V1 Invert Mini is being inconsistent..any upgrade recommendations?

I have a silver V1 invert mini that seems inconsistent. I played with it last weekend and my paintballs were just not shooting straight at all and I was constantly having to squeegee my barrel mid game because of how much paint I was busting.

I am using a Z2 hopper, fresh batteries for both gun and hopper, my bolt was cleaned and properly lubed prior to play, I also use a freak kit and ensure I'm matching up my paint with the proper bore insert.

Temperature outside was about mid 70's so it can't be that, only other thing I can think of is my eyes might have been dirty?

I don't paintball as much as I would like too but I'm tired of also playing with an inconsistent gun when I do play, are there known problems with the v1 mini? Would you guys recommend I just buy an eye upgrade or just buy a newer mini all together?

Check to make sure ur poppet is lubed. If it is a V1 poppet like you say I would def suggest getting a parts kit that contains the new one. Not sure if it would help but it's a start.

Your other option is to contact empire and they may replace it for you.
