I'm just giving you grief as I've heard you bring up this subject multiple times.

One thing I realized is that the M has a little weight to it, but it feels more solid than anything else. I think between that and the RT valve this thing is going to be a steady shooter. As of last night I was planning on selling it, but every day that goes by, I am leaning further away from that. Might just need to keep this one

Just keep it, everyone that makes one of these spends way too much money and time to sell these. That and the anodizing on this Ehm is definitely by far the sexiest so far. I was going to do some extreme anodizing with mine, but I figured that I wanted to keep it simple so that the curves popped out and didn't get lost in the anodizing. I'm still in awe over that lime green, I also think a blue flame anodizing would be pretty killer as well.

LoL yeah ever since I saw the flame anodzing Merlin, I thought a blue flame would look even better. Probably would need black, silver and blue colors to pull it off.

I had seen this pic on PBLegion:


And it brought me back to 2000, when I was young and would look at magazines and drool over these type of marker ano scchemes that I could never afford.

I was considering the exact same blue. But then just looking around I saw the lime green on an ego, and just fell in love. To me it was the best of both worlds. To be honest the only thing that I wish I did differently was have a screen with the frame. Would have been nice to see all of the modes. But then again, it is pretty simple, like a viking, with just an on/off button. The way AKA would have wanted it! lol

As for the flame ano, I think I know the merlin that you are referring to and that was sick.

If you are looking to get an ano scheme that is pretty complex, get a quote from anotech metal Finishing. They did mine for crazy cheap. I think it ran me about $155ish with return shipping, and that included the polishing and everything.

Well hell, I'm having Jared send out my Evil - Ehm for anodizing at ATMF and the color is midnight blue type 3. It's probably still possible to change the anodizing color but I'm not at all sure what to do.

Edit* Just got off the phone with ATMF and I don't think the Midnight Blue is what I'm wanting since the anodizer said it will look black unless it is against something black or he does .0001 of an inch instead of .0002 thickness. I think if it's possible I'm going to switch to type 2 anodizing. I put a call into Jared so we will see what is what, but either way I will be happy to just have it done and shooting.

Was the Viagra Blue Vikings just a type 2 dust finish?

Just do the anodizing and worry about the board, eyes and detents later.

What frame are you using? That may limit the board. For the eyes and detents, I would just shoot Jared an email. I think he has that stuff in stock

On this one I have a Ellia frame for it, which uses a ego board. But I do have a cyborg frame too. I'll take couple pics to see which one looks better.

Man, that green camo looks great.

What are the requirements of the frames chosen for M's? Just the solenoid clearance? About how much space is required?

My guess would be the Elia. The borgs look a little out of place. Although, I don't think I have yet to see a complete one with a borg frame all anoed. So the finished product may look pretty good.

Yea, there is the solenoid. Plus you want to make sure that the trigger guard isn't too big that it hits the VA or Regulator. Other than that, just make sure that you can fit the board and electronics and battery in there.

Make sure the board mounts properly and everything is as it should be. My Elia frame came with the board mounting holes not tapped all the way through and I know a couple other people had problems with theirs. Also, do NOT add a battery before having it anodized as this can short out the board and damage it.

I would use the Elia frame personally, I had the Cyborg frame as well but just ended up selling it. The only other frame I would use would be the Acid Customs frame with the removable trigger guard.

thanks for the heads up will make sure to match up. I also remember some after ano that the holes on the frame did not line up with the body again. So maybe widen or lengthen them a little just to be sure. Yeah ellia frame for the first one and borg on the second.

Look into a virtue oled board for the shocker. You may be able to retro fit it into a legend with chopping the frame up. Also I think the legend and shocker use 45 grips. If you want a oled board that's specifically for the legend, I think there is a poll in the legend thread for 7th element to make a board that would be under a 100.
