i want

on/off

better bolt, im afraif the rubber face will fall off of my stock bolt.

new trigger that is more adjustable, less side to side play, maybe customizable magnet strengths, smarter built... meaning magnets arent just glued on top of a screws. If the top adjustment screw that had the magnet glued to it had a cup design so that the magnet could be placed into then it would never come unattached even if you unscrewed it to far

could look into detents

i could prolly think of some more but not at the moment

do the bolt u guys said first,

also next i would like to see a frame design similiar to that of the ul or something.

eventually it'd b nice to see a lighter more consistant reg or jsut lighter, it throws the guns balance off alot other then that theres not much gripe about my mini what i could even change.

How about a stock-looking gauge that is actually useful?

The lighter the trigger, the less magnetic force needed to work properly and not have bounce. That is why carbon fiber is ideal for a magnetic returned trigger. You can have maxium sensivity without fear of bounce. Stronger magnets are a must however for aluminum triggers, but you can fix that yourself for a buck at your local raidoshack.

mine did. calling NPS/KEE tomorrow on the way to work.

my choices.

1. small on/off reg (level would be sick)
2. better bolt similar to the A1 bolt (no rubber sleeve/oring to fall off)
3. triggers (similar shape, but roller bearing and better magnet design)
4. grips
5. detents/covers
6. something to make the guns run on lower pressure (90-110 psi)

1 reg with less mass
2 conversion kit to allow the uses of a micro-switch (instead of the hall-sensor)

the microswitch thing would be a bit tricky, as the way the marker is layed out, it would basically require everything below the tube to be replaced, with hosing, electronics in the frame, normal inline reg, and basically an entire new marker.

I'm working on bolt designs at the moment. Looking into something other than aluminum. Ertalyte is good, if cut with the proper speeds and coolant. Delrin isn't quite up to the task. If I go the route of replacing the bolt guide as well, that opens up many more possibilities. My first testing will most likely be a nylon or ertalyte clone of the stock bolt, to simply see the effects of weight reduction alone. According to solidworks, the stock bolt (minus orings) is around 12.5 grams. The same bolt in ertalyte would be around 8 grams, both weights including the rubber tip.

I'm honestly very pleased with the mini as it comes stock from Invert, so I'm excited to see what we can do to improve it.

I appreciate everyones input thus far. I'm glad to see the community is active and supportive. I'll post again when I have more to update!

If you go to a polymer bolt, you should look into a coated spring to reduce wear.

because i like the feel of a microswitch trigger.

did not think it would be that difficult to design/manufacture a conversion kit. for all that element states is involved, one could install a predator morlock board.
