Viking milling (cough dremel) project

Well, I got a 2k3 half milled viking about a week ago. Of course the thing was a brick with a frame attached.

I could not constitute spending 200-300+ for someone to run it through a mill a few times so I took things into my own hands. So far I am very proud of it. It needs quite a bit done, but I want to try to have it out to anno by friday.

Before:



After:








It looks MUCH better in person. All it needs is upper tube,regulator dremeling and a good sanding.

I will keep this thread updated regularly.

UPDATE 8/9/07 Upper tube cuts made





Project for tomorrow: finish around the reg, and both sides.

Project for saturday Get the whole gun sanded smooth.

EDIT- FINISHED PROJECT MAY TOUCH UP A BIT, BUT SOON OFF TO ANNO!

How long did it take you to dremel off the top? I tried to do it with a spyder and it took really long so I quit.

I would try the steel wool. Sounds like a good idea but it contaminates the aluminum and is very hard to ano. Btw the gun looks good. I actually have a similar viking project going myself.

Toothpaste works well after you've used a really high-grit (is that what its called) sand paper. Its like a micro abrasive.

Im gonna say this once. Im not gonna allow this marker to look bad.

I cant constitute spending hundreds of dollars on DC just to get generic milling that half viking owners have. I can always send this out if I dont like the final result.

Like I said. I will update this thread.

There are hundreds of unmilled and milled vikings out there. They are not close to extinct.

For a dremel job, that is pretty amazing.

Milling can do more, but sometimes the cost isn't worth it.

Exactly. Especially because I am no where near done.

First of all. Atleast try to spell check your post. Also they are still beeing sold believe it or not. Aka has a a bunch of left overs before the lawsuit they will sell.

Not only that. Since half/unmilled 03 vikings can be bought used as low as 250-500 bucks. Why not dremel it?

I'd understand if he had a highlander or imortal or somthing rare. But he doesnt. But his project is coming along nice if you ask me.
