You may want to give them a call and ask they have a pretty good ideas of when the parts are expected back.
AnsGear is playing games. I canceled my order with them and bought a Vampire T2. I am done dealing with them.

Think itll come down to more of how you have it set, but running a 48/45 CP (shooting in back yard) I shot a full rotor and used roughly 500psi. Shooting Evil with .680 back.

Spoke way to soon on my sniper and empire.Got mine new aired it up and leaked down the barrel.Pulled everything apart wiped it down still leaked.tried a diffrent reg same results.Uped the pressure to 500 psi no leak.Went back to the shop and they are calling empire about it.Pretty sure it's the cup seal or the valve face it had a few nic's in it.

^^Mine had the same issue. The valve was damaged.


I put in a new piranha gti valve and it works great. I think some of them got damaged in assembly

Took mine out of box and after airing up encountered two issues.

1. It doesn't actually pump 1 out of 3 times I cock it. I have to pump it just right for it to actually bring the bolt back.

2. Leak down the barrel, can't recreate it but that's not a good sign.

Sending back and asking for a new one.

Hey casper,

Try paintball gateway in so cal, they have empire sniper parts listed. Although, you might as well get a better valve.
Empire Sniper Pump Gun Parts & Upgrades

So unfortunate that more and more issues popping up out of the box...

I worried this would be a problem. With the Dealer cost of this marker in the sub 300 range - the assembly and quality control has to be pretty low end to keep the cost this low.
