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.

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.
