i've held both an axe and my mini which has a ydna foregrip extender. i actually prefer the mini with extender over the axe because with the mini it lets me wrap my hand completely around the grip without going inside the trigger guard. you can get a nicely upgraded mini for less than $250 used.

Thanks guys... that's exactly what I've been thinking!!! But now i'm sort of wondering if there is anything better in the 200-300 range besides the mini/axe....

I've been on the fence on this one... http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...399&highlight=

Also looking at the V3 mini's in this guys thread... http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...ight=blue+mini

I don't mean to be one of those guys who starts a thread "zOmg what gun should I buy yo!" but there's just so many damn nice marker's out there its a bit over-whelming! I've been looking for hours each day through the FST section over the past week and I would really like to actually buy one. I'm trying to stay patient and not impulsively buy a gun. I dont want to end up with something that is going to fail to meet my expectations!!

Don't get any of those minis and those prices! You can get a stock mini for $150 they have absolutely nothing to them if you are gonna spend $250 on a stock mini shell out the $50-100 extra and get the axe purely because of the bolt and empire on/off. I bought a V1 mini and upgraded it and spent less than $280 total. Don't spend over $200 on a V3 stock mini.

Ok cool thanks... I've offered a few people $150 and they basically told me to go pound sand.... It's tough to get one for under $200. I might offer that guy $180 for the blue one it looks really clean and I don't mind throwing another $50- $100 into it for the on/off and bolt

Yes I agree that blue one stood out to me too. I'd try to get it $180 shipped and then get the Empire On/Off Relay and lurker bolt and you'll be set. I would talk to SpeedBallDEVIL for anything you need for your mini. He hooked me up with almost every part and paid used prices for parts that were practically new.

$200 for a used stock mini seems to high. I got a used v1 mini for $130 . Bought the red on/off empire Asa (only color that was on sale at ansgear) replaced poppit and waiting on my lurker bolt. Still around $200. But, it has upgraded parts that most would be changing out anyways. good luck on getting a mini.

Welp went with the blue mini strictly because I felt like it was worth it for being so clean, a V3, and a seller that has 84 positive feedback... Feel good about the purchase without even seeing it yet so I feel like Imade a good decision!

..... Now time to start looking for a few upgrades for it!






Also PM'd him back and added the Freak barrel that matches the gun nicely!

Nice sounds like you got an insane deal there! Good luck with it! Have you gotten it in your possession yet? Check back in when you get to use it... I should have mine this week

That's a great snag there! Freak barrels are always a good option because of their inter-changeable bore size inserts
