Empire - Vanquish Reviews
Empire Vanquish this gun is incredible. my only grippes with it is the detents getting bent because the bolt is always in the forward position when in the case. and the barrel finish is terrible.

So far this is the best gun I've used in paintball. Have the Atomic Orange which not everyone loves, but i think is a awesome color(Texas Fan . Super smooth shot, so much that if feels like the gun is shooting at 120 fps. The most accurate and consistent gun right out of the box. Board is super easy to work with, and is super bright even out in the sun. Also that it comes with the freak kit and carbon fiber tip is just awesome, along with all the other cool extras you get. And lastly with the gun only needing one allen for the entire gun is just great, makes it easy to work on, or even just adjusting the trigger or replacing the battery there is no looking for the correct allen. Overall love the gun so far, and empire did a great job.

I got my vanquish brand new and used it for the first time right out of the box at NPPL: Windy City Open. I never had a single problem with it and love the thing to death. Love the way it feels and it shoots super smooth right out of the box. The biggest thing that sold me about the gun was the one allen key to adjust any part of the marker.
Only thing I wish the vanquish came with was a paper manual

so after being a luxe dick rider so long, i decided it was time to try something new. when i was offered a vanquish for 650, i scooped it up in a hurry.

first impressions:
very sleek, looks better in person for sure. felt great in the hands and very balanced with a hopper and tank. i did think it was a bit loud and had a slight "kicky" feel to it.

installed a boss bolt, WHOLE NEW GUN!!!! this absolutely changed everything about the gun. its sooooooo quiet and smooth now, and even more efficient than before. i actually just sold my luxe because it couldnt even compare to it anymore (no joke)

overall this gun is a solid shooter, and with a boss bolt, its one of the best you can shoot, guaranteed. (note, this was before the1.5 updates, im sure with the updates the vanquish shoots even better than a stock one)

I've shot my fair share of markers, but the Vanquish is one that I enjoyed dearly. I'm 6'3 with huge hands and the Vanquish is the perfect fit, grips feel nice and it's also lightweight. When I first ripped a hopper throught it, I was surprised at how quiet and responsive the trigger felt. It also had little to no feedback as well. The only issue that I have with the Vanquish is the design flaw of having to store the gun without the spring in the bolt. Being that it is a 1500 dollar marker, that should have been noticed and fixed

The Vanquish is a great gun

When they were initially released, I thought the milling looked terrible, the grips looked cheap, and had no interest in buying one. A few months later we picked up vanquishes as team guns and their performance really won me over. They are soo comfortable in the hands, the board is easy to navigate, the shot quality is awesome, and efficiency is on par with other spools. Add in the 1.5 updates and I think it easily beats the Luxe and Clone.

Ok let me start by saying this is with 1.5 updates with that said wow empire did a really good job with this marker the ergonomics are really my favorite of any marker I have held now this is coming from a player with large hands so keep that in mind this is a long marker such as a luxe. Next, the shot quality it's very much a smooth shot as a luxe the red bolt is very nice and the smoothest of the 2 bolts I personally do not mind the silver not as smooth but I am positive it get better air efficiency which as a back player is important to me but overall no matter what bolt it's very quiet and quite efficient. Reliability wise with the 1.5 updates it is much improved from what I have heard I got one that had the updates in it new the new detents work great the new spring is great if you are not aware is snaps onto the bolt guide which is genius and eliminates the problem of the spring being bent such as seen on luxes. Next is the value it comes with everything love the barrel tip love the REAL carbon fiber tip with the quick threads you even get a cool bottle opener and headband and I really enjoy the soft neoprene case with lots of compartments and I can't forget the nice Allen wrench that allows you to work on whole marker and with the proven redline OLED board you can't go wrong. I will also say on a side note the board is easy to update you just plug it to your PC and run the update file with the step by step instructions in the manual it very easy OVERALL: I have shot every marker on the market and this is the only marker to me personally that has it all I really enjoy using it when you put the feel, shot, and reliability of this behind you it just feels so right everyone I have let shoot it and shown it to was very impressed and I know people who have bought them since I have shown them
This marker. I recommend everyone to try this marker
