yes larger guns are significantly smoother as an overall rule. just look at the clone vs the BT Rap4.
In all seriousness the axe is just updated and more modern, it is like looking at an ego 8 vs an 11. (i dont want to hear the "o but 09 egos were crap" debate here) If a company produces a new model, or discontinues a line for a newer one they obviously see some improvements, no matter how small. The axe vs mini is that personified. They saw areas to improve the mini so they did, no reason to keep making the inferior product. I know the mini has a lot of love out there but the axe is the much better investment.

a axe is a pos unless u put 300 or 400 in it and u can put that in the mini and still save and have the same marker so how is it a better investment u will save 150 or 200 on it.

iv had both if u upgrade both the mini will shoot just as good as the axe if not better for cheaper

And look at the luxe too, its the largest but by far the smoothest

MAYBE dollar for dollar since you get $150 to upgrade the mini. But there is no way you've shot both to compare.

1. Grammar
2. I'm pretty sure pos isn't a word
3. there is no way you tested both at once to really tell, shoot them back to back and you'll notice a huge difference

pos stands for piece of s***. Also you do realize that you agreed with me saying a BTrap4 is smoother than a clone, reading a statement will help with the proper answer but not with post counts if that's all your after.

Also please stop telling people that there is no way that the have shot both to compare, you have no knowledge of that fact whatsoever. If you have a question, ask it, don't tell them that what they very well may have done has zero possibility of being done, lets have a little respect for these guns and the people in here.

I like the looks of minis more. I'm not getting into the argument as the axe definitely has better perks...

I own both and favor the Axe. But, if I feel like going out and playing a tight, hide in the weeds kind of day, I like the mini. Just generally handle the axe a little better.

mini over axe anyday i have big hands
Obviously your hands are too big for your keyboard....

I found moving to a 50ci tank made my Axe a LOT tighter inside a bunker. Definitely better than my old 68ci.

If you are only comparing these two guns, Axe no contest.

Well, you have to take into account the 150$ price difference.

You would have to buy a trigger and empire relay just to start getting close. So I would still say Axe wins no contest.
