Is the Mini trigger guard really that bad?

Hey guys,

I just picked up a Mini in a trade and I'm going to use it as a back up marker. I've never had one before so I'm reading this forum like I'm on crack trying to learn everything I can. I was reading the Axe vs. Mini thread today and A LOT of people mentioned the "small trigger frame".

That got me to thinking so I pulled out my Clone GT and compared them. The GT trigger guard is *slightly* bigger but not by much and I've never heard one person complain about the trigger guard or being able to fan the trigger. So I was just curious if this is just a perception thing or if there are actually people out there that have a problem shooting the Mini due to the guard.

I'm really not trying to start an argument....it just seemed a little werid once I looked at the Mini and GT side by side. I would think if it were a problem the GT would get the same complaint

Its the fore grip position in relation to the trigger/guard. If you are 6' tall you probably have hands to match, and your fingers may run into each other at times. I didnt really have an issue with it being stock. I did add the grip extender and the drop forward though. The extender just to have the option, and the drop to get my tank regulator out of my wrist. It has a nice tight feel with both and I really enjoy it.

The trigger guard on the Mini didn't really bother me to much because instead of wrapping my hand around the regulator, I just allowed my thumb to sort of rest on the feed neck. It fit in my hands pretty nicely, just takes some getting used to if you're coming from a larger more stretched out marker.

I guess it really comes down to how you hold the marker.

This. I'm also a short guy (5'7") so it doesn't really affect me either way.

I think people call it small because they are comparing it to the Axe, which has the most amount of trigger guard room of any marker I can think of. It seems people like to find reasons not to like the Mini when it's a great gun in it's own way.

I used it for one game to get the feel of it last Friday at leagues and I didn't find any problems with the fit of the marker while playing.

I love my mini. I have noticed that in paintball many people just fall in love with whatever they have and then talk trash about everything else until they actually try it.

even tall people shouldnt have a problem. im 6'2" with matching fingers and ive yet to notice anything. unless these complainers just have serious sausage fingers, theyre doing like steve said and are just complaining about what they dont have.
