I've been out of paintball for a while but was thinking the other day if I ever get back into it Im going to buy a viking and custom mill it. I think it would be pretty neat to rep such an old legendary gun.

Anyway, what would a perfect mechanical condition viking usually run? Exterior doesnt matter much as I would probably mill it and anno it myself.

From someone who has done several projects, it is a lot cheaper, easier, and faster (even if you have to wait several months for the right one to go up for sale) to just buy an already milled gun. If you enjoy the process of having little custom touches done, getting it exactly how you like, and don't plan on selling then building is the way to go. As far as prices that depend on what options it has. Here's my estimates on what they've been going for recently.

'03 Viking = $300
'03 Excal = $375
'04 Viking = $350
'04 Excal = $475

Bag included (+$30)
Matching Javelin (+20)
JMJ (blade not included) or Acid Customs trigger (+$20-40)
Tadao (+$30-40)
Blind (- $75-100)

I would say $40 for the bag is reasonable.

I would say the gun is worth $400 - $450 as well, the price would increased if it had a match anodized barrel and bag.

he speaks the truth

also people need to realize that getting a 80% return on the $ you spent on milling and anno is absurd. at best you can expect maybe a 50% increase in value due to the fact that if someone was spending their own money to anno the gun it is highly unlikely that they would choose that same exact pattern.

That is my gun and its up on ebay. Ive been here on pbnation for about 10 years so consider it a good buy. I cant belive it didnt hit my reserve last time of 475. Someone is going to get one hell of a deal on that gun. Its an absolute machine gun.

And yes, the Foreskin color anno is unique and looks much better in person.

I've seen that color before, on a Revenge V2. Can't remember if it was a V2 or a V2 LE.
