i got this used from a buddy came with the boss bolt, put my 14 inch freak barrel on it. shoots like butter all day. great air effec. the stock feedneck works for me just fine. might go with the foregrip extender in the future."personal pref" Only con might be stock barrel from what ive heard and the asa might come loose every once and a while if the rail set screws back out a little, can be fixed permantley with blue loc tite. Overall would recommend to anyone looking to get into tourney play. can keep up with the rest of them, only variable is the user.

I shot this gun for a while as my main gun. I never had any trouble with it as I maintained the marker very stringently. Many of my teammates shoot these markers as well, and them being not so stringent in cleaning, also have just as reliable output from the marker. All around a good marker for the price, just a bit heavy, but something has to give or else it would be easily $800+

Pros:
Shoots smooth and quiet - Shoots like a more expensive marker
Easy maintenance - Bolt removal is easy, no LPR, HPR factory sealed
Single tube - Looks like a spooly

Cons:
Heavy - Annoyingly heavy when playing all day
Feedneck - Terrible stock feedneck, use a Nano or similar
Barrel - Terrible almost unusable stock barrel, replace for sure

Really a solid gun, shoots well. Does require some money invested for upgrades to get on the level it should be out of the box.

Well for starters holy smokes, the new Axe Pro is astounding. My team is doing a sponsorship with Empire for this season and most of us were going to get the Vanquish 2.0 package, but most of us are now getting the Axe Pro package. My buddy got a good deal from the shop he works at so he picked the silver/brown one up early after selling a gun yesterday. We shot it in my back yard putting 2-3 hoppers through it with some 2 week old PWI Bombz from practice that had just been sitting in my caddy. Didn't add any new lube or anything, pulled it out of the box and shot it.

First I will start with the looks. This gun looks even better in person than in the pictures. (You'll see what I mean once you get your hands on one.) The lines are so sleek and the eye covers look amazing along with the new Axe Jewel on the gun. The body is about the same size of the barrel until you get to the bolt guide and it flares out a bit from there. You can't get a better feedneck than the one they put on the Axe either, looks great and it low profile. The new trigger frame and front grip look loads better and also feel much better. This gun feels like any other top of the line marker you can buy. The new Driver X .688 two piece barrel is an awesome upgrade to the gun as well. Looks and shoots great on the gun.

As for how it shoots. We used my Ninja 68 SL Tank and his 240rd Z2 Loader. The paint was still in fairly decent shape, some dimples but not terrible, very brittle too. We literally pulled it out of the box messed with the board settings a tad and started shooting. I could not believe how accurate and consistent this gun shot. Ball on ball every dang shot. Didn't have a single chop or barrel break either. Never had a single hiccup during shooting. The trigger is very adjustable and felt great once we messed with it a tad. We were both blown away with how well this thing was shooting out of the box. It was shooting so good my buddy decided not to get the vanquish package. With the 68 SL tank it was perfectly balanced if you held the gun right behind the trigger frame under the bolt guide. The new bolt guide and bolt release button are also a much better system than the old Axe.

I really liked how the gun felt while shooting. Almost zero kick and it was fairly quite too. The new front grip gives you plenty of room to hold the gun any way you would like. It's also not too wide from the battery being flipped on it's side. The new trigger frame is also perfect size, not too big but not too small.

I am very excited to get my Axe Pro package. It's so small and powerful. Empire really could have charged $999.00 for this gun if they wanted to but they didn't. This is honestly one of the best looking guns I have seen in a while. Everything on it screams, look at me now!

Bought this gun while I was deployed to Iraq in 2011. Got home from deployment and started messing with the gun and it was awesome. this gun shoots ropes right out of the box. I bought the boss bolt, freak barrel kit and rotor hopper and the gun shot so much better even though it shot great to begin with. I would recommend this gun to anyone thats not looking to spend a whole lot to get into paintball. This gun will shoot just as good as any very high end marker.
