I've had this gun for quite some time now and it has never let me down. It has to be the funnest little gun I have ever played with. It can keep up with the Egos and Geos, but of course isn't as good, but it's a great feeling gun when it's in your hands. It's light, it's small, shoots great even with the stock barrel (as long as you use good paint), and it's just overall a great gun. The only complaint I have for Empire, is that they didn't do a healthy job of the programming. You have to pull the battery door off, which requires an allen key to remove the screw which is also extremely tiny, and press a little button and the marker has to be off. It becomes a major pain in the Set aside from that one little flaw, the marker is super easy to take apart and clean, and adding a Virtue OLED board solves the hard-to-program problems. I think anyone looking to get into any electronic guns for the first time, or even just one to play on a scenario or woodsball field, needs to look this gun up and purchase it!

Empire Mini Used a friends mini years ago when they first came out. Was a great gun for the price. Perfect for a beginner, especially younger kids with small arms.

Its not a bad gun iv been playing for about 12 years and have been doings turnys for about 5 year. Its a realy good marker i like it i had a few problems with the noid so had to get a new one and got a j&j barrel its so much better then the one that comes with it. Otherwis its a really great marker iv played in a few turnys with it and its really nice cause i play mid and its a lot better when your trying to play tight cause you got less gun that can be hit. Its hella acuret once you get a new barrel it will be on poin every time. I jut wish it came witht the on/off ans but you can buy now so thats nice. But i would recomend this gun to anyone.

It is a great light gun. It looks cool and is small in the hands therefore making it easy to maneuver easily.
Unfortunately the board or something inside the gun messed up, or the trigger is not adjusted right. Anyway it is a great intermediate gun.

love my invert mini. it is my first gun and the only one i shoot. the only problem i have is with it is that i had to clean the eyes this past weekend and they were a pain to get to because you have to take the whole gun apart. but, it was way worth it because i was actually able to play an entire day with my eyes off and did not break a ball. taking it apart is nothing what i know that even without my eyes i can have a perfect day!

I have to say that I'm rather impressed with this product.

Pros: Durable, easy to maintain, considering its small size and light weight it is well balanced with air tank and hopper, and the manual is pretty simple to understand to learn the ins and outs of the basic functions of this marker.

Cons: trigger magnetic return seems a little weak but easily fixed with an extra 1/8th rare earth magnet. that is about it.

I would recommend this product if anyone is getting started and is serious about playing paintball.

Bought a Mini as a Christmas present a few years. Loved the look and feel of the small frame. Got the dust white form ANSGear. Has been a great little marker especially for the price. Stock barrel wasn't great, but thats to be expected. Just started messing around with the internals but didn't feel the need to do that immediately for my style of play (recball).

Wish it was a little easier to field strip (should have gone with an Axe I guess). Also the feedneck came loose pretty quickly.

Overall an excellent marker out of the box, small frame makes you a smaller target. Would recommend to anyone starting out.
