Review:

Well, first off I decided to get an invert mini because I tested out my friends and it was amazing! So after I tried it out I called my paintball store and asked how much it was. They had made a mistake and told me it was 300$ when its normally supposed to be 400$ to 450$. So because of the stores mistake I got lucky and I got it for 300$. When they finally got it in stock I went home and aired it up. I shot it and I noticed it had a little bit of kick back and it was sort of unacurate. I had firgured out that it was because I needed to break it in. So after I broke it in a couple days later it was amazing. The accuracy is great now and it rips. Its also kind of nice to have one because everyone at your field compliments you on your gun. I had 7 people compliment me on mine. Its overall a great gun, BUT I would wait a couple more months till they have all the bugs sorted out. Even though mine was great and didnt have any bugs doesnt mean that yours wont have any.

EDIT: Ok. I took my gun apart today to clean it and to lubricate it and I noticed there were four huge deep scratches in my bolt. I called kee and they said that it was from the spring rubbing against my bolt. They told me it wont really mess up my gun but that they would rather send me a new bolt and spring.
Conclusion: I would really reccomend waiting to get the invert mini. Even though my invert is amazing with no problems I think that you should wait a little bit longer to get one so the bugs will be sorted out, then after the bugs are sorted I reccomend getting one right away.

under the Similar products used part I just put all the best guns I tested out. Im not saying they compare with the mini, even though its suppossed to be similar products used, but I put the best guns I tested out so people wouldnt think im a noob that jumped from a brass eagle to a mini.

And btw. Why do you hate the mini so much?

I would feel inadequate comparing an Epiphany to my Mini. For the 400 dollar price range, I think Mini, PMR, and the Fusion all own the Epiphany. The Epiphany can only do 17 BPS out of the box, is heavy, not very nice to look at (IMO) and is really just an Ion with a few upgrades, and no board work. I'm not saying that the Mini is the best out of all 4 in that category, but it is deffinetly the lightest, smallest, and is easliy better than an Epiphany.
