ok so my friend/ team mate just bought a mini and every 1 at the field we shoot Timmys are all like DUDE I hear those are kind of nice gats but is not so good in the actually good shooting gun range so we been testing it out for a while and it was my turn to use it. so I am a front man and this mini is CRAZY light with my halo and 45/5000 so I book it up to the center lay down and shoot 3 times. I see paint drooping down the feed neck... so I was like great posted until I got shot... we tore the mini apart cleaned it same with my halo and ran back out there so I book it to the center lay down again and guess what didnít even shoot I turned eyes off and I started chopping worse then a spider shooting paint thatís been on the ground (no offence)

and well it shoots nice when I was in the Crono but after that little experience went wrong kind of set me in reality

so what do you think it was guys cause I have no clue to turn it on I held the button until the light was blinking my halo was perfect the paint is our paint that is good cause out of the bag i tested it to see if it was good and dropped them and it was great. I didnít jam the gun down in the ground when i got there or anything.

so not the paint
not the hopper

I donít know guys about this MINI it seems like a great concept and maybe a good back up gun but I donít think I am going to be getting one unless thereís a firm reason why this is happening to me and other people I hear it from?!

It also needs to be broken in. Adjusting the settings and tuning the marker would be a good idea as well. Put some time in on these forums and read all the stickies. Make sure the eyes are on next time as well.

if your dripping paint down the feedneck you're obviously breaking it before it gets to the marker. I suggest you check your hopper again. Check everything feeding into the marker for burrs and try different paint anyway. A drop test isn't the same as the Halo cone forcing paint into a marker. Try an egg (less pressure on the stack). Then you can start blaming something in the marker (like poor eye logic).
No paintball in the desert. :-(

Other people with blowback issues haven't been able to use a halo, try a vlocity and if is isn't fixed then it probably some eye trouble
I like matrixes
Its all good

It's proly blowback, in which case you need a new poppet. Simple, fast, and easy process.

unscrew the back cap of the bolt, take the golden looking peice out of the bolt (popit) clean and lube this peice. Put it back and MAKE SURE ITS ALL THE WAY IN! that will probably fix it.

probably blowback. a bunch of them had poppits with the wrong size hole in them which created it. try the 2 ball test just to be sure. don't be discouraged by this, the mini is a great gun.
