Whats up errrybody??


So, I plan on purchasing a used Empire Axe off of trademygun.com


​One of my favorite selling points, is that Empire has an official youtube channel; and has videos for completely disassembling and reassembling the Axe.


Besides lubing and cleaning; what are some key factors I should be keeping an eye out for? 


Should I be replacing every single o-ring?


While I'm in there, are there little things I can do to make it feel or perform better?





i feel that my usual - picture of a super fine fem from the 90s in a show of appreciation is mildly sexist so; how about some korben dallas lol

You can tune it after you've had a couple of cases through it. Like it should be worn in. When replacing o rings, you only need to fix broken ones, unless you want to completely rebuild your marker when it comes in.
The axe also has some bolt upgrades that are really nice, such as the lurker bolt or boss bolt.

Whenever I get used guns, I like to give them a full cleaning, but I don't bother with replacing o-rings unless they're damaged. If you get it and it shoots fine, then you're pretty much set.


Here's a good tuning video:

Tune? Ain't nobody got time for that, just throw the back cap 1.25 turns from fully in and adjust velocity through the reg.

Done deal
