^ For everyone who has a freak back, and is angry

Now, I bought a mini with a vlocty jr gangstar'd for like 200, 210. I was retarded and thought it was broken cuz I turned the velocity up way too high, then realized it was fine and awesome.

First the bad:
-Mine has slight leaks down the barrel, but I just have to keep the velocity down, and turn it up after I screw in the tank.
-Can't get a new asa, and it can get a little wobbly, not really bad, but I just use never-seize on my threads and even HP tanks screw in just fine.
-Stock reg is retarded...
-Oh, and it kinda eats air =\

The good!:
Holy crap value? I got an amazing mini that shoots 20bps no problem no chops, its awesome!
I got an ego8 barrel with it which performs nicely, but I just sanded down my old freak barrel and put it on, and it looks sick and shoots nice and straight. I haven't had a serious problem with this gun, sure it has its quirks but its great for the money. I have one of those crappy crossfire 47/3000's, and it eats about 1000 psi per hopper, but I'm not sure what my velocity is at, but it looks around 250-300fps(haven't been ballin in awhile).

Fantastic marker for the money, as long as you're not a ******* without a couple hours to get it working nice.

If you're here reading this right now, you have enough ambition and intelligence to listen to me when I say: Buy a mini, preferably used(cheapness and broken in, mine is awesome) get a nice hopper and a nice barrel, and it should be amazing.

My invert mini is amazing, I won't give it up unless I get a ego9. I have a Planet Eclipse Etek2 and I use my mini sometimes more than my Etek. The Mini is also really accurate, note, I have a freak kit, strap that on and you will never miss a shot

Empire Mini It's been a a good gun to me, but you're going to want to get a least a cp 1 piece barrel. And you definitely want the empire relay asa.

I used the Mini for around 6 months and it shot very well but it seemed to have an internal issue all the time, Lube was hard to find for the gun, It's very tight and hard to shoot, but even though it has many pros and cons my experience with the mini was a positive one and I'd recommend it to people with smaller hands than I.
