NEW Vanquish colors on display at PBE

Jamie from Empire was kind enough to demo the new colors of the Vanquish that were released at Paintball Extraganza 2014. These are all LEs, and have some very cool matte\gloss anodizing with impressive masking. contrasting badges and accents. Expect to see more colors come out throughout the season as limited edition releases.

The red gun is NOT available and will NOT be produced--solely a show sample. The lime gun is actually a color-tweaked red one (and both guns are slightly out of focus....sorry).

I agree with you in that 1600$ is a high price tag in any regard
However, i believe there are quite a few people who would disagree with you calling the gun "a turd"

I love my vanquish, I have owned a lot of markers over the years and the ergonomics and shot of this marker are fantastic.

my worst was 38 confirmed welts in less than 8 seconds at EMR Castle Conquest 16. Got back-doored in a building by 2 chumps that obviously didn't feel I would understand being out after the 3rd or 4th paintball. There was so much blood sticking me to my clothes, my jersey had to be soaked with a hose before I could take it off.

Will they do a black with red accents instead of the black with yellow accents?

Now that they've apparently ironed out the kinks and you no longer have to remove the bolt spring for storage its a solid marker. Probably still overpriced but at least it actually does what it says on the tin, and I hear good things about the customer service.

Kee/Empire has incredibly customer service. Needed some help with my TM-15, they sent me out a brand new board and bolt, free of charge, and without requiring me to send the old ones back. Oh, also, I wasn't even the original owner.

But, I'm guessing Kee makes more money off of their soft goods than the markers. There's a LOT more profit margin in clothing than hardware.

Did empire think the color improves performance? This is like painting a toyota prius gold and bringing it to a race track.
