I've had my Axe two years now and it's never let me down. I've played countless tournaments and practices with this marker and it's reliability has surpassed my expectations. For the price, it shoots very similiar to 'high-end' markers while being efficient and quiet.

With a Boss bolt and boomstick, this marker really can't be beat dollar to dollar. I list the stock barrel as a negative only because it's bore is quite large. The 12" barrel didn't bother me and I even went on to get a tighter fitting 12" initially. Now I use a CF Boomstick because it's a tighter fit which raises my FPS for the same operating pressure and makes the marker even quieter.

After 100+ cases through my Axe I am very satisfied!

Setup

Rotor with High Cap
Crossfire 68/45
Empire 2pc kit (for now, Freak kit on the way)


So, on with the review.

Bought it here on PBN used, seems incredible so far!
All my tanks were sitting at about 2k psi, and I was able to get off almost 2 cases of paint (so about 1 1/4 cases from a full 4500 fill)

Little bit heavy with a fully loaded hopper with the highcap, but that's just something I haven't gotten enough of a chance to get used to yet.

Incredibly easy maintenance with the push button bolt removal system. Currently getting a shockwave board hopefully in the mail from empire as I fried the board on accident getting shot in the side door of the grip. Incredibly smooth trigger compared to what I had beforehand, good balance.

Overall, for a mid-range marker, it can compete with those double its price

The Empire axe is the biggest bang for the buck .

To start lets talk about shot quality
The empire axe is one of the smoothest markers i myself have ever shot .
I personally would pick a Axe over a geo 3

The marker is kinda shaky or not as smooth out of the box but the "problem "
leaves the marker as soon as you shoot 1-3 cases through it .

If i could define the Empire axe in one sentence this would be it
"HIGH END MARKER WITHOUT A OLED AND A GOOD BARREL. "

The only think that is a MUST have is a good barrel kit . the stock barrel is not bad but not great. i recommend a freak kit , Shaft 4, or lapco fuse kit

Thank you Empire for a great marker

I have had a few markers in my day and right now I am in love with the Axe. This marker has never broken down on me, while my old SLG would have been jammed 3X by now. The gun fires smooth and is great with air mgt too. If I had to get a single gun to use for all play...I would get this marker again without even thinking twice about it.
