Its overall a smoother shooting gun and the quick bolt removal and on/off asa alone make it a far superior gun to the mini.
How do I know this? I dont, its my opinion, but i've heard multiple refs comment on how smooth it shoots and its stock minus the barrel.
I ran mine for the first time this weekend with my Dye UL. I will never go back to a 1k plus paintball gun. Congratulations Empire on fixing the problems with the Mini platform and creating a marker that a family man can afford to shoot and keep up with the big bucks markers. Thank you

maybe the op just wants to get his post count up? lol FAQs and "all gun tip" stickies are always overlooked and r never read. lol.. thats how u make a gr8 thread die LOL
i personally dont have much experience to really compare or actual marker shooting to make a "valid" opinion.. but it OWNS lol.. granted i have only shot mechanical markers as tipys 98, a-5, alpha and similar markers, elec. marker mr2 and now AXE.. lol..i love it and also now recently shot mini.. axe has bigger grip frame and better stock triger and just better "feel" overall i think il stay with axe for a while and also even with the money to buy a 1k+ marker, i am very new to the sport and wanting to get into the sport so u'd understand my hesitance to just jump in the deep part off the pool before myself and friends alike decide if it just a "phase" or a +yrs thing we decide to do..but i think i made a gr8 choice by getting axe.. looking forward to owning again this coming weekend at my local park..
