Another, "What Year" Post

I've searched through the forum, compared pics, and looked up serial numbers. Most sites I've found listing serial number look-ups are no longer in use. I've had this gun for atleast 13 years, haven't played in about 12. Recently just bought an empire axe, trying to get back into the sport. After my research I believe it to be a 2000. I'm looking to make it into a pump so my second question is where and who has the pump kit the cheapest. I sincerely hope I'm not being a pain in the @$$ with my question which I'm sure is asked all the time. Serial number is 84847.

You are correct, that is a 2000.

If you search for pump kits you should be able to find a new or lightly used "economy" pump kit for $25-$30. I just did a google search for pump kit and I found several brands that start at $30 for a new pump kit (WGP, Hooptie, Sanchez) . There are many choices out there...

I do believe this is a 2000 possibly a 99 but i doubt it. If you are looking into a pump you have a nice set of pneumatics on the front which i almost wouldn't change IMO, on the topic of a pump kit you can go with a cheapy for around 30 dollars, however i recommend a CCM pump kit they are of the highest quality and pump is what they do. As far as the different kits there are they these kits
Economy Pump Kit: which is the basics at the lowest price around 45 bucks
Lightweight Pump Kit: which is almost the same as the economy (i own two of these) they're quite enough bang for your buck at 50 dollars
Deluxe Pump Kit : (their regular pump kit) With three rods for support this is the best pump kit on the market IMO(in my opinion) i have owned several of these on several different guns they have no wiggle or play in the pump handle.\
You will have to order a pump kit according to the year of the gun CCM bases on eBay so you will find their products there.

Based on the serial number and the list in this thread, I'm going with 2000. The front block screw would be a whole bunch smaller than it is if it was a pre-2k body, too.

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate the help! I'm going to play a couple games with it tonight, I'll see how she runs before going pump. If there's a lot of paint chopping and I can't time it right I'll probably just change it over.

2000, 99 was completely different.

I recently got a empire axe out if no where. I had my gloves from empire back ordered 7 months. And out of no where the gun with no instructions or tools shows up in a box at my house. There was no charge on the receipt. Please help! What the hell do I do?
