Why aren't AKA guns sought after more?

I played with a guy that had a viking, and man that gun kicked anus! Why is it so hard to find these guns, and why don't more people go for these guns?

I think the reason why more people don't go for these guns is for many reasons. One being that AKA doesn't sponsor professional teams. Another being they don't make that many. While SP is making tens of thousands of Impulses and Shockers each year, there are probably only about 5-6 thousand Vikings and Excals in existance. I think another one is that they are somewhat ugly. You can't deny that they aren't the prettiest gun on the market. Some players buy guns based on looks or milling designs, not on the actual quality of the marker.

I'm talking about stock bodied Vikings. I don't think everyone has 1450 to blow on a gun. I would have to agree with you though. I would probably take an 04 gloss pewter Immortal Excal over my DM4.

Yea they should have been gang-banged by SP by signing a contract that allows SP to get 100 dollars per marker.

sp=teh ghey...AKA made great markers, before they were forced to shut down. While it is true that they don't exactly look great stock, some people don't want to pay for looks, only performance. That's why people own AKA guns.

I agree with Joe. I like to upgrade my guns. With a viking you buy it, then you look at it. Then you play a couple times and realize that you have the urge to upgrade. Then you sell the viking.
