Question Axe Upgrades Worth Getting?

So I'm getting my Axe in two days, completely stock and I have read all the upgrade lists for the axe/mini and man are there a lot of upgrades. But I can't exactly get all those upgrades, so what are some of the best buys to get, and I have about $75 to spend. Thanks!

most people will say either boss bolt w/ spring or lurker bolt.

I would suggest buying a Lurker barrel first.

Yea, I saw the Lucker and Boss bolts, which one is better of the two for a smoother shot? Not to worried about efficiency.

Both are great products with great companies behind them. I prefer the Lurker bolt, but some people feel like it requires more tuning.

Okay, I'll look into getting a Lurcker Bolt very soon, and what do you think of aftermarket triggers?

For $75, you can get the bolt of your choice (Lurker/Boss) and a Lurker barrel. I'd say snag those and you're set for a while.

Lurker barrel of your preferred bore size
Violent trigger (if you don't care for the stock trigger, it's preference)

Go shoot people. The stock Axe internals provide great results.

I agree, stock internals unless you crave something else and good barrel, cant go wrong with a freak, ultralite or something of that caliber.

I agree with Irony, Lurker barrel and if you like to tinker Lurker bolt. Stock will work if its new, shoot some paint with and good bore barrel. Run maybe 8 to 10 cases and than you can fine tune your marker with bolt, feedneck and trigger.

I run a stock trigger and it works fine for me. I also have Lurker bolt and barrel and it is whisper quiet, so quiet players ten feet from me can't hear it. Matching the bore imo is the most important first step. Settings 1 1/4 turns out, 160 psi, dwell 5ms.

Foregrip extension, 30 bucks, done. Best aftermarket part ever made for the Axe.

I guess you could spend your last 45 bucks on a new barrel if your stock one really wont shoot.

I'll add one more thing to the list:

Empire clamping feedneck. I just replaced my CP feedneck with this and am very happy with it. I much prefer being able to unclamp my feedneck instead of unscrew it. It looks great, matches the gun perfectly, sits against the body (which looks great) and allows the loader to sit as low as possible.

That feedneck, a Violent trigger with nylon stop screw, threaded trigger pin, and matched Lurker barrel make for an awesome Axe.

i have thew boss bolt with spring kit, exalt grips, empire sniper feedneck and getting the empire super freak set. amazing setup. also wanting the get the violent series deuce trigger with threaded trigger pin and then im set, heard good things from violent. for sure the first thing is to get the barrel of your choice since the stock bore is very large and doesnt have the most porting
