The new Empire AXE is a Mini on steroids; bigger, badder and willing to punish opponents.

The Empire Axe is by far my favorite gun to shoot to date. I have worked in both paintball fields and stores and have shot quite a few markers. The Axe is smooth, quiet, and efficient, especially when properly tuned. I had the honor of owning a NPPL Phoenix Contact team Axe with Boss bolt and acid customs CF trigger and tuned amazingly. I should have never let that one go. The best part about the Axe is, you can own a stellar marker for less than half of what some people pay. This " mid end" marker, as they classify this, will perform along side of any high end you put next to it. I'm certain that if they didn't perform well, pro teams would not still be using them and would switch solely to the vanquish. The only minor minor complaint about the marker is, there are some parts when completely disassembling it that are kind of a pain to service or clean: ie the eyes. But I enjoy spending time learning and servicing my markers, so it doesn't bother me much.

Cons: Asa needs to be tightened sometimes
This is one of the best guns out there. It shoots like a dream. Some people do not like the stock barrel, but I think it is fine unless you have money to burn. The quick bolt release also saves a good amount of time lubing the gun. It is also very efficient. The gun feels amazing and comfortable too. The only con I can think of is the Asa gets loose after a couple games and it needs to be tightened but it's an easy fix! If you are choosing between the Etek, the Mini, and the Axe, defiantly choose the Axe you will not be disappointed. Im proud to be an owner of the Axe

I love my Axe, this is my 2nd marker. Had it for about 6months now. I tried to upgrade the bolt (Boss V2) but my Axe did not like it too much. I tried everything Boss suggested, and had no luck.
It is a really solid marker for the price, once its run in, pop on a decent barrel kit and you are good to go. The maintenance is easy, and it should last for a long while, if you clean and look after it!
only reason I will change is for a lighter marker, and something more high end, thats it.

Had my axe for a little under 6 months now and I have to say that the gun is well worth the money. The gun seemed like a great deal for the price being that it was a third of the price of other guns that did mostly the same thing. And then my solenoid went down. I called customer support but the tech was out so I left a message. The tech not only got back to me, he helped me figure it out over the phone. He said if that didn't work or if it went down again to call back they would send me a new solenoid free of charge and if that didn't do it they would fix it if I shipped it to them. Luckily it worked and it is shooting like a champ again.

My only real complaint about the Axe is how ungodly inefficient it is. This thing will make you thankful for field air passes.

Great overall gun, and for the price it has tremendous value. The only thing I don't like about it is having to remove the battery door to change firing modes/dwell/etc. You can get a redline grip I realize, but that's the biggest limitation of the stock gun. If you play tournament ball, I recommend starting with an Axe pro.

Shoots really consistent, I just love the feel of this gun; plus it's a nice gun to get into the sport with. One that doesn't break the bank, but can hold it's own on the field. Looking to throw a freak on it and the Boss V2 and then this will be a great primary or back up.

This is arguably the best value in paintball. It is smooth, quiet, moderately efficient, there are plentiful upgrades and the price is reasonable. Kee also has THE BEST service in paintball. Hands down.

The ergonomics seem to be a bit polarizing, but if you grip up high and barrel wrap then it gives a very stable feel.

All said, it's a hard gun to beat at any price.
