DP g4 vs. Mini Invert

Liked allot of what the g4 has to offer, but I've heard allot of negatives about it, too, mostly that it winds up broken half the time. Mini is a bit more expensive and tiny, but seems to have a ton of fans. I'd like to keep it under $350, it's my first electronic marker, looking to break into speedball a bit more, but still play a little in the woods, when the chance arrises.

I'd choose a v3 mini over a g4, but they both have their issues at times.

google "dp g4 vs invert mini" and click the first link... (there are also over links as well.

I would go with a Dangerous Power G4 over the Mini. They did have some out of the box issues, but once fixed are good markers if maintained correctly. I loved mine when I had it.

Also, the main reason I would choose it over the mini is because the mini's size was very uncomfortable to me. Aside from that there is a few things about the G4 I like over the mini such as the RAPs.

Well actually my friend just bought a mini and i told him to get a G4 its better. I have it and love it. Like two days later we went to a field and someone there had a mini who chopped all day the guy didn't even play. Today, we were shooting around and his started having problems. He relubed the poppit and bolt and fixed it but I would with out a doubt say G4 everytime

Unless it simply doesn't fit for you ergo wise, I would get the Mini 100% over the G4.

I feel the g4 is better for me because im a bigger guy. It really comes down to what you feel fits you best and is the most comfortable.

I've returned to pballin' some months ago. Bought an used G4. Played REC several times with it. It got tons of sand, etc. and the only thing I did is to squeege and clean its bolt. Still working great

The only problem I see is that it consumes lot of air (compared to more pro markers). PS: I don't see/hear any air leak

Both are great beginner guns. They each have their problems but that is to be expected with a "budget" gun. I have shot both and in my experience the g4 has more actual problems where the Mini has more nuisances ( horrible trigger, no on/off asa) things like that. i would personally get the Mini and if you have a little extra cash later on then upgrade the trigger and the asa. After that I think you will be happy with it.

G4. More out of the box features and relatively cheaper. With the money you save by getting the G4 you can get a nice barrel kit, hopper, or air tank.

Almost. You are still going to have to upgrade a few things. Mainly the trigger and ASA.

G4 = better asa, feedneck, reg, and is cheaper.
Mini = no macro line, better quality control.
