Get a good/fast hooper (Halo's/Velocities/Reloader B) and you should not break paint. I changed batteries on my Viking and it reset the marker to stock settings and I chopped a ball. You are better off keeping her! AKA makes exceptional markers! Low maintaince, rarely breakdown, easy on the air tank, accuracy as good (if not better than anything else).
Bottom line is you will be playing while your friends are in the staging area teching their DM & Timmys!
Good Luck! AKA Excalibur PBX excal Diamond Dust WAS Hammerhead LP on eBay Markers, Paintball, Sporting Goods
One on ebay right now, it is not stock, but should give you a good idea when it sells.
Search ebay for AKA + paintball and then check the completed box on the left side. You have to log in to ebay to check completed items. 2003 AKA excal excalibur w/ eyes NR on eBay Markers, Paintball, Sporting Goods
Basically, a 03 Unmilled Excal $365 + shipping, has eyes & tool kit, humphrey noids & WAS board, JMJ trigger and snatch grip. Aka Excalibur Red and Black acid wash NO RESERVE on eBay Markers, Paintball, Sporting Goods
03 Unmilled red acid wash $355 + shipping, has eyes.
Based on ebay sales, I would say closer to $300. With smaller paint, the Excals have fallen out of favor. With a Viking (open bolt), roll outs are not a problem.
There are no more eyes for the older Viking/Excals, unless you get lucky and find some. Keep her! Love her! Enjoy her! Shoot your friends!
