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.

Cons: plain milling, feedneck
i never pictured myself using the axe as a primary gun, and never bought into the hype. until i finally shot my team mates. i sold my gun and bought it, and so glad i did!
the empire axe is a great gun in my opinion. i bought it used but would easily pay the retail price for one. out of the box its a bit kicky, but once broken in and with a nice aftermarket bolt the gun shoots as smooth as some other higher end markers.
pros: the gun is durable and feels great in the hands, its trigger and shooting capabilities are solid and crisp. the tool-less bolt removal is amazing and ingenious design. just remember dont over lube the orings!
cons: i think the milling is boring. and the feedneck is sketchy for alot of loaders. but the way it performs overcomes these minor flaws.

it is quiet, smooth, reliable, and somewhat good looking. i have owned an etek 3, ego8, alien independence, azodin kaos, dp g4, spyders. i would easily choose the axe over them. for the price the axe takes the cake, dont hesitate to buy one. if you have any question feel free to pm whenever.

buy one! final score 8.5/10

I recently bought the Axe and have been very happy with it so far. Even using the stock barrel the gun is very accurate and very consistent. The only downside so far is that you have to remove the battery door to program the marker. Oh, and limited color availability from Empire. Other than that, this is by far the best gun I've purchased/used.
