This is a great gun. Its reliable and shot a few cases right out of the box. The reg is a little awkward to hold but it isnt too bad. You will need to add a new barrel but that's one of the many things you can customize on the axe.

Pros: As smooth as egos, good look, good feel
Cons: Feedneck SUCKS, ASA is wobbly, Annoying Board
I absolutely LOVE the axe!. I've shot ego 09s dm9s 2012 g6r and none were smoother than the axe. But a couple problems include the ridiculous feed-neck, wobbly asa, and annoying board. The feed-neck is by far the worst feed-neck I've seen. It constantly needs readjusting, without the hopper the arm is very loose and moves around, just an overall annoyance. The asa is very good except for the wobble problem, blue loctite fixes it though. And finally I feel that the board is very cumbersome and not planed out thoroughly. You have to go in the foregrip and use the function button on the back of the board instead of simply using the trigger to change modes. This creates problems for on the fly mode switching. Other than that I absolutely love my axe.

Some say u should upgrade it and all, which really isnt needed at all. I say keep it stock and let the paint fly.

Empire Axe Overall, the Axe is a great deal for the price. It's comparable to a higher end gun for such a cheap price. Pop a V2 Boss Bolt into it and it becomes a whole new beast.

Pros: Accuracy, reliability, value
Cons: stock barrel
It's been over one year now with the Axe and it is still going strong. On the field it's accurate after changing out the stock barrel for a Dye Ultralight.

Over one year and the only maintenance issue was a detent came loose and was lost. However, I played on for the rest of the day with only one detent. The Axe has been dropped, rained on, jostled around on the speedball course rather vigorously and never sputtered.

The only upgrade I've had is the barrel, all other components are stock. It is cleaned and lubed every weekend after play. The bolt is easy to work with; setting it back up, it will chrono within 10 fps nearly every time.

There will be higher end guns out there on the field, yet I have never felt intimidated or lost out because their marker was better, more expensive, than the Axe.

Comparing air consumption to planet eclipse and other markers I play with and against, they seem to run out of air at the same time using the same tanks. So the Axe seems no better or worse regarding air consumption.

Do you need the Axe Pro version? Maybe if you are going to play tournaments and rec ball and need to change settings back and forth. But for hard core, every weekend play, Empire's Axe with an upgraded barrel has taken everything, every weekend for a year and performed flawlessly.
