Pictures of the Empire Axe paintball gun should be posted within the next 24-48 hours so everyone can get their pre-order in.


Looks like they will post pictures pretty soon. So you shouldn't have to wait to long.

Definitely curious, but more than just what it looks like.

For example, poppet/spool/what?

We shall see, hopefully soon.

I imagine it is going to be some kind of electro. Kee already has pleanty of mil-sim guns with their BT line. Also Empire tends to be more speedball oriented.

None of which really answers the main questions I'm looking for.

My speculation is that it's a poppet, but that's because most Kee's markers I can think of that are electro are poppet. I can't think of any spools that Kee puts out.

That said, I am curious what makes it unique from the myriad of other poppet electropneumatics out there, both within Kee and also any competitors ones.

I wonder if this is going to replace the mini.

I just found this on zephyrpaintball.com, seems sort of like an upgraded mini. I'm still interested in seeing what it looks like.

Its an upgraded mini. I'd be surprised if Kee put any real effort into it, probably looks nearly identical to minis.

From my understanding, kee is trying to get all its brands under the empire name, which would explain why this isn't an Invert Axe.

So it seems like it's taking an older but popular marker, removing the worst of it, and slapping another $150 on top with a new brand name/marker name.

If the changes are worth the $150 alone, we shall see.

Thal, the changes are probably worth about $50. The fact it says 'Empire' and not 'Invert' adds that extra $100.
KEE is the paintball equivalent to the Borg. They will absorb everyone in to their collective sooner or later...

I was sort of hoping there were other changes not yet mentioned, but you're probably right.

As for the Borg, well, resistance is not futile. Cases in point:

Dye/Proto, Planet Eclipse, CCI, and Macdev all come to mind as manufacturers that haven't joined their collective.

Linux remains where Microsoft and Apple try to rule the market.

The Borg are left crippled but alive on the other side of the galaxy at the end of Star Trek (well, end of all the series)


For all this assimilation talk, I'm seeing some just don't want to comply.

Actually, KEE is (was?) a distributor for Dye. That's why the Ironmen used to use Halo/Empire loaders, RPS paint, Pure Energy tanks.
As for CCI and Macdev, KEE doesn't see them as a threat because of their size. PE is across the ocean (same with Angel). Valken is their only competition right now. Defeat Valken, and KEE will reign supreme in the states.

Or something like that.
