Empire Mini For my first mid grade gun I think it's awesome. Routinely out shoot players with more experience and more expensive guns. Extremely durable. Easy to take apart and maintain. Recommended Upgrade:...

For my first mid grade gun I think it's awesome. Routinely out shoot players with more experience and more expensive guns. Extremely durable. Easy to take apart and maintain.

Recommended Upgrade: For being a gun that you can pick up cheap here are a few things that I choose to upgrade. The gun out of the box it good enough and ready to go.

Barrel: 14"CP barrel, J&J barrel kit
Trigger: Violent series derlin trigger
Bolt and Spring kit: Tech T springs and lurker bolt.
ASA: Empire on/off ASA
Board: Shockwave board now standard with new Minis. Makes changing modes much easier.

I've had this gun for a couple years now, works great, and have not opened it up once. Just adjust velocity and go.

Not quite as consistent shot-to-shot velocity as guns that cost three times as much, but still very good.

Looks like a paintball gun. Has a gas-through grip, so no hoses, but no adjustment of tank position either.

Adjusting settings is OK, but not spectacular. Have to open up the grip and press one of two buttons and count LED flashes - which can be a bit of a paint when the LED flashes 15 times to indicate ROF or some such.


Overall, great bang for the buck.

Pros: light, fast, reliable, compact
Cons: needs a on/off ASA, access to eyes
the marker is a great marker for its price range. the light compact design makes it great for any player. very easy to maintain with the exception of the eyes which could be easier to get to. the mini really needs to come stock with an on/off ASA. but set aside those aspects of the mini and the marker is perfect for any situation, I've only owned it for 3 months and have never chopped or broken paint. the mini will work perfect for either a primary or backup marker, being very reliable you don't have to worry about having problems with the marker.

Empire Mini This marker is my favorite that I have used so far. It's never chopped a ball or faltered yet. This product has made me watch news about empire, and any new things that they release.

Pros: Accurate and Consistent
Cons: No On/Off ASA, Programming, Size
This marker is by far my favorite "low end" electronic gun. The accuracy is great, even with the stock barrel and it fires very consistently. The only cons are that there is no on/off ASA, you have to remove the battery compartment door to program, and it's a bit small for bigger players. Other than that, the gun is very reliable and durable. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a marker in the $300 range.

Overall, I love my mini. It can be a brat sometimes and it shoots like crap. But when it does shoot right, it is a beauty! The modes are nice, kinda hard to change. Don't plan on changing them mid game! Asmuch as I complain, it is a very nice gun! Great job Empire!!!
