The Mini is a good choice for a workhorse marker. Light, easy to maintain, efficient and smooth shooting, the only two drawbacks I could find were the time it took to accustom myself to the Hall effect trigger and the adjustment to such a small marker. Can pull more than enough shots to put someone's head down, reliable enough for woodsball while small and fast enough for speedball, and just an all around solid marker.

I have owned 2 minis, they both performed flawlessly, this gun should actually be priced at the 500 price range for its performance and durability, the only thing that isnt quite so well is the asa. it can be better, had a bleed valve or just get an axe relay asa. after about 2 years my barrel has scratches on the inside, from what, i have no idea, but it is light accurate fast and just amazing at every angle. I really liked them and i will stay with my mini.

The invert mini has proved a very good gun especially for the price. It has never had any major problems so no complaints. Some minor problems like screws that come lose during regular play. The trigger also has a little bit of side play to it. Some people also dont like how light the trigger is, but I love it and see that as a pro, but thats mostly personal preference. I also bought an on/off asa which helped a lot cause the stock asa mount broke from a tank regulator malfunction. Overall a very good gun and i wold give it a 9/10

This gun is a great gun for someone starting or someone trying to play forward on the cheap. I have had no problems with the gun in the year and a half that i have owned it. It went into storage when i moved for over 6 months, took it out of the box and it shot like new. A very good gun for the money.

i just fell in love with this gun. Im not a tournament player so i figured i dont really need high end guns such as the ego, luxe, etc. i just find that the mini is a great beginner to intermediate level gun. it may be small for some players, but it isn't so bad if you like to play tight. i dont know what else to say...it's a great gun and you'll get your bang for your buck.

This is my first paintball gun. I bought it used and was a little afraid at first, since my luck with used items never turns out good. I have shot about 4 cases of paint through it and not a single ball has busted or chopped. I switched out the barrel for a carbon fiber one. This gun is extremely light and mobile to play with. Shoots accurate and is great for anyone just getting into the sport. Highly recommend.
