The Invert Mini is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.
Smart Parts ION, does not compare to the speed, weight, even maintance of the MINI. The best part about the ION is the parts that are avaliable. The MINI does not have a lot of upgrades to change, you only have board, bolt, triggers, barrel and thats about it.
Mini Invert, CP 2 piece barrel, ON/OFF tank adapter New Design.
New Design ON/OFF adapter, any .689 bore 14 to 16" barrel (2 piece) i personally recommend CP barrels, and if you think you need a board go for it, but thats not my case, i love the mini ramping mode just the way it came.
Speed, weight, features, maintance.
ON/OFF ASA not avaliable.

Want a really nice gun with a lot of features for under 330.00 go with the mini, if you like upgrading your gun to the maximum (dont buy it) cause you cant do that with a mini, but you wont need to also.
crossfire air tank
Empire Reloader 2 Paintball Loader (May possible be wrong)
Freak barrel (not needed but might want)
Easy to clean/ fix
So I got the mini on my B-day and I loved the look of it so when I go to the field I loaded and loaded it up. When I play a game with it first thing I saw was I got to the bunker faster and I didn't have to hide it as much because its small.
Love it you really need to get it if you want a good gun for less then the Ego.

I'm going to compare the invert mini and the proto rail by my experiences, and things that could and will go wrong with the mini.
Light weight, sensitive trigger, comes with parts kit, spool valve, out of the box ready,
fast, good board and eyes, good warranty, Hyper 2 regulator, cheap
very good air efficiency, balanced, good stock barrel
spool valve could be trouble, many bolt o-rings, composite parts
light weight, eyes, no hoses or wires, has a warranty, relatively cheap,
clamping feed neck, not a bad stock barrel
eye is part of board, no easyly changeable regulator, unbalanced with certain set ups,
not many after market partsat this point, inexperienced brand, not very accurate stock, barrel, front grip
These are the pros and cons for both guns that i found. The regulator i sa as a problem because your going into a tournament and your reg goes bad and you have no backup gun you cant do anything, the front grip seems it can be hazardous because your controls are on the part of the gun that you hold the tightest and receives the most wear and tear. The eyes are part of the board and well your eyes go bad it means replacing the board not just the eyes. I tested the invert someone had, it was ok but it wasn't very comptriple but to me its to small and it seems out of proportion with the set up (mini, halo b, 45/45), its unbalanced with a carbon fiber tank. Invert did make some really good ideas but some they could have left out (hint: eyes part of board ), some of the things they did a bigger company should have used not a new company. I don't hate the invert, i actually wanted the mini first but i loved the feel of the proto, and would recommend the proto rail over the mini. The concepts on the mini are still in progress and was released to quickly, and over the long run i have feeling the gun wont hold up electronically. I would Wait until invert comes out with a new and improved gun, my PMR is the same price but to me is a lot better. Edit: On saturday i sa a kid with a mini (he was like 11 years old) and becides the part that he sucked it wasn't a terrible gun but the for grip seemed like it kept getting in the way. With the for grip the way it is, it was to weired for me and getting used to the feel is always part of the "break in periode" but my proto i picked it up the first time it felt perfect, and still does.
EDIT: my local store recently got in 2 minis silver and blue, and compared them to a stock proto they felt the same the sales person the the invert was heaver, weighed them on a scale and the proto was .009 onces heavyer.
Over all not very impressed with the mini and is still a work in progress, and some of the concepts can be problematic, and overall wouldn't trust it to hold up to long. The Proto rail isn't perfect either but i think it is better and for the amount of problems, and the "work in progress" the the mini has i would have to rate it a 6.

Invert Mini, 48/3000 psi Guerilla Air Myth tank, Vlocity Select Force hopper
Very accurate and fast, if on Auto shoot in bursts..much more accurate
I recently got the new Mini, it is a VERY good gun..a lot better than I expected for a $300 gun. It is great for woodsball, havent played speedball with it yet. Shooting in bursts on full auto is more accurate than holding the trigger. Going on semi is where u get MROF (max rate of fire) at 20 bps, it is an insane gun and shoots great.
Deadlywind fibur barrel
Halo too hopper
Empire on/off asa
68/4500 Ninja Grey Ghost Carbon Fiber Air Tank w/ Ultralite Regulator
no macro line
easy to take apart
This gun is fast easily shoots 20 bps. Extremely easy to clean and field strip in seconds. In the right hands this can keep up with egos pmr any high end marker. If any of you guys are thinking of buying the mini invert I know there are some bad reviews out there but they have worked out all the bad bugs, so dont worry.
I would reccomend this marker to any one

Cp Black Autococker Thread
Invert Reloader 2
With Silver it Scratches Easily
This is the best gun i have ever used. It's compact, quiet, and it's accuracy is phenomenal. If anyone says it is bad, don't listen to them. This is the best gun for its price. The only thing I have against the gun is the changing of modes and speeds. To change the speeds you have to unscrew a piece and then manually change it. But overall it is the best gun out there.
If you have the money get the gun hands down. Don't listen to anyone that says it sucks.
High ROF, light weight, small, easy to maintain/ operate board, reliable, long battery life,
Inaccurate at long distances, inconsistant fps,
The Invert Mini is great beginner/ intermediate gun. This gun can be used for woodsball, speedball, airball, and hyperball. The Invert mini rarely jams, and always fires whenever you pull the trigger. The whole time i had my Invert Mini, I only replaced the battery one time. It was easy to clean, simply take out 1 bolt to access the bolt and clean. This gun is lightweight, and small to help stay behind cover better. However, if you play a back bunker, prepare for inaccuracy unless you get a new barrrel. Also, this marker has gone from 283 fps, to 302 within two shots!
For the money, I definately recommend the Invert Mini. The simplicity and overall feel of the Mini is great for a recreational player.
I got the Invert Mini on my birthday this year, and man what a great gun is it! You see, everyone complains about the gin being too small. I'm a fat man; forget about it. The mini has given me no problems except for a few loose screws, but that's typical. Too much kick? I'll kick you in the face and you tell me which has too much kick. Forget about it. On a serious note, the mini really is above par in todays sub- $300 gun price range. You can't go wrong with the Invert mini.
Love this thing. Just get a new trigger, Board if ya got the cash, and a decent CP barrel, and ya good.

No recoil (im used to it)
Trigger is a bit sloppy
The manual is so small!
I bought this gun back in september hearing good things about it from my local tech and reviews on pbreview. However, i was a little hesitant on buying another high end gun for a low price considering I had purchased an Ion for $229 and I had so many problems with it, finally giving up on it. The first time I used it was at the Tippmann World Challenge at Hell Survivors, and i immediately fell in love with this gun. I even let a few of my friends use it, who happen to be "die-hard, Tippmann's are the only guns to use" type people and they began having second thoughts on these type of guns.
The gun itself is really light and tight and the firepower on the gun is phenomenal! The stock board itself has 4 firing modes and there all excellent (i prefer semi or mill. ramping). There really is no need to buy an aftermarket board for this gun. In all honesty, its perfect right out of the box (be sure to read the manual first to get a better understanding of the gun before using it).
If you want a great product for an affordable price, get this gun!
