Empire Paintball is pleased to announce the Vanquish 1.5 update. This update includes re-designed eye covers that use a spring and delrin detent system. This new eye covers eliminate the “rubber style” ball detents and replaces them with delrin spring detents that retreat into the eye cover. In addition to this, the update also includes the new Empire “Soft Shot” bolt, a newly designed bolt tip and redesigned rod with conical spring. The “Soft Shot” bolt further reduces gun movement or “kick” and delivers an ultra smooth and consistent shot. The re-designed face of the bolt tip prevents roll back and is gentle on paint. The new conical spring and rod are designed to reduce pre-mature wear on the rod and extend the spring’s life. The 1.5 Vanquish update has started shipping on all new Vanquish markers.
Empire is known throughout the paintball world for having unparalleled customer service, with many saying “THE BEST” in the paintball industry. We at Empire stand behind our products and reward our loyal customers. We are happy to announce that starting February 28th 2014, anyone who has bought a first generation Vanquish will be eligible for the Vanquish 1.5 update free of charge. You have the choice of either having your current eye covers retro-fitted with the new detents or Empire will send you standard dust black eye covers fitted with new detents. You will also be given the soft shot bolt, new bolt tip, new rod and spring (if needed). Should you be at a PSP event, you may take your gun to the Empire tech support booth where they can give you new standard black eye covers as well as the other updates. (Markers updated at PSP events will not have the option of having the current eye covers retro-fitted). Please use the below contact info or your local Dealer to arrange for your gun to be upgraded.
All markers must be registered with Empire Paintball and must receive an RMA. Please contact us for more information on how to receive your 1.5 upgrades.
