New Empire Mini GS - real pictures added - VIDEO




Pictures from 7paintball and airsoft, and behind the bunker. What are your initial thoughts and impressions?

The GS is the new reskin of the Invert Mini for 2014--featuring new colors, some updated features, and overall nice upgrades that make the gun a fierce contender at its price point.



The new GS has an overmolded, color accent coordinated front rubber grip and rubber grip panel that is a nice, supple rubber but still tough and tear-resistant.



The trigger has seemingly gotten more ergonomic, and the grips are a HUGE improvement from the previous generation--and each new model comes with a color coordinated front\rear grip set.



The feedneck has been updated to the Empire Sniper-style feedneck, which is less prone to breaking--it uses a threaded stem that engages in the body, and then a collar-style QD cam-lock feedneck that clamps over the stem.



The Mini GS now comes stock with a flip-lever, self-venting on\off ASA.



Slimmed down, easy access back-cap, also color-coordinated.



Revised barrel milling, one piece, 14" barrel.

Looks excellent from our first impressions--check back on the PbNation Youtube Channel for more video coverage about the Mini GS.
More pictures

damn I feel stupid after just literally buying an axe. Looks sweet I guess, also a decent about of space between the trigger guard and grip. I predict a longer thinner axe. More comfortable frame+slight efficiency.

If the grips feel like the ones on the Axe and the trigger isn't ****ty I'd love one at the same price point as the mini is now.

Even if it was just a front grip it looks like it has screws on the top and bottom so it would mean a new foregrip anyway not just a slip on.

There are only a hand full of us on here that know what that means, completely. I do agree though.

Looks interesting to say the least, I really wish someone could/would do a live feed from PBX. The suspense and little teasers are just killer.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
