Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month7 of 7 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
Shocker, Automag, and a slew of other paintball equipment from 5 or 6 years ago.
I listed the shocker and automag based on configuration (automag) and rate of fire (shocker)
Marker Setup: Invert mini, stock
Trigger will be my first purchase for this marker
I'll probably buy a barrel. The stock barrel has been working great but I would like to try a slightly longer barrel, maybe 14"
Internals worked great but I've read some good things about a few aftermarket bolt and springs. I'll give them a shot soon and add a review.
Strengths: Shoots fast, zero kick.
Gentle on paintballs
No external hoses
Weaknesses: Trigger slop
The fixed asa doesn't give much for tank configurations
Review: With the exception of the trigger, the rest of the marker feels surprisingly similar to my automag. For me this is a giant plus and a big reason why I was attracted to the mini. Before it arrived I looked at loads of upgrades but after using the mini a few times upgrading parts doesn't seem all that important. It exceeded my expectations
Only complaint is the feel of the trigger. Not so much the action, (actually fires really nicely) but the side to side slop. When I'm actually playing I don't even notice it but when I'm working on the marker it's more obvious. It's not enough of a complaint to keep me from recommending this marker. Overall works great.

I read a few posts that said it had too much kick but this is completely crazy. I took video over the weekend that I'll add to my youtube page soon that shows absolutely NO kick when shooting this marker. very steady and accurate when firing at field speeds (between 280-290)

The mini is very easy to shoot fast. I'm usually pretty conservative with my paint but I found myself emptying hoppers much more quickly than normal.
Also, after a few cases of paint I had NO chopped balls. giant plus.
Conclusion: I would easily recommend this marker. If you like the layout of the automag this gun will feel very familiar. Great deal for the price
9 out of 10
