I was looking into buying one of these in a couple months. Which one is better? (i know the g4 is about 100 dollars more.) I also know that Dangerous Powers have alot of kick. This is something that i like (just personal preference) so i do not view it as a con.

do not get the g4, the g4 has a terrible problem with bolt stick and dangerous power customer service is awful, so they are not really going to help you if you have the problem. Honestly if I were you I would go used. You can get a dm6 or a dm4 from $160-$250 and they will outshoot anything in that price range. But if your still wanting to buy new look into the invert mini or even a PMR

but once they gun is broken in then the bolt stick is gone and until then you just use a thinner lube and it will help

I've not owned a G4, but I have been around G3s... and I've not been impressed by their reliabilty.. the regs and ASAs tend to cause problems, and bolts like to stick or shred orings.

On the other hand, I've been nothing but impressed by the reliability of the Invert Mini. Only remove the bolt assembly for general maintenance (that's all that's necessary), and be decently careful if/when you take apart the rest, and it'll do great for you. Any problem I've ever had with the mini has been fixed by replacing the two o-rings on the bolt stem (they occasionally wear out and/or swell). Easy fix.

Mini gets my vote, hands down.

G4 in my opinion is a better bang for your buck. it is a more standard gun (having a macroline). also mini's are 3 or so years old now. the g4 is way newer.

DM4s are great, but be aware theat their eye designs are absolutely horriffic. It took my friend, being helped by a very experienced 'baller, six hours to replace his. And he ended up having a faulty pair.

that why you just skip the g3's (unless its a spec-r) and go to the g4

Now I've never owned an electronic marker (nor do I have a particular interest at this time), but perhaps it might be more helpful if you post WHY he should get one over the others, it would be more helpful. :) thanks!

Agree you should go used, more marker for the money.

But Mini vs G4, I'd go G4.
