Huh?

The Sniper sold two or three times what Empire was expecting. There were three people with Empire Snipers at my home field last weekend.

Black Axes are just over 10,000 right now. We have a different serial numbers for different colours and special editions. Without looking we probably have around 15,000 Axes out in total. A lot more Mini's, I wouldn't be surprised if it was 30-40,000.

Empire Sniper is around 3000 units total. It's easy to tell because there was just one colour of that gun. It wasn't anticipated that we would sell over 1500 so that's been quite a success.

We do keep track (although it's not me that does it) so we would know on all of our products.

Simon was nice enough to mod a set of hammer/body/pump kit for me(FUNSI00's gun)
Empire Sniper question/suggestion - Page 3
I was able to back out the IVG .75 turn out out after the mod.


Pump stroke was smoother but not softer
But when you put a heavier hammer in the same autococker you can continue to back it out another turn. Before you know it, the pressure can add up. Smoother is what I'm going for. The stock hammer would have more of a snappy feel which I don't prefer on autocockers. I'm honestly just nit-picking. Since it appears to be such a great gun, I'd hate to see them skip an easy step that could make it an better. Even if it's just that little bit.

The pump didn't sell well that's why they had to do something with all the bodies they made. I guess I'm saying if you didn't like the pump you prob wont like the pneumatic version of it. Just my opinion and really your comparing this to a SFL? you can't compare the time that went into milling the SFL which still has a good resale value on it. These guns will be $200 cheaper in a couple months.
They will still be $550 in a couple months because they don't come out until June. And I agreed that you couldn't compare it to the SFL. Did you not even read my post above?

Ya if they were expecting to sell 60 of them,come on man I play every weekend at SC Village and hardly see anybody using these,people had them for sale on pbn a week after they came out. They tried to include everything with it too a barrel kit,auto trigger,half mill and it still didn't sell good. So I guess we'll see if I'm wrong I'll apologize but I think true A/C fans will notice the difference between the real and commercial A/C's

Of all the things that never should have been brought back- automating pumps is probably toward the top of the list...
