Had a problem with leaking once on the gun. Easy fix just had to reset solenoid, but loses a star for reliability. Other than that smack a heavier barrel on it as the gun tends to rise with kick. Great gun and great value! Try it out first though

I first got this gun about 2 years ago, it being my first gun i was super excited to get on the field with it. And when i did i had an absolute blast, i recommend this gun to anyone who is first starting out in paintball. This gun really is talked bad about but i never had a problem with mine, yes this is a very quirky gun. The first generation mini's had a lot of problems, from the gun turning off to it turning into a Campbell's paint and soup machine (ball chopper). But the newer models are much better and fixed up. The stock barrel isn't really good, i recommend buying a new barrel (i bought a 14' cp one piece classic) Other than that this gun is awsome!

Pros: Great bang for the buck
Cons: Board, size
Had my mini for a little over six months now. Overall it has performed great for the price. Great gun for beginners/smaller players.

Performance: Performs well on the field. Doesn't sound too loud, I haven't really noticed any kick on the gun.

Reliability: About three months after I got it the board just decided to quit. Empire was great and sent me another one without any problems. Doesn't require a lot of maintenance, just every once in a rare while put some lube on the o-rings.

Ergonomics: To me personally, I don't really like the feel of the gun. The back grip is uncomfortably small to me. I think it would be great for smaller players though.

I've had things gun for a little over a year. It is definitly starter friendly. I've played against guys with high end markers and kept up with them with ease. The only negative thing about the gun is that the only problems I've had it started with the solenoid. Overall good starter gun and is a reasonable price.
