I have owned over 40 guns since 2009 including macdev droids ego 7-9 a luxe and a handful of shockers. The axe is personally my favorite marker I have used and is the first gun I have ever owned new and been the only owner of. I beat the hell out of mine and it still shoots amazingly I have told many people to buy one and have let them use mine, many of them have bought there own...I only wish the stock board was a little simpler and saved user settings when changing the battery

I love my axe. put my macdev shift kit on there and i was able to drop my OP to 120 psi (was beyond stoked). the aftermarket upgrades for this thing are unbeleivable (not that its not awesome stock) i just like making mine a little bit different than the other 1,000,000+ people that own one.
Over all solid marker havnt had it go down on me yet.
i baby the crap out of my internals so its kind of hard for it to go down..
my only other gripe is that the asa starts to come loose occasionally. but this is fixed with some red locktite and screwing it down nice and tight.
other than that solid marker.
Crazy efficient, smooth, quiet, and awesome trigger

Pros : for the price point this gun is hard to beat. Out of the box all you really need to add is a decent barrel. I used a CP pro barrel and found this gun to be as accurate as any high end I've ever used. The list of upgrades for this gun run long. They have bolts , triggers , frames , boards , feed necks etc all at relatively cheap price. The cost for maintenance is pretty awesome. The solenoid alone is only 30.00 to replace. Thats awesome considering most are 150+ .

Cons: Id say the gun could be milled down alot more to save some weight. Also the ergonomics on the grip and fore grip need to be redesigned for better spacing .Nit picky stuff , but hey if it can be improved FIX it!

The Empire Axe is a great gun. The price is significantly lower than that of most high end electro's on the market, but the performance is on par with them in almost every way.

The Axe is easy to tune to maximize efficiency or softness. Will it ever be the most efficient gun on the field- no. But there are plenty of options for you to maximize its performance. Several companies make aftermarket accessories (boards, bolts, eyes, etc.) that allow you to further customize your gun.

Another great stock feature of the Axe is the Relay ASA. A simple lever turns your air on and off. It also has a convenient pressure gauge.

The looks of the Axe are average - nothing special, nothing terrible. It feels good in the hands, which is all personal preference. It comes in a variety of colors, and parts can be switched with other axes to create even more color combos.

For the price, the Empire Axe can't be beat. Out of the box, it's a great gun, and with some extra money spent on aftermarket accessories, it is right up there with the other super guns on the market. If you don't believe me, just take a look at the winners of the 2012 NPPL Huntington Beach tournament - they were using Axes
