Etek 4, not 3, vs empire axe. Both bone stock. I cant decide. I have shot both and i like both but the axe feels slightly better in the hands. Furthermore, i like the PE packaging, like, alot! That humongous rebuild kit, 14' barrel. What turns me off about Etek 4 is the macro line (and what i like about the axe is the macroline-lessness(lol) ) Thx for feedback!
