I run my old Javelin or an ancient Dye Boomstick on my Viking.

I'm actually planning to run this "UPZ" barrel I won/traded for at a big game. The insides are nicely honed, the bore is pretty big*, and it just so happens to match my anno!



Failing that I can always use my match-anno'd fronts or my Freak with a bigger insert.

*IIRC, CockerPunk's accuracy tests showed that you either want to be significantly overbored or underbored. Match-bored proved to be the least accurate as the ball drags on the barrel but isn't getting squeezed by it.

Went to ANS yesterday and was stoked to find the 'exclusive' 16" lime green DYE tip is an almost perfect match to my gun. The color is spot on, but the finish is slightly too shiny. Now I can run the boomstick like how it's supposed to and retire the DW. Never felt comfortable putting a freak insert on an AKA gun.



Pretty sweet getting my viking more complete. Now if only DYE made a .676 back.

Hehe, I thought I might have been one of the last people who felt like that! Although I think the DW barrels are definitely in the top 3 best category of PB barrels, sliding that freak insert in there and then onto my precious Vikings makes me ill. So much so, I bought a used Null barrel from them, and then add the techt iFit kit to bore size it! I am dedicated to AKA, what can I say.

But I pretty much only run my Disruptive Paintball 15" kit now. I think THAT is the best kit ever for PB. Quiet and deadly accurate with an 8" CONTROL BORE!!!

No kidding. I had a hard enough time getting a .680 from them.

Bro, you just made my day. Sitting here with the flu, that totally put the biggest sh*t eating grin on my face.

THANKS FOR THAT and yes, still and always, F__K SMART PARTS. When I think about what AKA could have produced by now, Im sick. Actually there is a great article somewhere on how both the Ego and Cyborg were based on the viking and that AKA even had a spool valve marker in the works. Damn.
