As far as I was told the ones on their site only include the body, tray, and trigger frame. Not exactly the best deal out there.

"Raw" guns from AKALMP were sold like this:

You buy the raw gun from AKALMP for like 1900 dollars

They send you the raw body, trigger frame, feedneck, SCM body, Sidewinder body, (Maybe something else I'm forgetting)

You have the gun milled and anodized.

You send the parts back to AKALMP for them to put the gun together.

They send it back to you complete.


The last I knew (about 3 years ago) is that this is still the arrangement with Raw guns from AKALMP, except that DC was covering the assembly process.

Things may have changed though, but any raw viking body floating around is supposed to have a full set of internals and electronics "owed" to it from AKALMP and now DC.

I specified viking in the last statement because AKALMP hasn't had raw viking bodies for years. Raw excals can still be had so I don't know what the situation is with those.

Cunha- they used to sell them as kits. I remember those days of sending stuff in after anno to be assembled and certified for the lifetime warranty. What they are sell now is just a body kit for the Viking which is annoed black.

Yeah I know that recently they have only had black vikings.

I just hope they would start to call them "Body Kits" so that the confusion can end. I wonder how much DC would want to put one together.

I checked a few years back out of curiosity and Jared quoted me $700 for a brand new dust black 04 Viking. I wish they would change the description on the site too.

The news from the thread over on PBN is that Larry has passed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time.
