Been Awhile..

So.. It's been awhile, like 3 or 4 years since I last played.. and have decided to give it a spin again..

I've kept my Viking in hiding since the last tournament and have brought it out from storage..

Random question, I had the snatch-grip piece on one of my former excalibers, and I noticed that DC only sells the whole snatch-grip frame.. anyone know where I may be able to get just that one piece..?

I also have a Pandora board lying around.. (I have WAS in mine..) Any use for it..?

My Viking is Picture #3 on DC's website

I am 90% sure I have a snatch left from when I sold my excal. I can check tonight. Send me a PM about it.

Thanks guys!

Jared @ DC had the jump and I bought one from him..

I'll check if the Snatch Grip works fine on my pump when I get the grip, and I may have to check again with you Cougar for yours..

Thanks guys!

Because Aaron didn't like them. That was an accessory that we tried to persuade AKA to make and sell. Aaron fought it then JMJ made one and sold a ton of them. He even made a full grip with it built in.

you would have made a crappy cheap gun out of plastic before SP?

(at least yours would have worked well out of the box)

I've been out for 5 or 6 years. Got back into it last year, and will be joining the AKA family again once I get my Excal back from DC.

Looks like there's a few returning from the looks of this thread. I go so far back, I remember when RevBubba was still around, and when Bartman was still Canadian!

I hate to admit how long I have not been around paintball. Probably around 2001 or 2002. I was at Skyball 2000, and passed on a Melimum angel waiting for the Excal to come out. That is just funny now........

I have follow the news some over the years, but have been out of the news for about another 4-5 years.

Has there been anything going on with the Excal or Viking? anything to just give me an update.

Thanks guys!
Jasson.

AKA was given a C&D from Smart Parts and stopped producing the guns. There's still a strong following and they can be found for sale used. AKA started to develop a stacked tube Viking, but that ended with the C&D order. There were a lot of body blanks made for the new gun and are now being made by individuals (me included). It's now called the Evil-M. There's a thread about it here: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3340155

xero28 - Thanks for that update! I was aware of all but the very last part. very interesting. Is AKA doing anything paintball related? or can they? funny how that works, since wargame (do I have the right name?) tried to sue AKA for the Merlin way back in the day.

T-Mac - yeah I head about that one too. I loved their barrels. What do people think of AKA and smartparts these days? love them? hate them?

thanks for the info guys! and sorry for walking on your thread Lawn!
