Dm5'd viking.....Lots of pics(56k grab some popcorn for the wait)
 
Well i was really bored today and i decided that i didn't really like the trigger on my viking, it feels alittle stiff even after taking the magnet out. So i decided to DM5 the viking.


For anybody that hasn't seen it this is what i started with:




Some of the pics are crap b/c i had to use my old camera, which sucks.

First thing i had to do was shave off some of the back around the mounting hole as the viking screws are a bit larger at the head.

Forgot to take a before pic on this one.




After shaving, nice and level:



Next i marked the hole where i needed to drill a new hole for the front screw.

Then put it in the vice and made sure it was nice and level before drilling.



First pilot hole:



Second I drill the hole to size:



now I had the same problem as the back b/c the trigger is curved and wouldn't let the screw set level.



For this I used the diamond tiped ball thingy

After about 45 min of messing around with the diamond tip ball thingy.



After running all the wires the frame was mounted.



Grips on:






A very short movie just to show that it works, when the red light blinks it means the trigger was pulled. Your speakers are not messed up there is no sound.




My new might max volumizer(sp?) came in yesterday. I really got it just to balance the front so the SCM LPR isn't all alone.





The viking feels so much better now. Its more balanced b/c the frame is more forwaed about a 1/2 inch. I don't really care for the trigger shape, which was one reason i got the UL frame for my dm5, so i am either going to get a CP or try and find a techna, even though very few are out there. Furtue mods include body milling and anno. I might even wire it up to use a dm board.

The pictures make it look easy but please don't try something like this if you don't know what your doing. I don't want to be the reason behind you messing up a $100 frame.


As i was working i found my spyder se in the gun case outside and remembered that spyders use it come with a m-16 style grip. So i opened the grips up and found the find of the day.





my 45* spyder grip will fit on the phantom!!!! It feels alot better now.

The red dot is on there just for testing, its hard to aim in the exact spot after pumping without it.

Little bit of milling on the back to make the frame the same size and it'd be perfect.

looks nice dude, good customizing job, you should clean up the back of the frame so its flush, maybe add a fresh new anno to the gun, that'd be secks.
