Strengths: Too long, read review.
Weaknesses: None, nada, zilch!
Review: Ok, well, most of you are probably looking at my gear list and asking "Why is he doing a review on a gun he doesn't even own?" To answer that, the gear list up there is my CURRENT gear. I've owned a MiniMag before, and completely regret selling it, though it did get me a pretty tight 'cocker.

Ok, onto the review:

This thing is LIGHT! People say it's heavy, but I think it's all a mental thing. Honestly, this thing is only 1/2 a pound heavier than my buddy's Icon w/ CP reg. Is that heavy? No! I'll admit, it's not as light as the newer high end guns, but is 3lbs really all that heavy? If you think so, oh boy are you in trouble!

Accuracy:
This thing is QUITE accurate. Very comparable to my 'cocker I have now. I could hit a 4" target from about 80' away about 8/10 times. How's that for accuracy?

Range:
With the velocity set at 285, I could hit up to about 100' incredibly accurately. At about 110' to 150' the accuracy would vary by about 5" to 13". After that, the accuracy was way off, but I could still get it to shoot and still break paint up to about 250' (NOTE: I DID HAVE TO ARC THE GUN REASONABLY TO GET IT TO SHOOT THAT FAR).

Consistancy:
Oh my God is this thing consistant! I'd go all day +-2 in velocity. The valve has an internal regulator, and it's the best on the market. All I did was slap on a gas thru and played my heart out! The internal reg. also lowers the psi down to about 400 psi, which I think is very good. My 'cocker runs at 350psi. I got about 1300 shots off of my 68ci 4500psi

Size:
The size is comparable to a newer Shocker or Ion. Basically, you can't get any smaller than this. It's one tube with a feed port comming off of it. With a good drop forward, you can get into a bunker pretty well. I've had no problem maneuvering it around on the field. It's pretty quick to switch hands, and the single tube aspect makes it a bit easier to aim. Literally, I pulled it up and the body was level with my eyes. Talk about quick targeting.

Chopping:
Well, mine came with a Level 10, so I'm not sure how bad chopping is with the Level 7 or other bolts, but man, with the 10, chopping was completely abolished! I didn't chop a single ball while it was in my ownership. It came pretuned, too.

Colors:
Stock, there aren't many options (unless you go ULE, which I think is over-rated). I just found out from www.automags.org that the bead blasted stainless steel bodies can be spray painted with a Rustoleum type spray paint. So, as long as youdon't mind a matte finish, paint away! Now I want one in emeral green... pretty... or sapphire blue... really pretty.
Conclusion: In conclusion, this is one solid marker. The best I've ever used! I 100% completely regret selling it and am now in the process of buying a new one. It's not very pretty, but if you don't mind painting it yourself, it can be. The only reason I got rid of it was because I fell into the whole "agg" thing and thought I needed a 'cocker. I really miss this gun.
