Empire just permanently slashed the prices on some of their most popular paintball guns. There has been no better time to buy and Axe, Axe Pro or Mini GS.

New Price

Captain O-Ring Players Kit Large Color...
  • O-rings are color coded by size, eliminating the headache of matching up sizes
  • This 360 piece Players Kit contains 18 of the most common sized o-rings found in paintball equipment (20 of each size)
  • Kit includes o-rings sorted by size/color in individual compartments
  • Empire Axe – $399.95 – 13% price cut
  • Empire Axe Pro – $549.95 – 21% price cut
  • Empire Mini GS – $299.95 – 21% price cut

The new price for the Axe, Axe Pro and Mini GS are not specials or sales prices these are the new prices for the foreseeable future. Typically when we see price cuts this deep that means that new guns are coming…Empire says that there will not be a new Axe or Mini at World Cup. Totally wrong check out the Empire Axe 2.0.

GI Sportz, Empires parent company; do have a dealer only trade show in February and I’m betting we will see new Axes, Axe Pros and Mini GS variants then. Updated versions of the guns would make sense. In all the marker categories Empire is being outsold. Planet Eclipse is outselling the Axe with the Gtek and Etek, Proto is outselling the Mini GS with the Proto Rize Maxxed and the Shocker RSX and Planet Eclipse Gtek 160R are out selling the Axe Pro. At a time the Axe and Mini GS dominated their price range, and if Empire is not looking to take some of the market share back they are foolish.
