I've been a proud owner of my mini since 2007. I love it's simplicity. Cleaning and caring for this marker are a breeze! And with a few upgrades it keeps up on the field with all of the heavy hitters worth many times it's MSRP as well. I've got a Virtue board, NDZ bolt as well as a UL on mine and I couldn't be happier.

I took the gun out of the box and the light weight blue me away. I emidiatlly took my tank and put it on it (did after I was done lubing it). I shot about a thousand balls through it and I liked to see how it didnt break a ball. I love to use it in the snake and at a dorito because you can shoulder it close to your body. So without a dout this gun is a terrific gun for the price. Highly recomended!

This was my main gun for when I played speedball tournaments back in my highschool days. At first I had some problems with it, but after fine tuning it, it shot very well for the price. If you throw in some upgrades (new trigger, board, spring kit), and tinker with it, it will not let you down. I still kinda regret selling it, but I plan on purchasing a new one soon.

It is an amazing little gun I have actually owned over 20 invert minis to this day. It is one of my favorite guns to work on and build. It is great for beginners who may not know how to fix the guns right. It is easy to fix any problems it has and the tech company is the best in the business. Overall its an amazing gun.

This happens to be my first speedball gun to own since i started getting into it more. and i think this gun is a great choice for anyone looking for an easy to maintain, easy to clean, and accurate marker. Buying them used might be a little risky. But you cant beat it for 200 bucks

So i've had my mini for around 5 months now and have put around 4-5 cases through it... It is very compact which helps keep your arms and upper body in tight and close together, and it is reasonably light. You get what you payed for in the fact that it is very easy to learn to use and yet it is still a great marker for the beginners. It shoots fast with a decently small amount of kick . My only problems are that the trigger is so sensitive that you can shake the gun and it shoots, but that is easily fixed with a little maintenence. The only problem i can't do anything about is my ASA, it came loose and i tightened it and put some locktite on it, but when it came loose a second time i tried to unscrew it a little and i crossthreaded it and accidently stripped the screw but its in tight now... Overall i would get it again if i was to re-enter paintball

this gun is nice i bought off some kid for $150. I no longer have it but it was good. I liked it for playing dorito and snake it was close and tight making snapping good when close to the bunker.the thing i didnt like about it personaly was the feel of the grip. i also have an 09 slg and i like the feel of the UL frame the mini was square and didn't fit my hand comfortably but thats all opinion. It's a good gun and a great gun if you can rip someone off and get it dirt cheap.
