Wow, where have you been for a year?

SP sued AKA, AKA doesn't make guns anymore.

Vikings will never break. Ever. Also AKA still sells parts, just not guns.

And they still have great service, so they still serve their customers who bought Vikings and Stuff.

you know couldn't AKA make a body, and all the parts but not assemble them so you could build the gun. Because technically they're NOT producing the gun, they're just making parts for it.

technically, they're just making parts for the guns already out there. They aren't making a gun, they're making parts for it (like cocker bodys)

I think i've heard a rumor that AKA has "something" in development. Something big, and scary. Of course, my mind might be making crap up again.

My buddy gave his gun to aka directly at a trade show. It took them 2 months to fix the problem and when he got it back they didnt even fix it. Its kind of funny because the kid got everyone in my area into Vikings. Nice customer service.

Smart Parts and WDP hold the patent to any Electropnumatic gun. Anyone making an electropnuematic gun has to pay royalties to those two companies. Pick up the new FaceFull, they have a good article on it. WDP are such homos, they tried to demolish the patent saying it was not right. Then found out they could make money off it and had a total change of morals... oh well business is business.

I read something about AKA making a new marker, called the Evil Minion or something, that uses an E-Blade to bypass the lawsuit from Smart Parts, looked interesting...
