What do you think my Viking is worth?
Hey guys... trying to figure on what this baby is worth. I was thinking around the 900 neighborhood.
- 2004 AKA Viking
- DC FSP Cut with "Front Towards Enemy" Engraving
- No Rise AKA feed
- RT Valve
- DC Volumizer
- Tadao Ebisu Board
- FBM Fierce Frame with Delrin trigger
- 2 Liter Plus Regulator
- SCM 3
- Bob long ASA with on-off
- Dye sticky 2 grips
- JMJ Snatch grip
- Perfect gloss black ano
Let me know what you think.

Was this the one that was up on eBay recently? If not, check there as I believe there was a very similar one for sale recently.

No thats not it - I haven't thought about selling my baby, until now. I will check ebay but no this gun has only been mine.

I'd say 900 is pretty ambitious for it.
My most recent AKA acquisitions were.
FSP 04with all internal cuts and RT Valve and Tadao: dust brown with wear @$600 shipped.
FSP 04 all internal cuts and buttcrack - regular valve and Tadao and a Powerlyte match anno'd barrel kit - absolutely immaculate stormtrooper anno @$700 Shipped.
Picked up the first in 2010 and the other in 2011. I don't expect realistic prices to have gone up. If you were very patient you might get 900, but I doubt it. At that price you are more expensive than a used ego11. Which is the most similar quality gun currently in production.

So... I don't know. $900 doesn't sound crazy. You DO have lots of nice goodies on that beauty.
I mean, I just sold (a month ago) a completely stock '04 for $400, and you've got a great milling job (+$200), a great frame (+$150), a nice board (+$100), and a simple anno that has mass appeal (+$100). Plus a few other nice additions. So, $900 doesn't sound like a rip-off. It sounds fair. You've pretty much put together what I (and many other, I would dare to speculate) would call a "perfect" Viking. For anyone else to recreate what you've done, they'd have to (a) spend more money than your asking and (b) wait a long, long time to go through the process of milling, anno, etc.
If you are committed to put it up for sale, I say go with your gut and start at $900. If it doesn't move and you're getting desperate, you can always lower the price later.
That said, if you do want to start lower.... like, $700, I can assure you it would move real quick... if you know what I mean (wink wink, nudge nudge).
I wrote a book. For reals! And it's even getting good reviews.

Want to cover you stainless steel lines with something nice? I've got heat shrink tubing.
