The better question is: "Does it need to be on par with that gun?"

The answer: No

They both shoot 300 fps, they both ramp at 12.5 bps. They're both small, both light, both spool valves. Upgrading that gun and/or buying a better gun is not going to make you a better player. With all the stuff you've already added you ought to have a pretty nice little toy.

Spend your money on paint and field fees.

^He is right, except they are both inline poppets.

Gonna agree with the people above. Last time I played was in a local tournament and I used a gen 2 mini (with on/off and aftermarket bolt) while a teammate used my axe. There was never any point throughout the day (or any time I've ever played with it) that I could honestly say that I would've done better if I had a more expensive gun. As long as you like it and it works, i'd say it's good to do whatever you wanna do

I guess all i would really be buying is a microswtich trigger then and the same gun. i guess i will just stick with my favorite little marker until there's a major advancement in it from empire.

Seems like you got some good upgrades there. I don't see a need to upgrade to a GS you should be fine with your gun as it is.

I've owned both a Mini and a GS. Not a huge difference between them, if you already have the on/off ASA, it's basically a wash. Lots of the GS features are for convenience and aesthetics. If you're looking for an upgrade, either a nice axe or an axe pro would be my recommendation. I upgraded to an axe pro and was very impressed with the platform.
