So I'm not going to waste a lot of time here...

Pros
The gun is revolutionary. After a brief break in period it begins to shoot better and better. Eventually you have a very shoot shot, and a bit quieter and more efficient as well. There's thousands of pro's I can think of, most listed above so check them out.

It's made by KEE, enough reason to purchase this gun right there. BY FAR the best customer service in the business today (and probably many other business' too). You won't understand until you need them, and then you'll be very greatful...

Cons
Some people complain that it may be too small. I don't have any issue with it but I also don't speak for everyone. However, before you ever buy a gun hold it and check a few out at a field or something before investing half a grand on something you've never seen before in person (easy fix...).

No self service on the reg... no biggy, just gotta send it away every now and again to be cleaned (talk about annoying)

The trigger... I personally like the stock trigger, though this is one of the bigger complaints. However, I DO NOT LIKE THE TRIGGER MAGNETS... They are a great idea, but one pops off (and glue only holds so long) as you reassemble your gun or in a game and your gun wont do a thing, well at least not shoot. Buy a few extra and be careful!

Bought my Mini used off B/S/T. Immediately tuned and teched it. Everything was simple. I could disassemble the whole marker in about 5 minutes. I noticed great speed out of such a small marker. It is affordable, fast, has good performance, easy to maintain, and best of all, KEE has excellence customer service ! It has never let me down. I've had some minor problems, but what gun doesn't? Never had anything that I couldn't fix in a few minutes though.

Pros: Good Stock barrel, Small, Light, Easy cleaning
Cons: Trigger
First of all i would like to say that I love this marker, with the new parts in it, it is now a VERY reliable gun (no longer the querky gun it use to be). The first time i used it it preformed great and I was amazing at the Bps i could get out of it and how amazing the stock barrel was, my only reall complaint is the the trigger moves side to side a very small bit and may annoy some people but if you get a aftermarket trigger it fixes the problem. Also id like to add that this gun is INCREDIBLY light, its under 2lbs WITH the battery and barrel!

i have a red invert mini and i just love it. It us pretty air efficent ( I run a 45/4500 tank) and i get about a 2-3 games out of a tank. it looks pretty cool and it has a pretty accurate barrel for a stock. it is very easy to matientce all you have to do is unscrew the back grip screw and the bolt and spring come right out. The feedneck I dont like though. It holds really good but I have a halo B and i had to open it up so much that the feed clamp fell off. I'd suggest getting a new deginz or sanding it down. I just love the trigger so much! It has minimal side to side slop which is OK. I dont feel it. It is very smooth. The board has 4 modes (semi,psp,nxl,and millenium) it goes up to 20 bps. There is only one thing I dont like about the board and ot is that you have to open up the battery compartment to change everything. It is a lot easier on a virtue where you only have to use the trigger. also the light on the board isnt very bright. so all in all i would rate this a 9/10. It is a very good gun for the price.

i still have this gun and it works great. well sometimes i have problems. but as everyone knows that you either get a good mini or a ****ty mini. im in between those. my mini is meing sent to Invert because the threads in the ASA are thrashed and my tank wont screw in. so i have to get a new ASAl:mad and it has also leaked due to a broken o-ring in the hose of the gripframe. but overall i love this gun, but it could be better

My field bought 5 or 6 of these things. All of them needed to be broken in with a tank of air when we received them otherwise they would make hopper soup. After breaking them in they shot great got 1000 shots to a 68/4500. The boss let me tinker with one i got it to do 1300 shots to a 68/4500 by polishing the poppit with brasso and tuning with a big red chronograph( don't try this if u don't know what your doing). Learning to play with settings and knowing how they affect this gun will play a big role in efficiency and how your marker handles paint. This gun can keep up with most tourney guns but it stock it wont do much over 19-20.
