i have used a spider electra and a ion but neither compare to this gun
I own a black mini and i have a dsx pulse hopper and a regular 3000psi nitro tank
a barrel might help the accuracy if thats what you are looking for
Electric if you dont know what to do dont mess with the board
this gun is a fun gun to play with its fast shooting light and easy to manuever the only problem with this gun is that it is an electric gun that not alot of people know how to mess with the board so if you dont know wat your doing dont mess with it other than that the gun can own, I have one myself that i play with and i love it the gun is on ramping wich is prbably the best setting for it if you arent going all out
overall a very good gun shoots good fun to bunker with and I know Im keepin mine

Uncomfortable for a while
I love the Mini. I wish invert made a woodsball gun. Its great. I went to one of my local fields and had a Tippmann A-5. It had a few upgrades so i went to play some speedball. The only time i had ever played speedball there before was when I had an ion and played one game there. On my team we has ME,a guy with a Ion, a kid with a 98 Custom, and the proshops team:2 XSV SL66's. Everyone was shot . I got to use a guys SL66. I loved it. The next day i looked online and saw the mini and had $460 in hand and bought it. I already had a 48ci 3,000 psi tank and a quantum from my ion since i sold my backman. I got $100 later on because I was going to a tourney and picked up a Halo B. Fro christmas i just got a $250 68/4500 tank. I ot 1400 shots at 24 on dwell and 200 psi
I love it. get it cheap now. however it might leak out of the box but there is a paper to help. just dont break it lol. The SL66 deserves a 10 nothing else.
After 8 cases of paint i think i have formed an opinion on this marker.
IMO the weakest part of this marker are the trigger, followed by its efficiency and finally the kick.
Lets address the 3 issues i had with the trigger. First the feel is soft almost spongy this is in part from the magnetic trigger return. Second the lack of a micro switch make the trigger feel dead, i like the trigger to go click. And the third is the location of the trigger, i feel it's a bit too close to the tigger frame which makes it feel awkward. The only thing fixable is the trigger return, the CP trigger kit comes with a spring conversion kit that works great and puts some snap in the trigger.
Next thing i had a problem with is the efficiency out of the box i got hopper and 4 pods out of my 68/4500. After installing TechT MRT delrin bolt, lowering the dwell and 8 cases of paint later i'm getting hopper plus 7 pods. (about the same as my EOS)
Lastly the Kick....i know its a paintball marker not a firearm, but it kicks more that my Etek which i didn't think was possible. So i run a stainless steel backed boomstick which helps a little. I tried to install the TechT spring kit however, I experienced bolt stick problems so i am using the stock bolt spring.
Well it's not a bad marker but...... it's not a great marker.
The Invert Mini kicks as much as a poppet valve and has the efficiency of a spool valve marker. Plus it has one of the worst triggers I've ever felt. So i'm going to have to give it a 5 rating, it's an average marker.
Also keep in mind that i'm kinda comparing the mini to my etek and eos.
Ok to start this allllllll off. I dont get why people whine and complain non-stop about the mini's blow back. Its not even that bad, unless your like a 5 year old kid. But for its great light weight and accuracy. Its worth the little 5 year old kick. I love this gun. Used is about 3 times. And with my setup. It feels like im shooting with a feather. Im using a dye stubby and a VLocity Jr. But overall this gun rocks out loud.
10 out of 10
