I don't think so. The trigger is much different, reg is different as well as the feedneck.

I understand the reg is taped up, but it's too long for it to be a g6r

Different milling is different milling...empire makes feednecks no? What makes you not believe there could be a redesigned PL?

Th trigger was very similar to a macdev. Very wide rake trigger with a small hump in the center

Is the front grip a reg like a Luxe/Vapor or where the battery/board goes like an Axe?

Looks like the former.

That's exactly what I thought when I first saw the picture. An Empire G6r.

If it was a new empire Timmy, infamous would most certainly need to be sponsored by BL but we have not seen anything like that. I doubt they would keep that secret though, but we have been surprised before.

Now, this part is just my personal opinion, please keep this in mind when you read the next few sentences. Empire now makes their own markers, and now knows they can make a successful marker with the Axe, correct? Because of this, I don't believe they would go to someone else to make a gun for them, even a PL if they can do it themselves. It would be better from a business perspective.

Those are the reasons why I don't believe it's a PL G6R. Opinions on my thoughts/what I posted (as long as they are level headed ) would not be minded. Would like to hear your thoughts on these two points

How exactly is pricing the Axe at $460 attempting to pass it off as a high-end? Even with the Redline board and Super Freak kit it comes in easily under $1k.

High-end it is not. Performance of a high-end? Check!

NPS made guns when they had the old Empire Timmy's. It's not like the Axe was the first gun made by NPS/KEE. And why would Infamous need to be sponsored by BL to shoot an Empire branded G6r? If KEE has BL make a PL G6r for them, KEE could then give or sell the guns to whomever they choose. There's nothing illogical about an Empire branded G6r. And to me it certainly looks like it could be a G6r under all that tape. Not saying that's what it is, but I don't see why it can't be.

It's still a Bob Long G6R correct? In the past, with the first empire Timmy (which I personally love, and this also includes the gen4 empire) empire didn't own those markers. Bob long did. They were sold as an empire BL PL, but it was still Blasts markers.

I don't think so. From what I remember reading, Tippman got Angel.

Super excited to see what Empire brings us.

This...Jesus didn't notice it the first time. Do people not know the difference of meaning, or even how to pronounce it? This always makes me sad
