ego board on viking!?!?

Will it work? Will it need an ego noid too?I'm asking as for the wiring. I know there will be some milling in order to fit the board and noid into the frame. Help please!

No, it will not fit in the stock frame. A user here, matteusz, designed an aftermarket frame that accepts '07/'08 Ego boards. It uses the normal Viking solenoid and a wiring harness and thin tray are included. Here's the links:

also i encourage you to remember that even though the frame feels good on a light gun like an ego that may not feel the same on a 3 tube viking.

i know ul frames dont suite my taste on 04 vikings (i actually own one currently too). the gun feels so top heavy and wobly.

you may want to try an fbm aka frame.

just making sure so you dont get disappointed if your light frame doesnt feel as good on a viking as compared to the gun it was made for.

I will also take that into conderation. I can't stand the look of ul frames. It's just an eye sore to me. Is fbm still manufacturing parts?

I own a valhalla viking and love the frame. But I cannot say whether or not it make a normal milled viking feel top heavy. It certainly has a nice balance on mine though.

Are those just the milled down Viking with the ego style frame?

FBM is still around, i doubt they are still making fbm frames. They are easy to find used though. you can easily mod the dm5 and dm4 fbm frame to fit if you cant find an aka one. i honestly like the fbm frame the most for these guns.


the vhalla is in the pictures above.

and i think i have one of the lightest vikings with a ul frame on it and it still feels top heavy to me. ie if i dive i always seem to end up hopper first hitting the ground. this only happens like 25% of the time on my victory (mind you I am pretty ****ty when it comes to super-manning, but a balanced gun sure helps).

Re: ego board on viking!?!?

Well I just wanted a nice semi. I play pump mainly. My main purpose for having one of these it basically to have a cool little semi. It will probably rarely see airball. Maybe a little fun in hyper ball and woodsball. Now that I think of it I play with a 90 ci and that will solve the top heavy problem. The ego frame would be more in my favor.

Acid Customs makes them. The older version talon I have on my Viking is by far the nicest setup I've ever felt. The only thing I dislike about his Ego ones is that metal screw does not match up with the stock magnet in the frame. He does include a magnet to mount on the solenoid, although he may be able to make one to actual specs on request.
