If you answer no to the following questions you should take your money and invest in a Marker of higher quality, my vote would go to a Mini, but then again I'm biast since I own one and have seen it perform against Tippmanns.


I'm just replying to this because I want people to know the danger about Invert Mini's. I was talking about the Mini's with my local pro shop and field owner and he told me NOT to buy it!!! So far he's had 3 people at his field that had Mini's and the bolt exploded out the barrel of the gun!!! No this is not a lie its totally true, I swear. Only one person was hurt after taking the bolt in a shoulder. After that he's banned all Mini's from his fields and none of his gun technicians are allowed to work on them. He's right now trying to get the company to recall all them. So do not get one! They have a manufacturing and design default and to use one is dangerous!!!!


lol, Then why haven't I been peged in the face by a mini bolt at my filed, their are at least 20 of them there.

sir I do not assume that you are wrong, however you hold the burden of proof, show me how it is dangerous, prove to me through indisputable proof that it is dangerous and I will agree with you and join you.

and what I think you are talking about is not the bolt flying out and hitting people, but rather the drive train, this can happen when people insert the drive train into the back improperly and then force the screw in, or use the wrong screw. When this happens then I agree with you it can be dangerous, but that is user error not the Mini's fault.

now if you are talking about the physical bolt breaking and flying out of the front, then the number 1 cause of that would be that they were using a derlin bolt with the spring in the wrong way, but again this is user error and not the Mini's fault

so I submit to you in counter-argument that the Invert Mini is not the problem, but rather the user. Otherwise this would be a rampant problem with multiple threads all over the internet.

Okay I'll try looking for a video or something to show you what I mean but I'm really busy right now. Once this damn mandatory state testing is over I'll post my facts on here.

Don't elaborate or anything to make it known you have thought behind your statements. :)

Then why not just use the angel or one of your other markers and save the money/hassle, and stick to somthing your already familure with?



Well I really wanted to keep my speedball and my woodsball stuff separate. I have beaten up markers more in the woods than at the speedball field, plus I want to go milsim for scenarios.

alright well if you want to go milsim and that is the main selling point then just go for an x-7 and make it look how you want it to. It should be just fine for you and the e-grip would work. I just don't personally like it because while it is very milsim, it is low end when it comes to internals, and I would rather have a marker covered in duct tape that performed amazingly and was flawless inside than something that looked good
