To be fair...that has happened to many clones in the past, along with creeds. BL had a few instances of the g6r feedneck falling off due to it not being a Le to tighten enough. I'm a huge BL fan but things happen now and again to all manufactures.

Oh I know, the axe is still my favorite gun and by far my favorite bolt design.

And now that it comes with a better stock board and a better feedneck, it's MUCH better. The Asa mount is just a little wierd and people tend to have problems keeping it tight

So after a million pages... How did it come to be known as the Vanquish? Originally in this thread there was no name yet?

I was really hoping for the Tomahawk or Hatchet

Maybe the Cleaver.

Better stock feedneck? When did that change?

If I'm not mistaken PE has been using castings since the ego9, which is why the 9/10/11/12 all look so similar. I don't think castings are bad nor do they make the parts looks plain...that's the engineer/design teams fault. they save time, money, tooling (it's aluminum so not as much as steel), material, and the end product is the same.

looks like youre going to have to tear the gun apart like an ion to take the bolt out or may be a hidden pull out bolt.

Or you just unscrew a back cap like plenty of existing guns.

I'm going to assume someone from Kee whispered into a mod's ear to change the title... Name the hype...

Egos are still more reliable. My ego9 is actually super quiet and smooth, and I have not had a single problem with it at all, and have owned it for a couple years, and shot countless cases through it. No maintenance done to it the entire time except for batteries, and lubing bolt/rammer orings. Every time I go into the empire mini/axe forum I see weird problems and such, whereas the go forum has very few threads like that. Next time shoot other guns before making an assumption that the gun you shoot is the greatest ever.

Or 1 axe, 1 Z2, 1 ninja dura pro tank, macdev shift kit, eflexes, and some soft goods for the price of a new ego or a geo. However... The clone GT is amazing.

Or, you can buy an 08 or 09 for less than a brand new axe, and then get all the other gear.....
