This gun is awesome ! In the 3 months I have used it I have never jammed or chopped a ball. It is super easy to take apart clean lube etc. for a mid end gun I would definitely suggest the mini it's is very very cheap if you buy used compared to an ego or geo. I have had absolutely no problems with this gun it's super reliable and always ready to use when I want to play. I have been using this as a speedball gun. Setup : v3 invert mini dusk black , liquid red rotor, 4500 pure energy carbon fiber tank. I have it set at 15 bps and I have been destroying anything I come in contact with. Note I am on an ameture team. Also the gun looks really sexy. The gun works perfect out of the box for a mid end gun. So overall this gun deserves a 5 star rating of your considering buying this gun do it!

Pros: lightweight, maneuverable, easy maintenance,
Cons: the trigger
i just got this 2 weeks ago, i have been wanting this gun for a while now and its everything i hoped it would be. its light on the hands even with the tank and hopper. u can maneuver very well and switch hands beautify. the maintenance is so simple. the gun is very air efficient, but i would still recommend a new bolt, anything but the orange bolt. i did get a cp barrel, anything is better than that stock barrel. the optimus(stock) board it comes with is a good board. i personally dont think you need a virtue board but to each his own. i would also recommend a different feedneck the one that comes with the gun is a pain sometimes. hopper, i will recommend the invert halo too or the dye rotor. new designz makes a on/off for the reg on what ever tank you decide to put on the gun. i would just be cautious of guerilla regs they are cut shorter than a lot of the other regs. so yea i love my mini, i have played with it every sat and sun since i got it. and in one big game so far. shoots beautifully.

Pros: lightest tourney grade marker available
Cons: too small for some
back in 08 my older brother purchased a gen 1 mini from our local proshop as his first speedball gun. he eventually upgraded and it was passed down to me in 2010. i have had the marker ever since and every part on the gun is still functioning. the only thing wrong with it is a very minor leak due to the nylon on the tip of the poppet being worn down over the years. its an easy fix, i'm just too lazy. anyway, the mini has never broke down on me. maintenance is easy, i can usually have the gun entirely in pieces in about 10 mins, and as long as you lube the bolt and bolt guide regularly you are golden. almost every part in the mini can be upgraded and customized to your liking and playing style. the gun fits perfectly in your hands, its easy to snap with, and its consistant. its efficiency is nothing to brag about stock, however, i put a tech t bolt and low pressure spring kit in it along with a little dwell adjustment and i'm currently shooting at about just over 110-115 psi. its a relatively quiet gun overall, but with some upgrades to the internals it can be made pretty damn quiet. the mini is a great gun for its price, its going to take some upgrading to get it on the same level as some of the higher end guns however. if your looking for a gun thats cheap, tournament grade, and is going to work every single time you go to use it, i can't recommend any other gun.

I have had my invert mini for almost a year now and i have to say it is a good gun. Other then i got the sunburst Orange one and i would tell anyone to not get that color because you CAN NOT use it in tournoments. You can not use any orange gun but i will say it is dead sexy. The gun is very reliable and it is very very light weight and easy to use. I can take this gun appart and put it back together before the next game. The only down side to this gun i gave seen yet is the feedneck. It never stays closed. I am going to get a better feedneck. The barrel is also a down side but it is only a $300 gun so you get what you pay for. But if you can get a freak barrel kitg for it i would say this is a good gun.

Pros: great gun for the price, small, lightweight, consistent
Cons: not as air efficient as i wuld like but definately tollerable
I love the mini. one of the best things about it is the price. if i picked it up and played with it, not knowing anything about it, i wuld have thought it was a high end. great for begginers and advanced players.

its small and its easy to keep it tight against ur body and still have a comfortable feel.

it is really consistant as well, it shoots laser beams but it comes with a 12" barrel, which is alright, but i put on my 16" ultralite to really throw the paint down the field

u shuld never have to tear a mini completely down... unless ur wierd, like me, and have to take everything apart to see how it works. the reason y i say this is because the mini is a very well-designed piece of machinery. i would say 95% of seriouse problems are caused by user error. im not just saying that because i love my mini. i say this because i a gun tech at the local paintball shop and wen i ask customers wut they have done to the gun, they tell me they tore it all the way down to clean it and as i take it apart, i notice they forgot a piece or theydidnt seat up an oring right. the only bolt one needs to take off is the on off the back of the trigger frame to clean the bolt.

overview:
the mini is a great gun for anyone. and if u cant live with the littel quarks it has, tinker with it a bit and find the setup thats right for u.

hope this helps you,
Murph
