Spire Compatibility w/ 2015 Axe Pro

Saw and heard odd things about the hopper not fitting correctly onto the marker. Anyone else have personal accounts to prove or disprove this? I have seen videos of the older pro models working fine but the feed necks on the 2015 models are a toss up.

Sorry if this should be in the loader section but it is the 2015 Axe Pro specifically that I'm curious about.

Yes I was probably the first person to post about this probably. Boss paintball looked into it and the feedneck is slightly bigger on the axe 2015. Do not know where the thread is but i posted this a while ago along with others. I called paintball solutions. They offered to let me send in my gun for free and have a different feedneck put on that fits the spire.

Aw man, what feed neck did they end up slapping on there?

I have not sent it in yet. But i think they told me it would be the one from the sniper. They asked me what color and everything I got.

Seems like you got lucky on that one, rryanharris17 and mrpresident2107 (who used multiple combinations) had problems too. Hoping more people can weigh in on this.

There was no Axe Pro model prior to the 2015 model. The regular Axes came with a dofferent threaded feedneck that was of pretty low quality.

2015 axe pro feednecks are a larger diameter version of the Sniper/Resurrection/Vanquish feednecks which all properly fit a Spire. Kee told me the change was intentional.

My 3 different Spires didn't work with either of my 2015 Axe Pros - Kee had me send them in to put new (older style) feednecks on them. Now I'm happy to be able to use my Spire without shimming my feedneck and cranking down my screws on it.

Apparently Empire is making changes to the new style feed neck so it fits everything again. They made a post on another thread. I am just trying to figure out how to get that new feedneck and when it will be available.

Update: Picked up the z2 and it still spins no matter how hard I crank down, it's not that bad but enough to put tape at the bottom for grip. I didn't even notice how smooth the inside of the feed necks were, which is the source of all hopper problems. Every good feed neck I ever used had some kind of threading which held everything in place. I'd mill it myself if I could but tape will do.
