Great marker to play with, but my pet peeve is no OLED board, trying to adjust settings before a day out on the field, or on the fly changes for conditions at the field are just a pain, having to count red and green and yellow lights, and praying you are dead on the first time.

But for the price its an awesome piece.

The AXE is a great larger Invert/Empire MINI. Looks good, great for price, and so light on paint. I personally do not "love" the stock barrel but a nice CP or Freak kit will do (or any other aftermarket barrel). The feedneck pisses me off sometimes because it tightens and loosens without my consent. But honestly love the marker. Would buy another. If you are looking for a nice cheapER tournament marker that will do work and shoot ropes, buy this marker!

Empire Axe Axes are one of the most consistent guns on the market and are an amazing bang for the buck.

Picked this up from my local shop and it's been my primary marker since. All of the positives of a high end gun minus the price tag that normally accompanies it.

Swapped parts with a member here and it looks so much better.

Highly recommend to anybody looking for a tournament grade marker that is on a budget.

This is an amazing gun, great performance, looks sexy. Only problem i ever had with it was that i played with it in the rain and the board was fried but Kee Action Sports replaced it with an upgraded board ( Empire Shockwave ). All-in-All a great gun for any level or style of play.

This was my first marker since I owned Smart Parts Shockers back in 2002. Coming from the shockers, this thing blew my mind. When I first got it I completely stripped it down so I knew how everything works and what the internals looked like. Wow, I was blown away how easy this was to do, not to mention even a noob like me can figure everything out in 5 minutes. The marker out of the box shot well, but once I tuned it, it got even better than I could of hoped for. I also like that they dont go crazy with upgrades for this marker, because it really doesnt need any. I did buy LED eyes and Boss bolt and a Deadlywind Barrel, but it didnt really NEED these things. Well, maybe the barrel as the stock is really just that, its stock. I'd recommend this marker to anyone getting into the Xball scene or even paintball in general. The price can't be beat for the quality of marker you're getting. Overall my experience with this marker has been quite positive. I'm sure we'll run into issues here and there as nothing is perfect. But right now having 3 cases shot through it I can't complain. Props to Empire on a very well designed and reliable marker.
