For the price, this is an excellent shooter. It might not be as "sleek" as a CCM s6.5 or t2, but it is definitely worth its price. The auto trigger is very useful, and the pump stroke needs to be broken in, but when it is it becomes a very light stroke.

This gun is GREAT. I haven't had it long and its done well. I wish empire would have them in different colors but oh well. I love it. It shoots well. I also love the barrel kit. Stock class is ok, I prefer open class. The AT is pretty sweet.

I origonaly did not want a Sniper. i own a CCM 6.5 and am very happy with it. Then this sniper popped up on Craigslist for Cheap. So i figure i pick it up and re-sell it.. when my group went out to the field it was the first time i used it.. i Found it to preform almost as well as my CCM. the barrels that came with it were great. very quiet sounding. awesome that it had the hitman mod already done. For the ppl that like the rock and cock style play it comes with the 10 round holder straight out of the box.. the marker itself is very accurate once paint and barrel matched up. the auto trigger is alittle rough but for new players it would be fine.. Its not quite as efficient as my ccm. seemed to use more air. My conclusion as far as Empires work. its a fantasic mid level or starter to pump. will keep up with CCM and customer cockers all day.. Deff a great marker for the money..

Empire Sniper This is a great marker for MRSP being at 500 bucks... My only roblem with the marker was the trigger pin was so loose (never touched it before) and it kept falling out!

Pros: Barrel Kit, built in auto trigger and hitman mod
Cons: Empire only offers on color, no slider trigger
I have been playing pump for 3 years, and this is my first high end pump marker.

For the money, you can't beat this pump. The barrel kit that comes with it looks incredible, comes with 3 backs, and has a nice long controlled bore portion.

The pump action is super smooth. The double pump arms have a built in guide that helps to make the pumping action ultra-smooth. The hitman mod is really convenient, looks sharp, and works flawlessly with the autotrigger.

My only real gripe about the gun is that it uses a hinge trigger, which just isn't as smooth as slider frames.

the empire sniper is an overall a great pump. i just happened to receive one that would stop the pump stroke half way and would have to use more force than usual to pump the marker. besides this the gun is amazing, coming with a barrel kit and a hitman mod to help size paint and make the pump stroke easier (to some people). the sniper has a crisp and easy pump stroke, ( very helpful when using the auto trigger. gun is very constant and would love to get another sniper in the future. this gun is defiantly one to pick up! would recommend this pump to anyone starting paintball or have played pump for a while! you wont be disappointed!

Great value for a pump marker considering the price and what it comes with. Everything provided touches on what a pump player could want from stock class to open class along with the auto trigger. The hitman mod is a nice addition that can be removed if you want. The barrel kit is the best touch for the marker for the price point hands down. The performance is where it needs to be for sure though, was spot on for my field velocity out of the box and didn't require any adjusting and shot amazing.
I would have liked to see a metal pump arm sled though and perhaps a slightly different trigger pull as far as adjustment. Overall though those small personal opinions don't matter to the overall marker performance. Shoots straight and consistent, can't argue with that for the price.
