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

Empire Axe

IF YOU HAVEN'T SHOT THE AXE, YOU NEED TO!

I am very impressed with the way this marker shoots! It is now balanced in way that makes it very easy to hold and shoot. Smooth Ropes with a bit of kick at higher rates of fire about 15 bps.

The Trigger is a million times better, but it could still be a bit improved.

The feedneck needs a thumb adjustable screw, yet it gets the job done.

The bolt out of the back is bad ***! Real simple maintenance.

OLED Board would be nice because I hate counting lights. Hey the stock NT still requires math skills as well.

You will need a better barrel. I recommend a Disruptive barrel or PE.

On/Off is convenient and not difficult to use.

Efficiency - 10 + pods on 68/45

Consistency isn't its strong point +/- 7 on chrono with evil paint.

Overall

I am extremely happy with my Axe! With a new barrel, the only must have, I could easily be happy with this marker being my only paintball marker! I ended up shooting this marker at HB after Luxe battery died and NT went out. It performed nicely.

EDIT: Played with it in PSP mode. SHOOTS BEASTLY. MORE AND MORE IMPRESSED!

Bought an empire axe at the beginning of this season and wow was i impressed, sold off my ego 11 and dm12 because this is more then enough gun and will perform with the highest end markers out there.

The axe is super durable, i can go crawling through gravel, sand, mud you name it the axe will take it no problem. Ergonomics are good, more then enough room for big hands, MUCH LARGER THEN A MINI!!!! Grips are comfortable, detents are good and long lasting. Stock the axe is one of the quietest markers i have shoot, and is smooth and very air efficient ( about 9 pods off a 68/4500) Upgrading to a boss bolt only makes the gun more efficient and smoother!

Everyone seems to complain about the feedneck, but i never really had a problem with it, tighten it up right and don't be a tech tard and the feedneck will work just fine.

My only real gripe with the gun is the asa, the lever always seems to be flapping around in my gearbag. Air it up to fast and it will blow a ball out. Also when you degass it, it doesn't always purge, seems like a 50/50 chance it will degass. Degassed it one day and was packing up and accidently pulled the trigger and it shot off a ball, luckily i still had my barrel sock on. The gauge on the asa could also be a little more accurate.

Overall would i recommend the axe to a friend YES, great gun 8.5/10

best bang for your buck in paintball

Im a newer player that hangs with guys that have played for years and have nice equipment. I was using a rental set up just to play. One of the guys at the field i play has a brand new axe so i demo'ed it for a few minutes and i was sold!

Just picked up my first marker and that being an Axe so now we have two at our feilds and the rest of the crew sit's in envy. Today was my first ligitimate battle day with it and i had 5 kills in one game just sitting back,snapping and dropping balls where they needed to go.

I did use a two peice barrel on it today and it is very stealthy now and deadly accurate!

I really do not have a complaint at all except i had to retighten a couple screws which took two minutes! Using the prophecy hopper with it and it's a great match up!

I did buy the green and brown and have no problem with the color for woodsball purposes

Consistent/Low Pressure - I use my ninja LP reg, very consistent fps/accuracy.
Light - It's pretty light and small - but larger than a mini.

The Air adapter (where you screw on your tank) seems to get loose quite a bit during practice, etc. It's not fun to tighten back up either.

Empire Axe good gun for the price but was not a fan of the board loosing its settings when removing the battery. overall the gun is fairly smooth and had good efficiency and is relatively quiet.
