In this thread we discuss Empire's QA/QC...or lack thereof

First some history of my new gun purchases throughout my life

88 Splatmaster - worked out of the box
90 Piranha (the old pump sheridan based guns) - worked
91 Phantom - worked
92 Illustrator - worked (but was a DG from the phantom)
94 Automag - worked
96 Cocker - worked
01 Impulse - worked
07 Railsx2 - both worked
21 Empire Sniper, Ressy cocker and mini - sadly all non functional on day one

They all had minor leaks which went away after cycling the guns. However:
Empire Resurrection - will not feed paint reliably even with a rotor
Empire Sniper - Gun only cocks 1 out of 4 pumps...pump needs to move the bolt back further
Empire Mini - worked flawlessly for four games and then wont cycle. Has air has power...paint in the breech...green lights...doesn't fire.

To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. 3 out of three. Oh I'll get them all up after some minor maint but I will never buy another Empire marker as long as I live. Absolute garbage and two new players are left with a questionable opinion on the sport. Garbage.

Man sorry about your luck. I've learned with since the invert mini's have two so trouble shooting is really easy. now knowing what usually goes wrong with them I buy em and fix em up for younger players and show them the upgrades from nummech and other stuff that I have installed on my mini's and axes

I believe the issues with the Resurrection and Sniper happen to virtually all of them, there should be threads in this section that can help you fix them. Same with the Mini but I haven’t heard of that issue.
