AKALMP Viking Bought an AKA Viking after shooting and owning many SP guns. Although the Viking has a large body and weighs a lot compared to more modern high-ends, it's extremely consistent, efficient and reliable

While looking at the reviews my mind immediately went back to my AKA Viking, and how it's probably the best Electronic (Mech would be AGD) marker I remember owning.

I shot a "Dark Viking" for about 2yrs when I played back in the day with our local team "Falcons Fury".

It was quick, didn't chop paint, fairly efficient, but the thing I loved most about it was coupled with all of that it was a brick. I loved it. I felt like I had a sturdy beast of a marker in my hand, and that felt great.

Overall it's a great gun. The ergonomics are great. The maintenance factor is pretty easy overall too. Probably second only to the ergonomics of the gun is the accuracy factor. Fantastic with a paint to barrel match! If you haven't owned one of these bad boys, you should pick one up!

I bought one of these several years ago and used it for about 12 months before moving on to something newer and better. During it's service, I found it to be really reliable, extremely efficient on air, and as close to a paintball machine gun that I could get at the time. It was a little heavy but other than that it was awesome.

Some might say that they're a bit heavy, but custom milling largely fixes that. They are hellaciously fast and reliable. Parts are available through Destructive Customs. Very Customizable. They are consistent and efficient. Wonderful guns overall from 2003 that will hold its own with a new gun without issue.

clearly an underated marker considering todays technologies.

vikings tend to be a bit heavier than the newer markers, but can clearly hold their own when it comes to speed and air efficiency.
if you get a chance to own one, id suggest trying them out.

I do not have to say much about any AKA product because they are all AMAZING! The Viking I rolled with for a while was absolutely a pleasure to shoot. I have never had any issues with reliability when it came to the Viking. Everything about it was great. The old WAS boards were great and they really filled the air with lots of paint. Never broke any balls and always ball on ball every time.

If you get the chance to pick one up go for it. You wont be disappointed

AKALMP Viking The viking cycled slightly faster than its closed bolt brethren, the Excalibur. Both great guns!
