This is a great marker. This is a fast little marker that you can find for pretty cheap. They preform really well right out of the box. My only reasons for getting rid of it was that the trigger was very sloppy and when I tried to cap it for my tournament it would not cap because of the trigger. But it is a great recball marker and I've thought about getting another.

The Empire Axe is what the Mini should have been in the first place. This gun is so small that even working on it sucks, let alone shooting it. Really not a fan of ANY of the features of this gun. No real redeeming qualities for serious paintballers. For newer players looking to get into a new gun, skip the mini. Stay with the Tippmann or Spyder until you can afford something better.

I honestly think the mini is underrated. A lot of people judge it by the early gens an say oh the mini sucks an all that. I love the mini it's my backup marker it's a nice little gun that can shred if you have fast fingers.
The mini in my book is a great marker!

The empire mini is a very amazing gun! I have taken it to the field multiple times and it has yet let me down. I have used it for about 2 months and have not had any chops. It also seems very efficient. With a 50/4500 tank I usually get about 1000-1200 shot per fill. I have to agree with the others however that it is quite small in the hands. It's not too much to complain about though. The best thing to do is just go to your local shop and try it out. Also, the trigger seems quite loose. It does not have a "springy" feel to it. Lastly, there is no ASA. They do have an upgrade but it will run you around 70 dollars or so. All in all, I love this gun. The trigger and ASA does not take away from the mini's greatness!
