Oh well at least people new they were coming. I think it was a good move though. I can't wait to get mine. I think I've talked the guys on my team into considering those to replace their Defiants. They said they want to shoot mine first, We'll see what happens.
Umm the point of my humor was visualizing Sully chained to the work table. If you knew Sully as I do that is improbable. Sorry you missed the point.

Auction, does AKA have a final release date for these bad boys?

I read something about ACE in this thread...will it be a free upgrade to owners of the guns or will we have to shell out extra cash for it?

Also, is a polished black annodizing extra or can that be included with the cost of the marker?

Thanks,
Mike

I've not gotten a drop dead date. The raw metal is on it's way to the anodizer and AKA is at their mercy. I wish they had someone closer with a faster turn around time to do ano.
The ACE will probably be extra. There is some milling involved and we gotta pay for machine time as well as the electronics.
Gloss black will be extra. I'm not sure how much though. Gloss isn't as hard an ano as the flat and the flat is the standard level.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I got it, I just shifted gears in mid track. My mind does that, I was just talking but forgot to start a new paragraph. I know who he is now, thanks for telling me I missed the joke though jk. Anyway,
I totally agree with the whole ano thing, I wish it didn't take so long and there is nothing AKA can do, our first 5 were forever till they got back. Oh well be patient, they'll get here, (yeah and I'm chomping at the bit, I hate waiting)

its terrible

Ive been eyeing the gun for quite some time, while saving up. and amazingly, I have enough money, but theyre not into high enough production yet :-P

Hopefully theyll offer stock annodized ones (gotta love the red acid wash) within the next 2 months (or sooner :-D)

I have the only one in Existance, (Original Viking kit)

Sorry to dissapoint you dude but our team has five, One custom milled and anoded pewter, one red, one spiral milled black to purple fade (mine) and two black, milled like the Revenge cocker. All with Hyper frames, All built be AKA and I set all of them up with the frames, We are also sponsored by Centerflag as well as AKA, we got these to promote the new Viking before they decided to have their own electronics,
I'm envious.

I called AKALMP almost weekly to ask about any dates on the release of the older Vikings. Atleast until they decided to redesign them...

I really wanted one too

I have an AKALMP Spyder VLM, but it'll be completed soon and was hoping to get one of the blowback Vikings as my next project. Ah, well, it coulda been magnificant.

crap...

I'm really stuck on getting the Viking now or save up for a couple months then drop all the money for an excal...

I guess I'll wait for some reviews. I want to see some tests done to see if it bounces off balls instead of chopping and how much recoil is there.

I hate waiting....

Talking selling the Viking

Selling the Viking and HAVING the viking are two entirely different concepts.

All of us are sitting on the tips of our chairs waiting for first shipments. Pant! Pant! Pant!

Vikings rock!

Just an opinion. Take and Angel and with a 12v revvy commence to uload the hopper as fast as you can. Watch as the paint magically breaks inside the marker. Watch as gas is sucked down like a coors in the hands of an alcholic. Look at the really cool milling and ano and hundreds of crap to slap on it. Then remember that this thing just cost you around $1000.

Now take a viking with the same revvy and unload it as fast as you can. Watch as the bolt doesn't chop paint. Watch as the tank magically doesn't drop in pressure. Look at the really rugged black ano and smooth body with no need for aftermarket parts. Then remember you paid $775 for it.

Now holding your Viking, look over at somebody swapping the barrel of their Angel...and SMILE!
