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.

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.
