Empire Paintball announces that pro paintball team, Sacramento XSV, will play the NPPL series with the Empire AXE Marker.
“The team has been very impressed with the performance of the gun,” said Rich Telford of Sacramento XSV. “I remember a time when a great, pro-level marker needed to be out of this world expensive! Times have changed and in the twenty-first century, a paintball gun can be both affordable and ready for competition – and Empire Axe is it.”
Thomas Taylor of XSV said, “The AXE is light, fast, accurate and compact… all the things I need in a paintball gun! For anyone who plays as aggressive and up the field as I do, the new Empire Axe is the perfect choice! I can’t wait to hit the snake with my Axe in 2011!”
Last month, Empire Paintball released the new Empire AXE Marker. On first glance, the marker may look like a Mini, but once the marker is shot, it is a completely different story:
Extended grip and trigger frame and ergonomic grip for maximum comfort
Smooth and stable firing platform with feather light kick
Easy maintenance with unique push-button bolt out back design
Adjustable bearing trigger with micro-switch activation
On/Off ASA with integrated pressure regulator
“Empire is proud to have XSV shooting our new AXE marker,” said Jason A. Taitano, VP of Marketing. “The feedback on the performance of the gun has already exceeded our expectations. From internal field testers, to external reviews, this gun shoots like butter. Having a Pro Team shooting the marker further justifies its high level of performance.”
