Preferred barrel: Not sure. Was using a 8" that it came with, just got a 12" J&J. Want to try a Flasc kit.
Any problems: Nothing that was the fault of the marker, just the idiot with the tools...Figured out my errors, think I have it tuned about right, but no chrono to test with.
Comments: Wanted a Viking since I heard about them back in 2002/2003. Got out of paintball around 2004 (moved, no money, etc). Got back in, 2 years ago, had the money, found my Viking local. It's suffered my ignorance (SCM is a velocity adjuster! Derp derp!), screaming at me with it's horrible inconsistency, before finally pissing air out of 90 degree fitting on the SW in the last big game, leaving me blind, furious and stumbling off the field.
I took it as a hint, since have stripped it, cleaned it, lubed it, read the manual twice. Set the dwell, set the SCM, set the SW to an "eyeball" 260-300 fps. Noid seems to have taken pity on me and my ignorance thus far, and let the previous physical abuse slide. I shall repay it with anything it asks of me in the future; after I read the bloody manual. Again.
