Viking project -- 02 Viking

So, I've had my Viking since I believe January, it was completely stock (except for the eyes being drilled) and unmilled and anodized type III dust black. Luckily my first year of high school (this year) I had the option to have friends take shop class and they cut me out some nice custom grips with the laser machine. I named my Viking Vicky.See the resemblence? Hehe, anyways this is what she looks like (Before stripping and milling)



And this is just the body that's going to Destructive Customs for milling.



So I just sent the body ALL the way to Massachuttes to get milled by Jared. This is what i'm getting done for around $150. Keep in mind that this isn't the color it's going to be.

So the first cut is the tapered front, if i don't get the rest of the gun milled, will this look bad?

The next cut is the the top tube cut, hopefully this will make the back end of the Vike look better, I believe that this is the new DC tube cut, but don't quote me on this.

Now the last cut is the rounded "butt crack" milling.

So after this is all milled and I get it back, since I just sent it in, it should be about 1-2 weeks to get it complete, I will get it anodized when the wallet allows it. I'm taking a risk and actually going from type 3 to type 2. I want it gloss yellow, and if i re anodize it type 3, i can't get it gloss. Wish me luck!


EDIT EDIT Jared finished the whole Viking! Tapered front, check, butt crack, check, and the tube cut i wanted done, check. Here are the pictures!





^ COMPLETELY FINISHED! Now to send it off for ano!

Looks good. Make sure to go through a reputable anodizing shop because if they don't have experience stripping type III the can ruin your tolerances very easily.

I take it this is your first custom build? Jared is good, but not that good. A fast turnaround with custom milling is usually a month or two.

That's an awful attitude to have. These projects take time. Then again, no one here except for Jared or Marc could comment on the time quoted or delays or whatever.


Either way, good luck with it and I hope you don't act like a 5 year old if it does take a month or two.

Yes, because I don't want to wait 2 months to get something done means I'm acting like a 5 year old. go troll somewhere else.

If it's done only for your viking, why is it on your website as an available milling option..?

I've seen your streamline! looks sick. So are you positive that I cannot get this done? I really want it. Just a suggestion: you should maybe put some text over the picture so no one thinks it's an available milling option. It confused me alright, haha.

I seriously doubt the turnaround time of two weeks as well. Jared has had my Viking for a few months now and I only asked for a few cuts, not a complete FSP, round milling or anything. Well I don't think it has hit the chopping block yet, do I care though? No not really at all, Jared does good work and it's always worth the wait.

I think the fact that fsrxc1 is telling you its his milling and wont be done on other guns is confirmation lol. Im sure you could have something similar done though.

No, no, no. I meant a confirmation to see if my gun arrived, lol. After he said i couldnt do it, i already knew. I was just trying to see if my gun got there.

Awesome, sorry for all the confusion. I have called like 3 times in the past couple of days and there was no answer, I was starting to get worried. I do have a question about the tapered front though... When it's cut, does it round the whole thing? It doesnt leave any square edges, right?

I always thought that was an '05 / JMJ Factory Team back cut. They do look very similar but now that I look at yours again I see a very subtle difference.
