Empire simultaneously revolutionized and reinvigorated the entire industry when they conceived and released what they have (correctly) dubbed the “Workhorse of paintball markers”, the Axe. Designed to perform well beyond its price point, the Empire Axe has a slew of features that have helped propel it to a tournament winning paintball gun.

Unlike most paintball markers, the Empire Axe has a gas-thru design that hinges on the innovative Relay regulator. The Relay functions as both a regulator and an on/off ASA. Combining these two features helped Empire’s engineers to make the Axe as light-weight as possible. Gassing and de-gassing the Axe requires only a flick of the easy to use lever. As an added safety feature, the Relay also completely vents the Axe when disengaged. After traveling through the Relay, air then travels directly to the valve through the air transfer tube contained in the Axe’s grip frame.

The Axe’s grip frame itself runs nearly the entire length of the marker’s body assembly. Over-molded grips extend the entire length of the trigger frame and feature hourglass style molding and a tacky surface for comfort and a secure grip. The ergonomic design of the grip frame gives you a steady platform to shoot from and features a spacious trigger housing to accommodate even the largest of hands.

The Axe’s trigger uses a humped design. The comfortable, economic shape of the trigger helps maintain constant contact with your shooting fingers and ensures as little finger motion as possible goes unused. The shape of trigger and the roller-bearing pivot point mean your fingers will never tire from shooting streams of paint at your next practice or tournament. For added convenience and customizability, the Axe trigger has four activation points – magnetic tension, front and back travel, and activation point – and uses a micro-switch activation for the most comfortable, responsive, and familiar shooting experience.

A large portion of the Axe’s top-tier performance rests in its bolt system. A high-volume valve feeds the bolt, and enables the Axe’s soft, quiet shot while minimizing recoil, resulting in stealthy performance and consistently accurate shots. To remove the bolt, simply de-gas the Axe, push the release button, twist and pull. To prevent accidental or intentional bolt ejection, Empire designed the Axe with a two-sage safety mechanism. A lockout piston secures the bolt in the cocked position immediately after you engage the Relay system, and the bolt pin’s path inhibits direct release. The low-pressure operation of the Axe’s bolt means you’ll get great air efficiency in addition to smooth performance.

The Axe’s front grip features an ergonomic design that makes it easy and comfortable to hold. The Axe’s main circuit board and battery rest neatly inside the foregrip. The Axe comes standard with several adjustable firing modes and other user controlled settings, and it accepts any Mini board, so you can port over any upgrade boards you may have on hand.

To keep up with the fire rates the Axe can achieve and maintain, Empire included a state-of-the-art vision system. You can lock your favorite loader into the Axe’s lever feedneck and let the paint fly without ever worrying about chopping paint. Self-cleaning Delrin ball detents prevent misfeeds and double feeds.

Aware of the constantly changing sizes of paintballs, Empire designed the Axe to accept Autococker barrel threads. Take advantage of any ‘Cocker threaded barrels you may already own, or complete your Axe with a Diver or Freak barrel system.

The Empire Axe ships in a foam padded cardboard case and includes a complete CD-Rom manual, a quick-start guide, a barrel sock, a parts kit with essential hex wrenches and lubricant, and a 12-inch straight ported barrel.
