Honestly, this is one of the best markers that I have ever used. When I got it, in a trade for a Bob Long Species Intimidator, it was a black unmilled 2003 Viking. I was able to send it in to Destructive Customs and get it milled and anodized, and when it was returned, it was rebuilt with a few aftermarket parts and tuned.

Since I have owned it, it has been reliable, fast, and highly efficient. I put two drops of oil into the on/off, and then screw in the tank and cycle it a few times. That is good for at least a case of shooting. Now I am not the fastest person when it comes to shooting, and yes, both Ramp and NXL mode have been used with the Tadao board that I put in it. It has never had any problems getting to an almost insane speed of cycling. And to date, I there are very few other markers out there that can shoot 2,000 shoots off of a full 68/4500 tank. My Cyborgs are about it.

I do have to say though, they are a bit heavy. In this day and age, where people are trying to get the lightest set up possible, measuring in grams how much this weighs and that weighs, some might think that the Viking itself, in unmilled form, weighs as much as other markers, air tanks, and hoppers. Also, the looks are not the most streamlined as others. No matter how you look at it, they are a brick, even with many of the milling patterns available out there. It's a bit of a look that ends up growing on you.

I've had my viking for years now and I love it. It shoots incredibly smoothly, is air efficient, consistent, has never broken down on me, easy on paint, and most importantly it's a breeze to maintain. A couple drops of oil and that's it.

For a marker that's 8+ years old it puts most of what's on the market in 2012 to shame. Granted it's twice the weight of many of today's guns, but in every other regard it's just as good or even better.

I have owned several Vikings in my time, and there is a reason for that. With that being said, all Vikings will be great. Vikings are fast, efficient, consistent and reliable. I have never had a single Viking ever break on me, and I doubt many others have either. The guns are just built with the utmost quality. The only real downside is that they are heavier than most current guns in their stock form. If you get your hands on a milled Viking, it will compete with(and beat) anything being produced today.

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.

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
