Afew Questions

Alright, well I might begetting a new gun for a back up and my team mate suggested these. I watched the videos on Infinity site and I am impressed, but I have afew questions first.

1. How much maintenence is involved with these guns? Right now I am shooting an AKA Viking, and there are no parts that need to be lubed, I only have to drop a little oil in the asa and I am god to go. Is the Legend close to this or does it require costant lubing like trixs and shockers?

2. Are there any aftermarket parts availible for it? Like bolts, pins, feeds, triggers, that sorta thing.

3. How is the company's service? Are they easy/enjoyable to work with? Do they ship replacement parts quickly and take care of their customers?

i havent been around so i cant answer Question number 2 but #1 there is only one o-ring to lube and it only needs to be lubed every 10,000-15,000 shots and they have great customer service

well, i shot one at my feild, and they shoot nice. The guy was a d-bag and would only let me take like two shots though. He was on wildcards so i think it would be a well tuned. I like how my vikin shoots and feels more, but i didn't get to play with it, or even rail on the legend. I am still spectacile sp? on the spring return ram.

biddle owns a Planet Eclipse Ego

I used to own a Dark Viking and it was one of the best guns ive ever owned. But I strongly feel the Legend beats the Viking hands over fists. The reasons are ,you can get approx 1200 shots off a 45/45 so the effecincy (sp?) is about the same as a viking, its way lighter than a viking and less bulky. And in my opinion is easier and more fun to play with.

The maintainence is very simple, just lube one oring and your set. Ive heard some people putting oil in the asa and dry fire it like you are doing with your Viking. But i havent tried that yet on the legend.

Legends come stock with WAS,CP reg,Hybrid grips, and a decent stock barrel (cocker thread). Aftermarket parts are in the works and Lucky is supposed to be making a board for it sometime soon.

As far as feeling uneasy about the spring return ram, the legends are very well designed and I heard the spring will last forever but only time will tell.


Hope this helps.

front air spring operation return or somethinglike that lol....

which is kinda like what the legend in, so he would know alot about how they work. Aka's are very nice guns never owned one but friend has and i like them, but i went with the legend because of the bulkyness reason of a viking. Im thinking the legend will be alot easier to snap with too

you really can't go wrong with the legend. It performs, and even out-performs with all the top guns right now. There is so much crazy Ego hype right now, but i would never choose an ego over a legend for many reasons, one being the 500 price difference.
