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

When I first picked up my Axe I was very skeptical about it. It is a little heavier than most guns out there and the ergonomics of it are much different than any other gun I have used. When I started playing with it, however, my mind was completely changed. It is pretty quiet and insanely smooth. The trigger is very solid and does not need to be changed. The ergonomics of it are still iffy, but they are growing on me. My only other gripe with the gun is the stock feedneck. However, once the loader is clamped down it doesn't really make a difference. Overall, I don't think there is another gun out for the price that can compete with the Axe.

I absolutely love this gun. It shoots so accurate right out of the box. Very lightweight and feels wonderful in my hands. Pretty easy to change the modes once you're used to it. Definitely love the changes they've made. The gun shoots super quiet with little recoil. It's an easily maneuverable gun. You will not be disappointed with this marker. Pick it up and give it a try. Definitely one of the more underrated guns out there at this price.

Empire Axe Bought this gun used and it works like a charm, no chops or breaks, smooth as a pebble. Got a lurker bolt in it so its even better. Best bang for your buck.

I bought an Axe from my local dealer and it simply blew me away. It fires very smoothly, and accurately even with the stock barrel. The frame is very sturdy and can take the pounding one expects when playing any level of paintball. It is very air and battery efficient, but only if you actually take the battery out after each use because the marker will empire provides you with a thorough maintenance walkthrough in the manual, and no tools are required for basic maintenance. I use hater lube before and after you play, and grease the bolt after every 3-4th use. The only con to this marker is that it is a bit loud when shooting fast, but otherwise has tournament worthy performance. Lastly, the board is very easy to program and requires no time at all. I added a redline and xsv bolt as well.

Cons: Ergonomics, feedneck, stock barrel
Overall, I absolutely love my Axe. It is in my opinion, the best mid range gun you can get for your money. It is quiet, reliable, easy to maintain, and efficient... the only gripes I have are the foregrip is kind of an awkward shape, the stock barrel is not the best lengthwise (12") and the feedneck is also not the best. Overall, I would definitely recommend this gun to any player looking to get into the sport.
Also, the customer support (Kee) is one of the best, if not the best, in the business so if your Axe is messed up somehow, they will get everything sorted out.

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.
