mini/axe accuracy

i want to know if both of these guns will shoot acuratly on diablo heat paint because that is what my local feild uses and i really want to know if they will be very accurate or not and if the mini will be a good shooter on tournament paint too.

Any regulated marker will have the same accuracy. Accuracy is determined only by the roundness of the paint being shot and the cleanliness of the gear you're shooting it from (hopper, marker, barrel).

Also depends on what barrel you are using, and if it is bored properly.

Just the second part. As long as my Dye UL and PE Shaft barrel are both honed correctly they'll have the same accuracy.

Underboring can increase velocity consistency but I'd hesitate to consider that "accuracy". I think of accuracy as the amount of deviation from the trajectory a paintball should follow without wind, dimples, etc.

a.) it's not the gun, it's the paint. If the paint has been sitting for awhile, chances are no matter what you shoot, it's going to perform like crap. Barrels, bolts will improve the accuracy, but fresh quailty paint and practice is the key to accuracy.

b.) mini will work in just about any tourney from novice to pro, it depends on how you take care of your gear and your skill set. If Tippmann can make a tournament level gun, I would say the Mini is just as capable.
