Props to XSV, I get that they are sponsored by Kee. I also think it's really cool to release a custom team gun.
That said, hater talk inboud...

For $850 you can get both new and used guns that won't have a wobbly ASA every time you screw your tank in...(loctite, double screws, yea yea been there). Not to mention the foregrip is only held on by set screws, does terrible in the rain (check out Infamous at MAO...electric tape by the roll) AND did I mention the detent knob things fall out? Oh they fixed that you say in newer Axes? yea by welding them onto the gun, oh you need to remove one to replace or clean? Good luck, and once you do it falls out just like the older Axes. Wait, your regulator/ASA pressure is creeping? Your not consistent over the chrono? Well lets clean it and relube the regulator like any paintball gun, wait can't take the relay asa/regulator apart -- gotta send it to Kee and wait for shipping.

Make a Mini/Axe that isn't put together so badly and has a user serviceable regulator. All the anno/lasering/barrel kit/etc doesn't change the underlying flaws. Another problem if you ask me is Boss who does guns for XSV and Infamous practically redesigned the gun to the point where it has a different bolt system, is chrono'd completely different, has a Dye NT eye pipe and different feedneck. The feedneck is one you can't even get anymore as well (the nano). If you are Joe Paintballer and buy an Axe off the shelf, it's not even close to the same gun. They don't mention if it even includes the Boss XSV bolt. I also see it has the original stock Axe/Mini feedneck and not the nano (assume bcz KEE quit making them for no apparent reason), which is terrible IMO.

This marker is amazing! Looks even better in person and shoots amazing!
It doesn't come with the XSV Boss bolt because that bolt is not a KEE product, it is a BOSS Paintball Product. Sorry to disapoint!

Empire halted production on the Nano feedneck quite awhile ago. They originally made them for the Mini, and just had a lot of them left over when they released the Axe and people started installing them. Eventually the stock they had built up was depleted. There are definitely retailers out there that still have Nano feednecks for sure. I know we sell a few practically every week.

The Axe is a great gun in its price range (from the $460 base model up to the $850 team editions, and even higher for the Dark versions) and I know lots of people that play all different kinds of ball that are incredibly satisfied with them.

To Empire and XSV

Nothing wrong with the foregrip being held on by set screws - I've never seen a Mini or Axe foregrip come off unexpectedly. Fair comment regarding water and non-Redline Axes, however the Redline foregrip adds a seal between body and foregrip which prevents water ingress and the Redline board is water resistant, so you don't get issues in the rain.

Never had any issues with my detents - tightened them once when I got the marker 18 months ago and haven't touched them since.

The stock feedneck, while not the most aesthetically pleasing item, functions perfectly, although I can't understand why they haven't restarted production of the Nano, as they're incredibly popular items.

Wow, that price range is kind of defeating the purpose of owning an axe in my mind. Oh well.....

The whole wobbly asa thing isn't that bad, mine was wobbly out of the box, tightened it hasn't come loose since, but I think if you try to tighten it wrong one time, it will be tough getting it to be tight reliably, but I agree- horribly designed Asa.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
