I got this gun when it first came out, actually was one of the first to preorder. My upgrades included NDz Tri Flo delrin bolt, Stinger paintball design grips, 14'' stiffi, and sp inline on off. I was incredibly impressed with this gun, for such a low price.

Pros:
- Extremely light
- Can shoot incredibly fast
- Little kick
- With new grips, the feel is AMAZING
- Deadly accurate with stiffi

Cons:
- Stock grips make shooting uncomfortable
- Stock bolt is not that efficient (mine wasn't consistent either)

Overall, A+ for the price

Empire Mini I have loved the mini since I bought it. Overal, it is the best marker I have ever had. I only had one problem with the trigger magnet, which was an easy fix.

The mini is a great gun for people who are into tournament play and need a quality marker that will not fail them. Being one of the lightest markers out, it is easy to hold and shoot. The marker itself performs amazing, nearly on the level of other $900-1100 markers.

I would recommend it to all.

Pros: great packaging, nice efficency, very light, small
Cons: trigger needs some ajusting, no on/off asa
when i first got the gun i was shocked that invert had such good packaging. You take off the lid and there is a piece of foam protecting the gun, take it off and there is the gun. Under that there is the barrel, the tool kit and the barrel plug. When i saw that i was incredibly suprised that invert put a barrel plug in there. WERE NOT GOING BACK TO BARREL PLUGS ANYMORE!!!. ok enough with the packaging more with the gun. A couple days after i got the gun i had an asa problem, it was loose. it was pretty easy to fix. all i had to do was take off the grips and tighten up a screw. so that was pretty easy. but the thing i was trying to tell you is that if something is wrong with it it is incredibly easy to fix! another great thing is the clamping feedneck witch is good for any person with an automatic hopper. One of the bad things is a no on/off asa witch gets on peoples nerves.The gun is great for airball( because of its small profile) The gun is also good for woodsball(because of its lightness)That is about all i can say about the mini and PLEASE RATE!

I had a Mini for about 4 months, and I was quite impressed with what this little marker had to offer. At first I thought it might be too small, but after playing with it I actually like the way it felt. The Mini is a unique marker and some of the highlights are:

Size/Weight- The Mini is definately one of the smallest/lightest markers out right now, and Invert did a good job of making it small but not too small for comfort. Also Invert did away with the external macro line by running the air through the gripframe, which creates more room for your hand to grip.

Performance- The marker shot fine and I had no problems with chopping or eye malfunction. I used the stock barrel and it was decent for a stock barrel, but it shot much better with an aftermarket barrel with a smaller bore size.

Maintenance- The Mini requires very little maintenance, just a quick lube of the bolt guide after playing.

Overall I think the Mini is good for someone looking for a mid to high end marker that is small, light, and reliable.

I give it 7.5/10

I believe the Invert Mini can compete with guns such as Matrix's, PM's, and Eteks right out of the box. Although there are not many upgrades available for it yet, you wouldn't need almost any of them (new barel possibly) anyway. It starts out at a great price, specially if you buy it on the Nation or other sites used; along with the fact you don't have to pump money into it like some other guns (*cough* ion *cough*). Very good value.

Well, first off im loving my Invert Mini and it rips. I've had a couple problems and one was my detent blew out but I have no idea how, it was replaced though so no biggie. Also I had an old magnet set up but KEE is sending me one right as we speak. From when I have fired it I had no detent in but when I got it and took a pod full boy was I happy with its performance. I think it shoots like an ego and I love how you can change your firing modes within seconds. Overall this is a great gun but wish I waited a week longer so I could get it for 325 but 400 is still a good enough deal for this gun!

Hello,

I bought my mini when it first came out, and i sold it right after i bought it. The mini is very small, and very light. That is a plus but it also came with some negatives. My mini was ALL over the chrono, and the space between the trigger and the guard so so small with my large fingers. For me the mini just didnt cut it, for others its a beast. im giving it a B++
