AKALMP - Viking Reviews
AKALMP Viking I have had a few of these vikings. If they are un milled they are a heavy brick. Featherlite milling helps. The guns are very fast but also can be issue prone. Make sure that if you buy one of these...

I have had a few of these vikings. If they are un milled they are a heavy brick. Featherlite milling helps. The guns are very fast but also can be issue prone. Make sure that if you buy one of these that you test all pressures with a gauge on LPR and all. To much pressure will blow these solenoids. Overall a great gun once it is tuned.

I've had a few Vikings over the years, my favorite being my ebisu'd JMJ featherlight swirl. One of the most beautiful guns i've owned. The gun as extremely fast and amazing, but it was also on the heavier side. I'd definitely own one again, especially because they REALLY retain their value

Okay lets remember that this gun was out before most of you kids knew what a tippmann was. For the time that this gun was put out, this is before smart parts...and the fiasco with patents, it was a very reliable solid piece of machine. The was board in a viking with eyes was one of the nicest guns ive shot from before the muppet invasion.

Pros: fast, effecient. consitant, simple to operate and maintain.
Cons: you have to think too hard to try and find bad things about this marker and of course the break in periode but since there is no more production of these bad boys you can forget about that.
When it comes to paintball markers, this would have to be my favorite by far. It's fast, it's efficient, consistent fps, and simple design and construction. It's really easy to take apart and maintain. Mine is blind and has chopped like 3 balls because my cousin Messed with the LPR. Besides that you have tones of milling and customizations you can do.

As far as upgrades, AKALMP came out with the SST reg and SCMIII. If you think about it everyone knows that the best upgrades for most paintball markers are the Sidewinder or SST or 2-Liter, tornado valve, SCMIII

AKALMP Viking Great gun to use. It will shoot smooth and consistent, and give amazing efficiency. The only bad thing is how heavy and boxy the gun is

I got my viking used, but in great condition, I was instructed on basic upkeep of the gun and what not. Used the marker a few times, never had a problem.

Very fast and efficient bone stock, or with an aftermarket trigger.


I wasn't a fan of the unmilled body or the three tube bulkiness

But for the used prices, they're very reliable marker with great efficiency
