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.

Pros: Smooth, Easy Maintance
Cons: None so far
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

I recently acquired an Empire Vanquish and all I can say is that it is hands down the best gun on the market right now. The shot quality and consistency on these markers is unreal. This is also the straightest shooting marker I've ever owned.

Sponsors for this season is empire and there new Vanquish 2.0 is head over heels better then there previous go at the marker. This gun absolutely shocked me in its preformance. Right out of the box this marker shoot super smooth hardly and kick in it. There new barrel system that came on the marker made the gun very quiet. The new design make it feel just as comfy as the old style but a better overall look.

I have a 1.5 and love the milling compared to the 2.0. I did install a luxe tip on the freak barrel which I like better than the CF tip. Gun shoots great and love how easy the board is to navigate and program. I did have an eye go out and empire sent me a new one in no time. I have 2 empire guns and with their CS it is hard to think of owning anything else. Case could be better and have had some issues with bolt stick on initial air up, but take the bolt out (after degassing) and work it a couple of times by hand and its good to go. Could be the new o-rings are not broken in yet.

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)

Picked up used, with the barrel kit there is no reason that even new this gun isn't a solid deal. It out performs even the luxes j have shot which is boasted to be one of the smoothest on the market. Sound signature is also very quiet. The ergonomics are preference but if you have medium to large hands this marker will fit you perfectly.
