Hey guys. I need some help again. I some some people saying how a G3 is a great marker and most perferred it over the mini. Here is what I am looking at in the marker (from highest to lowest)

1) Quiet
2) Consistent
3) Light
4) Air Efficient
5) Size


*Keep in mind, I am 5 foot 3, 110 pounds. I don't want a huge gun with a 92/45 tank. I think I am going to get the Ninga 50/45 tank and maybe a Rotor. Not decided yet.

Thanks guys! :dry:

1) Quiet-G3, being a spoolie, it is naturally quieter.
2) Consistent-I would have to say it's a tie, both have good regs to keep them consistent
3) Light- Both are under 2 lbs
4) Air Efficient-G3 gets about the same efficiency as a DM, while the Mini gets the efficiency of your average poppet~1400 shots off of a 68/45
5) Size-Both are super small, super light guns.

1) Yea, but the Mini is quieter than most poppets.
2) Eh, I like the mini reg better. It does a lot for how it is.
3) "
4) G3 gets between an Ion and a DM. Mind you its only a refined unbalance spool.
5) "

^agreed. Ive shot and handled both and i have to say i like the mini a lot more.
I own a dust green one now and its never let me down! Granted one of the main reasons i went with it was the overall feel and balance of the gun. It just fits better in my hands then the g3 as the grip seems to be slightly taller (not sure about that exactly but it sure feels like it.) granted im also a pretty big buy so this may not be a problem for you.

I think the Mini is a better performing marker overall. As long as you know what you're doing with it, it'll treat you more than right. I've experienced both the Mini and the G3 and the things I noticed were:
-The Mini was noticeably more efficient. I had it tuned (dwell and input pressure)...
-The Mini shot smoother and quieter than the G3. The stock barrel seems to make the Mini sound loud and choppy, but I had a Bob Long barrel on it and that was amazing.
-The G3 was more comfortable in my opinion, but not by much.
-The Mini was WAY gentler on paint. Not sure what it was, but I didn't get one break with my Mini through about 6 cases. The G3 broke around 3 or 4 per 2000 balls shot.
Yup...
