Ive had a mini for soo long now it's unbeleivable, when i first got it it broke every day, but after using it and sending it in the only worry i have is an oring. After the first kinks it worked great and for a starter speedball gun it's amazing. i would buy it again if i could go back in time.

Empire Mini If you can deal with the size, then one of the best buys for the under $200 area.

Bought two of them new about a year apart. Both guns were consistent and quiet. Had to loctite the hex screws on the foregrips for both guns after they came loose. Added an extra magnet from radio shack to improve the trigger rebound. Lowered operating pressure with the stock bolt down to 180 and bumped the dwell down. Guns were solid as a rock after that.
Would recommend the boss bolt as an upgrade.

Never could get use to the small size and ended up selling them.
If you like the way the mini feels then go for it. It's a solid shooter.

Empire Mini Great little marker but IMHO it is to small and the trigger is to light for running around and sliding on a speedball field.

I got this gun a year ago.
Pros:
It works pretty well, never really had a lot of problems. The gun is LIGHT. With my CP 16 inch .693 barrel it is fairly accurate. It is alsopretty air-efficient.

Cons:
The stock ASA SUCKS!!!! It cross treaded and now is practicllay impossible to unscrew my tank. The stock barrel sucks as well, definately upgrade it. The stock board also sucks with it's four modes, and is a pain in the *** to change the settings. The trigger isn't good for semi auto trigger walking, but is fine for ramping and full auto.

Overall, its reliable, but it sucks in a lot of things, so I will give it a 6.5/10.

Bottom line: This was my first gun. Great starter. However in two months, making a full year, I will be upgrading to a Dangerous Power Fusion x. So if you can afford the gun as a starter, get it. But you will realize further on up the road that you will want a better gun, which is natural with every starter gun.

My Mini is Dust Black laser etched with Iron Man From Kohn sports. This gun is a great gun if you want an electrical marker but don't want to spend a small fortune. I played with an A5 before and the mini is so much better. It is very accurate straight out of the box and extreamly quiet. I own two minis and would love to have another one.
