I have used a mini and talked to people about them. So far i have heard nothing but good things, as for the G3 i haven't heard anything about them or even seen one.

Thanks in advance-LW

If I was choosing between a G3 and Mini I'd go G3 by miles but personally I'd choose 'other'. I like the Mini's size and I respect what it means to the future of paintball but I don't like it at all. It's very inefficent, it's not a quiet marker, and it's not very accurate (kick, decreasing force poppit - blah, spring return bolt).

personally neither are my favorite markers. I would go for a cheap used dm6 or pm6 or pm7 first, if you wanted spoolers. If you were after poppet guns the mini is a poor choice I think, I have seen several at the field that weren't working. for the price I would get a used etek or a used ego5, much better guns since they were designed to be 700$ and $1500 guns when new as compared to the mini's 400$

I have had any problems with the Mini's operation, there isnt anything to really screw up...

I nevre liked the idea of an unbalanced spool valve *cough*Ion*cough* so the G3 is out of the window for me.

I've had a Mini for a few years now. Love it- shoots accurately and reasonably efficiently, it's quiet enugh, and I;ve had no problems with it of any kind. I still use my other markers ('Cockers, Timmy, A-5, etc.) but more and more when I 'm not playing pump pr pistol games, I reach for the Mini.

Its a hard decision... I don't really like either marker. I don't really like DP spools, and the mini's design just seems weird to me. Out of the two though, I'd have to go with the G3. It has a normal sized frame, still ridiculously tiny and light, and has an amazing feedneck/asa stock.

Spools are generally smaller with less parts and shoot smoother than poppets. Poppets arent as picky on maintenance but are more efficient.

What do you want out of the board? I know that the G3 comes with pretty much everything except PSP 3-shot, not sure about the Mini. Try holding and shooting both of them if you can, that's really the only sure fire way to see which one you'll like more. Oh and then the G3 has that sweet ASA, I mean that things just plain cool.
