I purchased my first Mini when it first came out. I immediately fell in love with it when my PM7 went down at the Chicago Open in 07. I proceeded to destroy the opposing team with the very underrated and unvalued Mini.

To this day, I always try to have a Mini amongst my stock of guns. When the Axe was released I feel everyone's prayers were answered with the addition of a nice On/Off, upgraded software, and push-button bolt release.

One of the most important factors in making the gun perform well is the addition of an aftermarket barrel - but that's really it!

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.
