Just thought Id post up some progress pics of my latest Viking project.
A couple months ago I picked up an 03 PBX Viking that Sam Rhodes had done a little milling on. He benched the project and I scooped up the remains and sent it off to Jared at Destructive Customs.
Here is what it started as.
Here is where the work began. I decided very early on that I really wanted to go with a single trigger on this. I play mech so much lately that its just more natural.
Here I had him round out the tubes and got rid of the oval body recesses. Slotted the trigger guards. Lightened the frame and dovetailed it so I dont need a rail and also chopped the top tube and bolt.
Here is the hidden pocket milling and the single trigger frame. He also recessed the frame screw holes. Nice little touch.
Here is the tray and noid areas. Id say its borderline anorexic!
Here is good shot of the body. You can see the "buttcrack" tube milling.
Here is the trigger for the double frame. Acid Customs cf. Though I imagine I will be using the single trigger almost exclusively. Its good to have choices.
Eye cover milling:
DC's stamp of approval. Kind of reminds me of a chicks lower back tat.
Got an RT valve for it too, going to be a nasty shooter. Its headed out for ano on Monday and I cant wait!
