on the guy in the first picture? I picked one up last summer in a mag purchase. Use it all the time now.

Yours, the green one & the last one all look to have the early "Jacko Infinity" barrel. I think that barrel was discontinued before 2K...I could be wrong.
I have a buttload of paintball magazines from that era (APG,PSI,PCRI) and I think Skyball-2 & 4 on VHS...
I know some of those have mention of Keely Watson & The Family.
It would take me some time to dig through the archives, but it's possible that somewhere in that 1/3 ton of paper is the pic you're looking for.

superman - I posted a thread about a year ago for those guys, but nobody could figure it out.
PBpancake - warpig is where it's at. The site is hard to navigate, but the pictures are priceless though. You'd be surprised what you almost forgot about from back in the day.
Painthappy - Your guess seems to make some sense and be very plausible. Angels with this same milling pattern that I have investigated have strange origins. Photos of them were taken on the outskirts of the US. Do you know anymore about it? I just tried google searching phrases like: angel se special edition uk european paintball led ... but nothing really comes up. I also searched on google.de and google.co.uk to no avail.
The gun seems to be extremely rare in the US. I've seen more cobra and adrenalin leds surface than this mill type. It has that WDP look and feel to it though. It's probably my 1st or 2nd favorite mill on an angel led. Seems to almost bridge the gap in between the last led angel and the C&C lcd.

Myself and others would really appreciate if you could figure out and post what exactly the "Skyball LED" looks like. I know WDP gave away angels as prize packages for more than one Skyball tournament... but there was supposedly one Skyball tournament where they milled a rare run of what they termed the "Skyball LED."
There is another angel owner who believes they own a Skyball led angel. Here is his gun is question:
