I mean the etek lt is probably going to cost you as much as what you spent and put into the mini. If you are going to get a new gun, if anything, upgrade to something higher depending upon your budget.

I would keep it until you can upgrade to something higher end. The only real reason I would get an Etek3 over the mini would be if you preferred the ergonomics. Even then, I would get a used Ego.

Unhappy

Etek 4 modded shoots just as good as my geo2.05. It's in my sig so you can see the mods and stuff. I love the Etek full body vs my minis tiny body.

Modded? What mods have you done to your Etek4 that makes it shoot like a Geo 2

If you are comfortable with your mini then I see no reason for upgrading. Considering that you have put a little money in your mini, I would assume you do like it.

That being said, I just upgraded from a Dangerous Power G4 to the Etek 4 because I loved the ergonomics and honestly, just wanted something new. I couldn't be happier with my decision, so if you choose to get an Etek 4, I doubt you regret it.

Don't get the Etek4. It was a better gun than your stock Mini. Now they are probably equal. The only thing you would be gaining is better ergos. Look for a used high end gun. You can get one for the price of a new Etek4.
