It should work just fine, you will just be constantly refilling after every match to make sure you don't run out.

Get a 45/4500 so if you can, you can fill to a higher pressure. I'd also get carbon fibre tank.

Oh ok. I was asking because I wasn't sure if a low pressure or high pressure tank really mattered on a axe which uses low output pressure.

It's recommended that you use a low pressure on the Axe and Mini. It maximizes the life of the plastic seal disk in the ASA.

If you like the small compact size of the mini you should look into getting a 45/45 or 50/45. The size will stay compact and you'll get more shots per fill. As well as being lighter and having a hydro life. They are much more expensive but it's worth it in my opinion.
