you would have to modify the frame slightly, the empire frame is mounted quite differently.

You'd need to drill & tap the body and countersink the frame for one mounting point or use an MQ valve and an ego frame, you'd probably still need to countersink the ego frame though. Eblade frames are too short to cover both frame mounting points on the empire platform.

This is the part where Empire should have conformed to the WGP compatibility to use existing grip frames like the WGP hinge and E1/E2 frames.

Just using LPR regs, 4way and rams is not good enough.

The other beef I have is the valve is a Piranha valve not cocker valve specs. I have a spare AKA valve that can't be used.

merlin valve spec > wgp valve spec

Eblade frames suck, as well.

wgp merlin spec is not the same as a true merlin spec

wgp uses wgp spec for the lower tube, to add the merlin spec they drill right up to the spacer that the valve spring sit against. i'm not even sure if they go that deep. no other way for them to do it since they using wgp blanks, if they drill deeper it would cause a hole where the front grips screw hole is.
